Let's Get Pasted is a place where we periodically post a collection of mostly Oklahoma State links, quick thoughts, and hopefully one day, a haiku. 

One link goes on the front page because I actually wrote some stuff about it.  That's all it takes to hit the front page around here.

Orange-circle_medium 2010 Football Season Predictions! - Bring On The Cats
As if we needed it, more proof that every fanbase comes out of fall practices just as optimistic as we do.  I'm not saying any of their predictions are incorrect... but I must chuckle at the wide margin of difference in the perception of K-State and O-State within the respective fanbases. When I made my predictions here, I said OSU would drop a trap game either @ULL, @KS, or @KSU against a team we should be much better than, and the comments section pretty universally disagreed with me.... and rightly so.  We see ourselves as a much better team than a Kansas State.  Yet over there, they look at the Oklahoma State game as a winnable game.  The two sides couldn't be much further apart in their perceptions of their own team and their 10/30 opponent.  I just find the universal fanbase optimism across all schools and fans to be remarkable in college football... and honestly it's one of the things that makes the game so damn entertaining to follow.

Orange-circle_medium I have found that, like us, a lot of other SB Nation blogs are trying their hand at the podcasting.  I am a big fan of this medium when it is done correctly, so I figured I could link to a few that I have listened to recently.
