One time starter at Oklahoma State, Wes Lunt has been named the starting QB for the Fighting Illini. Lunt transfered from OSU after a grotesque knee injury sidelined him; opening up a three way QB competition between Lunt, J.W. Walsh, and Clint Chelf.

Lunt sat on the bench at Illinois last season to satisfy NCAA tranfer rules, but it looks like he's now ready to take the reins. Ironically and hind sight being 20/20, there's a good chance Lunt would have earned the starting role in Stillwater last season, and would be the front runner for this year as well.

What the College Football Playoff Would Have Looked Like in Years Past

Ncf_bracket2011_576x324

ESPN.com put together a look at what the college football playoff would have looked like from 2004 to 2013.

2011: This was one of the few years that the committee could have just ordered some pizzas, put their feet up, and mailed in their top four. LSU, which was the only undefeated team left in the country after beating Georgia convincingly to win the SEC title, would have been an easy No. 1. With wins over eight ranked opponents, including Alabama, there should be no doubting the Tigers' strength of schedule. The computer and the eye test also agreed on Alabama, as its lone loss was in overtime to LSU, and Oklahoma State, which won the Big 12 championship by drubbing a ranked Oklahoma team. USC's postseason ban would have made the decision even easier, along with the head-to-head result that Stanford won -- at USC -- albeit in three overtimes. Boise State was the only other one-loss team the committee might consider, but the Broncos lost at home to an unranked TCU team.

"I have people who keep me very informed," Gundy said. "I’ve probably read more than I have ever in the last few months to keep up with the Jones’ on this information."

Last night Gundy attended the Cowboy Caravan. Before taking the stage though, he had a brief window to speak with the media. Kyle Fredrickson with the Oklahoman was there. He's been killing it lately with his Oklahoma State coverage.

Reddit's Most Hated College Football Teams By State

Reddit released an map of the United States by showing the most hated college football team by state.

Cowboy and Sooner fans agree that neither one cares for the Longhorns much, but a lot of other folks hate them too. Nebraska isn't even in the Big 12 anymore and they still hate Texas more than anyone else.

Not surprisingly the most hated team in Ohio is Michigan, but what on earth did the Wolverines do to piss off Nevada?

Something weird is going on in SEC country. The State of Alabama hates Bama, MIssissippi hates Ole Miss, Florida hates the Gators, Kentucky hates Kentucky, and South Carolina hates the Gamecocks.

It's also interesting that Montana, North Dakota, and Vermont just don't care about college football. I can't even imagine what that would be like.

Rickie Fowler Impressive Once Again

Only one golfer from Oklahoma State has ever won a major. Rickie Fowler is trying to change that. As the third day of the PGA Championship tee's off, he sits behind only Rory McIlroy on the leader board. At seven under Rickie is two strokes off the lead.

Fowler has finished in the top 5 in the last three PGA Majors, and has shot six consecutive major rounds in the 60's. Knock on the door long enough, and it's bound to open. This weekend Fowler just might step across the threshold into greatness.
