APPLE CUP 2011: Gameday Links

The Apple Cup is finally here. I don't think I need to say much more than that. We all know what this game means, the only thing left in question is after the game will there be a post game GIF/image celebration thread or are we going to have the poop thread sequel?

Feel free to use this as a pregame thread, but we will also be back with more prior to the 4:30 p.m. kickoff including my look at the receiver performance against Utah and how they will fare without Isiah Barton in the Apple Cup. Also, check out the hat Marquess Wilson is wearing in this video, when you rack up more than 1200 yards in 11 games I guess you can wear whatever you want.
