    A Division 1 openly gay married athlete comes out in Oklahoma

    in LGBT

    With the Supreme Court set to debate gay marriage next week, we talk to Tanner Williams, a University of Oklahoma pole vaulter. This June, Tanner and his husband Scott celebrate their first anniversary. Tanner talks about how pole vaulting and his faith in God saved him in his homophobic town. His religion is important to him even as others use Christianity to keep gays down. We explore Tanner's story and the role of religion in the debate over gay rights.

    Why Kevin Ollie is perfect next coach for Oklahoma City Thunder

    in Basketball

    If Sam Presti does not hire a coach that Kevin Durant is happy with, chances are Durant will leave Oklahoma City as an unrestricted free agent in July, 2016. That is a fact. Kevin Durant likes Kevin Ollie. That is a fact, too. And Kevin Ollie is Presti's No. 1 choice for the job. That fact was first reported by respected colleague Adam Zagoria, and it is 100 percent on the money.


    So what to make of Ollie's statement today, tactfully written in the present tense, that he has "no plans" to leave UConn? 


    Well, put it this way. I have no plans to marry Taylor Swift. But if circumstances led to that being a possibility ... 


    As for the other two names that are out there, Billy Donovan and Fred Hoiberg, fans of the Thunder should ask themselves this: "Do either of those guys have a strong relationship with Durant?" Because you can be damn sure that Durant is going to have some input on who OKC's next coach will be. That is why my money is on Ollie -- even if it doesn't happen until the middle of the summer. I explain more in this interview on Erik Gee and Kelly Gregg on 107.7 The Franchise in Oklahoma City.

    Today was the last day for oral arguments before the Supreme Court for 2014 2015 term.
    Oklahoma’s hasty, non-science-driven process for selecting midazolam as the first drug in its three-drug protocol did not cohere with its solemn duty to ensure its punishments are lawful,” a brief signed by OCU President Robert Henry (Glossip v. Gross)Suppose that we said we’re going to burn you at the stake, but before we do, we’re going to use an anesthetic of completely unknown properties and unknown effects,” said Justice Kagan
