The countdown is on at AthlonSports.com, with the website previewing its Top 25 and providing a hint of what’s to come in its summer magazine, coming to newstands near you very soon.
In a show of consistency, Athlon places Texas A&M one spot ahead of the Cowboys at No. 11. The folks at Athlon had previously picked the Pokes for third place in the Big 12, behind the Aggies and Oklahoma, which has yet to be revealed in the daily countdown to No. 1.
Behind OSU, the only other Big 12 squads in the Top 25 are Texas at No. 24 and Missouri at No. 25.
Along with the Top 25, there’s plenty of other fun nuggets to peruse. Athlon produced several lists, including one for the 10 greatest Cowboys in school history. Hint: the top two, no surprise, are running backs. Still, there are some interesting picks — Zac Robinson?
What about your top 10? Who would you include in your list of the elite all-time?
And what about your greatest Cowboys moments, another feature, along with a time-honored tradition borrowed from the magazine that features OSU cheerleaders through the years. Too bad UCLA didn’t crack the rankings!
There’s even a sneek peak at what you’ll find in the magazine preview, with a look at the cover and the question, “Can Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon do it again?” Weigh in on the online debate of who has the best offense in the state of Oklahoma?
Lots to look at and ponder, filling a May football fix as we prepare for the arrival of the summer football annuals.
