Here are some thoughts following OSU Fan Appreciation and Media Day Sunday:</P>1.&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160; Brandon Weeden looks and acts the part of a leader and starting quarterback in the Big 12.&#160; And he has the full confidence of his teammates and coaches.</P>2.&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160; Kendall Hunter might roll up 25-hundred yards of offense if he stays healthy.&#160; </P>3.&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160; I hope Orie Lemon is and can stay healthy.&#160; The OSU defense is depending heavily upon him.&#160; Last year Donald Booker did a terrific job filling in and the Cowboys had plenty of other leaders (like Andre Sexton and Patrick Lavine) who could make up the difference.&#160; This year Lemon is the leader.</P>4.&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160; The secondary has to come together.&#160; Markelle Martin and Johnny Thomas are two solid safeties, but beyond that there are questions in the secondary.&#160; Daytawion Lowe&rsquo;s injury and Victor Johnson&rsquo;s issues have made that worse.&#160; </P>5.&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160; The Cowboys relish the underdog role.&#160; At least, to a man, they say they do.&#160; A top 10 ranking and Sports Illustrated cover were nice last season, but those are things of the past.&#160; The players we talked to Sunday said the low expectations that many media members and fans have for them has made them hungry to prove doubters wrong.</P><BR/>
