    I’m so sick of everyone touting Scott Drew’s post season record… Is it nice and would we take it as OSU fans? Sure. But why is it that everyone fails to mention that his win over Creighton is his FIRST win over a single digit seed in the tournament? In his previoius two elite eight runs they had extremely easy paths to get there.

    • spokepokes

      That is because they did well enough in the regular season to get those easy wins. It’s not a conspiracy bud. Ford consistently puts us in tough games first round. Not once have we had a gimme….that’s on us.

      • Nate

        Wow… first of all, this is not about us vs. them. Second, it’s easy for stupid people that don’t do their homework to say “HE TOOK THEM TO THE ELITE EIGHT!! TWICE!!”. He beat a 14, 11, and 10 seed both years to get there. Congrats.

        • T-Bone

          Hopefully he beat them pretty good then.

        • spokepokes

          I never said any of that. I said that in his NCAA tourney runs, he was in a position to win easy games due to prior performance. Some of that tourney success of his was NIT….but even there OSU has underperformed.

        • TeaTown Cowboy

          Cause no lower seeds ever upset higher seeds. Who gives a flip, that means they are beating teams they are supposed to beat, but how many do during March Madness? Holla @ Coach K wants to talk with ya.

    • Steven

      When this is the only argument you’ve got, it makes the argument presented the article even more legitimate.

      • Nate

        LOL another idiot

        • Steven

          When you are an anonymous internet troll, everyone is an idiot.

          • Nate

            Hahah oh you’re a Baylor fan. You’re even more pathetic than I thought…

    • TeaTown Cowboy

      Dude, Drew can coach circles around Ford.

  • Brett

    That Nick Young video reminds of that joker Steven Pledger with an all time miss celebration.

    Thought OSU fans would enjoy Fran Fraschilla’s comments on Thayer Evan’s criticism on Scott Drew:

    http://collegesportsblog.dallasnews.com/2014/03/thayer-evans-calls-baylors-scott-drew-a-liability-analyst-fran-fraschilla-responds-saying-evans-wouldnt-know-a-basketball-from-a-pumpkin.html/

    ‘Who wrote it?’ he said in reference to Evans’ article. ‘Thayer Evans? Hm. That’s the guy who stirred up the Oklahoma State stuff in football. I can’t wait to see him. He wouldn’t know a basketball from a pumpkin, honestly. And he’s got no right saying that because he’s got no clue. I doubt he saw any practices. I doubt that he has any idea about what constitutes as to what makes a good coach. I mean that. I’m not trying to be a wise guy here. That’s tragic that he’d write something like that.’

    • Nate

      ^Baylor fan. On an OSU blog. Cool story, bro…

      • Steven

        How dare you expose me.

        • Nate

          Cool.

    • TeaTown Cowboy

      I have a friend, won’t name him, who played b.ball at zerOU who doesn’t think much of Scott Drew’s coaching. I told him I didn’t agree and that Drew has done a fantastic job esp when you consider when he landed the disarray Baylor’s program was in due to the murder of Patrick Dennehy and other things that forced Dave Bliss out. Anyway, thanks for exposing the doofus known as Thayer Evans, we love him, hahahahahhaha.

    The NLRB is not a court, it’s a federal agency (in this case, it’s the Chicago district of that agency). The article you linked to mentions this, saying the next step would be an appeal to the national agency, and from there to federal court.

  • Laith

    That article on Gottlieb is a joke. That writer needs to grow a sack. After reading it though, it makes me want him as our coach even more

  • Aaron

    I’m a huge Liverpool fan, and loved that Stevie G. free kick. I know it’s off-topic but I really think they could take the title if Chelsea and Man City can slip.

  • troy

    I hope we go 0-18 in Big XII play next season. That needs to happen for us to get better.

    • Chris

      There should be a middle finger option next to the up and down vote arrows.

      • troy

        Come at me bruh

    • TeaTown Cowboy

      We? You zerOU homer! :D

  • Mark

    Charlie Strong has some good ideas, which kinda scares me a little bit.

    • Dr. Funkenstein

      It’s going to be a different Texas, that’s for sure.

  • Jake

    If Des Roland is our 5th best player, we are going to have a long season. He was solid last year, but I don’t there’s anything special about him.

    • TeaTown Cowboy

      If he gets a bit quicker and stronger he’ll be a force. Hope he was dedicated in the weight room this past summer!

  • TeaTown Cowboy

    Of course you have Walsh lower, you’re not a big believer. Surprised Rennie Childs wasn’t even listed, he will make a big contribution this season IMO.

  • TeaTown Cowboy

    Ateman needs to put on 20 lbs of muscle. 6-foot-4 & 190 pounds is a bit thin. In college it’s not a huge issue but he could be a force and I’m sure he’ll get to 210 or thereabouts before he’s done.
