Pokes are putting their two-game win streak on the line tonight in Morgantown at 6pm (CST) – beat the ‘Neers. Bullets Rundown • Rutherford in today’s NBA • Why Randy is OSU’s best three-point shooter • Boynton on the resurgence OSU Bullets • Berry Tramel drew a fascinating conversation out of Big Country and Randy Rutherford about how much more valuable Rutherford would be professionally in today’s NBA. So let’s talk about it. Rutherford played three years at OSU, 1992-95. Rutherford averaged 13.3, 13.1 and 19.6 points a game in those three years, for a career average of 15.6. Rutherford’s 3-point shooting percentages were .437, .404 and .418, for a career percentage of .418. Today, a 41.8 percent 3-point shooter who shoots 9.4 treys a game (as Rutherford did as a senior), would be widely heralded. It wasn’t that celebrated 25 years ago. [NewsOK] Tramel gave Rutherford a Buddy Hield-comparison, undersized by sharpshooting shooting guard. I love it and couldn’t agree more. • While we’re talking about Randy Rutherford, he explained why he’s the best three-point shooter in school history regardless of who’s name is there in the record books (Keiton Page, Phil Forte): Someone started a question to Rutherford…

I see Randy at a gym in Owasso, have talked to him a few times. He’s currently head coach at McLain and I’m sure would love to get a college coaching gig. Best wishes to him on that. I saw a few games, wish I could’ve seen him play more but lived overseas at the time.

Does anyone get the Les Miles feeling with the Coach Tucker situation?
