Good spring wrap from Brandon Chatmon here. Big 12 defensive coordinators aren’t going to like Tyreek Hill. (ESPN)

Nick Saban says the Big 10 is a really good conference. Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. (CBS Sports)

Daniel Koenig: “JW has become more of a leader. He’s staying in the pocket more, which is good. Maybe a year or two years ago, he’d get nervous back there and start scrambling. But now he’s sitting in there and throwing.” (ESPN)

Brian Fremeau gives OSU the second best chance to win the Big 12 (behind OU): “Mike Gundy’s offenses have thrived in transition before, so it’s less of a concern to find replacement weapons in their attack.” (ESPN Insider)

OSU should have a middle-of-the-road offensive line. I admit, I’m concerned about this sans Wickline. (ESPN)

I’m not totally sure what to think about all of this. You’re telling me Ford and Dickey started hanging out and then out of nowhere Ford was like “I should hire this guy!” and then he did? I don’t know if I buy that. Good to have Dickey back, though. Also, terrifying profile photo there.. (NewsOK)

Jeff Goodman on Smart and draft night: ““Ennis and Smart are so different. Ennis is a pure point guard while Smart is still developing his floor game. It will depend on what that specific team and GM needs. I think its a toss-up right now between the two of them for the top point guard after Exum (he is actually a combo guard). If Smart falls, it won’t be beyond 12.” (ESPN Insider)

Naadir Tharpe, gone. (Sports Illustrated)

Dickey on reaching out to Eddie: “He was excited for me and my family, he knows that’s exciting for me, and obviously his name’s on the court and he’s cast a big shadow on the program with what he accomplished here.” (O’Colly)

Donnie Walton’s barehanded play on Tuesday was impressive. (PFB)

Is Kevin Williams done with football? “I’m not one of those guys that’s afraid to go home. I’m comfortable going home.” (Twin Cities)

OSU had four All-Big 12 guys and the Big 12 player of the year. And didn’t win the Big 12. Heads gonna roll. (Big 12 Sports)

Holliday: “If you’re fortunate enough to advance in the postseason and go on the road we’re going to have to be able to win in venues like Baton Rouge, Starkville, Austin, and we need to create these environments for our players.” Smart. (O’Colly)

This is wild…a guy who basically puts together a newsletter made of links raised $2.5 million in seed money. It’s like the Bullets, but in your inbox. (Re/Code)

Good stuff here. I’m already ready for football?

Also good interview here with Dickey..

And here’s Ford.

And here’s a cool-looking film.
