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:
#Big12FB: Kickoff time and TV designation for Saturday, Nov. 21 @BUFootball at @CowboyFB game is set for 6:30 p.m. CT on FOX.— Big 12 Conference (@Big12Conference) November 15, 2015
Another night game in Stillwater. Joy.
*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:
Gary Patterson said Trevone Boykin and Josh Doctson are both questionable this week vs. OU. "I'll know more by tomorrow."— David Ubben (@davidubben) November 16, 2015
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:
Art Briles says Jarrett Stidham is a little bruised but will be ready for Oklahoma State.— John Werner (@JohnWernerTrib) November 16, 2015
Coach Briles says that Stidham had an MRI that came back clean. Good news.— Kevin Barrera (@KBScoutBaylor) November 16, 2015
Okay, that DOES seem like good news. But then there was this:
Hearing from two #Baylor media sources late this morning that Jared Stidham is likely out for Saturday against #OKState.— GREG SWAIM SHOW (@GSwaim) November 16, 2015
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:

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.
