Men’s Golf: Tied for First to win the Columbus Regional @ NCAA Regional (Columbus, OH)
• Two big(ish) NCAA Changes – another step taken towards (functionally) removing divisions in college football and no football scholarship limits on recruiting classes for next two years (playing catch up after COVID season/transfer portal opened
Pac-12 has already decided to “remove divisions” and make the conference title game the teams with the best records
• Cowboy and Cowgirl Golf both won their regionals – Eugenio Lopez-Chacarra won individual title
• Berry Tramel nailed it here – Eddie Sutton was the king of transfers before the transfer portal.
…(T)he transfer game worked famously for Sutton. Five of his rotational players off the 2004 Final Four team were four-year transfers (including Jason Miller from North Texas).
From Sean Sutton to the Graham twins, Eddie Sutton rebuilt OSU basketball with transfers. He was ahead of his time.
• Pretty cool – Cowboy Basketball will be headed to Storrs to play UConn next season
• OSU announced the signing of two transfers coming into the men’s basketball program (John-Michael Wright + Caleb Asberry)
CBS has a Cowboy as a sleeper pick to win the PGA – and it’s not Wolff or Hovland.
Sleeper — Talor Gooch (100-1): He’s a former Oklahoma State Cowboy, so we have that narrative crossed off the list; but in all seriousness, Gooch’s statistical profile should fit Southern Hills. A top-notch iron player and a capable scrambler, the 30-year-old ranks seventh in this field in total strokes gained over his last 50 rounds.
• Previewing the Stillwater Regional for college softball that starts Friday
• Why company culture is worth $150m
• Liked some of these 100 tools for “an easy life”
