What’s your take for the best basketball uni – cursive Cowboys or 95′ throwbacks? Here’s a cop-out – they’re both the ideal for home and away, respectively.

OSU Bullets

• How would you feel about OSU making the NIT this year?

If you are Oklahoma State, it would a good thing this year. It would be different than two years ago, when OSU deserved the NCAA Tournament bid that Oklahoma received and settled for the NIT instead. That felt miserable.

The Cowboys making the NIT this year? That would feel… well… I’m not sure cheerful is the right word. How about acceptable, or somewhere between the two. [TulsaWorld]

At this point in the Boynton tenure, I don’t know that it means a whole lot. You could almost squint your eyes and see the old football bowl argument “extra practices and games are good, right?”

Cowboy golf alum Charles Howell III has one of the sneakiest streaks in sports – 20 years of consistently solid professional play.

Howell’s T-53 at last week’s WGC-Mexico Championship went largely unnoticed, but he didn’t walk away empty handed, earning $39,100. So what? Well, that chunk of change took him to $1,022,917 in earnings for the season, pushing him over the $1 million mark for a 20th consecutive year. [Golf Digest]

Only golf legend Phil Mickelson has a longer streak (24 years).

One of the most important recruiting roles in Cowboy Football has absolutely nothing to do with any understanding of football – graphic designers.

“It’s a huge factor in recruiting right now,” said Oklahoma State recruiting coordinator Todd Bradford. “Because it’s all social media, like the kids all want. They all want custom graphics. They all want things that they can post. Our guys do an unbelievable great job of doing that, so that the kids have unique things to post.” [Pokes Report]
