Great quotes here from Avery Anderson and his decision to stick around Stillwater – solid explanations on the “testing the waters” process on the draft also

• Bedlam Baseball will be played in Tulsa tonight

• This is really cool – President Bush’s “first pitch” at O’Brate Stadium has been rescheduled to next week. He was initially scheduled to throw in 2020

• After Viktor Hovland finished T3 at the Wells Fargo Championship over the weekend, big expectations as we head toward the PGA Championship

• PFF lists KHP and Tre Sterling as two of the best returning safeties in the country this fall

• The Pokes’ freshman 125-pounder is transferring out of Stillwater

• I’ll spend some time today trying to guess at what Coach Bonton means here.

Still humbled to have been in his presence. What a man! I look forward to celebrating a long overdue recognition. That won’t be the only great thing to happen to @OSUMBB this week.

And then you’re much more likely to persuade the person…
