“When we talk about the Oklahoma game, I am always going to look back and know I didn’t give my best,” junior guard Mason Walters said after the Baylor game. “They had a good front, and they outplayed us, but I am really encouraged about how we played tonight.”

In a move that you rarely see, Stoops took the chance to kick Kansas while they were down by commenting on how "boring" the game was from his perspective.
"Overall, it was a pretty business-like four quarters for us. They didn't come in and do a whole lot," Stoops said. "We just played. It got a little boring, but we just played our base defense most of the night and just played ball."

The NCAA and the NFL are tax-exempt organizations. [Legal Blitz]
Just a few days later the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Jay Bookman posted a blog entry in which he is seemingly flabbergasted that the NFL can hold more than $1 billion in assets and pay its executives eight-figure salaries and still avoid taxes.

So why isn’t the federal government taxing them?
