Easy to criticize Stoops

Berry Tramel says he’s not going to roast Stoops for his decision.

I say now what I said then. I’m not going to criticize their decision. It’s not an easy decision. Even the most high-pressured, high-paid, high-profile football coaches have some Father Flanagan in them. They believe they can be instrumental in turning around the life of a wayward young man. I respect that. They also know a talent like Joe Mixon doesn’t come along very often. [NewsOK]

I’ve had some incredibly mixed feelings about all of this over the last few days. I’ll probably write about it on Monday or Tuesday.

On the road to Wichita

Tyler Wiederhoeft of CRFF went to Wichita for the game.

I had a blast. I would go back in a heartbeat. I hope OSU and Wichita State become non-conference basketball rivals, because I think it would be a fun rivalry to have every year. It made going 60 mph on Interstate 35 worth it. It just so happened this game fit my schedule this year. If the two teams match up in Wichita again, I may have to mold my schedule to fit the game. Next year, the Shockers come down to Stillwater to finish up the home-and-home series. I would highly recommend making this trip, should the stars align again in the future. [CRFF]

Good stuff there. I’d love 2-4 home-and-home games with teams at Wichita’s caliber every year.

OSU trending the right direction

Mark Cooper always writes a great gamer. This one is no different.

The Cowboys snapped Wichita State’s 42-game home nonconference winning streak and became the first team to score 80 points against the Shockers in a regulation game since 2009.

“We’re starting to grow and get better,” OSU coach Brad Underwood said. “And today was another step. We were better this week than we were last week. And that’s all I can ask for with this basketball team.” [Tulsa World]

Also, let’s watch Underwood address his team in the locker room.

And check in on WSU’s worst home losses under Gregg Marshall.

Tyrone Swoopes, tight end?

This is interesting.

After spending four seasons as a quarterback at Texas, Tyrone Swoopes said Saturday he plans to enter the NFL draft as a tight end.

“After the season, I spoke with some agents,” Swoopes told Orangebloods.com. “They all said that (moving to tight end) was the right move based on everything they were hearing (from scouts and league sources). [Yahoo]

I presumed Swoopes was going to be back for another year. Like he was their Gabe Lindsay or something.
