Josh Fields was traded to the Rockies yesterday. That’d be great if Matt Holliday was still in town. Remember when Fields was a can’t-miss 3B prospect for the White Sox? Baseball, specifically the minor leagues, can be cruel. (Tulsa World)

I got some texts yesterday about how it’s becoming tough to continue being a Dez fan. I can’t disagree. I don’t care that you’ve never committed a felony if you can’t keep your name out of the news for more than a fortnight for something stupid you did. (ESPN)

Gundy hopes Anyiam can play the Robin role splendidly this year. (News OK)

Marshall Moses calls Mike Cobbins a “skinny Marcus Morris” and Travis Ford calls Brian Williams “LaceDarius Dunn” — so this should be the best team in Big 12 history next year, right? (Tulsa World)

As David Ubben points out, you might have to check to make sure you have FX for the upcoming OSU football season. (ESPN)

Brad Propst was named Big 12 pitcher of the week for his efforts in shutting out Texas on Saturday. Check back later today as I talk about this series with O’Colly assistant sports editor, Anthony Slater. (okstate.com)

John Smith was named conference coach of the year. Yawn. As FreeMason10 pointed out yesterday, “he probably feels the same way about those awards as I do about my tee ball trophies.” (okstate.com)

Gundy can’t figure out whether or not to let Randle and Smith get tackled in spring practice. I remember talking to a scout-team player before the 2009 season and asking him what would happen if Dez or Zac got hit in practice. His response: “you could just go clean your locker out because you’d be done here.” (News OK)

Great article here from Pete Thamel on the flattening landscape of college basketball. (New York Times)

Why does this keep happening, people? (O’Colly)

OSU is formally opposed to a federal trademark that would give Syracuse the rights to the word and color, “orange.” In a related story, so am I. (Inside Higher Ed)

John H. writes a funny, if not slightly haughty, post about the whole issue. (Sportspost)

Here are some random highlights of LeBryan and Austin Rivers. Rivers, who is Doc Rivers’ son, is ridiculous, I’d injure a small to medium-sized animal to get him to Stillwater next year.
