Shortie today — I’m working on siding my shed this weekend. Will have an update on our podcast tomorrow after we talk KD-Russ for six hours.

Davon Dillard’s Takeover

No. 24 continues to thrive.

It was Dillard who had the arena buzzing as Oklahoma State (15-9, 5-7 Big 12) pulled away to its sixth win in seven games. And it is Dillard who has made a colossal difference in an Oklahoma State team that continues to look nothing like the one that once lost six in a row, including a road game to these same Longhorns (10-15, 4-8).

When asked what is different about OSU now from when Texas last played it on Jan. 4, Longhorns coach Shaka Smart started his response with: “Well, Dillard.” [Tulsa World]

The Dillard resurgence (or just surgence?) tells me a lot about him as well as the future health of the program under Underwood. How exciting will next year be if Jawun comes back (and even if he doesn’t). Some stud freshmen coming in to join Jawun (maybe), Clip, Dillard, Lindy and Co. Whooo boy.

Coaching Turnover In Stillwater

Good stuff here from Robert Allen on Gundy’s coaches.

Gundy likes to see good things happen for his coaching staff and the look on his face told me he has some good ideas on where he is going next for the running back coach. Gundy’s been contacted, like I have, from the group of former players that would love to see Jamaal Fobbs, now the running backs coach at Tulane, get an interview. We’ll see.

The good thing is like the offensive line coach, which was settled on Friday with the hiring of Henson, I will predict by the next Friday you’ll have the second staff vacancy questions solved. The head coach has a pretty good road map in finding new coaches and his map reading skills are pretty sharp. [Go Pokes – $]

They are. This is, somehow, what he’s best at.

 OSU and NCAA Notes

Holy crap, Fab Melo died … Tavarius Shine is out for the year … Kaela Edwards ran the seventh-fastest mile in NCAA history over the weekend … Why is the NCAA doing this?

Are we underrating this shot?

What You Missed On PFB
KD-Russ

I thought the whole thing was a little sad but mostly great. Russ trying to score 100. KD hitting from 35 feet. The jawing. The emotion. This is how it was always going to go once KD left, and having the Warriors as a villain is a great thing for the NBA (and fun for Thunder fans). Also, this is true.
