Short one today.. I have to get home and start making my special 4th of July baked beans. Everyone always loves my "Independence Beans" because I make em real special. For those that are wondering...I mix liquid smoke and some BBQ sauce with Great Value Baked Beans. Mmmmm...unique n' tasty.
ESPN blogger David Ubben ranks the three-headed-monsters of the Big XII. He puts O-State at #5 behind A&M, OU, Tech, Missou in that order. Can't really disagree as a common side effect of the spread is being weak at the #1 WR position, and our QB is basically a senior citizen rookie.
TMZ once again reporting on potential NCAA infractions. This time it is Kentucky basketball who TMZ says is currently being investigated for allegations that four Kentucky basketball players had illegal contact with an agency. It's great that the news is out there... but TMZ? They have to stop right? We go to TMZ for celeb divorce gossip and Lohan nip slips, not NCAA news. So unless the NCAA accidentally flashed its V getting out of a car, could TMZ please just pass all news like this on to the appropriate outlet?
