Should the NFL overturn the Packers/Seattle game?

I'm going to say no. As big of a rip job as it was, that's a can of worms I don't think you can open. That pains me, because I like the Pack and it was a horrible call, but I'd vote no.

Oklahoma State basketball is a mess. How does it get turned around? Does Holder just need to look in the couch cushions for cash and buy out Ford's contract?

Well, Ford is upgrading the talent big-time. Nash last year, Marcus Smart this year. But clearly, OSU needs to get better. If the Cowboys don't win this year, it's not good. I don't know if Holder can buy out Ford or not. That's a lot of money for a sport that fewer and fewer fans care about.

In your opinion, which assistant coach for OU is the most expendable, if any?

Well, expendable is the wrong word. You need them all. But the weak link, I'd say, is Bruce Kittle. He's completely unproven as a coach. Virtually no experience as a college coach, and he gets a full-time staff gig. Seemed awfully good-ol-boyish to me.

Longhorns or Cowboys this weekend?

Texas. I would have picked OSU had Lunt been healthy, but I think the OSU running game will be severely tested to produce without a stretch-pass threat.
