B2 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, January 17, 2013 Sports Coyle teammates Fidel Simpson (3) and Ryan Weathers (22) force a perimeter pass between two Garber players during Saturday night's championship finals of the Mulhall- Orlando Invitational Tournament. The Bluejackets rolled to a 53-42 win. Photo by Jessica Sumrall/Jess Sumrall Photography New defensive changes on OSU football staff It was an interesting week for Oklahoma State football with changes to the coaching staff and to the offensive backfield as well. Possibly the big news was the handling of defensive coordinator Bill Young's dismissal. Offi- cially it was reported by the university that Young would not return next season and that lineback- ers coach and co-defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer would assume the new duties. That can open to quite a bit of interpreta- tion. 'Jackets win M-O tournament MULHALL - Coyle's Bluejackets raced to a first quarter lead then never looked back enroute to a 53-42 win over Garber in the finals of the Mul- hall-Orlando Invitational Basketball Tournament Saturday night. Coyle led 13-8 at the end of the first quarter then held a 27-22 advantage at halftime. Garber would nip a portion of the deficit away with a 16-14 third quarter. CHS, however, surged in the fourth quarter for the win. Ryan Weathers led the Bluejackets in scoring with 18 points on six three-point goals. Tony Aska followed with 14. Coyle cruised to a 64- 50 win in semifinals action over a Wichita, Kan., home school team last Friday. A 20-15 halftime lead was held by the Bluejack- ets, which proved to be the deciding factor. Wichita held a narrow 35-24 second half advantage. Aska paced the Blue- jackets with 19 points. Eric Harris followed with 16, Fidel Simpson with 11, a and Brown chipped in 10. The Bluejackets opened the tournament with a 68- 36 thumping of Dover last Thursday. CHS overcame a slow The week began with a 69-31 home win over Dav- enport last Tuesday.

What solidified the opposi- tion were the performances against Oklahoma and Baylor where over 1,000 yard of total offense was given up. Many of those seemed to have. forgotten the solid efforts turned in to get the Cowboys back into the hunt for a possible conference championship too. The defense responded with one of its finest efforts of the season in the Heart of Dallas Bowl by essentially shutting down the Boilermakers. After that game Young seemed revitalized and welcomed the opportunity to return next season. It will be interesting to see how all this plays out with all the stories being circulated about his depar- ture. We wish him the best in his future endeavors. During the question-and- answer sessions following games, Young was always very cordial and looked directly at you while answering your question. You don't always see that from a coach. Then it was announced Sunday that Joe Bob Cle- ments was hired to become the new defensive line coach, which was the position that Young also had. Clements comes from Kansas State where he just completed his 11 th season at his alma mater. He most recently coached the defen- sive ends and served as the run game coordinator for the Wildcats, according to information from the OSU media relations office. It was also announced last week that junior run- ning back Joseph Randle would make himself avail- able for the NFL draft and not return for his senior season. That news was not very surprising with the suc- cess Randle had during his three-year career. He will finish his career as the eighth leading rusher in school history and had an opportunity to leap into the top five with another 1,000- yard season next year. He had 40 rushing touchdowns good enough for fourth best in history. But OSU fans shouldn't feel things have dropped off significantly. That will still leave fellow junior Jeremy Smith as the starter and Desmond Roland to get more carries too. We're sure there are others in the stable that will have their opportunities to shine as well. We'll get a pretty good See COWBOYS Page B4 "Now That's A Pizza Coupon!"
