Happy NBA Draft Day – where OSU will have a No. 1 pick in basketball (99.9% sure). Here’s a look at Cowboy Basketball draft history.

Cunningham would be the highest NBA draft pick in OSU history and would join Bob Fenimore, who was the No. 1 pick in the 1947 NFL Draft, as the only two Cowboys to become a No.1 pick in any sport.

ESPN was accused of nefarious dealings against the Big 12 – incentivizing other leagues to pick it apart

• Depending on where OSU lines up, a divorce from OU does give OSU a better runway to the Playoff… unless you consider removing their best shot at a win the committee will value

• This is hilarious given the instability from a conference-level but ESPN had OSU as the third-most stable football program in the country.

Mike Gundy took over in Stillwater in 2005 and has led the Cowboys to unprecedented levels of sustained success. He brings both coordinators back, and while they do have some key pieces to replace on offense, they’ve lost only eight players to the portal over the past year, which is tied for 25th-fewest. The culture and roster are in solid shape, even if it’s been a few years since they threatened for a conference title.

Nothing in the Big 12 could be considered genuinely stable these days, but for the 2021 season, OSU is as close as it gets.


When you think about general coaching turnover and roster turnover, OSU is darn near a national leader in football stability.

Spencer Sanders made a move on his NIL rights yesterday – appears to have grabbed some help from a marketing group:

• I don’t know if it was just the way Ogbah played that game but that silver/white/orange combo was awesome:

• I hope OSU leadership is considering this ranking of best ice cream in the country with realignment
Cool literature map to find new authors
• I’ll never be able to go through light flooding without thinking about these Teslas trucking through

This seems like a solid take:

Get really good at one thing.
