Bullets Rundown

• Gundy’s plan to cut back on fake injuries
• An amazing aspect of Eddie’s career
• What 130 athletic directors are considering for football season

OSU Bullets

Mike Gundy has a solution for one of college football’s most obnoxious crimes: faking injuries to slow down opponents.

(Gundy) even feels he has a fair solution: If a player goes down with an injury, he should be out the remainder of the possession. And, in the spirit of bipartisanship, he’s even willing to extend the rule to offensive players as well, despite the fact that it’s almost exclusively a defensive phenomenon. [ESPN]

A buddy pointed out what we all thought when reading the piece – Texas and OU are the worst at this. Gundy builds on his concept in the article, definitely worth your time.

• This nugget was buried in the press release for Eddie Sutton’s Hall of Fame announcement.

One losing season in 37 years!

• Brett McMurphy breaks down the possibilities athletic directors are considering for football season – he caught up with all 130 FBC ADs.

• Basketball recruiting nuggets: OSU made the top-three on Donovan Williams and are kicking the tires on a 7’3″ Big Ten-grad transfer

• That 41-point-win sure was nice.

• This is kind of wild – Power Five conferences get to decide on their season, not the NCAA

Dez Bryant isn’t giving up on playing for the Dallas Cowboys again

Non-OSU Bullets

• Liked this piece on “taking the long view” in today’s environment
• Finished my third lap through this Christian book on community – so good. You can get it for <$5 (e-version), really good.
• Berry Tramel being furloughed stinks
• I’m cool with the 76ers getting the Thunder’s pick this year

A pre-Thanksgiving tradition unlike any other.
