We have to do what is in Florida State's best interest."SB Nation by way of Warchant.com UPDATE: Quality recap on where things stand coming out of the weekend via the Orlando Sentinel

Just wanted to put up a quick programming note. With Matt and Richard traveling back from Panama, there will not be a podcast tonight. I know we've deprived you of our highly entertaining selves now for two weeks, so we promise to make it up to you next Sunday with an extra special super duper brand new edition! (Or more likely just our normal outstanding performance that you've all become accustomed to)
I know I've talked about how much I enjoy listening to KREF 1400 every day, but I can't stress enough how great this station is for OU fans. To help prove my point and avoid cluttering up the front page, I'm consolidating several of the outstanding interviews KREF has done over the last several days here. If you call yourself an OU fan, I'm not sure how you couldn't find this as interesting as I do. So I hope you enjoy!Dusty & Teddy w/ Ryan Broyles Dusty & Teddy w/ Lance Mitchell James & Chris w/ Josh Heupel Dusty & Teddy w/ Derrick Strait Dusty & Teddy w/ Kevin Bookout
Robert Allen, an OSU-centric media personality, says the university should retire the jersey of Page, who ranks first in program history in minutes played and seventh in career points. For what it's worth, Page also is the only player in school history to play on teams that defeated two different schools (Kansas, Missouri) ranked in the top two nationally. Allen, who has reasons other than stats for holding Page in high esteem, isn't the only person on the Page-should-be-honored bandwagon. "Keiton's jersey should be retired and gold-plated," Dave Simms, a Bella Vista, Ark., resident and former Oklahoma high school coach, said in an email to the Tulsa World. "T.

Neinas, in a telephone interview from the Big 12 offices in Dallas, said it's "for West Virginia to comment" specifically on the lawsuits. "But our conference fully expects West Virginia to participate in the Big 12, beginning July 1, 2012," Neinas said. "We've had continual assurances from [WVU] President [Jim] Clements and Athletic Director Oliver Luck [the Mountaineers] will be here to kick off the new year." The Big 12 commissioner said his league hasn't made scheduling plans to move forward for 2012-13 without West Virginia. "No,'' he said. "We have a schedule with West Virginia. We have a contractual commitment with our television partners that we must release a schedule by Feb. 1 and we will do that. "Aside from our television partners, our schools are anxious to release their schedules and we'll meet the required deadline."Interim Big 12 Commish Chuck Neinas
