Ford on Embiid: “I mean, goodness, he’s so talented. He’s so good.” Good feature on Embiid here from Gary Parrish. (CBS Sports)

10 thoughts on OSU-Kansas. (PFB)

Ford: “I don’t think it’s a moral victory. But we’re going to walk out of here with our heads held high no matter what.” (Scout)

Good recap here of the game on Saturday and what it means for the Big 12 season. Some great Self quotes. (Sports Illustrated)

We have a new number for Phil Forte shots per day from Bill Self: “From what I understand, and having recruited him a little bit, the kid is just in love with the game. He can’t get enough. He works so hard on his shot. This is one thing I’ve heard from other people about him, he’ll take 1,000 shots a day just to make the one in the game. A lot of people aren’t willing to put in the time for those limited opportunities.” (NewsOK)

Kansas finally looks elite. Meh, they look good, I don’t know that they look elite. (ESPN)

Forte: “At halftime we knew it would take a big effort. We tried to take the game in four-minute intervals. We played as a team in the second half and if we had started like that, it might have been different.” (Big 12 Sports)

“Travis Ford told me he likes big guards.” (CBS Sports)

Here’s the skirmish from the first half. (PFB)

Self thinks the game was chippy because of what Smart said before the season about Wiggins? “Marcus Smart never said anything that was one bit negative. Andrew Wiggins never said anything that was negative. … But the media was able to play on that and because the media played on it, I think both teams were turned up pretty good today.” (Tulsa World)

OSU has now lost 17 of 18 at AFH. (ESPN)

Agree with this, Kansas has the driver’s seat but it’s not over yet. (NewsOK)

Interesting point here from Eric Williams on Marcus’ flopping. (Rivals)

This headline is incredible, almost like an Onion article. Good interview with Holder, though. Also, he’s worried about athletic finances? Huh? (NewsOK)

So Mike Gundy wanted Joe Wickline fired last year. What a circus. (NewsOK)

Devon Thomas on enrolling early: “Hopefully, I can live up the expectations they want me to. I’m going to try my best to be like the rest of them.” (Tulsa World)

On the Y-corner route and why Mason Rudolph could start early for OSU. Good stuff here. (NewsOK)

Nick Saban electric slide. Giggles. (Big Lead)

Brandon Weeden on tarpon fishing. We should create the Cowboy Network, sell it to ESPN, then program him and Rashaun fishing for 12 hours a day. I’d watch. (NewsOK)

Really great look at where recruits come from. Via @landthieves. (Github)

Good Q&A here with Weeden. (NewsOK)
