Marcus Smart calls out Oklahoma State blogger during loss to Baylor

Marcus-SmartOklahoma State deserves plenty of criticism for its current stretch of play. The Cowboys have lost seven straight games and are now 4-19 in the Big 12 after losing to Baylor. Marcus Smart is currently serving a three-game suspension for shoving a Texas Tech fan, but that doesn’t mean is going to sit quietly while people say unkind things about his teammates.

Smart called out Kyle Porter, the guy who runs the popular Oklahoma State blog Pistols Firing, during Monday night’s loss to Baylor. Porter sent a number of negative tweets about the team. Here are a few.

Smart, who was serving the third and final game of his suspension, told Porter to stop watching the team if he only has negative things to say.

Oklahoma State PG Stevie Clark kicked off team after allegedly peeing out car window

Stevie-Clark-Oklahoma-StateOklahoma State point guard Stevie Clark was dismissed from the team on Monday following his second arrest in roughly a month. On Jan. 1, Clark was found to be in possession of marijuana after a traffic stop for a seat belt violation. On Sunday morning, he was allegedly found peeing out of a car window.

Police reportedly spotted Clark at roughly 12:30 a.m. on Sunday urinating out of a moving vehicle that was being driven by someone else. He was arrested and released from jail a few hours later after posting bond. Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford told the Tulsa World in a statement on Monday that Clark is no longer with the team.

“We care about Stevie and wish nothing but the best for him,” Ford said. “We want him to find success in his future, wherever that may be.”

Clark, a 19-year-old freshman, was averaging 5.3 points and 2.7 assists per game in a backup role this season. He was suspended four games earlier this season for disciplinary reasons that may or may not have had to do with his marijuana possession arrest. If Clark could just pee in a bottle like a normal person, he might still be a Cowboy.
