Forgetting the Clutch

By Chet Kennedy We’ve all had or heard the MVP debate. I personally have said horrific things to friends, family and loved ones defending our beloved Prairie King’s claim to the trophy. When you hear insane, ignorant things like “Harden should be MVP”, the anger is rightfully justified. As Mother Teresa probably once said, “Respect the Brodie, or I’ll cut you”.  It’s easy to forgive … Continue reading Forgetting the Clutch

Money Mike Doubles Down

By Glen Chenoweth  Well that didn’t take long, again. Barely after news broke of the failed #BringDougHome campaign, the university announced Assistant Coach Mike Boynton would be the new Sheriff of GIA, erupting Stillwater into euphoric celebrations of Caligula-esque hysteria…or something like that. You really have to hand it to Mike Holder, hiring a candidate that’s somehow even less sexier than the James Dickey option … Continue reading Money Mike Doubles Down

Hit It and Quit It

By Glen Chenoweth When the final buzzer sounded last Friday afternoon it hurt. Not the usual disappointment and “what could’ve been” thoughts that generally accompany first round losses, this was more of the “we just took 16 3-pointers straight to the balls” variety.

A Rough Night For OKC

By Shayden Smith To say the Thunder had a rough game would be more of an understatement than saying Kevin Durant destroyed the souls of Oklahoman’s everywhere. The Thunder were looking good coming into Monday night as the Golden State Warriors came into OKC, winning their last five games. Russell Westbrook has been on an incredible run lately that would make any basketball fan cry … Continue reading A Rough Night For OKC

Gibson Makes His Mark

By Shayden Smith How good really is Russell Westbrook? Just ask the fans in Brooklyn. They had no problem chanting “MVP” Tuesday night when the OKC Thunder came into town to take on the struggling Nets. I respect that the Brooklyn fans recognized greatness, but this was not a late game situation. They started chanting it early in the first quarter. Brooklyn fans really need … Continue reading Gibson Makes His Mark

Is This The Year David Takes Down Goliath?

By Walter Agnitsch The biggest upset in the history of sports! Never has a sixteen seed upset a number one seed in the men’s NCAA basketball tournament. Could this be the year this all changes? We are in a world where basketball is becoming more and more popular. More people are playing the sport, meaning that the competition for these dominant powerhouse schools is getting … Continue reading Is This The Year David Takes Down Goliath?

Westbrook the Great

By Shayden Smith What makes a player great? Leading the league in scoring? Averaging a triple-double? Making crazy commercials that make fun of sushi in Oklahoma? Let’s be honest, the sushi here is a little sketchy. The real path to greatness begins with one of the most important things all super-stars should have: leadership. When someone thinks of the greatest leaders the game of basketball … Continue reading Westbrook the Great
