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.
