Weekend Update

OSU activities on non-football weekends tend to get a little lost here on the blog so I wanted to bring everyone up to speed on a few things you might have missed while getting some well-deserved R&R at the lake (no, really, you deserved it)..

Baseball – Cowboys took two of three from OU in Tulsa/OKC to move into a tie for second (!) place in the Big 12 conference. National player of the year candidate, Andrew Heaney, was nasty as usual on Friday night, twirling a three hit shutout and mowing down the last 13 to give OSU a 2-0 W to open the series.

Then the Pokes split the weekend tilts, losing 8-4 on Saturday and winning 3-2 on Sunday. Saulyer Saxon (whose name makes him sound like the biggest fraternity boy d-bag of all time) had a strong weekend, going 5-11 at the plate and scoring three of OSU’s nine runs in the series.

Golf Big Rick Fowler got his first PGA W yesterday, taking down Rory and D.A. Points, a lumpy youngster who looks like a cross between Jason Dufner and Tim Herron (this is not a compliment). Fowler’s approach to the first playoff hole is the stuff they make commercials about (Nike commercials anyway, not sure what Puma does).

Oh, and taking home $1.17M doesn’t suck either.

UFC – I don’t follow fighting (I might be the least hostile blogger in the world) but since Johny Hendricks won a semi-controversial match against Jake Koscheck, I figured I should mention it. Koscheck channeled a little Bob Griffin saying about Hendricks,

He’s a good fighter. He won tonight. I’m not going to sit here and (expletive) and cry about a decision. I should’ve finished the fight. When it goes to the judges, I guess you have to have luck on your side, and I guess he had luck on his side. He won the fight.

As noted by Kevin DeShazo though, from what Beard Harden did on Saturday night, to Rick’s big win at Quail Hollow in the stache, to Hendricks’ victory in the beard on Saturday night, this weekend was not the ideal time to mess with athletes from Oklahoma sporting awesome (and sometimes appalling) facial hair.

Your move, handlebar-mustache-Weeden.
