The Anniversary of Reign Cane Sports

Hello readers of RCS! Today is April 15th, which marks exactly one year since I officially launched www.reigncanesports.com. I want to take this time to document our journey so far, and talk about our goals going forward; but most importantly to offer a sincere thank you to everyone who has visited our site.

The way I came up with Reign Cane Sports is a pretty amusing story. One day while listening to my differential equations teacher drone on about Laplace Transforms, I began to doodle in my notebook. I knew I was going to move into an apartment the following year, so I had been thinking of a Tulsa-themed design that I could put on my living room table, figured it would be a cool summer project. When thinking for inspirations for designs, I thought of one that I’ve always admired. I am a huge golf fan, so after seeing the Masters logo hundreds of times the previous week, I tried to see if I could recreate it with the Tulsa flag and the state of Oklahoma.

After drawing the design, I showed my girlfriend (whom was actually trying to pay attention in class). She said she liked it, saying that TU should make something like that a logo for their athletics. I am sure that she was just pandering, but her telling me this is what caused me to think about another application for this logo. Instead of a design for a coffee table, maybe I could use it as a logo for a sports blog…

Join our Bowl Mania Group!

Tags : 

TU fans, we made a bowl group on ESPN for friends of Reign Cane Sports, join it by clicking the link here.

Don’t particularly have anything in mind for the champion, but I’m thinking that if we ever get around to making t-shirts the winner will be first in line.

Reign Cane!

Thunder vs Warriors Storylines

Tags : 

We all know the story. The OKC Thunder looked poised for an NBA championship. After defeating a tremendous Spurs team in 6 games, the Thunder looked in control of the Western Conference Finals as they had a 3-1 lead on the Golden State Warriors. But ultimately, as the result of poor shooting and late-game management on the Thunders part as well as some ridiculous shooting by Klay Thompson in game 6, the Thunder fell in 7 games.

A Reminder to Take It Easy

As I sit here typing this, I have no idea where I want this article to go. And perhaps that is something that points to a bigger idea.

 

I am a college student. I had to look up how to close window blinds on YouTube because I couldn’t get my apartment blinds closed. I am absolutely still trying to learn how to be a functional member of American society. I don’t think I’m doing a particularly bad job of it thus far, but I will also openly admit that I have made, do make, and will continue to make mistakes.

The (Sports) Drought of Summer

Tags : 

As “The ‘Land” celebrated, I was reduced to a solemn, pensive mood: the NBA season is over. As confetti rained down in Oracle Arena, metaphorical tears rained down my face. We, as a collective nation, were now confined to the Baseball Prison™.

2016 Reign Cane Sports Fan Survey

This idea was inspired by @okc_dave on Twitter, as he does a survey like this for Oklahoma State every year.

I made a survey designed to help get a sense of Tulsa fans before the 2016-2017 athletic calendar begins. It is composed of questions that allow you to give your opinion about certain aspects of Tulsa sports. For example, some of the questions include: How many games will the football team win this year? Will the basketball team make it to the NCAA tournament next season? Do you approve of the job Derrick Gragg has done as AD? Where is your favorite place to eat before a game?

Talking The Switch To Adidas With Tulsa’s Associate Director of Athletic Equipment, Greg Criser

Tags : 

Last week my friend and fellow Reign Cane writer Zac Jones reached out to me and asked if I’d like to do an interview with Tulsa’s Associate Director of Athletic Equipment. I immediately responded with yes; the proposition piqued my interest because I knew it would be a cool opportunity to learn more about the switch to Adidas, and allow me to nerd out about uniforms with someone who is involved in the business. We planned our interview with Mr. Greg Criser, and two days later Zac and I were walking into the Reynolds Center, prepping for our first interview for Reign Cane Sports.
