OSU football notebook: Mizzou receivers present challenging matchup

Cowboys linebacker Shaun Lewis said Tigers' receivers are “like tight ends across the board, except they run like receivers. That's a challenge in itself.”

Seems Chelf is a bit of a movie buff. And he again thought about dressing up to attend “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.”

“We thought about it,” Chelf said. “We thought about going and grabbing some suits from the thrift store.”

So, who would Chelf have been?

“Probably Brian Fantana,” he said of the Paul Rudd character, “because he has long hair, too. “Caleb is growing out his mustache, so he could be Ron Burgundy. At some point in time during the movie, I thought I was listening to Caleb talk. He sounds just like Ron Burgundy at times.”

Maybe Chelf, a grad student at OSU, is on to a new career as a movie reviewer.

“That might be a good idea,” he said. “We see enough movies. I see a movie about every week. So that could be a good idea, I guess. That would be fun.”

His take on Anchorman 2:

“The first one is tough to beat,” he said. “This one is very funny, though. I will say that it surprised me. It's good.”


The Big 12 has undergone a change of face in recent seasons, with defections and additions and a current makeup that features 10 teams.

Still, some Cowboys seniors have played conference games against 12 different schools.

Like Lewis, who has played against the nine current OSU opponents in the Big 12, plus Missouri and Texas A&M in 2011, and Nebraska in 2010.

Safety Daytawion Lowe redshirted in 2010, his second year at OSU. He played as a true freshman in 2009, which means Lowe played against Colorado, but not Nebraska.

“It is crazy,” Lowe said. “I always like to play new teams. It's really just a fun experience, to get to be able to see the approaches from different teams. To get to go on the road, go different places.”
