    MBB: Oklahoma State Cowboys @ Iowa State Cyclones (ESPN+ TONIGHT 7PM)

    It would be possible for a new coach to retain Cannen and thus Cade. But it would be a gamble, you most likely lose him.

    Soooo, This Baseball Scandal....

    By definition it means I think it is insufficient. You are free to disagree. But let me ask you this. Do you think this punishment will deter teams and players from doing this in the future? All this punishment says is managers can't be involved. But the video guys and the players are...

    Soooo, This Baseball Scandal....

    The standard for cheating isn't whether or not the cheating helped. That has nothing to do with it. You either broke the rules or you didn't. Anything else is hogwash. I'm not a rules expert, but from what I have read they definitely broke the rules. Of course sign stealing is part of the...

    New Ag Hall being Announced?

    I think that forum is for non-OSU sports, not non-sports OSU stuff. We don't really have a forum for non-sports OSU discussions, those usually land in here.

    2021 RBs offers by OSU

    Might be long shots, but if Chuba comes back and makes some noise it could help.

    Another conference realignment thead.

    I'm curious, what was the Longhorn consensus? The cause is complex, for sure, and the reasons probably vary school to school. Colorado left mostly for cultural and perhaps recruiting reasons, feeling (rightly) that they fit in better in the Pac. Nebraska had academic reasons to join the BIG...

    Our spending is 29th, but recent classes ranked 34th and 38th. So under-performing a bit at least as far as rankings go. But over-performing in terms of wins (based more on earlier classes than these, but results were similar.) And it's also interesting to look at the specific schools who...

    Very informative. Here is a summary: I'd say box #2 is pretty well checked and #3 seems to be checked (though I'm sure every program boasts about their culture). But we need to find a way to address #1. Flights, hotels, time, meals, events. Those things just cost money, there's no way...

    Agreed. I would say things really started to shift in the late '90s to early 2000s. The internet allowed any kid from anywhere to put his highlights online for every coach to see. And TV coverage became more national, so kids from California can now watch Alabama every week, rather than only...

    Texas Bowl vs aTm

    Why not? We've done stranger things in bowl games. <iframe src="https://giphy.com/embed/11dga14n5TU0G4" width="480" height="250" frameBorder="0" class="giphy-embed" allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href=" https://giphy.com/gifs/college-football-oklahoma-state-okstate-11dga14n5TU0G4 ">via...

    Texas Bowl vs aTm

    Even if Sanders plays, I hope Gundy looks for an opportunity to get Dru on the field.

    Oklahoma State vs. Houston 2pm - ESPN

    Yep. I was working and only half watching, but every time I looked up Dizzy was getting burned. Why was he on that kid? Was he not the guy we expected to be their go-to? Or did we end up in that situation due to switches?

    Oklahoma State vs. Houston 2pm - ESPN

    Do we really want Yor taking these instead of Lindy? Why not pass it back to him and keep the clock running?

    Nice, board, Anei layin, board (foul) seals it.

    Oklahoma State vs. Houston 2pm - ESPN

    McGriff would be such a force if he would just go straight to the goal when he gets the ball inside. He made that one on the delay after the help arrived, but that is the third time this second half when he had an easy dunk/layup if he just goes straight up without dribbling/hesitating.

    Oklahoma State vs. Houston 2pm - ESPN

    Yep, officiating is pretty one-sided. I couldn't believe they missed the obvious out-of-bounds on the attempted offensive rebound earlier. Resulted in a 3-pt bucket for Houston, of course. But, we aren't attacking the basket or making them pay for over-reaching. And of course not making...

    Howdy former conferencemates!

    ... but with even less balance than the old Big XII. If we were to expand and have divisions, there is no reason to stick with the old north/south, or any kind of regional/direction grouping for that matter.

    Howdy former conferencemates!

    Actually, we do bag on Nebraska quite a bit. They were a true national power and have fallen farther than you. We've certainly discussed their situation more than aTm. We care that A&M left because it clearly hurt the conference. You are a program that still has a smidge of national...

    Bizzaro World OSU season stats

    Probably. The offense and defense are not completely independent. But does anyone have stats for avg number of possessions by both our offense and defense? A slower offense will generally give the defense more rest, but that may evaporate if the offense is unable to sustain drives.
