After a record-breaking, award-winning season, Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon is the preseason Big 12 offensive player of the year. The spotlight is bright. The expectation is high.
But if he's feeling any pressure, Blackmon didn't show it at Big 12 Media Days. He was sitting in Monday's biggest interview session with his shoes kicked off.
Your Jordans are on the floor. Are your feet hurting you?
I normally don't wear shoes. I wear Crocs.
So this is abnormal for you?
This is my dress up. (Smiles.)
It seems like it's going to be hard to top last year. What do you expect out of the offense this year?
We expect basically the same thing as last year. Build off of that and get even better. We plan on getting better.
You had the streak of 100-yard games. How hard was that to keep going week after week?
I didn't even think about the streak. That wasn't even in my mind. I didn't even know there was a streak. It's just going out there having fun. We prepared each week, and we went into every game confident knowing what we were about to do.
