Oklahoma State is mentioned twice in this "What to watch" article, once for Wes Lunt and once for the defense. The article on Lunt yesterday explained his situation in depth. He has more to prove. But, both Mike Gundy and Lunt's teammates have continuously expressed outright confidence in the freshman signal caller. That means more than anything. As for the defense, the unit should not be underestimated. This article questions the line specifically, and while it may be the weak link of the Cowboy defense, it is still a force.
This is a great feature from O'Colly sports editor Brendon Morris. It takes a deep look at Glenn Spencer and the loss of his wife, his relationship with his sons, his bond with his players and how all these factors influence his coaching.

This information has been out for a while, but basketball coach Travis Ford named Marcus Smart starting point guard for the upcoming season.
