Oklahoma State Cheerleaders Hit the Ski Slopes…Wearing Bikinis (Pictures)

Where was this publicity stunt a few weeks ago?  Had the BCS committee seen these photos before making their bowl selections and giving Alabama the nod over Oklahoma State for the BCS National Championship game, things may have been different.  How can this be ignored?  Mike Gundy may have admitted that Alabama is a better team than his Cowboys, but I don’t see any Crimson Tide cheerleaders hitting the ski slopes wearing their bikinis — do you?  Check out this picture of the Oklahoma State cheerleaders that College Cheerleader Heaven shared with the world on Thursday:

Cold? What cold? Here in the Northeast our ski resorts are suffering badly, as winter is being extremely stubborn and refuses to set in.  Temperatures are hovering around the upper 40s and lower 50s today, but some of the mountains have a few trails open for skiing.  Inviting some local college cheerleaders to hit the slopes half-naked would certainly be one way to drum up business during this difficult time.  Don’t worry, we have more pictures.  Enjoy.

Mike Gundy: I Would Put Alabama Ahead of Oklahoma State in Rankings

With the way it stands, the BCS National Championship game is destined to be a rematch between LSU and Alabama. Assuming all of the relevant parties win out, it should be. LSU is the consensus No. 1 team in the nation and the only undefeated remaining. Alabama, who lost by three points in overtime to LSU on the road, can obviously make the strongest case of any one-loss team. Even Mike Gundy, whose Oklahoma State Cowboys are ranked third, can’t argue with that.

“If somebody sat me down and said (I) had to make a decision, with where we’re at right now, Alabama lost to what would be the No. 1 team in the country (LSU), and Oklahoma State lost to Iowa State,” Gundy explained Monday according to the Daily Oklahoman. “In our situation, if I was doing it fair, I don’t know how I could put us in front of (Alabama) right now.”

Gundy’s calm demeanor would seem to indicate that nobody in the room wrote something nasty about his quarterback or was wearing an Oklahoma shirt.  As College Football Talk pointed out, Oklahoma State has actually faced four teams in the top-25 of the most recent BCS standings and defeated all four of them.  Alabama, on the other hand, has faced only three teams currently ranked in the top-25 and lost to one of them.

Are we saying OSU is more qualified than Bama?  No.  Oklahoma State’s loss to Iowa State was a bad one whereas Alabama’s loss to LSU was as good a loss as a loss can be.  That being said, it would not be insane to make a case for the Cowboys — especially if you’re their head coach.

I think it’s pretty obvious what’s going on here, don’t you? Gundy is afraid of the Honey Badger, and I can’t say I blame him.

Iowa State Goes Crazy in Locker Room After Beating Oklahoma State (Video)

On Friday night, Iowa State kicked off an insane weekend of college football with an upset victory over No. 2 Oklahoma State. They would later become the first of three unranked teams to beat a top-5 team. USC upset No. 4 Oregon and Baylor knocked off No. 5 Oklahoma, leaving a rematch between LSU and Alabama a likely scenario for the BCS Championship game.

After friday night’s game, Iowa State was understandably fired up in the locker room. Check out this video of their post-game breakdown which included a phenomenal speech by head coach Paul Rhoads, courtesy of The Wiz of Odds:

OSU’s Broderick Brown-Shaun Lewis Interception the Play of the Year (Video)

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State brought us an insane shootout on Saturday night that resulted in a 47-71 victory for the Sooners.  Toward the end of the fourth quarter, three touchdowns were scored in well under a minute.  Hats off to Oklahoma for putting together two huge offensive plays toward the end of the game to squash OSU’s hopes of a comeback, but the play of the game — and possibly the year — came from OSU’s defense in the second quarter.

Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones looked like he was trying to throw a pass away when OSU defensive back Broderick Brown went airborne and tipped the ball back in bounds into the arms of linebacker Shaun Lewis.  It was the type of play we’re used to seeing at the goal line from a punt team, but not something I’ve ever seen from a defensive back on the sideline.  Check out the Broderick Brown-Shaun Lewis amazing interception video, courtesy of YouTube user thesportsgeeks:

College Football Player Tased After Getting into Naked Three-Point Stance

If that’s not the most enjoyable title I’ve ever written since joining the LBS staff then, frankly, I have no idea what is.  You just can’t make this stuff up, I’m afraid.  We’ve had our fair share of Taser stories this year, but this one tops them all.  Fear not, Phillies fans, you’re off the hook again with this one.

A 19-year-old Oregon State lineman, Tyler Patrick Thomas, was kicked off the Oregon State Football team on Monday after getting himself in a ridiculous situation that resulted in him being arrested on charges of first-degree criminal trespass, second-degree criminal mischief, and resisting arrest.

According to information from the Corvallis Police Department, at about 4:51 a.m., police were called to 519 N.W. 14th Street after a 32-year-old woman reported there was a naked man in the upstairs office of her residence.

When officers arrived, they ordered him to get on the ground several times, but he refused.

Then Thomas, who had reportedly been drinking, got into a “three-point stance” and lunged at the officers, who Tased him.

Unlike the Phillies fan who rushed the field, Thomas absolutely deserved to be Tased.  After reading the description of the incident, I see no other option the police had in this situation.  I still can’t believe he actually dropped down into a three-point stance and faced officers while he was butt-naked.

My Kids Can Play for Mike Gundy

Because if he defends his players like this after they get ripped unfairly by the media, then he’s quite the protector.

Congrats Mike Gundy, that’s the way to stand up for a player. And as far as Jennie Carlson goes, don’t pick on a kid just because his mother fed him food after a game. To infer he’s a weak player because of one such incident is absolutely absurd. Way out of line.
