Breaking new ground in cancer treatment

Cool story here about how an OSU family honored Mote Maile and his dad recently with a donation to the new Stillwater Cancer Center.

Most of the time, they do it quietly. No fanfare. No announcements. No mention of their names, even. But earlier this year when the LaMonicas decided to donate to the Stillwater Cancer Center renovations, they saw an opportunity to not only bring awareness to testicular cancer but also encourage others who might be going through a tough time with cancer.

Is Dede News?

Can’t believe Berry felt like he had to write this, but this is the society we live in.

To whom much is given, much is expected. Personally, I would want to know if my touchdown makers have a history of hitting women. Others apparently feel different. But that doesn’t change a news organization’s responsibility to report what it knows. [NewsOK]

Also, easy on taking shots at bloggers, Berry!

There are self-publishers out there. They are on the internet and on social media, and nobody much pays attention to them. They may or may not have an agenda. I don’t know.

Three consensus Big 12 All-Americans

I bet you can’t guess the three.

Oklahoma wide receiver Dede Westbrook and Texas running back D’Onta Foreman and offensive lineman Connor Williams have been named 2016 Consensus All-Americans. Westbrook was also among the 14 players named a unanimous first team honoree. To be selected, a player has to be named first team on at least two of the following five All-American teams: The American Football Coaches Association, Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, The Sporting News and Walter Camp Foundation. Second and third teams were used to break ties. [Big 12]

So ol’Charlie Strong couldn’t make a bowl game with two All-Americans? Bake that cake, baby.

CMU coach speaks

Good job here by Guerin Emig to get John Bonamego to talk about the CMU-OSU game.

“I didn’t take any offense to anything anybody said. Not one thing, including the people who called us names,” Bonamego said. “Shoot, it’s great we live in a country where people are able to express themselves that way. There are people in Oklahoma who are red-blooded Americans and passionate about their teams. [Tulsa World]

Great quotes from Bonamego. And he’s right. No coach in the country would give up that W.

Huggy Bear crushing

Bob Huggins is showing Brad Underwood how this is really done.

Such are the concerns of every coach who has prepared for college basketball’s most intimidating defense so far this season. Twelfth-ranked West Virginia has reeled off eight wins in its first nine games by unleashing a ball-hawking full-court press that’s more plunderous yet more disciplined than previous incarnations.

In its first nine games this season, West Virginia has harassed opponents into turnovers on a national-best 34.7 percent of their possessions. Not only is that better than the Mountaineers’ rate at this time the past two seasons, it’s also easily the highest rate in the 16 years that cover Ken Pomeroy’s database. [Yahoo]

How big is that December 30 game?
