Oh hey, Jeff Eisenberg agrees with me. (Yahoo)

Cool stuff from Mark Cooper here on a night in Lawrence. Also, OSU went 33 minutes without a 3 on Tuesday. (Tulsa World)

This is pretty crazy: Now, the question no longer is whether the Sooners are better than Kansas. The question is, are the Sooners better than OSU? Also, OSU won’t need to get to 9-9 to make the Tournament. 8-10 will get it done. (NewsOK)

Here’s a longer article on it with all of Gundy’s quotes. He says winning a Big 12 title is “back on the table.” (ESPN)

And here are even more quotes from Gundy’s Wednesday roundtable. “I had an obligation to the 131 guys on the team. How in the world do I walk into that team meeting and say, ‘Guys, listen, here’s what we need to do to beat Baylor. (A walk-on freshman) is starting. Now get ready.'” (Tulsa World)

Last one here. There’s some GOLD in this one. (Scout)

Here’s a handy list of all the early entrants to the NFL Draft. (CBS)

Other sports

I wrote some about the Rory McIlroy-Rickie Fowler “rivalry” here. It’s not one, really, because Rory is already a legend and Fowler is just a pretty good golfer but I don’t really discredit what Fowler said either. (CBS)

The two dudes climbing El Capitan finished. The photos are amazing. (FTW)
