Brad Underwood is not afraid of Change

This is tremendous on how Underwood flipped OSU’s season.

The big difference this time around was that the antidote for Oklahoma State’s ailments wasn’t a spread offense or a lineup rearrangement. It was, however, a deviation from what Underwood had had success with in the past.  “You kind of have to get out of your own way,” he says. “It was about helping this team become the best it can be. And that’s my obligation.” [Yahoo]

Music to these ears.

Loss won’t Linger

Underwood doesn’t expect the Wednesday outcome to result in a Cowboy hangover or anything that might resemble the slump of January.

“Boy, I sure hope we’re not that shallow,” he said. “You don’t go to West Virginia and win, and you don’t go to (OU) and beat a Lon Kruger team, without being a good basketball team.

“I can’t say enough how good this league is. My goodness, you better not feel too sorry for yourself. You better strap it up and go. See you Saturday.” [Tulsa World]

Oh yes we will.

Move The College Hoops Season?

May Madness?

The riskier strategy is making it a one-semester sport. Ideally, it could make almost the entire season relevant nationally. It would certainly be true for early-season matchups, where titanic battles between blue-blooded, top-10 teams are commonplace. Far more common than in college football. But for basketball, games like Kentucky-North Carolina and Indiana-Kansas earlier this year barely registered for sports fans at large. [Sports On Earth]

As proprietor of a college sports blog, I’m all in on either of these ideas.
