    Honda Classic suspended, McIlroy misses cut Patrick Reed, who recovered from a double bogey early in his round by playing bogey-free the rest of the way in the Honda Classic for another 67, was the clubhouse leader at 6-under 134. None of the late starters had enough light to play more than 12 holes before the second round was suspended by darkness. Rory McIlroy missed the cut. McIlroy made only one birdie in the rain at PGA National, and three bogeys on his last four holes led to a 4-over 74. The cut officially will not be made until Saturday because of a rain delay of nearly four hours, though that was a formality.

    Updated: 12 hr ago

    STILLWATER — Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy has been allowed little rest since the Cowboys capped the 2014 season with a Cactus Bowl victory against Washington. He can thank another offseason marked by an assistant coaching carousel for that. A quick refresher for how it all went down. Cornerbacks coach Van Malone accepted the defensive coordinator position at SMU. He was replaced by former Houston running backs coach Dan Hammerschmidt. Offensive line coach Bob Connelly took the same job at USC.

  • Examining the roles of Clay and Wyatt as program analysts

    By Kyle Fredrickson | Updated: 12 hr ago

    STILLWATER — When news dropped late Thursday that the Oklahoma State football team added five new staff members, two names certainly caught the attention of longtime followers of the program. Bill Clay and Darrell Wyatt. Both former Cowboy assistant coaches are back. Clay — OSU's defensive coordinator from 2001-04 — and Wyatt — OSU's passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach in 2001 — will serve as team “analysts.” That title means Clay and Wyatt cannot have hands-on coaching roles with players or be part of any off-campus recruiting, a team spokesman said.

  • Unfinished business

    By Trent Shadid | Published: Sat, Feb 28, 2015

    As Chandler's Heath Gray stood up to celebrate picking up a pin in the state semifinals, he suddenly realized he had unfinished business. Gray then looked to his coach, stuck up his right index finger and said, “One more match,” immediately shifting his focus to his championship match on Saturday night at 160 pounds in Class 3A. The senior improved to 36-0 with the win and is considered among the most talented wrestlers in Class 3A. But that's the exact same position he found himself in a season ago heading into Saturday at the state tournament. He was 37-0 as a junior before suffering his only loss of the season in the finals at 170 pounds.
