OSU limiting Lunt's transfer destinations A list of Wes Lunt's five possible future destinations surfaced earlier this week, but Oklahoma State is limiting more than half of them.
From colleague Joe Schad:
Former Oklahoma State quarterback Wes Lunt's release will not allow him to transfer to Southern Miss, Tennessee or Vanderbilt, according to several people briefed on the decision.
Lunt had been considering transferring to all three schools, a person familiar with his plans told ESPN this week.

Mailbag: Top 10 players, Stoops, Lunt Thanks for all the e-mails this week. Good to hear from you. Here's where you can reach me if you've got more to say.
Mike in Overland Park, Kan. writes: Hey Dave, regarding your "10 best Big 12 players ever" list -- I guess I should have known it would basically be a TX/OU All-Star team. How about a list of 10 best players NOT on TX/OU?
David Ubben: Well, yeah, Mike. I don't know what you expected. Such is life in the Big 12, which Texas and Oklahoma have dominated for most of its history.

Big stage vs. Longhorns: ISU's most important I wasn't sure what to expect from the Iowa State faithful when I asked what their most important game in 2012 was, but I wasn't surprised to see a rivalry game against an average at best Iowa team earn 32 percent of the vote.
The biggest earner, however, was Iowa State's Thursday night game against Texas, which received 36 percent of the vote.
The Cyclones' home game against Oklahoma State was in third with 17 percent of the vote, but I was surprised Tulsa (nine percent) and Kansas (six percent) didn't earn a bit more of the vote.
