Good piece outlining how the defense shut down the Marquette offense Tuesday night – PFB says it was the zone defense

• Kasey Dunn had two keys for Dezmon Jackson’s success last Saturday:

“I told him he could hit the ‘B’ button 15 times after you get four yards,” Dunn said, referencing the button for a spin move on a video game controller. “But until you get four, you’re gonna smack it downhill, and he did.

“Our offensive line blocked, and that made calling the run plays a heck of a lot easier.”


As nice as the blocking was on Saturday – the Red Raiders are hardly the 85′ Bears on defense this year. TCU’s defense is a few slots better at stopping the run.

Jerry Jones isn’t thrilled about facing Dez Bryant this weekend, here he’s quoted on the matchup:

“I couldn’t be happier to see him on the field. Now, I’m going to be a little worried because I do know how that rascal can get up there and get a ball.”

• Seeing national pundits pump up Cowboy Basketball is fun:

Oklahoma State was much more than Cade Cunningham and Isaac Likekele tonight. Cowboys showed bona-fide depth in tonight's win at Marquette. Impressive.

• A frustrating aspect of the College Football Playoff debate – it’s just a matter of what the Committee wants to say:

Irony watch: anyone remember when Big 12 was penalized in 2014 for having one less “data point”. Now we’re having the same debate over a team with four less data points. Yeah, yeah COVID … Still.
