I had a great time chatting on Oklahoma Sports with all of our great viewers during the Oklahoma Sports Blitz Sunday night.

According to the responses I received, you love Landry Jones' mustache, hate Tulsa's new uniforms and think I am the most attractive of all of the staff at Oklahoma Sports (thanks to my wife for logging in)

Interesting question from one viewer:  Which wheapon does OSU most need to get back in order to make a run in the Big 12: CB Perrish Cox, WR Dez Bryant or RB Kendall Hunter?

The emergence of Beau Johnson and Jeremy Smith and consistency of Keith Toston at running back make Hunter the least necessary in my opinion. Cox has really come into his own this season and started to live up to the promise he showed coming out of Waco, Texas. In the Big 12 world of spread offenses, cornerbacks with NFL potential are more coveted than Megan Fox's phone number.

But Bryant is the heart and soul of that club. His ability to stretch the field makes it easier for Hunter, Toston, Johnson or whoever ZacRobinson is handing the ball to. And when Bryant is healthy, Cox is less needed in the return game. He impacts what happens on the field and provides the energy his teammates need.  If Hunter plays at Texas A&M October 10th, it will have been 28 days since his last action...21 days for Bryant and Cox.  Cowboy fans can only hope they never have to find out the answer to our viewer's question.
