Three Thoughts

Berry Tramel on Mike Holder’s legacy is must-read stuff. He parses the two views well while respectfully championing his legacy above all else.

My two cents – in ten years, the facility upgrades from Karsten to O’Brate will far overshadow the Brad Underwood and chafing with OSU coaching royalty (Gundy and Suttons)

• Can you imagine how difficult it was for Mike Holder to not have his contract renewed?

Holder has been a part of Oklahoma State University for more than 75 percent of his life and transformed OSU athletics – Bill Haisten opines there’s no way he was excited about the transition

Cade Cunningham diagnosed with an ankle sprain – “questionable” for West Virginia today

Two Quotes

• This is why you read a columnist with 30 years on the beat – for the Mo Baker references:

OSU’s freshman phenom suffered a rolled ankle, and it didn’t appear to be serious. But you never know. Nineteen Cowboy seasons ago, the marvelous Mo Baker suffered a sprained ankle, kept playing, but never was the same.


• This is interesting on OSU’s turnovers – where the Pokes lie in the Big 12 (first with 15.9 per game)

The next three teams are Kansas State, Iowa State and TCU, the three squads that are not NCAA Tournament-bound.

Next in line are Texas (13.8), Baylor (12.6), West Virginia (12.6), Kansas (12.6), Texas Tech (10.7) and OU (10.3). That’s a difference of anywhere from two to five possessions per game. Two to five points per game. That’s the difference between winning and losing in the Big 12, and the same could be true in the NCAAs.

One Question

• How many games can Cade miss before it derails the Pokes chances in the tourney?

“There is a wonderful, almost mystical, law of nature that says three of the things we want most—happiness, freedom, and peace of mind—are always attained when we give them to others. Give it away to get it back.”
