Here’s an exchange with Oregon’s basketball beat writer. It’s really insightful into how Oregon operates (they’re terrible defensively). (NewsOK)

Ford: “Every year is different. We’re going to do everything we possibly can (to win). If I could wave a magic wand, we’d be sitting in the Final Four. That’s not the way it works. Now to the normal fan it is.” Haha, we just want to see the first weekend, Travis! (Scout)

Really good Phil Forte column here. Still, an appeal to Saint Anthony — the patron saint of lost things — might not hurt, with Oklahoma State heading toward Friday’s game against Oregon in the NCAA Tournament. (NewsOK)

Le’Bryan Nash: “You’ve got to have better leadership,” Nash said. “That would mean me and Cobb and Phil.” (NewsOK)

In researching that post, by the way, I happened upon the 20 preseason predictions I made in the preseason, by the way, here they are. Kind of fun to look back on. (PFB)

Forte is the Cowboys’ beating heart: Were there a stat that tracked how much ground a player covers in a given game, Forte would basically be Michael Bradley. (Grantland)

SAE fallout

But I am here to say that the football team’s new act as OU’s campus consciousness falls short of legitimate. Where were the protests when violence struck their fellow female students, some at the hands of teammates? (NewsOK)

Baseball things

OSU won again last night. Six in a row for the Pokes. (okstate)

Oklahoma State’s Josh Holliday became the second-fastest OSU skipper to reach 100 wins. He is now one of six coaches in Cowboy history to reach the century mark in victories. (Big 12 Sports)

March has been so much better than February for OSU (in baseball, not basketball). (PFB)
