Big 12 Media Days: OSU Notebook

Notes and quotes from Oklahoma State's meeting with the media on Tuesday.

Oklahoma State brought quarterback Brandon Weeden and if the Colorado game was his coming out party on the field then off the field this was it.

Weeden was a popular interview and with his 26-year-old maturity mixed with his enthusuasm the media was really loving his presence. Weeden kept with his approach that he has a lot to prove and is completely understanding that the Cowboys are picked down in the Big 12 South and that very little is known about him as a quarterback.

Weeden swayed some attention in the media and he will get a fair shake if he produces to start the season.

Lemon Back For Final Season
Orie Lemon was more of a forgotten player than even Kendall Hunter in 2009. With Lemon making the rounds, the Big 12 media all of a sudden remembered what kind of player he was in 2008 before his knee injury prior to the opener with Georgia last season.

Lemon has been one of the instrumental leaders in the Cowboys metobolic practices as well as weight room and conditioning sessions.

Blatnick Expects Nothing Less Than 10 Wins
Jamie Blatnick, the junior defensive end from Celina, Texas, was excited to be in Irving on Tuesday, and he also was excited to see the media guide and his picture. Blatnick saw his classification as a junior and said time his time in Stillwater has flown by.

As you would expect all Oklahoma State players are confident that they will exceed all predictions for this season. Blatnick said he sees no less than 10 wins this season. Players should believe they are going to win them all. No, we didn't hear anybody ask Blatnick which games he thought might not be wins.
