• Seth Duckworth reported on a very surprising yet high profile set of hall of fame snubs earlier this week.

There’s another hall of fame discussion that receives little attention and may be similarly deserving of the criticism the hoop hall receives for its snub of Sutton.

Neither John Smith or Ed Gallagher are in the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. In fact, there’s not one wrestler in the Oklahoma Hall of Fame.

Athletes like Kevin Durant, Wayman Tisdale, and Russell Westbrook, coaches Barry Switzer, Henry Iba, and Darrell Royal, gymnasts Bart Conner and Shannon Miller, and many others have made the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. Even David Boren (cringe) is a member. [PFB]

How. In. The. World. I’m all for getting Eddie into Springfield but I’m not sure how there are zero wrestlers.

• The University of Arkansas announced a pretty cool honor for Eddie yesterday.

The University of Arkansas Board of Trustees approved naming the men’s basketball team’s practice gym after former coach Eddie Sutton at their May meeting Thursday in Little Rock.

The gym, located inside the Razorbacks’ Basketball Performance Center, will be known as the Eddie Sutton Men’s Basketball Practice Gym.

The Basketball Performance Center is located across the street from Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville and houses locker rooms, training areas, separate practice gyms and coaches’ offices for the men’s and women’s basketball teams. [Whole Hog Sports]

It’s not as impressive as naming your court after him… but it’s a great gesture. I can’t believe he was in Arkansas for 11 years!

• When Cowgirl Samantha Show shut down the Seminoles last night, you could see why Kenny Gajewski brought in her in this year.

“We needed somebody that could walk out front and say, ‘We’re about to go to war, and you’ve got to get through me first,’” Cowgirl coach Kenny Gajewski said. “We just needed some toughness here.”

When he heard (Show) was transferring from Texas A&M last summer, he was immediately interested. He needed an arm; she is a great one. He wanted a pitcher who could hit; she definitely can. And he loved her fiery demeanor. [NewsOK]

What a fascinating comment – a fiery leader that’s the face of the team drawing the ire of opponents. I’d be fascinated to think about who that has been for Cowboy Football over the years.

•  Easily one of the better photobombs I’ve seen:

• How the Big 12 is impacting NFL defenses caught me by surprise

• This is how all productive conversations start – but an ESPN personality asked what team you would want to be kicked out of your conference and the replies were incredibly unified… Baylor.


Non-OSU Bullets

• Interesting angle – smartphones are toys first, tools second

• Ways to break up the horror of the “same old thing”

• Food for thought in “why bad things happen to good decisions”

I can’t stop watching this – NBA fans will get a kick out of this guy imitating Steph Curry.
