    I think it is. Have you ever had a broken bone? You don't get to workout, you don't get reps, your timing is off, you have to feel it out and may be timid, and it likely won't feel completely right even after you're a go. I'd say a full year of recovery to be back to "normal" with no setbacks...

    Spence Sanders mom tweets

    Gundy made a decision based on the things he told us: 1. Dru and Spencer got to campus to late to be serious contendors to start game one. 2. Gundy and the coaches debated how to use the new redshirt rule of four games. 3. Gundy does not want to burn a redshirt on this season for the following...

    New Season Starts

    The first game was promising without Westbrook or Roberson against the Warriors. 1. We have a pesky defense. 2. George and Shroeder had good D, didn't heat up until second half. 3. Adams is great healthy. 4. Noel, Shroeder, and Diallo (despite rookie mistakes) all look like good fits. 5...

    VOTE! How will Coach Gundy handle the QB situation the remainder of the season?

    Of note: with a bowl game, we have 8 games remaining. I wouldn't be surprised if we rout ISU, we see one finish the game. I see this team winning 7 regular season games, maybe 8 depending on TX at this point. Losses to OU, WVU, and TCU. I do see ways we could beat TX and TCU. OU and WVU are...

    Official Game Thread: Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma State

    My takeaways: 1. Bad game from Cornelius who missed too many throws and completed less than 50%, but the pick he threw downfield late was Tyron Johnson's fault. He pushed off too early then didn't fight for the ball. We don't have a tall guy like Ateman for jump balls. Tylan Wallace plays bigger...

    Coach Gundy Week 2 Press Conference

    I thought the receivers played terrific. I don't remember a bad drop, when Cornelius got it to them accurately, we caught it. I thought play calling and WR play were stregnths. RB was a huge stregnth, and QB/Oline mediocre to good. I wouldn't write off the idea Gundy is saving Brown in his...

    1987, Thomas and Sanders the best duo ever. Didn't really matter past that...

    2018 Thunder Offseason

    I think he's fine when the matchup is right, but we need Jerami against quick teams like the Warriors for defense.

    QB Situation

    Not to jinx anyone, but I don't remember a year we had a QB that ran the ball a lot (like our new offense may) and didn't have injuries throughout the season that required the backup to play. So, it's likely we could see more than one due to injury. Even Mason, who didn't run much had his share...

    QB Situation

    honestly think Dru Brown is the guy for all the reasons Gundy has stated. He has the most college game experience in the spread out of all three contendors. I think Cornelius looks suitable, but he doesn't have the ability to allude pressure and make plays like Dru Brown. At Hawaii Dru did look...

    Gilbert, Blackmon, Randle

    I think it makes total sense. Gundy came in and cleaned up a program that was pretty rocky culture-wise in the Les Miles era. We strayed a bit and took some chances on talented guys (some worked out like Dez, others did for a while then flamed, see names you mentioned). Gundy reprioritized a...

    2018 Thunder Offseason

    I see what you're saying. I agree they aren't done making moves. I think they need to shed a lot more salary. I imagine Singler, Patterson, Abrines, and Schroeder in that order may get traded before the deadline. Our payroll is still awfully high for a team with only 2 superstars, albeit two...

    2018 Thunder Offseason

    I think they start Grant. Westbrook, Roberson, George, Grant, and Adams may be the best D unit in the league. Westbrook and George are elite scorers, while feeding Adams is an option, and they will try to develop Grant's 3 ball. Grant and Adams both crash the D board hard for putbacks. The alley...

    2018 Thunder Offseason

    It's an awesome deal for the Thunder. It adds speed and scoring to a revamped bench unit that now has Nerlens Noel to go with Abrines, Ferguson, and Patterson (Felton at times too). I'm very surprised the Thunder took on the extra salary. They are essentially paying the difference of Melo's...

    2018 Thunder Offseason

    I saw Lin got traded from Nets to Hawks. He was in Thunder/Nets discussion, hopefully the Thunder can find a Melo trade partner so his salary doesn't hinder our future. Isiaah Thomas signed a $2mil ver min with Denver. I wish we had him off the bench, so he could provide a scoring boost for...

    Oklahoma State announces beer sales at Boone Pickens Stadium this fall, along with no re-entry policy

    I'm happy you brought this up. Let me preface this, I'm not a prohibitionist and I did my fair share of drinking in college. 1. The study and information was greatly flawd at WVU for a host of reasons, according to faculty/staff on campus at the time. Not much out there from a research...

    2018 Thunder Offseason

    I saw the Thunder would save $91 million in luxury tax if they stretch Melo over the three year max. If they do that it will give salary hits this year and the next two years of $9 million, thus limiting future flexibility. The thing I think people forget is that Melo would appove a trade as...

    2018 Thunder Offseason

    Cousins signing with GS might be awesome. He has a temper, and so does Draymond. Those two get in a fist fight and Boogie lands one on KD's soft lil cupcake jaw... Everyone wins!

    2018 Thunder Offseason

    Yeah, I'm not convinced the Thunder doesn't want Melo to come off the bench and see how he does. We have 2years over $5 mil to both Patterson and Singler, plus a contact over $5 mil to Abrines. I think all those guys are potential movers to free space for a guy like Tyreke Evans if we can get...
