Blackmon, Weeden Staying At Oklahoma State

Mike Gundy has to be a happy mn right about now. News is that wide receiver Justin Blackmon and quarterback Brandon Weeden will be returning to Oklahoma State next season. Blackmon and Weeden made their announcement at a joint news conference.

Blackmon was an All-American this season and would've been one of the higher rated receivers in this yeas NFL draft. Weeden was a bit of a surprise since he's older (he'll be 28 in October) , due to a minor league baseball stint in the New York Yankees, Kansas City Royals, and Los Angeles Dodgers systems. I figured he might try to make a go of it.

Even though the Cowboys play in the always tough Big 12 South, they will be among the favorites to wn the conference.
