SportsNation Blog Archives Oklahoma State Cowboys
The Oklahoma State men's hoops team sat back and watched as Kentucky, Duke and other schools dropped pretty glamorous preseason hype videos.
Then the Cowboys turned up in a different way: by letting their coach be the star.
Travis Ford and his squad -- with a cameo from who we guess are cheerleaders and other members of the student body -- just dropped the mic on other hype videos with this great spoof of Macklemore's "Downtown" video:
Cowboys Recreate Downtown For Homecoming & Hoops
What did you miss at Friday's Homecoming & Hoops? Just the Cowboys recreating Macklemore's Downtown music video on the OSU campus and a live dance routine from coach Travis Ford. #okstatehcPosted by Oklahoma State Cowboy Basketball on Saturday, October 24, 2015
From the campus to the gym, Ford's performance delivers as he steals the show.
No word yet from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on Ford and the Cowboys' performance, but we think you'll be entertained.
Marcus Smart to NBA draft
Marcus Smart's tumultuous NCAA career is over. As expected, the Oklahoma State sophomore point guard will enter the 2014 NBA draft, taking his immense talent -- and fiery attitude -- to the next level. Smart entered the year as one of the five highest-rated prospects, but saw his stock slip a bit in the face of a late-season suspension and occasional shooting struggles. He's still ranked No. 8 in Chad Ford's Top 100, though, and an almost-certain top-10 pick. What does the future hold for Smart?

What kind of sports fan are you?
Oklahoma State sophomore standout Marcus Smart has learned he will sit three games for shoving Texas Tech superfan Jeff Orr for what he thought was a racial slur, but turned out to be the more pedestrian but still ugly ''you're a piece of crap.'' We asked you earlier about the punishment Smart is facing and how much it will hurt his future. Now we want to turn the tables, SportsNation, and find out how you view yourself and whether you've done anything that could have resulted in a player getting physical.
Smart suspended three games
Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart shoved a Texas Tech fan after the two exchanged words late in Saturday night's game, and on Sunday the star guard was suspended three games for his actions. It's unclear what the fan said to Smart; the player claimed it was a racial slur, while the fan, Jeff Orr, denies that (Smart later apologized and took "full responsibility" for his actions). All of this came on the same night an Oregon coach says he was spit on by an Arizona State fan Saturday. Was Smart's punishment fair? Do fans take things too far?
