    Thanks Coach Boynton for putting in such hard work!!

    Like everyone else here, I'm definitely concerned about the season so far. Things seemed so great when we were in Brooklyn stomping everybody out. The regression into Big 12 play has definitely been concerning. I am in the camp of giving Boynton another year or two. I know that is not a popular...

    MBB: Oklahoma State vs. #2 Baylor Bears (ESPN2 11AM GIA)

    I 100% agree with everything you just said. But it is 2020 and I have the attention span of a gold fish. Hit enter every now and then and break that up into several paragraphs next time! ;)

    Oklahoma State @ #22 Texas Tech (11AM - ESPN2)

    I really agree with a lot of this. If Waters is a 15-20 minute stand in the corner and drain threes type of player, you have a really good team. If he is your primary option to score and breakdown defenses, you are in trouble. The seniors have done a lot for this program, and have laid the...

    Cowboy Basketball vs Syracuse

    The two kids at the end of the Syracuse bench make this highlight even better. Stand up to over-celebrate a baseline dunk then Yor makes sure they promptly take their seats.

    Can this get pinned as a daily reminder?

    Cowboy Basketball vs Yale

    I agree with this. I came in for the KU game when we had Smart, Nash, and Brown roaming the floor, and the arena was damn near sold out - if not fully sold out. I also was at a women's game when the OU coach said our fans don't go to those games and I'm pretty sure that was sold out as well...

    Cowboy Basketball vs Yale

    This is such a true statement. He is so physically gifted. I wonder how much he understands the game. As @JoeHero pointed out (Fins Up, by the way!), he seems to struggle with when to insert himself into the offensive game plan. I wonder how much plays we actually have where he is the main...

    Mason v. Baker Tonight

    Bingo. This is exactly what came to mind when I saw this in slow motion. Rudolph was clearly frustrated with both the loss and his performance. That frustration was exasperated when Garret drove him into the ground. Play this out: if all that happened was Rudolph grabbed at his jersey/helmet...

    Mason v. Baker Tonight

    Yep. Even Baker said it was unacceptable and inexcusable. Anyone trying to put any blame on Mason here is flat out ignorant. Louis Riddick and Steve Smith Sr. both were incredibly blunt in their criticism of Myles here. This isn't a two-side argument. What Myles Garrett did was unacceptable. Period.

    Can Boynton get the trifecta?

    I'm not super surprised. He stated during the course of his recruitment that he wanted a "basketball first" school, which KU definitely is. And, truth be told, not every kid wants to win a National Championship. Regardless of the pending sanctions against KU, they will still play next season...

    2020 MBB General Recruiting Thread

    I'm not going to lose too much sleep over this one, fellas. It would have been AMAZING to add him to this class - but we got Cade! I'm still not coming down from that high. In my opinion, it is probably the best Non-OSU scenario (well, maybe UNC). With KU's coming sanctions, he wont be a post...

    He was all over the Cade Cunningham signing and nailed it.

    My dreams are slowly coming true

    I'll echo these comments. I dont chime in very much about football on this board. I love the football team - I never miss a game. But I also love the soccer team, the baseball team, the cross country team (of which, I was on). My friends joke that if Oklahoma State had a varsity corn hole team...

    Cowboy Basketball: vs ORU Game Thread

    Yeah, and we also should not expect McGriff to go 0-6(!) every night. I grew up in Connecticut watching Calhoun's UConn teams. They typically started the season poor offensively. It was Calhoun's philosophy. Offense comes in College Hoops. Those shots will start to fall as they get more...
