Availability: NowCarriers: AT&TOperating System: Android 4.0 Ice Cream SandwichSize: 4.7 inchesThe One X was the first powerhouse smartphone to hit the market this year, and it has become a favorite of many consumers with its slender, curved polycarbonate body and intuitive Sense 4 skin on top of Android. The One X holds its weight against other smartphones released or announced since it came out in May, but the 1800mAh battery does leave a touch to be desired. Top Features: Sense 4 (which makes Android easier to use), 8MP back camera, 1.3MP front camera, Beats Audio, NFC, 4G LTE, 1.5GHz processor.Put a One X next to a Galaxy S III and play with each for a couple hours. They are the same size and have nearly the same hardware specs (except for the S III’s slightly better battery capacity). However the One X’s user interface is better-looking and easier to understand than the very busy TouchWiz on Samsung’s top device. Droid Razr M Availability: Sept. 13, 2012Carrier: VerizonOperating System: Android 4.0 Ice Cream SandwichSize: 4.3 inchesAnnounced last week along with the Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD, the Droid Razr M is a mid-level Android phone that will retail for $99 with a $50 mail-in rebate. The price and availability are what make it attractive, along with the near edge-to-edge screen that fits into a very compact body. But the term mid-level is a little deceptive for the Razr M, which packs a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 2000mAh battery into roughly the same size and shape rumored for the iPhone 5.Top Features: Compact body but still with a 4.3-inch screen, nearly un-customized Android operating system (no skin like Sense 4 or TouchWiz), 8MP back camera, Chrome for Android Web browser, NFC, 4G LTE. “Smart actions” are a hidden feature of Motorola’s newest devices. They learn where a user is and change the hardware’s behavior accordingly. This smartphone may be destined to be an underrated challenger in the mobile device wars, but the price, body, screen and aspects of the hardware should be attractive to many buyers, including those looking for older iPhones such as the 4S and 4.

The iPhone launched the smartphone revolution, but five years after its debut, Apple’s signature product is just one of many great options. Below we present the top five alternatives to the iPhone 5.Samsung Galaxy S III Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Availability: Q4 2012 likelyCarriers: AT&T and Verizon at least but likely T-Mobile and Sprint as wellOperating System: Android 4.1 Jelly BeanSize: 5.55 inchesThe global version of the Note II has been announced but details on the U.S. variant are not yet available. This is the second iteration of the Note series. It’s so large, it could almost be considered a small tablet; people have taken to calling it a phablet. The original Galaxy Note shipped 10 million units worldwide and sports a stylus, the S Pen, as its primary user interface.Top Features: 4G LTE, 8MP back camera, 1.9MP front camera, 3100mAh battery. (These specs describe the global version. The global Note II will have a quad-core processor, but as of yet quad-core smartphones have made it to the U.S. market.)The Note II will include all the custom Samsung apps in the Galaxy S III plus unique apps and new features for the S Pen. Nokia Lumia 920 Availability: NowCarriers: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, U.S. CellularOperating System: Android 4.0 Ice Cream SandwichSize: 4.7 inchesThe Galaxy S III is the top selling smartphone in the U.S. this year, ahead of the iPhone 4S. That is likely to change as consumers gobble up the iPhone 5 during the holiday season, but the S III is a good competitor to any and all comers. Top Features: 4G LTE (where available), Android operating system that will be upgraded to 4.1 Jelly Bean later this year, 8MP back camera, 1.9MP front camera, NFC, 2100mAh battery, 1.5GHz dual-core processor. Samsung bundles a variety of its own apps including a Siri competitor called S Voice along with S Note, AllShare and specialty camera apps. Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Availability: Q4 2012Carriers: Likely AT&T and VerizonOperating System: Windows Phone 8Size: 4.5 inchesAnnounced last week, the Lumia 920 is the flagship Windows Phone 8 device for both Nokia and Microsoft. It’s a substantial upgrade over the Lumia 900 that was released in April, as it allows Nokia to build in proprietary hardware and software features that were missing in the Lumia 900. These include advanced camera technology, maps and navigation, and screen features. Windows Phone 8 is a decent jump from Windows Phone 7.5 with a user interface made up of smarter, resizable “hubs and tiles.” Top Features: 8.7MP back camera with Carl Zeiss optics, 1.3MP front camera, 1.5GHz processor, 2000mAh battery, 4G LTE, NFC. Nokia wants users to buy the Lumia 920 for its extra features, such as navigation capabilities and advanced optical image stabilization technology that rivals that of the iPhone 4S. Nokia put its camera and navigation together for an interesting built-in augmented reality app. The Lumia 920 will be successful if users can bring themselves to give up their iPhones and Androids for the fundamentally different user interface that is Windows Phone.

