The weekend is almost here. Mike Gundy and players meet with the media Thursday afternoon, but here is some OSU news to hold you over.

Three thoughts

1. Jenkins’ back issues require surgery: Some bad news broke out of Bears camp Wednesday morning: former OSU offensive lineman Tevin Jenkins will have surgery on his injured back. Per Bears’ coach Matt Nagy, these back issues are different than the ones that bothered him in Stillwater.

2. OSU hoops takes over the Colvin: The Oklahoma State basketball team made its way over to the Colvin on Wednesday evening and nearly tore the place down. Here is Isaac Likekele (donning a neon green ski mask) throwing an alley-oop off the glass to Matthew-Alexander Moncrieffe.

3. Hoops recruiting updates: Speaking of the Cowboy basketball team, OSU extended an offer Wednesday to 2023 prospect Isaiah Manning, who plays at the same high school as 2022 commit Quion Williams. Later on Wednesday, Boynton and Co. also made the cut for 2022 prospect Ryan Dunn.

Two Quotes

Transfer center Danny Godlevske has garnered nothing but praise from spring practices and into fall camp, and he enters his new home with a chip on his shoulder (via Scott Wright, The Oklahoman).

“From spring ball, you saw that he had a work ethic like no other,” starting left guard Josh Sills said. “Coming from Miami of Ohio, not being at a Power 5 school, I’ve heard him mention it to me quite a few times that he feels like he needs to prove himself.”

The Cowgirl soccer season starts Thursday night. The Cowgirls return four fifth-year players, and coach Colin Carmichael said that experience is what is going to have to take OSU back to the NCAA Tournament.

“Yeah, we expect some of those newcomers to help us,” Carmichael said, “but I think it’s fair to say that the success or failure of this season will probably largely be on the shoulders of that returning group.”

One Question

Who are five players from OSU basketball history you’d like to see team up and run through the poor souls at the Colvin? The more dunkers the better. Give me Markel Brown, James Anderson, Desmond Mason, Cade Cunningham and Bryant Reeves.

Non-OSU Bullets
  • The NCAA is investigating the Nebraska football program after a report came out the Cornhuskers were improperly using analysts and moved workouts off campus during the pandemic when they weren’t allowed to.
  • Kevin Durant made more mention of his departure from OKC in a sit-down interview with former Warriors teammate Draymond Green. It’s infuriating Durant keeps getting asked about his move away from the Thunder, but overall, this is an interesting sit down from a pair that didn’t always get along (be aware of language).
  • Disney is opening a Star Wars-themed hotel next spring. Good news: It sounds awesome — a fully immersive Star Wars experience. Bad news: Two-night packages start at $4,809 ?.
