Bullets: Which football player is poised to have a monster year?

Roundup of Ford stuff, baseball falls to ORU and Rory’s swing is insane.




Travis Ford saga

Berry Tramel says buying out Travis Ford is irresponsible. I say there’s no buyout too high if you really feel like he’s driving this thing into the ground. (NewsOK)

Mike Holder says Ford isn’t going anywhere (translation: “we couldn’t get the cash”). (PFB)

I agree with this from Jenni Carlson: You simply cannot fire Ford without knowing that you’ve got someone waiting in the wings. (NewsOK)

Boone Pickens backs Travis Ford which is…kinda strange? (PFB)

My thoughts on the entire situation pre-Holder statement. More coming today. (PFB)

Hoops misc.

A Michigan alum stands to win $1 million on Michigan State winning the national title and he doesn’t know if he’s going to hedge it. Wow. (Yahoo)

KD would love to have his jersey retired in OKC. Ditto all Oklahomans. (Daily Thunder)

Steph Curry did things to Chris Paul that are NSFW in most homes. (Deadspin)

Marcus Smart talks about the difficulty of controlling his intensity. (Boston Globe)

Football misc.

Ashton Lampkin’s mom on his ankle injury: “I wanted to die, what do you think? I was frantic.” (NewsOK)

Receiver James Washington is the guy poised for a breakout season. His true freshman numbers were decent (28 receptions, 456 yards, six touchdowns) but I think he can be a star as early as 2015. (ESPN)

OSU is previewing itself for 2015. (okstate)

Is this college football’s next big breakthrough? OSU doesn’t think so, apparently. (Fox SW)

Other sports

Great profile of Donnie Walton and his childhood. (Tulsa World)

OSU lost to ORU in Tulsa last night. Now 19-9. #FireHolliday (okstate)

Rory McIlroy’s swing is filthy. Always has been. (CBS)

Air Cat 1 was in Augusta yesterday. (CBS)

More stuff I’m reading

Have you seen the ESPN redesign? It’s cool, I like it. (ESPN)

I like this idea of a “one-dayer.” (99U)

This looks pretty good.
