Turnover margin still key in Big 12; just ask Oklahoma State - CBSSports.com

Cool article here examines the role of turnovers in games involving Big 12 teams. Oklahoma State learned last year just how valuable a positive turnover margin can be.

Anyway, this is an interesting look at just how crucial turnovers are.

GoPokes takes a look at the state of the team. I like the idea of this position-by-position breakdown. It should be a good way to monitor the team's progression throughout the year. The areas that stick out after last week are clearly the line play and secondary.

The front seven on defense also struggled and the secondary got shredded throughout the night. Check out the article for more analysis,
