This list of the highest paid coaches continues to amaze. Travis Ford is stealing money. (CBS Sports)

One thing I love about Smart is that he seems to enjoy the journey: “It feels like I’m still dreaming. This is like a dream come true. I thank God every day for this opportunity. I’m out here living my dream – being able to have the opportunity to live my dream. Reality hasn’t set in quite yet.” (NewsOK)

Basketball recruiting update from Kepple, too. Our 485th 6’6″ 185-lb power forward of the Travis Ford era! (PFB)

Holliday: I’m proud of my team and not just when they win, but all the time and the way they represent Oklahoma State. I don’t want this to be one, I want it to be the first of many. I can remember holding up that trophy in 1996 and I want these guys to enjoy that feeling, but we have two more games in this series.” (Scout)

Changes coming to Bedlam? That’s probably good for the teams even if it’s not for the fans. (NewsOK)
