    Not sure if there is already a thread on this or not, but looks like Oklahoma State suspended cornerback Darrant Williams. I am not to familiar with Oklahoma St. does anyone know if this guy is even in their two deep?

    Don't know the answer, but here's an article

    Sorry to not answer the question, but I don't know the answer :( Still I figured I'd post the article for those who didn't catch it on o-state.com. This is not very informative, but its better than nothing.

    Darrent Williams was a pre-season All-American. He's by far Okie State's best DB and propably best defensive player.

    I made a thread about this in the Rumor Mill yesterday.

    I posted this story early this morning in the Game Thread. Funny enough ... none of the big Sports sites (CNN/Si, ESPiN) say word one about it.

    :wink2:

    I stand corrected (took 'em long enough).

    But they juped all over the Troy Smith story. I wonder why.

    He's the best backfield defender we have.

    I'd say this is a huge blow to the OSU defense, but we haven't had him since the SMU game I believe. So really, we've been playing without him all season.

    Hot rumor is... he's getting ready to sign with an agent and focus on NFL drills and wasn't practicing hard, so Miles just cut him loose since his head was obviously not in the right place.

    Unlike your loss of Smith, we've been dealing without Williams all season. Our defense sucks, but this news doesn't really change a whole lot for the Cowboys.

    I really don't think it is a big deal. We haven't had him basicly all year, so not that big of a deal.

    Thanks for the info guys, doesn't sound like too much of a loss afterall.

    I don't see it as a huge loss in that we hadn't planned on him being there.

    I do see it as a huge loss in that the defense needs some holes filled by top talent. If that makes sense.

    When I wrote the defensive preview he was one of the major impact players that I listed for Oklahoma St. I think this really takes away from Ok St's defense. I know that they have delt without him most of the season, but he would have been a spark for Ohio State to deal with.

    I honestly can say that I look at Oklahoma St's defense and really wonder where the talent is, I'm not saying this in an arrogant manner either.

    DW is a playmaker, thats for sure. Anytime he's near the ball, be it on D or on Special Teams, something is going to heppen. Its a lose, but only to a point. He's looking at the pros. He's already been injured once this year and sat out most the season, the last thing he needs right now is another blow to halt his career. It'd be great to have him back, but only if he's playing 100%. I believe Les made the right decision in this matter.
