Emails in on OU hoops trouble & Travis Ford
The new emails are in, and they’re all over the landscape. OU basketball, OSU basketball, my BCS ideas and even the Thunder pre-game prayer.
Let’s start with college basketball. Brad wrote, “I don’t like not giving the Cowboys any chance tomorrow. I think it will be a game.
I think that all depends on whether Blake Griffin allows OSU to get a rebound.
Jerry wrote, “I know it’s been a long tough season, but I have believed all year long that both the men and women teams have been overrated! I do think they are good but they better get their crap together or they are done early! I hope I’m wrong.”
Well, when you’re ranked No. 2, it’s hard to be underrated.
Leonard wrote, “Do you have a sense the OU women are as crisp and as effective as the stretch where they played Tennessee? I cannot remember so many travel calls in a game, never mind too many turnovers, and less than 50 percent at the free-throw line for most of the game. Still a very fine team, but seem some edges are getting rougher than smoother.”
No, OU isn’t as crisp. Just like the last three years, the Sooner guards are wilting down the stretch.
Robert wrote, “I have been buying your paper since I came to Oklahoma. You owe me a favor. Somehow tell Blake Griffin to put his mouthpiece in or get one that is comfortable. This makes me sick .I am about to watch someone else play ball. The OU girls have to quit passing the ball on the floor to Courtney. She is not made to pick up the ball of the floor.”
I would think of some wisenheimer response, except my aunt told my mom that Blake Griffin needs a pacifier, to keep that mouthpiece where it belongs. So Robert’s not the only one bothered.
Jim asked, “So now is the just still out, as you said before on Travis Ford? He is 100 percent better than Sean in coaching and 1000 percent better communicating to the press, students and athletes. I love his style of running full time!! Only problem I have is that I wonder what he sees is wrong with Obi? Hope he does not break the kid’s spirit.”
I would say the jury has come in. And I also hope Obi’s spirit isn’t broken, but I fear that it is.
Jyme wrote, “Seriously, , just go ahead and write your, ‘Fire Travis Ford’ column. You know you want to. You had to take it easy with your negative spin when he was first hired, but now that he had his cussing moment, the gloves are off as far as you’re concerned. It couldn’t have worked out better for you I’m sure. I certainly don’t remember seeing you write this crap when Kelvin Sampson was at OU, or pre Bob Stoops era.”
Do you people have no idea how bad the Poor Aggie act looks? It makes you look pathetic. I have criticized every coach I’ve ever heard call one of their players a f****** idiot. And as for popping the OU football program pre-Stoops, you’ve got to be kidding. Ask John Blake or Howard Schnellenberger how easy I took it on them.
