Huge comeback by Oklahoma State

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Call it a small victory for the Big 12. Oklahoma State's incredible 30-29 win over Texas A&M was somewhat bigger.

The decision makes it more likely that the conference title would stay with it into to next season. Had A&M won, the Aggies could have taken their last Big 12 title into perpetuity to the SEC.

A&M president R. Bowen Loftin told CBSSports.com Saturday that the school's move to the SEC will be done "shortly."

That wasn't the issue when the Aggies blew a 17-point halftime lead, losing its fourth straight to the Cowboys. Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon blew a certain third-quarter touchdown when he fumbled into the end zone from A&M's 2.

That only affected the point spread. Oklahoma State ran 37 plays to A&M's 11 in the third quarter in overcoming a 20-3 halftime deficit. Call it the biggest backtrack by the Aggies since "committing" to the Big 12 after the upheaval of June 2010.

It would be nice to keep the Big 12 title in the Big 12 going into next season. For now, Oklahoma State becomes the chief contender to No. 1 Oklahoma in the Big 12. Their game is still more than two months away but it was impressive that the Cowboys won the first game between two top-10 teams in the Big 12 in two years.

Hahah -- I think your post speaks volumes about you and your day that has gone to hell in a hand basket   - if calling Gundy dumb helps you feel better, have at it!!!  Sorry your odds on Blackmon didn't work out - now sette down and try to seperate yourself from the genral public--- probably should lock yourself in a room, wipe away your tears, and relax. Tomorrow afternoon on your Pizza deliveries, it will all seem better.

p.s. - I think Raymond (or the Rain Man) was a pretty cool character - but then again, if you have to relate to people with mental disabilities to make yourself feel better (and I can definately see that from your post) - it's ok.

Gunny is a very good coach and entertaining but those of you Cowboys dreaming of a national championship are more than a little delusional. What I saw today was a good Texas AM team that us about two recruiting classes from being great. On the OSU side I see a program that has peaked and will struggle to maintain their current success. I would enjoy what you have right now and not talk too much smack. I mean if Oklahoma isn't good enough to get in the PAC 12 without Texas what does thatbsay about you? Don't even start on my team we have last year's national championship trouphy in our case and a winning record over our in state rival over the last 30 years. Take home some hardware and join a conference that isn't run by Texas then you can talk some smack.

That was an amazing game..... maybe the most entertaining so far in this young season.   The Cowboys beat a very good A & M team.  Chalk one up for the Big 12.

Hey FortyAcres, you can only hope that Blackman was on your team.  I'll take all his gaudy stats, playmaking ability, and one blunder(in today's game) any time.  His stats and reputation as a playmaker make you and your last post look DUMB.

Now go get drunk and whine to your Aggie friends on why your football players screwed up this game.

Gundy strategy, if you want to call it that, didn't fail. That does not qualify said strategy as wise.  It doesn't make Gundy innovative, gutsy, sure of himself or anything except DUMB
Yeah, just like he had the confidence in that same player to run into the endzone ending the game with a safety? Unlike Sherman, Gundy is a winner. Gundy is a terrific coach and recruiter. He also was one helluva college QB.

 Dodd, not only are you a horrible reporter and writer, but you're a total hypocrite. I remember you clearly stating Gundy's recruiting and rep will suffer after his Youtube classic ripping that incompetent female sports writer, you so predictably defended. How's he doing now, genius?

Since then Oklahoma State has become a legitimate top 10 team and BCS threat. They have one of the most exciting offenses in college football and are a perennial 10+ win team. That 100% due to Mike Gundy's recruiting and coaching. However, you are too arrogant and clueless to write a mea culpa.

I hope the Cowboys go on to win what maybe the last Big 12 championship and even win a national title. Then maybe you'll finally give this man his due. He's got his players back and they have his. The only back you have is a hairless and spineless one.

Fortyacres: A little grumpy that your team got whooped in the second half, are you?  Sour grapes from an Aggie fan?  Hee, hee, hee, I am enjoying your silly comments and your petulance after aTm's "Aggie-nizing" loss.  ROTFLMFAO !!

Huge comeback by Oklahoma State

  Who was the dumbest person at Kyle Field Saturday?  You are thinking Justin Blackmon who tried to showboat his way into the end zone and as he changed from carrying the ball in front of him with two hands decided to switch to the left so he could pump his right arm into the air, and could have easily cost his team the victory?  If you guessed Blackmon you would be wrong.  The dumbest, stupidest, human being has to be Mike "Pick on me, I am a man, I am 40 (now 43?)" Gundy.  Coach Gundy rewarded Blackmon's immaturity and ego by giving the duty of receiving the last snap and then running into that same end zone and hopefully out of it, running out the clock and giving A&M a safety.  Gundy is the man, alright, the Rain man, the boob of college football, the man you love to make fun of.  Oh yeah, he wanted to show Justin he trusted him.  Yeah, that's great.  Shoot, we had the odds that Blackmon would trip and fall with a second left at 2 to 1 and even odds that he would lay the ball in the endzone for the Aggies to win it in regulation.  Gundy strategy, if you want to call it that, didn't fail. That does not qualify said strategy as wise.  It doesn't make Gundy innovative, gutsy, sure of himself or anything except DUMB.

Spank you very much A&M for the memories of us beating your Benedict Arnold butts 4 straight times.  Get ready to be Arkansas or Mississippi or Mississippi St.
