    NCAA Men's Golf Championships at Karsten Creek

    Completely agree. None of it makes any sense at all. And everyone has had a few years now to figure something out.

    NCAA Men's Golf Championships at Karsten Creek

    Holder fought for it. NCAA did it. The NCAA could have done just a tiny bit of thinking and decided to provide a handful of tournaments throughout the year that provide the same format so that teams can put themselves into the position to experience the format beforehand.

    NCAA Men's Golf Championships at Karsten Creek

    Good lord that's terrible. How in the world do you go with a format that is not provided during the regular season? It boggles my mind how many times those in charge forget to use common sense.

    NCAA Men's Golf Championships at Karsten Creek

    I don't follow much college golf until it gets to this point. Are there college tournaments throughout the season that use the match play format?

    OSU basketball to play South Carolina -- Mike Boynton's alma mater -- in Big 12/SEC Challenge

    Big 12 Baseball Tournament

    Beginning of the year turd - "See, I knew we sucked. Our coaches suck, our program sucks, everything sucks." Cream Cheese - "See, I knew we were good. Our coaches are the best, RW should be president." End of the year turd - "See, I knew we sucked. Our coaches suck, our program sucks...

    Big 12 Baseball Tournament

    That team was UCLA, who finished the season with an RPi of 65........ Finished 19-11 in the PAC 12, good for 3rd in the PAC 12 Conference, for 2017, the #5 ranked conference in the country. UCLA's SOS was 31st, ours right now is 18th. Gives some better perspective to the situation, rather...

    Big 12 Baseball Tournament

    It should be a lock, considering the #'s. 37th in the RPI now, after losing to Tech today, finished 2nd in the Big XII Conference (#2 RPI conference in the nation). We're probably looking at a 3 seed in a regional with a top 8 national seed. But, committees have done weird things in the...

    Big 12 Baseball Tournament

    I agree. But, I certainly can't blame anyone frustrated with how we played in this tournament. We're just simply not playing good baseball right now. There's no way to sugar coat that. This has certainly been a very weird season. I just hope the committee doesn't do something screwy and...

    Cowboy Basketball Expectations, Going Forward

    I see where you're coming from, but we've never done that (sweeping Bedlam) consistently in the entire history of our program. Kruger is a good coach, so I just don't see that as a realistic expectation.

    Big 12 Baseball Tournament

    If OU goes 2 & BBQ, they may play themselves right into a 3 seed. Of course, I feel the same thing about us. We need to win a couple of games to get a decent 2 seed.

    Cowboy Basketball Expectations, Going Forward

    I think the way I see it is this - make the NCAA Tournament and keep making it. I feel like with the conference we play in, the facilities we have, the fan support we will have if we win a decent amount of games each year - it's not too much to ask to be in the Big Dance pretty much every year...

    Cowboy Basketball Expectations, Going Forward

    So I thought I would edit this a bit. What is everyone's expectations for the basketball program going forward? Especially now that we seem to have a pretty good coach at the helm.

    Baseball Recruiting

    Thanks a bunch for the updates. Insightful as usual. SS does concern me too, as I don't see Kroon returning. Of course it would really help if we get Morrill to campus, but that may not happen. I'm still intrigued by Hewitt though. I still think he could be the answer with some extra...

    Baseball Recruiting

    The 2019 class looks like it's full of studs, hopefully we can get most of them to campus. For the 2018 class, could you update us on possible JUCO guys who could come in and give us immediate help for the 2019 season?

    Texas Tech Baseball Series

    We'll be there tomorrow. Really wish we could have attended all 3, but work wouldn't allow it.... We need as many butts in Allie P. as we can get for the next 2 days. These boys deserve our support.

    Texas Tech Baseball Series

    Was really hoping that Chappell and Dobbs would work out at SS. Hueston Morrill come on down. We need to get him to campus.

    Texas Tech Baseball Series

    So, just did some looking at the roster on okstate.com. I may have a case of the Friday's, but I'm not seeing Cameron Dobbs. Did he move on?
