For Michael Cobbins and his parents, it’s been a five-year journey known as much for rehabs as rebounds, with the Oklahoma State forward fending off various ailments — a toe one time, a dislocated shoulder another, then an Achilles tear that robbed him of the second half of last season.

Tramel: Another epic collapse for OU basketball

A lead of more than 20 points on the Big 12 road. In the second half. A classic example of over exuberance. Wilting down the stretch. Flying home with a debilitating defeat. Tell me where you’ve seen this before.
