About a month back, the Oklahoman put together a fluffy little preview of Oklahoma State's new digs, courtesy alum and celebrity benefactor T. Boone Pickens:

By contrast, from 1970 to 2002, OSU spent only about $10 million on athletic facilities.

I was going to do a pie chart, but the slice from 1970-2002 was too small to register in percentage terms.

In completely unrelated news, the Cowboys are openly talking about starting the season 11-0 en route to the best season in school history. It's amazing how these things work out, isn't it?
