It started back in early March, when the Manhattan College head men’s basketball coach led the Jaspers to a berth in the NCAA tournament, where they almost upended the highly regarded Louisville Cardinals. On the backs of that, Masiello was offered the head coaching spot at the University of South Florida, a step into the big leagues for the high rising 36-year-old.

Sounds a lot like a Tom Wolfe novel, right? Only this story isn’t fiction. This is a story about Oklahoma State football in the decade staring in the late 1990’s, where the marginal football program evolved into a national power that finished consistently in the nation’s top ten. The story is pure non-fiction, in fact, at least as reported by Sports Illustrated over the past several days, after a year of in-depth reporting and interviews with dozens of formers players and coaches and program associates, of which there seem to be way too many. Oklahoma State has already done its best to debunk SI’s reporting as myth, which will be about a simple as disproving the moon landing. Even if reporters overstepped here and there, the narrative is fairly indestructible.

The powerhouse New York Yankees, depicted on the cover of the New Yorker as geriatric patients, lost to the rival Boston Red Sox. But, the New York Mets won their opening salvo with a commanding 11 to 2 runs scored over the San Diego Padres.</p> Tue, 02 Apr 2013 19:00:00 +0000 61262 at http://wamc.org Vox Pop : Sports with Keith Strudler : 4/2/13 Congressional Corner with Rich Clark - Part 1 http://wamc.org/post/congressional-corner-rich-clark-part-1-0 <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>The NCAA Tournament has captured the nation’s attention in recent days.</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">In today’s Congressional Corner, Rich Clark, Associate Professor of Political Science and director of the </span>Castleton<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Polling Institute, tells </span>WAMC’s<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> David </span>Guistina<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> that sports and politics sometimes intersect.</span></p><p> Tue, 26 Mar 2013 14:50:00 +0000 David Guistina 60707 at http://wamc.org
