On Monday morning, Oklahoma State freshman guard Stevie Clark was dismissed from the basketball team by coach Travis Ford. The decision was met with immediate local and national reactions:
Dismissal of Oklahoma State freshman G Stevie Clark from the team is sad waste of an opportunity. But he’d been given several chances.

Stevie Clark essentially dismissed himself. You can’t repeat bad decisions and get benefit of doubt from coaches who want you to do right.

So with the dismissal of Stevie Clark, Oklahoma State will either have a six-man rotation or a very-rarely used seventh man tonight vs. ISU.

If Stevie Clark is not suspended by Ok State, someone needs to have a meeting asking why not? It’s that simple, or at least should be

Hate to c such a talent kicked off team but Stevie Clark gave #OkState no choice. He has bigger prob now than finding new team.

Really no other choice. RT @ahrens_tim Source confirmed to me Stevie Clark is indeed off the team, and that Ford told him he was done.
