Daily Bullets (Feb. 25): Pokes Working to Lock Up Bid, Beat the Cats

Thanks for stopping by – here’s your daily dose of Oklahoma State sports news.



Big weekend for Cowboy Basketball – win and go ahead and get in. Starts by beating the Cats at 1pm today.

Three Thoughts

• As you gaze at OSU’s tournament resume, this is probably the right take: win two out of the next three and you take pressure off of the Big 12 Tournament

Terrific insights from new coordinator Bryan Nardo – loved how he simplifies things

• I geek out over expansion concepts and mostly agree with Berry Tramel’s conclusion here – I think there’s an outside shot the Big 12 expands west without Pac schools.

The optimal quartet for the Big 12 would be Washington, Oregon, Utah and whoever wants to play the Ringo Starr role. 

A viable backup plan would be the Four Corner schools – Arizona State, Utah, Colorado and Arizona. 

There are some who claim the Big 12 might expand West without any Pac-12 schools. I don’t buy those scenarios. Not enough addition to the value of television contracts. 

Two Quotes

• Eddie bobbleheads plus a top-15 team at GIA? Yes please.
