Women’s Soccer: Cowgirls lost in the Quarterfinals of the Big 12 Tourney in PKs
• OSU is blacking out the stadium, unveiling the next statue of an OSU great during the TCU game
• Kickoff time for this weekend’s game against West Virginia has been set
• ESPN gave the Pokes a few paragraphs of thought on OSU’s CFP chances after the KU win:
The Cowboys rebounded from their 24-21 loss at Iowa State with a 55-3 thumping of Kansas on Saturday. It didn’t help Oklahoma State’s case that Iowa State lost at West Virginia. It’s one thing to lose a close game on the road to a top-25 team, but if the Cyclones spin below .500, it could be an issue.
Oklahoma State is ranked No. 4 in the country in defensive efficiency, but its offense has been mostly pedestrian. The Cowboys will have to win two of their last four on the road — Nov. 6 at West Virginia and Nov. 20 at Texas Tech. ESPN’s FPI only gives Oklahoma State a 35.4% chance to win Bedlam.
• ICYMI: Homecoming and Hoops had a new format this year – Bryce Thompson won the dunk contest
• This quote from Woody Newton, an OSU Basketball player who transferred in from Syracuse (and grew up in the DMV), is the epitome of why Mike Boynton is such a great fit in Stillwater:
“Ever since then, it’s just been real genuine. He was real nice to my parents, showed us around. I thought that was real big of him because he could’ve had someone else do that also. It’s just been nothing but love and genuine since I got here with Coach Mike.”
• Ten Thoughts from the Homecoming win over Kansas
• OSU will play TCU in two weeks without their all-time greatest coach who resigned yesterday:
• This tweet from halftime had me rolling Saturday night:
This guy gets it:
This take on good/bad ideas seems like the right one.
“Your time is better spent championing good ideas than tearing down bad ones.
The best thing that can happen to a bad idea is that it is forgotten. The best thing that can happen to a good idea is that it is shared.
Feed the good ideas and let bad ideas die of starvation.”
