Thanks for stopping by – here’s your daily dose of Oklahoma State sports news.

East Carolina transfer Javon Small has major juice. Small has been a dynamic, net-shredder who can create off the bounce. Small is always drawing a second defender with his quick first step, and his drives have been so important in collapsing opposing defenses. He eviscerated Notre Dame for 29 points. He filled up the box score with 24 points, five rebounds and four assists in Oklahoma State’s loss to Creighton on Thursday.

One thought on the NCAA’s proposal for NIL: despite the challenges it presents in its current form, at least NIL is truly free enterprise. The NCAA’s proposal would require 50% of NIL trust fund dollars be spent on female athletes. This is demanding equity where there is nothing close to equity that exists.

Yea not sure the NCAA is doing this out of the kindness of their heart. There is a thing called Title IX that is driving that.

Yes, understand Title IX.

Basically, I’m not real certain what the NCAA proposal actually brings to the table that isn’t already being offered – only as a meritocracy rather than a mandate.