While the Jayhawks basketball team continues to win the Big 12 year, after year, after year, the Kansas football team is off to another disappointing start. David Beaty’s Jayhaws sit at 1-5 (0-3 in the Big 12) as the Cowboys come to town to play a Kansas team that has only won once in 2016, a 55-6 win over Rhode Island.Beaty is off to a 1-17 start at one of the hardest jobs in college football, and has yet to win a Big 12 conference game. Kansas did play TCU very well two weeks ago, eventually falling 24-23, but followed that up with a 49-7 blistering at the hands of the Baylor Bears last week.Oklahoma State will come into the game well rested off their bye week, and will look to get the second half of the season started right against the worst team in the Big 12. However, the last two trips to Lawrence have been anything but cakewalks.In 2012, the Cowboys barely hung on in a rain-soaked monsoon, 20-14, against the Charlie Weis-lead Jayhawks. Then in 2014, the Cowboys’ last trip to Lawrence, they survived in a 27-20 win. Overall, the Cowboys lead the all-time series with Kansas 35-29-2. Let’s take a look at a few numbers to know for Kansas-Close Calls Aside, Mike Gundy Owns KansasThe Cowboys have won seven in a row against the Jayhawks and 12 out of 13 overall. The only time Mike Gundy has lost to the Jayhawks came in 2007 the year that Kansas beat Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl. The Cowboys are a 24-point favorite this year, and if they remember to set their alarms for that 11 AM kickoff, should walk to a fairly straight forward victory.Justice Hill Has Another Opportunity For A Big DayKansas has struggled to stop the run in 2016, allowing 197.2 yards per game on the ground, good for 95th in the NCAA. Justice Hill’s mini-streak of 100-yard games came to an end against Iowa State, but still picked up 57 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown.The Cowboys need to establish the ground game early against Kansas, and Justice Hill should be in line to rebound in a big way this Saturday.Can the Cowboys get back in the polls?Oklahoma State received 51 votes in the AP poll last week, and look to be close to re-entering the top 25. A win over Kansas would make the Cowboys an incredible 50-6 against their last 56 unranked opponents.It’s a sign of how consistent the Cowboys have been under Mike Gundy, and proves the point- if the talent level is similar or in Mike Gundy’s favor, he’s a good bet to win.

It’s election day which means we are definitely not going to talk about who we’re voting for. What we’re going to do instead is talk about our nominations if you could only vote for former Oklahoma State players, coaches, administrators and boosters in this election (what a world that would be).Here are our nominees (president/vice president).Justin Southwell: Mike Gundy/Todd MonkenThis duo wins. I would’ve liked to have seen Monken stay longer and develop his recruits in that style of offense.I added some cabinet members for fun.Attorney General: JW WalshSpeaker of the House: Larry ReeceSecretary of State: John W. SmithSecretary of Treasury: Brandon WeedenSecretary of Defense: Brad UnderwoodSecretary of Health: Rob GlassSecretary of Energy: T. Boone PickensSecretary of Education: Russell OkungCaleb Deck: Mike Gundy/Mike HolderShoutout to cousin-in-law Ryan Nash for brainstorm with me!Talk about a leader and the peoples’ president with Mike Gundy. Winner, represents the program and school well, great catchphrases, and tough (see “I’m a man!” rant).Mike Holder fits the VP spot well. He can negotiate the back door deals necessary to keep things going. I may not always agree with him or like his personality but he gets the job done and is as loyal as anyone.Here are some bonus cabinet positions.Secretary of State: Burns HargisSecretary of Interior: Joe Bob ClementsSecretary of Defense: Tony AllenAttorney General: Thayer Evans TBDSecretary of Treasury: T. Boone PickensSecretary of Agriculture: Big CountrySecretary of Labor: Brad UnderwoodPress Secretary: Doug GottliebSecretary of Health and Human Development: Rob GlassKyle Boone: Mike Gundy/Boone PickensI like Gundy as my president because he has earned the utmost respect within the community; he was raised in a good family, never says a word, and occasionally cracks jokes that appeal to the younger demographic like myself.His mullet is hard proof that he’s willing to take a joke way too far to embarrass his children, and that’s a quality I can most certainly respect.The most successful era of Oklahoma State football wouldn’t be possible without the contributions of mega-booster and oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens.If something were to happen to Gundy that he would not be able to continue his duties as president, T. Boone would get his chance to run the organization, which I’m not so sure he secretly wants a crack at from time to time anyway. Good luck with OU!Commit to four more years! #GoPokes #okstate #Election2016 pic.twitter.com/Fr2TZQSRLH— Cowboy FB Recruiting (@CowboyFB_Elite) November 8, 2016Kyle Porter: Les Miles/Mike GundyGet the band back together!

