Blackmon should be a go for Bedlam

There was some concern this week in Stillwater about the status of wide receiver, and finalist for the Biletnikoff Trophy, Justin Blackmon wouldn't be available for this weekend's huge game between Oklahoma State and Oklahoma.  Blackmon injured his ankle in last week's game against Kansas and was reportedly walking around in a boot on Monday.

Blackmon missed practice on Wednesday because of the ankle, but he's continuing treatment on the injury, and as of now the Cowboys expect that he'll be able to play on Saturday.  Of course, that's not a guarantee that he will play.  Depending on the extent of the ankle injury, and how it responds to the treatment, the possibility he won't be available against the Sooners remains.

Needless to say, having Blackmon healthy and ready to go is key for Oklahoma State. Blackmon has 94 receptions for 1,560 yards and 17 touchdowns this season.  If he isn't able to go that will lead a large void in the Oklahoma State offense in it's most important game of the season.

Not just because it's Bedlam and against Oklahoma, but because if Oklahoma State wins then it'll be representing the Big 12 South in the Big 12 Championship Game.

To the contrary, no OU fan is wanting Blackman out or even less than 100%. This is an Aggie way of thinking - wishing virtually anything in order to get an advantage. Every single OU fan wants OSU's team at 100% and playing its level best. Anything less than that only provides a shallow victory. Better bring your lunch pal.

I think the chances of Blackmon NOT playing are somewhere between slim and none!  OU fans hoping he will not be effective should not get their hopes up. There is no way he won't be on the field, and my guess is it will be hard to tell any difference from any of his other games.
