    Mount Rushmore of OSU Coaches

    I am closest to this. I agree completely with the 3 locks. For the fourth - fair or unfair - I remove John Smith and Eddie Sutton (as much as I love them both) since their sports are already represented (same applies to others like Griffith and Roderick). Then that leaves Ward or Gundy...

    Great story!

    Take your mind of the chaos and check out this Big Country documentary

    I enjoyed this when it first came out a year or so ago, and just recently re-watched it with the whole family. They all enjoyed it. Very highly recommended. The 1x1 scene near the end was fantastic. You can see how much fun they were having.

    What is your coolest or most unusual OSU / Oklahoma A&M item in your collection?

    It is allowed to create a fictional story to go with this set. Something like you, Mr. Iba. AD Myron Roderick, and President John Campbell were sitting in a back booth at the Hideaway and decided to hire Eddie Sutton to coach the basketball team. Something believable like that. ;)

    Leslie O'Neal is a member of the 2020 CFB Hall of Fame class

    I agree, although I guess it depends on where we want to put Fennimore.

    An OP Original A data-based analysis of "Bluebloods" and Oklahoma State's changing place in that story

    Gradually Erasing History After studying the data from this perspective (with rankings from all eras comprehended), I then decided to look at the data while incrementally disregarding older eras. First, I dropped all data from pre-1950 (essentially taking the weighting from 20% to 0%). Then I...

    An OP Original A data-based analysis of "Bluebloods" and Oklahoma State's changing place in that story

    Analyzing the Trend Across the Four Eras It was really interesting to study the trends of the programs over the course of the four eras. I grouped the programs into 5 “buckets” in each era – the elite Top 10 (dark green), the next 13 (light green), the middle 14 (yellow), a lower 13 (orange)...

    Here's the rest of my updated analysis without the pictures. Summary of Results and Observations As expected, my ranking closely mirrored ESPN’s list. In fact the Top 20 of both lists were the same schools except for two – my list included BYU and Washington and did not include Michigan State...

    Well... I will have to do this later... can't upload images directly from my PC anymore. Looks like I need a URL link...

    My Criteria: Championships – This is what really matters, right? Each Natty is worth 10 points. Since there is no clear NCAA champion in CFP, I took the championships “claimed” by each school on the ever-reliable source… Wikipedia. Yes, OSU claims 1945… but we don’t claim the 2011...

    An OP Original A data-based analysis of "Bluebloods" and Oklahoma State's changing place in that story

    A data-based analysis of College Football "Blue Bloods" and Oklahoma State's changing place in that story Updated January 2020 In August of 2018 a “Blue Blood” comment got me curious about what technically makes a Blue Blood. We all inherently know the Blue Blood programs. They are...

    Time for a post-2019 season update to the entire post. This is a good window, as it completes a 20-year window for the current era, matching the 80's-90'. Here comes a series of posts that basically serve to update the original post done in August 2018. After 2 years, there have been some...
