The Morning Fade – 3.3.11



What They’re Saying
1. Rickie Fowler couldn’t win one of my Os(u)cars but he got one nonetheless – “Is he trying to look like a human traffic cone or a crossing guard with this look? No, Fowler’s orange get-up simply comes from his love for his alma mater, Oklahoma State. He also pulls off similar outfits in blue, green and pink.” (Golf Digest)

2. LeBryan Nash has a website – That will probably help a guy who struggles with his ego and has been described as his own worst enemy. (Media 411)

3. Ubben has Levy Adcock as the Big 12’s 14th best player – “Oklahoma State threw the ball 532 times this season, third-most in the Big 12. Adcock made it through the season without giving up one of the Cowboys’ 10 sacks. Offensive line coach Joe Wickline graded out his tackle at over 80 percent every game this year, and he even topped out with a 100 percent grade in a road win over Texas, which boasted a solid defensive line with talents like Sam Acho and Kheeston Randall. For his efforts, the 6-foot-6, 322-pound Adcock was a unanimous All-Big 12 first-team selection and is one-fifth of a Cowboys offensive line that all return for the 2011 season.” (ESPN)

4. OU women beat OSU women for the 24th time in 25 games – The only break in that streak? Riley’s 45-point virtuoso performance in GIA. I was there for that, Dez was running around on the court after the game, students were rushing him as well as the girls, it was a moment. Sounds like Coach Budke needs some of the old women’s scout team back… (Tulsa World)

5. LeBryan had 43 in 2OT to keep Lincoln alive in the playoffs – He could have 143 and I still wouldn’t be excited. I really wish I could buy in but I just can’t right now. (ESPN)

6. Big 12 wrestling is making the transition to 4 teams – “Adding more schools would not necessarily make the conference better, said John Smith. Even with only four teams, the Big 12 is stronger than most in wrestling, he said.Three of those four teams have won national championships. For that reason, it’s legit. It’s a very tough conference even with four teams. When you look at bringing teams in, they need to be bringing something.” (News OK)

7. Bill Haisten with a strong article about free falling attendance – “Consider this: If OU or OSU announces that 10,000 tickets are sold for a particular game, and only 6,000 fans are in the arena, that means 4,000 tickets were unused. That’s an ugly display of indifference.”(Tulsa World)

8. Bo Van Pelt visits with Jimmie Tramel – He tells Tramel that his three favorite OSU basketball players are, in order: Brooks Thompson, Scott Pierce, and Tony Allen. (Tulsa World)

Quote to Note
Rick Barnes when facing questions about his team’s late-season collapses and tournament woes…

I would have cared 10 years ago. This is not the most important thing in my life. It’s what I do, but it’s not the most important thing in my life.
