    Next years schedule just got more difficult

    Blackman and Weeden are returning....

    Record-setting Cowboys Blackmon, Weeden staying at OK State - NCAA Football - CBSSports.com

    I thought that Blackman would go to the NFL without question and same for Broyles at Oklahoma. Both of those teams will be really good next year.

    I don't understand this either, maybe they should talk to Claiborn(sp?) from Iowa and see how that worked out for him.

    That was Robert Smith and I think he is a little nutty putting A&M 5th. But they will still be good as will OSU now with these two staying.

    You have to think Texas is going to rebound too but even if they don't OU, OSU, and A&M all look like top 10 teams that we will be playing next year

    And we know Iowa is going to be top 5

    I think the whole NFL CBA unknown is playing a part in all of this. They don't want to go early and find out they aren't playing FB at all.

    They're probably better off going now and risking it vs waiting and dealing with a rookie cap, though. WAY too much money at stake for a lockout.

    Re: Next years schedule just got more difficult

    Personally I don't know if Blackmon is going to be a high draft pick anyways. He needs to shown that he isn't a 1 year wonder. He doesn't have elite size or strength so he needs to improve on both of those. In a year where the draft is as deep as the Pacific Ocean with wide receivers, he could've been told by the NFL that he was going to be a 2nd round pick.

    Ouch...I get this from Weeden, his age is the only reason I think he should have considered going this year. I think the year will help his draft status but Blackmon is hands down the best WR in the country, IMO. He has nothing to prove by coming back, it probably has more to do with the depth at WR in the this draft than him thinking he needs another year. To me he's the scariest guy on our schedule.

    He got moved into the 1st round of the NFL mock boards. He doesn't have Elite size but his strength is impressive for a WR.

    AJ Green or Julio Jones make good cases too.

    From all the things I have read it looks like there will be a rookie cap starting this year if/when the new CBA gets signed.

    Re: Next years schedule just got more difficult

    How did it get "more difficult"??? It seems to me that if they're staying, it remains the same rather than getting easier.




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    I think most assumed that Broyles and Blackman were going pro. With them staying it will be more difficult than originally thought, when it was expected they were going pro.

    I see your point, but I think you saw mine too, and decided to make your post anyway

    Ask Mizzou what they thought about playing here in November. Everyone that has not played football will argue with me, but weather conditions DO affect the game and this game is scheduled for November.
