Lunch links: RG3's postgame proposal
By ESPN.com staff
- Asked about his decision to punt trailing by nine with two minutes left, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said, "Who knows how poll people look at scores?" reports Jake Trotter of The Oklahoman. Stoops won't be making a change at kicker.
- Robert Griffin is off the market, ladies. Shortly after Baylor's sixth win on Saturday, he proposed to his girlfriend, reports Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
- Texas barely recruited Robert Griffin, and it didn't see him as a quarterback.
- Now is the time for Colorado to call Bill McCartney and coax him back into coaching CU, writes Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post.
- With the effort he's given, Colorado quarterback Cody Hawkins deserves better from Buffaloes fans, writes Kyle Ringo of the Boulder Daily Camera.
- Nebraska didn't see anything wrong with Eric Martin's hit that led to Oklahoma State's Andrew Hudson getting carted off the field, reports Brian Christopherson of the Lincoln Journal Star.
- Teammates are trying to be there for defensive back Trey Hobson, whose cousin was killed over the weekend, writes Mike DeArmond of the Kansas City Star.
- Sean Keeler of the Des Moines Register says if Iowa State goes bowling, the Cyclones' Paul Rhoads should be the Big 12 Coach of the Year.
- Missouri's goalpost made a mile-long journey north to downtown Columbia after the game, and the Columbia Missourian takes you on the ride.
- Texas is saying the right things, but does it believe them? Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman examines the question.
- Oklahoma State is preparing to play one of the league's worst defenses in Kansas State, writes Brandon Chatmon of The Oklahoman.
- Texas A&M may have a new starting quarterback this week, writes Mac Engel of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Jerrod Johnson is, of course, frustrated with the way this season has played out.
- Missouri coach Gary Pinkel couldn't sleep at all on Saturday night, but the Tigers' win over Oklahoma wasn't the reason why.
- Texas Tech has looked like a much better team on the road this year. Adam Zuvanich of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal tries to figure out why.
- Good news for Kansas: Blue-chip running back Darrian Miller out of Kansas City, once the Jayhawks' first 2011 commitment before decommitting, re-committed to the Jayhawks. He plans to enroll in January.
