    Anyone know about this paper? How much do they cover oklahoma state? Good staff?
  2. It looks like they cover Oklahoma Baptist, mostly. If they cover the Big 12, I think Shawnee is geographically closer to OU than OK State, it's about 30 miles east of Oklahoma City. All I could find on their website was one series between the rivals at OKC this weekend. Other than that, it was mostly Oklahoma Baptist.

    Met Fred Fehr a few times when I was in southern Oklahoma about a decade ago. Good people.

    Would've been a pretty fun job a couple of years ago when that Tucker Brown mess went down.
  5. Yes. That was a mess.
    I know very little about the paper, but in my limited dealings with Fred Fehr, he's seemed like a really good guy.
