Happy Halloween, everyone!

Jawun Evans Debuts for the LA Clippers

After being activated by the Clippers last week, Evans saw his first game action against the Golden State Warriors. He played 7 minutes, and had 6 points and 1 assist. It’s fitting that his first bucket in the pros (the video above) was his signature running floater.

Congrats, Jawun! Hopefully last night was just the start!

Odds for CFB Teams to Win Out:

This SBNation article by Bill Connelly details the teams remaining in the College Football Playoff hunt and their possibility of winning out. Surprisingly, he has Oklahoma State higher on his list than Oklahoma among the 1-loss teams that have a chance to win out. Saturday will go a long way in deciding the Big 12, but one thing is for sure, one team will be one step closer to the title hunt.

Gundy Cool Under Pressure with Bedlam Looming:

Bill Haisten of the Tulsa World wrote a fantastic article about Mike Gundy and how a few years can change him. With the biggest game of the Cowboys season coming up on Saturday, Gundy seems as relaxed as ever.

An excerpt from the Tulsa World’s coverage of an infamous Gundy media session: “From the moment he walked into the room, the OSU coach seemed as though he wanted to be anywhere else. On a couple of occasions, he appeared to be texting as he stood at the lectern.

“If there were a device that could measure stress, Gundy would have buried the needle.”

This was 3 years ago, when Oklahoma State was in the middle of a five-game losing streak, and was staring the possibility of not going to a bowl game right in the face. A lot has changed in the last three years. Since then, the Cowboys are 29-7 and have once against established themselves as a powerful program, both in the Big 12 and nationally.

This week, as the eighth-ranked Sooners visit the 11th-ranked Cowboys for Saturday’s 3 p.m., FS1-televised battle at Boone Pickens Stadium, Oklahoma State is favored. For the fourth time during this decade, OSU is the Bedlam favorite. Gundy has lessened the gap between the programs.
