UPDATE: It doesn't look as if OSU is going to be featured on the cover in any way although we will be featured in the magazine. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to return hundreds of gallons of kerosene and cancel my trip to SI headquarters.
A tweet from OSU media relations hinted at this week's SI magazine featuring our beloved Pokes. "Keep an eye on this week's issue of Sports Illustrated, Okstate fans. You're going to like what you see." http://twitter.com/glang1
Personally, I have to admit that I am a believer of the Sports Illustrated cover curse. I know it's a bit silly but last year when Dez was suspended indefinitely one week after being on the cover, I became a huge believer. I also know that it is great for recruiting and overall national recognition. And that's where I find myself wondering if it is worth it.
What do you think? Do you believe in the curse? Or do you think the pub it creates outdoes any superstition?
