Three Thoughts

Braylin Presley is headed to the University of Tulsa – godspeed Cowboy. As this media member pointed out, TU is almost shaping up to be a bit of a farm club for the Pokes.

Folks may hate the portal but the Cowboys sure have their place in it (above some and below others).

Preview of the Guaranteed Rate Bowl – it’ll be nice to have something like a Cowboy bowl game to get you through that post-Christmas slump

Reports continue to tumble out that an early OU/Texas exit is looming while a new wrinkle emerged yesterday: making FOX and the Big 12 whole by OU and Texas playing games in Big 12 stadiums after they leave. Mike Gundy had said no but others are speculating this could continue Bedlam.

“They would have to play games in the [Big 12] footprint so Fox and ESPN can have value,” an industry source told CBS Sports. “If ESPN and Fox are happy, [the Big 12] would be happy.” 

That could potentially lead to the continuation of the Bedlam series between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State that was expected to end when OU joined the SEC in 2025.

When those games would be played or how many would be scheduled is not yet known.

Non-OSU Bullets

What an incredible staff Mike Leach had in Lubbock:

“Deconstruct the cool things you see.

If you’d like to become a better musician and you see an amazing performance, start paying attention to how they do it. How did they promote the event? What happens in the first ten seconds of each song? How frequently are they engaging directly with the audience? Is there a progression of energy throughout the show?

When something fascinates you, pay attention to the details. The person who thinks, “That was cool” is a consumer. The person who thinks, “How did they make something that cool?” is on the path to being a creator.

Don’t just taste the recipe, look for the ingredients.”
