Shout out to Pistolsmom for keeping GIA rowdy last night. What a night.
Marcus Smart: We’ve been through a lot of adversity this yea. That’s all coming into play right now. Late in the season, that’s when teams start to rise and teams start to fall. (O’Colly)
Large mock draft on CBS has Nash and Smart in the top 50. (CBS Sports)
Markel on his game winner: I wasn’t even thinking about it (the time remaining). I took two glances at it and it had five seconds left, so I was just trying to beat the clock as fast as I can. (O’Colly)
Wow, OSU has already surpassed last year’s win total. (NewsOK)
Agree with this on Brian Williams — he looked pretty good at times last night. (Tulsa World)
Mike Cobbins: I just figured we had come too far to give up a layup at the end. I just went up and tried to get it. Thank God I got it. (NewsOK)
Mike Gundy loves on Mike Holder. (NewsOK)
I do like the one-sentence descriptions of each recruit. All that’s really necessary. (CRFF)
Gundy’s close on an O-coordinator. (NewsOK)
Gundy says they “needed a spark” on defense. (Tulsa World)
Hmmmm….Cooper Bassett as a TE in the NFL? (NewsOK)
Good roundup of Big 12 signing day from Ubben. (ESPN)
One OSU recruit was drawn in by its…graphic design program? (NewsOK)
I will say I feel like Gundy has been going to the “this is the best ——– we’ve ever had here” well pretty often in the last 18 months. This time on incoming D-linemen. (Tulsa World)
Super in-depth look at all of OSU’s recruits. (Scout)
Gundy had some interesting things to say about his recruiting theory. (NewsOK)
Josh Holliday: I’m nervous a little bit, to be honest with you. Excited about all the things that we’ve got …. It’s just human nature. You’re excited about when you arrive on (your) first job, yet nerve-racking at the same time. You don’t want to mess anything up. (NewsOK)
I just….what happened to Kansas?? (Yahoo)
This bracket project is incredible. (Kickstarter)
KD porn. (Grantland)
Oooooooooklahoma, where Markel comes sweeping down the lane. #okstate

This was dirty, but ultimately futile.
Lord have mercy.
What does the U.S. loss mean?

I just sent this to all 30 front offices with the subject line: “Marcus Smart sucks”
This looks spectacular.