Can you imagine the joint press conferences?Reporter: Why are your jobs numbers in a freefall?Gundy: That’s in-ack-u-rut.Reporter: I have the data right here.Gundy: That ain’t true!Meanwhile President Les balancing the budget would be spectacular. Now if we can somehow make it look like time is going to run out and the government is going to shut down while we still have a monstrous deficit, that’s when I do my best work. [entire cabinet resigns]Plus, we know how he feels about national holidays. We would finally get Fantasy Football Draft Day, MLB Opening Day and the first weekend of CFB as national holidays.The television interviews would be even better. An insanely hoarse Les: One of these countries is a great country and the other is the best country in the world! [Gundy stares deeply into camera like Jim from The Office while wondering if tucked-in hoodies are allowed at the State of the Union].My gosh, I want this. Also, this could hang in the Oval Office.There is only one choice for president and vice president tomorrow. Make America tuck its shirts and jackets in again. pic.twitter.com/30MWM5HFb2— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 7, 2016Kyle Cox: Barry Sanders/Thurman ThomasProbably the best running back duo in college football history. Sanders may be the greatest running back ever but Thomas is the Cowboys’ all-time leading rusher.Both were inducted into both the College and Pro Football Hall of Fames. The choice is simple. You can’t find a pair more deserving. Plus they just sound like a presidential duo. Sanders. Thomas. Sanders/Thomas.Make your voice heard and cast your vote for Sanders/Thomas.Let us know who you would vote for below.

It is Rudolph’s second Offensive Player of the Week award in the last two years and the second for Oklahoma State as a team.

Oklahoma State’s 2017 recruiting class is in the books with national signing day in the books. Twenty-one members, five of which are early enrollees, are now officially Cowboys. To go full coach cliché: they filled needs at key positions, all of them come from good mommies and daddies, and it’s an exciting time for Oklahoma State football.With the class all but finished (except one more spot yet to be filled), where did the class finish in the recruiting rankings? Here’s a look at the Big 12 standings:After being ranked second in the Big 12 with less than a month before signing day, Texas and TCU had a late surge on the recruiting trail to overtake the Cowboys, and Baylor’s Matt Rhule went from one commitment to 27 in just a two-month span.As you can see, OSU had 21 total signees — but the rankings give more weight to schools with higher-rated prospects (obviously). Texas signed just 18 prospects, however seven of those were considered 4-star recruits. And TCU signed the same number of players as OSU, but they signed four 4-star prospects (and three 2-stars! What are you doing, Gary Patterson?!)OSU slipped to 38th overall in in the national standings. Here is how OSU has finished since 2011 in the Big 12 arms race:2011: 4th2012: 6th2013: 4th2014: 4th2015: 6th2016: 6th2017: 4thAnd nationally? It’s basically more of the same.2011: 25th2012: 33rd2013: 30th2014: 28th2015: 39th2016: 44th2017: 38thOklahoma State’s recruiting for its next class generally picks up in the spring ahead of signing day (11 months or so in advance). But the good news is that OSU has the foundation for a solid 2018 class. Four-star quarterback Spencer Sanders is in the fold, as is inside linebacker Blake Barron. That’s two more commitment than OSU had at this time last year.Having a commitment at the quarterback position set is key in building out the class. So with that already set, look for OSU to try and gather some recruiting momentum over the spring as they prepare for what could be one if its best recruiting classes if they can continue the early momentum.
