Trouble in OSU basketball?

It’s not shaping up to be a good year for Oklahoma State sports. Just an hour after I saw that the Cowboys defense gave up 14 fourth-quarter points to Kansas State and lost 31-27, I read Sean Sutton dismissed Gary Flowers for violating team rules. (Flowers apparently likes the chronic.)

Flowers joins former forward Torre Johnson of the OSU castaways. Sutton would not comment on either dismissal other than to say “I like the guy. I wish him the best. It’s in the best interest of the program that we part ways…. Blah, blah, blah.”

Throw these two dismissals on top of Eddie Sutton’s drunken driving incident and you’ve got one troubled basketball team. I sure hope Sean can keep the team focused. But the cynic in me says we’ll just suck this year and our program will go down the tubes.

I hope I’m wrong.
