Three Thoughts

• Good heavens, when you hear a defensive coordinator saying the things that Jim Knowles is saying, it’s hard not to be excited. 

“I think we are poised to really take the next step,” Knowles said. “The leadership is great. Everybody knows what they’re doing. They’re in the right places and playing fast.

“It’s been full speed ahead and I think we got a real chance to be good.” [NewsOK]

• Mike Gundy explains why their shouldn’t be as much weight on Chuba Hubbard’s shoulders this year.

“Anytime a guy gets a year of experience he should improve and I think that will happen with Spencer,” OSU coach Mike Gundy said. “We have a number of guys who can make plays. We’re fortunate that we have quite a few wideouts and we’ve got running backs.” [TulsaWorld]

Awesome move here by the NCAA to allow players to play without risking a whole year of eligibility during the pandemic. Now – isn’t that the most logical thing to do as well if you’re saying no championships would be handed out either?

Two Quotes

• We can minimize the importance of the Big 12’s decision to play football on college football as a whole but this Bob Bowlsby quote has to be the sentiment for universities across the country.

“Anytime anybody at any level has decided they weren’t going to play or that they were going to do something different, it affects us,” Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said. “I don’t know that we would want to be the only college football conference playing.” [NewsOK]

• Starting right tackle question appears to have an answer after the exit of Bryce Bray and the shifting over of Teven Jenkins to left tackle:

Lately, 6-foot-6, 318-pound redshirt sophomore Hunter Anthony, who saw spot duty at right guard last year, has taken over the right tackle job. [NewsOK]
