    Thunder Fall in Memphis 122-114

    The Oklahoma City Thunder dropped their second straight contest losing 122-114 to the Memphis Grizzlies. It’s the most points the Grizzlies have scored in a game this season. The Thunder were without starter Andre Roberson who sat out with what’s being called flu like symptoms and OKC missed him. Hometown hero Cameron Payne knocked down a three pointer as time expired to give OKC a one point lead heading into the fourth quarter. After that, the Thunder allowed Memphis to […]

    OSU hopes 2011 history doesn’t repeat itself

    2011 was arguably the greatest season in Oklahoma State football history, winning the school`s first Big 12 title and the Fiesta Bowl. The only blemish on the schedule that year a road loss to Iowa State. The current Cowboys are well aware they face similar circumstances, and some of the upperclassmen were even in Ames for that loss. ‘Four years ago we were in the same position we are now,’ Emmanuel Ogbah, OSU defensive end, said. ‘We were 10-0 I […]

    Cowboys calm, cool, collected as they strive for College Football Playoff

    After losing five straight games at the end of last season Oklahoma State has reeled off eleven straight wins and the Cowboys are currently in the mix for the college football playoff.

    Old coach’s cliche becoming OU team motto?

    Bob Stoops has never lost to Iowa State. In fact each of those wins has been by double digits, but you won’t see the Sooners overlooking the Cyclones. A week by week outlook is sometimes viewed as a cliche, but for Stoops’ troops that mentality seems to be taking off. Especially since after that loss to Texas. “There’s so much out there that the whole world wants to project at you, and that’s what they’re supposed to do I’m not […]

    Lincoln leading OU offense on smooth ride

    If you’re a fan of plenty of points and high powered offense OU’s definitely had that the last three games. In each of those wins they’ve had at least 30 first downs a first in school history for three straight games. Plus they scored 50 plus points in each of those wins a first since Sam Bradford was out here playing quarterback. So it’s safe to say Lincoln Riley’s offense is taking off. “Man, he’s blown me away with the […]

    Thunder visit Stillwater victims at hospital

The Thunder all got on a bus and headed to the hospital to bring gift baskets and joy to some of the youngsters and their families affected by Saturday’s tragedy in Stillwater. The team spent time taking pictures, joking around with […]
