Merry Christmas!

I think we reached our limit of people on the bracket challenge, sorry if you didn’t make it in this year. We’ll probably do two groups next year.

This got a little buried yesterday but here’s your 2013 OSU Tournament infographic. (PFB)

Great statistical work here on predicted wins by seed. (SB Nation)

Good stats from Berry here. The winning percentage jump is crazy. (NewsOK)

Haha, OSU would have to be the *second* (edit: Sorry, 1985 Villanova!) team to beat six single-digit seeds to win it all. (Sports Illustrated)

If Smart is on his game, Oklahoma State can play deep into the tournament. (ESPN Insider)

Dana Altman on his time at Kansas State: I usually remember Eddie Sutton’s team kicking our (rear). … Eddie was unbelievable to me. I was a very young coach at the time and he was really good to me. Not on the court, but off the court. (Tulsa World)

Oregon

Oregon doesn’t have any Tournament experience either. (Register-Guard)

The silver lining for Oregon. (NewsOK)

Oregon’s starting PG (the one they went 21-4 with) is 100% healthy. (Oregonian)

I did a pod with the Oregon fellas. I come in around the 29:00 mark. (Addicted to Quack)

I’m sorry, this was awesome.

    Don’t know if you read the Slater piece about pressing, but it seems like we shouldn’t full-court press. Sounds like we should put pressure on them in their half-court offense.

    Why did I find the 14th best buzzer beater to be the most satisifying? Oh, I know – OU LOST!
