Happy Hump Day everyone!

First off, I would just like you all to know that I am typing this up as I fight through an injury. While in my early-morning golf round, I was mercilessly and savagely attacked by a swarm of bees. I did nothing to provoke this as far as I know, and I gave the maintenance guy and the group behind me a good laugh as I kicked off my shoes and threw my hat as I ran across the green trying to escape.

I am suffering from two stings, both on opposite sides of my left ankle. I would appreciate all your thoughts and prayers. I’m looking into legal action for this mugging. Now, in other news...

Hayden Woods Sets Record

Oklahoma State junior Hayden Woods set the 36-hole record at The Riviera Country Club in the second round of the U.S Amateur on Tuesday.

He started the tournament with a 6-under-par 64, and followed it up with a 3-under 67 on Tuesday.

Congrats to Wood and keep making us proud!

Big 12 as Automobiles

Ahh yes the offseason. Always a fun time, where people come up with ridiculous posts to help pass the boring summer away. Here at CRFF we’ve had B12 teams as characters from The Office, as well as B12 teams as characters from Harry Potter.

Now, it’s time for B12 teams as automobiles, brought to us by CJ Pony Parts.

On Oklahoma State:

Chevy Silverado

Can’t seem to shake the stigma of being second in the class, but results are still better than most.

Well you know what, I’m a Chevy man myself. You know what Ford stands for, right?


I’ll take the Chevy. Look through them all though, because they are pretty funny. Especially Texas. #HornsDown

Gundy is Top 12 CFB Head Coach

Everyone’s favorite Fox Sports Radio host Clay Travis ranked his top 12 college football head coaches. Naturally, Mike Gundy made the list.

I’d love to give you Travis’s reasoning for having Gundy at No. 11, but he didn’t really say much about it. Here’s the clip if you want to listen for yourself.

Mason Rudolph Added to Manning Award Watch List

Rudolph’s preseason accolades keep coming, as the senior QB was named to the Manning Award watch list.

The Manning Award is presented to the nation’s best quarterback, and is the only QB award that includes how a candidate does in their bowl game.

Rudolph has already been included on the preseason watch lists for the Heisman Trophy, the Maxwell Award, the Wuerffel Trophy, the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award and the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, according to

Ten finalists will be announced on Thursday, November 30, with the winner being announced the week after the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship.

Have a good rest of your week and watch out for bees! They are ruthless and cunning and prey on innocent victims such as myself.
