Three Thoughts

• Texas and OU are officially leavingOU president wants to play OSU in everything, citing Iowa/Iowa State, Clemson/South Caorlina, and Georgia/Georgia Tech as examples

President Harroz’s comments were gracious and tasteful, full stop. And witty. But here’s what it boils down to, Mr. President:

You could have gone somewhere with the Pokes and not the Horns. That was important before.

NCAA is looking at overhauling how they manage college sports – can’t help but wonder if OSU would be in a different place if they had stepped in as a “college football commissioner” of sorts

• Pretty cool – while the New York Yankees were gathering stars, they went ahead and grabbed former Cowboy ace Andrew Heaney for minor leaguers

Welcome to the big
, Andrew!

Two Quotes

ESPN’s Marty Smith raved about his trip to Stillwater – he was brought in for Cade’s draft party. Pretty wild considering all the hubbub with his employer this week:

"I couldn't say greater things about what I've experienced here in Stillwater."

Thanks to @MartySmithESPN and the @ABCNetwork crew for taking our @NBADraft Watch Party to another level.#NewEra I #GoPokes

This is the take of the OU fans I admire – bummed it didn’t work out and respect for what OSU has become.

In all seriousness, I’m excited about OU in the SEC, but I am also extremely bummed for Oklahoma State and the Bedlam Rivalry. OSU has built a top notch athletic program from top to bottom and it stinks they’ve sort of been left behind in this conversation. It’s not fair.

One Question

• How incredibly fortuitous are the Pokes have their best football coach of all-time is here to posture them for the biggest conference leap the Pokes need to make since getting into the Big Eight?

Most Viewed of the Week

• No. 1 Big Ten not interested in non-AAU schools

• No. 2 What four-16 team leagues would look like

• No. 3 Could the PAC-12 pull together a super league?

• No. 4 What would merging the AAC and Big 12 look like?

• No. 5 Bob Stoops explains the move, takes shot at OSU

Non-OSU Bullets

• Solid business model: mowing with goats
• This draft guide turned into a ranking after that was helpful for processing

“You can usually accomplish more by giving something your full effort for a few years rather than giving it a lukewarm effort for fifty years.

Pick a priority for this season of your life and do it to the best of your ability.”
