Bullets: Spring football starts today

OSU’s new helmet, Gus on a great call and baseball downed by Illinois over the weekend.




Hoops misc.

Buddy Hield was named Big 12 POY. Four of the last seven POYs are from Oklahoma schools now (Hield, Smart, Anderson and Griffin). (NewsOK)

Phil Forte and Le’Bryan Nash were All-Big 12. (PFB)

Though Nash wasn’t happy about his spot.

Baylor smoked the Oklahoma State women in the semifinals of the Big 12 tournament. No surprise. (NewsOK)

The Cowboys will benefit from a pillowy-soft bubble and should still get in the tournament with an 8-10 mark in the Big 12, but they could eliminate any nervousness with a win over Oklahoma in Bedlam Part Three on Thursday night in Kansas City. (NewsOK)

OSU is anywhere from an 8-11 seed. The lower the better, probably. (CRFF)

This dunk…wow. Gus on the call. (Deadspin)

Football misc.

Yeah, that’s a new Pistol Pete helmet you see… (PFB)

Good spring ball primer here from Bill Haisten. Lots to wonder about — specifically the offensive line and run game. (Tulsa World)

Fascinating stuff here: Of the 15 fastest-paced offenses in 2014, nine managed to blow double digit leads they held in the 2nd half of the football game. This is a huge hole in tempo offensive strategy preventing it from totally catching on at bigger universities who prefer to impose their will with man-ball.

You need a “closer” in football, too, it seems. (Football Study Hall)

Justin Gilbert is growing up, according to Joe Haden. (Browns)

Illinois downs OSU

More coming on this later today but Illinois beat OSU 2-1 in a weekend series at Allie P. (okstate)

Here are all the photos. Those black jerseys and black and white caps we have are incredible. (okstate)
