it’s high noon...

Brandon Weeden joins the Oklahoma Breakdown podcast:

He joins the show to talk about his career, as well as this OSU team.

The interview started with Weeden talking about his career. “College wise, I feel like I’ve had a hell of career except for maybe one game,” Weeden said. “I would like to have one game back. We’ve all had that experience where it’s like “God ya know you’d like to have one back”” Unfortunately mine cost me the Heisman trophy and it cost me the chance to play for a National Championship, so it was a big one.”

OSU stats to look out for in the Tulsa game:

Underdog Dynasty wrote their preview for Saturday’s game against Tulsa. Here’s what they had to say.

If stopping Hubbard and Wallace isn’t too much for the Tulsa defense, Oklahoma State utilizes a dual-threat quarterback as well. Spencer Sanders is not the typical Mason Rudolph, Brandon Weeden-type quarterback we’ve seen in the Gundy era. Sanders is the first Cowboy quarterback to rush for over 600 yards since 2007. The reigning Big 12 Freshman of the Year is back with a year of experience and his top target. He completed 63 percent of his passes for a freshman, throwing 16 touchdowns compared to 11 interceptions.

Sanders’ confidence should flourish this season, especially with each of his top three wide receivers returning to the lineup. Dillon Stoner stepped up to become the Cowboys’ top receiver after Wallace was sidelined with the injury and Braydon Johnson excelled as a deep threat with over 21 yards per catch last year. {Underdog Dynasty}

Cormier test positive for COVID-19 before UFC match:

Former Oklahoma State wrestler Daniel Cormier revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 a month before his fight at UFC 252.

The positive diagnosis came a few days after Cormier’s teammate tested positive for COVID-19. The former two-division world champion initially tested negative on July 3 but felt sick and fatigued as days progressed. On July 8, he was found to have the coronavirus.

One piece of equipment Cormier used to track his resting heart rate and body temperature, which helped lead him get retested, was his Oura ring. The ring monitors pulse, movement and temperature, “delivering a holistic picture of your health,” according to the product’s official website.

The NBA distributed Oura rings on its Disney campus, though the device’s ability to detect COVID symptoms is still being studied. Cormier is now a paid spokesman for the device. {SI]
