    Stoops Finds a Bright Spot, Sooners Still Have a Lot Left

    After losing to Kansas State last Saturday in Norman, Oklahoma’s football team is now just 2-2 in the conference and more than likely out of the hunt for the Big 12 and national title. Sooner players know they have five games left to play in the regular season and anything can happen, similar to last year’s team that won Bedlam and then the Sugar Bowl over Alabama. While mistakes were the obvious reason for the loss to K-State, the OU  […]

    Cowboys Hope They Learned Lessons From Last Year

    Oklahoma State’s men’s basketball team was expected to contend for the Big 12 title and maybe make a run at the Final Four before last season. The Cowboys never got close to either goal, as a key injury, a suspension to star Marcus Smart, and the lack of a strong post presence led to a tough season. Now OSU is without Smart and Markel Brown, both on NBA rosters now, and the expectations are much lower. OSU is picked to finish 8th […]

  • Sooners Lose Two; Titles Seem Out of Reach

  • Cowboys Stunned by TCU’s Big Plays

    Oklahoma State’s football team had their five-game winning streak end Saturday with a 42-9 loss at TCU.

Then in the second half, TCU scored on a pair of clock-eating drives to puncuate the rout. The loss was OSU’s worst since 2008, and a  young Cowboys team must try to regroup for this […]
