Morning Links: Spencer Wants No Praise for the Oklahoma State Defense, Future Non-Conference Scheduling


A look around the world of noteworthy Oklahoma State Cowboys news and notes, as well as other relevant stories from the Big 12 and sports world in general.

Stillwater and Beyond

  • Don’t heap any praise on Glenn Spencer’s defense: “You’re one game away from congratulations becoming condemnations,” Spencer said. “You’re one play away on our side from a pat on the back becoming a stab in the back.”
  • CRFF’s Gerald Tracy III highlights why Jimmy Bean and Emmanuel Ogbah are such a great duo up front.
  • If you missed Mike Gundy’s press conference this week, I highly suggest you watch it, as Gundy is in prime form, addressing everything from Chris Carson being a part of his Sunday YouTube watching, to David Glidden being too short to partake in rides at Six Flags, to not wanting to jinx Zach Sinor’s punting by talking about it.
  • If you’re annoyed with the Cowboys’ non-conference schedule the last, oh, decade, consider this good news from John Helsley.
  • Apparently Dez Bryant’s foot injury is the same as Kevin Durant’s. Dallas fans are definitely hoping for a different outcome.
  • Former Cowboy basketball star Tony Allen recently got ahold of something to help him pass the time in between NBA seasons:

Elsewhere and Otherwise

  • Iowa State defensive back and budding star Jarnor Jones has had quite the journey getting to Ames.
  • Duke head coach David Cutcliffe is a classy guy, and showed it by sending a note to injured Pitt running back James Connor:
  • Jake Trotter examines the myriad of reasons as to why Steve Patterson sucked as an athletic director.
  • Georgia Tech head coach Paul Jones wins, and wins often, even if it’s unconventional and frustrates people.
  • Saturday Blitz’s Michael Collins thinks the whole SEC vs. Ohio State things is, well, dumb.
