Lunch links: Liberty Bowl loss fallout
By David Ubben
Hey, how's the date going?
Good, we just finished the MRI.
- Terrible news from Memphis: A bus driver for the Iowa State travel party died of cardiac arrest on Sunday night.
- About 25,000 Iowa State fans made the trip to Memphis, but the loss marred the week, writes Andrew Logue of the Des Moines Register. A foolish penalty from Cleyon Laing sank the Cyclones, writes Bryce Miller of the Register.
- Collin Klein's younger brother is making big strides for K-State in its bowl practices, writes Kellis Robinett of the Wichita Eagle.
- Paul Rhoads divulged after the game that quarterback Sam Richardson had a flu bug and was up the night before the game vomiting.
- Could Trey Millard leave Oklahoma and enter the NFL draft? He talked with Jason Kersey of The Oklahoman about the possibility on Monday. He also runs down the 12 best moments of 2012 for Oklahoma.
- Kansas State defensive end Adam Davis once had to worry about difficulty walking. He's fought through pain to become a big impact player for the Wildcats, writes Kellis Robinett of the Kansas City Star.
- Chip Kelly says Bill Snyder will go down as one of the greatest coaches in the history of college football, writes Tony Adame of the Wichita Eagle.
- Purdue's defense? It shouldn't be much of a challenge for Oklahoma State's offense, writes Berry Tramel of The Oklahoman.
- Don't think bowl games are relevant? Oklahoma State defensive end Cooper Bassett isn't buying it, writes Jenni Carlson of The Oklahoman. OSU has a lot to gain with a win, writes The Oklahoman's Gina Mizell. I'd disagree with that assessment. She also gets you ready for the Heart of Dallas Bowl with a last-minute preview.
