The Athletic has OSU as the Big 12’s No. 6 program in the fall – Mike Gundy being underestimated is great (HCS)

Sporting News has Mike Gundy as a top-15 coach in college football – an obvious next step exists for him to get into the top ten:

With Texas and Oklahoma gone, this is a real chance for Oklahoma State to flex in the Big 12 for the next several seasons. A victory in the Big 12 championship game is the next elusive step.

• OSU has a doubleheader against Houston today – here’s an opinion on what’s needed for the Pokes to wrap up a hosting spot: 

If the Cowboys can sweep here and win a game or two next week, I don’t see how they wouldn’t be hosting a regional come postseason time.

Love this NBA great Steve Nash quote about Shai Gilgeous-Alexander:

“I mean, he’s got you in jail,” Nash told me in January. “So what do you do if you’re a defender? You play too tight, he can go by you. You try to stay tight enough and strong enough that you can absorb the stepback—now he can go and draw fouls because you’re overplaying him. He’s got you in a position where however you decide to guard him, he has a counter.” [The Ringer]
