New week, new opponent. To Stillwater and the Oklahoma State Cowboys we go. Briles is talking about it today, and so are we.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

It's Monday. That means that we're all dragging, still a little (or a lot, if you're me) hoarse from Saturday, and perhaps a little sullen. But take heart! It's a fresh week and there's a new game on the horizon: the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday in Stillwater, Oklahoma. We didn't learn until late Saturday night when the Baylor Bears would be kicking off, but if you're familiar with our history in Stillwater, you're not thrilled with this result:

Another night game in Stillwater. Joy.

Coaches'* Teleconference

*I'm not sure why but the possessive plural of "coach" always looks weird to me.

The normal weekly Big 12 Teleconference happened earlier, with not a whole lot being said. Ubben had this to report from Gary Patterson's portion:

I hate this for the Frogs. They may be our hated rivals or whatever, but they don't deserve this. After the postgame quotes from an OU player about things being restored "to their rightful order," put me down as one fully behind the Frogs for an upset in Norman on Saturday. Here's hoping Doctson and Boykin can go and are able to be effective.

As far as Briles' portion, only one piece of information that came out of it:

Okay, that DOES seem like good news. But then there was this:

He had another tweet that has since been deleted, but here's a screenshot of it:

A couple of things here. First, his first tweet says he has two "Baylor media" sources saying that it's really bad. Nobody else in the local media has this "information" he's claiming to have. I'm not entirely sure if he means media people WITHIN Baylor or people who cover Baylor. Either way, this information isn't out there. Secondly, I'm not sure that I'm going to trust a "media member" that has a tweet of the vine of Terrell Burt lying down with the caption "worst fake injury award" as the tweet pinned to his profile. I'm not even going to link to his profile. You can click the tweet above if you really want to go see it.

At any rate, I'm guessing we might hear something about it at the 1:00 p.m. press conference. For now, I'm going with what Briles said in the teleconference. Here's the only other tweet of note from it:

Presser Set for 1:00 p.m.

Hopefully we'll get a bit more news from this press conference, both about Jarrett Stidham and the other players injured in Saturday's game.
