Bullets: Bill Self thinks OSU has two Big 12 POY candidates

Travis Ford thinks Allen Fieldhouse is a monster, mean CFB tweets and OSU with another Big 12 wrestler of the week.





For some perspective on the Big 12’s seven teams in the RPI top 31, the combined total of ACC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC teams in that range: 10. (NewsOK)

Whoa, CBS has Oklahoma State as a No. 5 seed this week. That’s way too high. (CBS)

Bill Self doing his usual Bill Self “these guys are so good how do we beat them” thing: “I think Le’Bryan and Phil both, they could be the frontrunners for conference players of the year.” (NewsOK)

Ford: “Allen Fieldhouse is one of the special places in all of college basketball, and the support that Kansas basketball gets is unbelievable.

“It’s a great venue to go play in. It’s not an easy place to go play in, it’s not an easy place to go.” (Scout)

Interesting…Ford on running plays for guys not named “Forte” and “Nash”: “With that said, we’ve worked ever since Christmas, really, of trying to play off those two as well. They’re going to draw a lot of attention.” (Tulsa World)
