Agree with these Big 12 power rankings from Berry. (NewsOK)

Marcus Smart, Big 12 player of the week. (Big 12 Sports)

Chad Ford loves Marcus Smart. (ESPN Insider)

Shane Ryan might love Marcus Smart more than me: You often hear the cliché “He can do everything!” spouted about athletes, but in Smart’s case it’s actually true. He can literally do everything. And on top of it all, he’s competitive as hell and plays his best basketball under pressure. (Grantland)

It really isn’t a stretch to call Saturday’s W the biggest road win in school history. (Tulsa World)

The Big Lead (kind of) makes Final Four picks: Butler, Louisville, Indiana……and Oklahoma State. (The Big Lead)

Ford on Smart’s backflip: Probably prefer (he not do it). (NewsOK)

I enjoyed writing this on Marcus Smart. (PFB)

Cowboys are back in both polls. (Tulsa World)

Jerry Palm has us as a six-seed against….gulp…Kentucky. (CBS Sports)


Joe Randle as the Big 12’s 16th best player. I’d probably have him higher (but I’m biased). (ESPN)

OSU recruit Rennie Childs: After watching Trent Richardson, I was like, ‘Dude, that’s how I want to run.‘ (NewsOK)

Football recruit might make late switch to Mississippi St. OMG. (NewsOK)

Ubben says Calvin Barnett is a top five defensive lineman in the Big 12. (ESPN)


We housed A&M in equestrian over the weekend! (O’Colly)

On Liz Donohoe’s free throw shooting routine. (NewsOK)

Must-read if you’re a Seth Godin fan like I am. (Entrepreneur)

Is that a lot?

Eamonn Brennan and Chad Ford on the best PG prospects.

  • Victor

    Lol the picture of “Marcus Smart” on the Chad Ford/Bilas piece is of Lebryan.

  • Walter Sobchak

    Should be Top 5 defensive lineman for Barnett!

  • I concur with no backflips. I don’t remember who it was around 06 that jumped to block an after the buzzer heave by the visiting team and came down wrong on his ankle. I’m not a fan of celebration injuries.

  • Nate

    I think Calvin Barnett would set the record for heaviest linebacker ever.

  • KS1010

    Do you think Berry’s power rankings will change after that OU/Iowa St. game last night? Haha I know I’m a homer, but I love seeing OU lose

  • KS1010

    And Nate, btw I live in Tulsa and bought 4 tickets to the OSU/Baylor game tomorrow night to take my family for my first game of the season. I figured that would make you happy that you are finally making people feel guilty enough to go to the games haha.

    • Nate

      Haha that’s good stuff. Glad you’re going to be there. Hopefully there will be a lot of others like you that show up. Really looking forward to it.

  • Scott

    check out Eric Bailey’s “power rankings” in the Tulsa World. He has Iowa State at #7 (below Texas). OU at #4. http://www.tulsaworld.com/sportsextra/article.aspx?subjectid=234&articleid=20130205_29_B4_hFront253918&allcom=1#3324957

  • Jeff

    I don’t like how Shane Ryan calls us OKSU. It just looks weird to me

  • dooley

    What’s the deal with our football recruiting? Did Ross decide, or do we hear about that tomorrow on signing day. I’m starting to hate miss st.
