National Reaction to Oklahoma State being snubbed:
Coming out of the gates hot this afternoon. It’s no secret that myself, our writers, and most Oklahoma State fans out there feel like the Cowboys were robbed of a spot in the NCAA Tournament. What’s more, there have been plenty of national analysts, coaches, players and media members coming out in support of the Cowboys after a disappointing Selection Sunday. Here are some notable clips:
Syracuse being in vs Ok State is just laughable. Getting extra credit for Buffalo/Iona wins in non-conference. Cuse didn’t beat a top 3 opponent in their league- 3 best wins @miami vs VT,vs Clemson - lost to Wake,BC,GT— Doug Gottlieb (@GottliebShow) March 11, 2018
They disrespected Oklahoma State so bad they should've easily made the NCAA tournament.. that's crazy— Solomon Young (@number33allstar) March 11, 2018
Mitchell Solomon talking about this team is awesome, but hard to watch:
Getting snubbed of an NCAA Tournament bid is disappointing enough for the fans, but it affects the players in a far greater capacity. For guys that put it on the line all season, and tallied some incredible upset wins, this decision by the NCAA Tournament committee is one that isn’t taken lightly.
Mitchell Solomon spoke to media after learning the Cowboys’ fate, and he got choked up when talking about Mike Boynton and this season. Check it out:

Mike Boynton speaks to the media after March Madness snub:
"We still have more basketball to play. We have an opportunity to continue to lay the foundation."— Cowboy Basketball (@OSUMBB) March 12, 2018
Here's what @thacoachmike had to say to the media after last night's selection show. pic.twitter.com/wLGShzBQw5
He didn’t hold back on expressing his disappointment. On the NIT Selection Show on ESPNU last night, Boynton was asked why Oklahoma got in but Oklahoma State did not. His response was epic.
Boynton: "Obviously they didn't think that winning against Kansas twice, at West Virginia, beating Florida State on a neutral court, beating Oklahoma twice, beating Texas Tech ... was good enough." #okstate— Cowboys Ride For Free (@CowboysRFF) March 12, 2018
Boynton: "While we're disappointed, we know the opportunity to continue our season is a great one. We've got really good kids, which is the only way we could have success with all of the noise around our program over the last 12 months." #okstate— Cowboys Ride For Free (@CowboysRFF) March 12, 2018

This should be an interesting matchup. Florida Gulf Coast (#DunkCity) was the top seed in the Atlantic Sun Conference, but got bounced in the championship game by Lipscomb. If the Cowboys win tomorrow night, they’ll host the winner of Stanford/BYU.
