What They’re Saying
1. OSU atheletics posted an Eddie Sutton playlist in honor of him making the college basketball hall of fame yesterday. The “Eddie Sutton Outtakes” are hilarious (posted below). (YouTube)

2. Ubben looks at a best case/worst case of OSU’s 2010. Great quote here, ” Texas and Oklahoma State were in a class of their own for the Big 12’s most surprising team. The difference was the Cowboys enjoyed their wild ride. I’d have to think even the most optimistic of Oklahoma State fans would have a hard time honestly believing the Cowboys could win 11 games at the beginning of the season.” I’ve got a pair of PFB contributors that swore me up and down we’d win 10 games. (ESPN)

3. OSU takes on Missouri State in a Tuesday afternoon baseball tilt. (okstate.com)

4. Jenni Carlson makes the case for Eddie in the Naismith Hall of Fame – Really I’m good with just the college hall of fame for now but I appreciate the sentiments from her. (News OK)

5. Great work here by Jimmie Tramel profiling Songo Adoki – My favorite line from the article, “Adoki said it has been his dream to play at OSU since he was 8, when a friend took him to a game at Gallagher-Iba Arena. Adoki watched Desmond Mason and immediately became a Cowboy fan.” Yeah, who didn’t? (Tulsa World)

6. Orie Lemon put up the 5th most reps on the bench press at the Combine yesterday (NFL.com)

Quote to Note
Leonard Bishop, Dallas Lincoln head coach on LeBryan Nash,

“He’s one of the best I’ve ever coached, that’s for sure. As far as other guys around, he’s comparable to the other McDonald’s All-Americans we’ve had in Dallas, from Darrell Arthur, Chris Bosh, those guys. He’s comparable to those guys at this stage.”
