He's right! The dynamic duo's return will be great, but it also makes a statement about the football program and Oklahoma State University as a whole.
Those two players basically said in front of all those cameras and microphones that playing football for the Cowboys and going to school at Oklahoma State is enjoyable. It's so enjoyable they will put off collecting a huge check or checks to do it one more time.
They both said playing in front of the fans in orange was important. Weeden said running out of the tunnel at Boone Pickens Stadium is "a great feeling."
For that reason, be proud Cowboy fans. You are part of this decision. You have made Blackmon and Weeden, and guys like Russell Okung and Brandon Pettigrew before them, think twice before leaving for the NFL and staying to enjoy being a part of this University and the experience at Boone Pickens Stadium.
The 11 wins this past season made it the best OSU football campaign in history but Wednesday's announcement makes it official, Cowboy football is in the best state it has ever been in.
