The Pokes deserve some respect.
Just when you thought your football team was starting to get some respect, Cowboy fans, the preseason football magazines hit newsstands.
Oklahoma State is picked to finish last in the Big 12 South in not one but two of the publications.
Dan Beebe is no Mike Silve.
Beebe wasn’t free from criticism in Tuberville’s interview. He cited the work Mike Slive and his predecessor Roy Kramer had done as commissioner of the SEC as good examples before questioning Beebe’s leadership.
"It starts with the commissioner," he said, "and I think Mike Slive has done a good job. Roy Kramer did a good job of building a base where everybody was on the same page. And that just has not happened here in the Big 12."
Boone Pickens may be getting impatient.
At 82, Pickens knows he's running out of time as well as patience. So that begs the question about the future of Pokes coach Mike Gundy.
