Three Thoughts

• On the 17th anniversary of OSU’s Elite Eight win over St. Joseph’s, the Tulsa World took a look back. It was great. Now, here’s another.

It’s a little too soon to go down that road without a bit of discomfort — we’re just one week removed from the upset by Oregon State — but I think the Pokes are closer to making these types of memories than they’ve been since Eddie was scowling from the sidelines.

• Dylahn McKinney might be the perfect OSU recruit. He’s a two-sport athlete, he’s underrated and from the state of Texas, and the Cowboys got in on him early. Most importantly, he included OSU in his Top 10.

• Natasha Mack announced her expected departure from OSU. Next stop, the WNBA Draft. Here’s a look at just how important she was to the Cowgirls this season.

Two Quotes

• As I wrote about last week, Spencer Sanders ended the year on a good note, and stiff competition within the QB room should ensure he continues to progress.

Here’s Gundy on his QB’s improvement.

“So as he now learns to understand what to do with the football and take what the defense gives him, it’s just going to give him a chance to become a better player at this level.”

• Mike Boynton on his fourth Cowboy squad.

“I’ll remember this team as the team that raised the bar for me in our program,” Boynton said according to The Oklahoman. “In my mind as we move forward, this is where the rest of the teams I get to coach gotta live up to.”

One Question

• What will the Big 12 look like next season?

Mike Boynton is set to lose his best player to the NBA Draft but he’s still got a ton of returning talent and his Cowboys appear able to continue on their upward trajectory.

And now with Lon Kruger and Shaka Smart leaving the Big 12, and other moves possibly in the works, OSU might boast the most consistency in the league next year in terms of talent and leadership.

Non-OSU Bullets

• My 49ers made a huge trade with the Dolphins ahead of this year’s NFL Draft and there are lots of QB implications.

That’s a lot of numbers to process, I know. Here are a few more: It’s likely that this draft will be the first in history to see quarterbacks selected with the first four picks. [The Ringer]

• Interesting.
