Lunch links: Shots fired by Big 12 coaches?
By ESPN.com staff
I have the toes I have. Let's just leave it at that.
- Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy sensed his team needed a little levity. His solution: Skipping Sunday night practice in lieu of some standup comedy for the team. Awesome.
- Did Dana Holgorsen take a shot at Charlie Weis on Monday? The Charleston Gazette's Dave Hickman looks at that and Weis' jab earlier in the day.
- Weis, meanwhile, is happy for his former players who are on their way to the national title game now.
- Cedric Golden of the Austin American-Statesman says Mack Brown is the picture of a broken coach right now, and if body language is an indicator, his team's in trouble this week.
- Mike Casazza of the Charleston Daily Mail looks at how West Virginia's offense can confuse defenses.
- Bob Stoops talked about the prospect of sharing a Big 12 title for the first time at Oklahoma, but even if the Sooners win it outright, they may be angling for a trade to the Sugar Bowl, instead of the Big 12 tie-in Fiesta Bowl.
- Mac Engel of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram checks in on the state of Texas' program. It's not pretty right now, and it all comes down to the quarterbacks, he writes.
- Why can't Tavon Austin win the Heisman Trophy?
- The Associated Press checks in with a national story on the Big 12's nine bowl teams.
- Who is Texas' quarterback of the future? It's anybody's guess, and the future's hazy, writes Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman.
- Oklahoma receiver Kenny Stills and Oklahoma State receiver Josh Stewart got into a brief Twitter spat this weekend, writes Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman.
- The Red Raiders are enjoying a little down time of almost two weeks before bowl practices kick into high gear, writes Nick Kosmider of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.
- Oklahoma State's offense has to take some responsibility for the loss on Saturday, too, writes Jenni Carlson of The Oklahoman.
- Baylor's already bowl eligible, but the Bears are hungry for more, writes John Werner of the Waco Tribune-Herald.
- Texas Tech's offense has been troubled without TE Jace Amaro, but he may return for the bowl game, writes Tim Griffin of the San Antonio Express-News.
