Pasted Optimism is a place where we periodically post a collection of links, quick thoughts, and hopefully one day, a haiku. Click here to view archive.
With Big XII Media Days taking over the week we haven't put one of these together in a while. Is everyone alright? Good. OK, on to the links.
Oklahoma State picked up commitments number 15 and 16 this week. Number 16 being Quentin Sargent who has three of my absolutely favorite attributes for a football player. 1) His name is Quentin.. you show me an unsuccessful Quentin and I will show you a picture of Gundy with tousled hair. 2) His entire name is about as bad-ass sounding as it gets. 3)He is listed at the position of "athlete".
Cowboy Caravan heads to Tulsa tomorrow evening. Here is a short recap by NewsOK of the OKC one from Wednesday. I couldn't make it as I was playing week 1 of my NCAA 11 online dynasty and completely forgot about it, but it sounds like a pretty good evening. A lot of Gundy getting fired up and telling everyone not to believe pre-season projections... Unless they are the 2009 ones that had us as a top 10 team... those are projections we can get behind.
And lastly, Orie Lemon may have given us a taste of the absolutely badassness that will be the Cowboys 2010 poster with a twitpic.
I can't wait to see what Dan Bailey looks like all orange blooded to the left of Orie there.
