The 2010 season has only been in the books for a little more than 36 hours, so naturally everyone has begun looking ahead to the 2011 season.  One of the early favorites in the Big 12 for next year is Oklahoma, particularly with the announcement that Ryan Broyles would be returning to school.  But the conference competition got even stiffer on Wednesday, with their neighbors in Stillwater making some big news of their own.

Oklahoma State has called a press conference to discuss the futures of quarterback Brandon Weeden and wide receiver Justin Blackmon, who were both considering entry into the 2011 NFL Draft.  Fox 23 in Tulsa is reporting that both players will announce their return to school in the fall of 2011.  This is a huge boost for the Oklahoma State, who immediately become a contender in the Big 12 with the duo returning.  The only question for Cowboys fans will be who is going to replace departed offensive coordinator Dana Holgerson, who is now the coach-in-waiting at West Virginia.  

Blackmon, the 2010 Biletnikoff Award winner, led all wide receivers nationally in yards per game, touchdowns, and was third in receptions.  Weeden, 27, still has a year of eligibility left after leading Oklahoma State to a school-record 11 wins in 2010.  He threw for 4,277 yards and 34 touchdowns, completing 67 percent of his passes along the way.  The former minor-league pitcher made quite an impact on NFL scouts, and could find himself in an even better position with another year of throwing the ball to Blackmon.

Too bad OU can't match up in anything but football. OSU is still 4th nationally in all sports, only behind UCLA, Stanford and USC in national titles. Not a bad record for a step-child. The NCAA doesn't list the second 50, so OU doesn't even register on the chart. Too bad! Oh yea, and congratulations on getting invited to play a no name football team at the Fiesta Bowl. You finally won one!!!

IT DOESN'T MATTER

OSU is the ugly, red headed, ba.....rd stepchild to Oklahoma.   They say this is a rivalry.   When one team has won 82 out of 100 games and only lost 16 with 7 ties, how can you call that a rivalry?   This is the big brother kicking the living s.....t out of the little brother for 105 years!   Plain and simple.   OSU can bring back Barry Sanders and anyone else....they have always been and always WILL BE a DISTANT second to Oklahoma.

But perhaps you can get a BCS bid to the Fiesta Bowl.   We'll be in New Orleans for the title game!

Blackmon, who is a beast probably saw AJ Green and Julio already coming out and decided it would be worth more money going out next year (Although Jeffrey is in that class among others).

Good for OSU, I know prior to this season most had them at the bottom of the South because of all the new faces.  They played above expectations last year, and keeping their best player for another year puts them near the top of the Big 12 for 2011.
