Daily Bullets (Dec. 22): Cowboys’ Woes Continue Without Isaac Likekele



The Cowboys got smoked in Tulsa on Saturday night and have just one more game before Big 12 play starts. Let’s hope they get Isaac Likekele back soon.

OSU Bullets

• Rashaun to OSU?: Bill Haisten puts forth a couple of candidates to fill Kasey Dunn’s vacated position at Oklahoma State.

A 2004 NFL first-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers, Woods was an assistant coach at Oklahoma City’s Millwood High School (his alma mater) and Star Spencer. In 2013-19, he was the head coach at OKC John Marshall. This year, he became the head man at Enid. [Tulsa World]

I don’t hate the idea and it’s almost obvious enough to work. We know Rashaun can coach due to his success at the high school level, and we know he knows the position, but can he recruit receivers at the level of Dunn? Can anyone?

• Chuba is honored in Edmonton.

• The Cowboys are in Houston, prepping for this week’s bowl matchup with A&M.

• Former Cowboys DC Glenn Spencer earned his first win as a DI head coach. Unfortunately, he won’t be retained with Willie Taggart taking the FAU job after being ousted by Florida State. But it’s good to see him have his moment.

• Former OSU hooper Codey McElroy got another NFL shot, this time with the Buccaneers, and saw the field for the first time on Saturday. And he made the most of it.

Two days after being promoted from Tampa Bay’s practice squad, McElroy caught his one target for 30 yards.


Non-OSU Bullets

• Berry Tramel previewing the Chris Peterson Bowl was great.
An all-too-familiar story in the industry of sportswriting.
“If your narration isn’t helping you, perhaps it pays to focus on something else.”

Offline reading: I recently picked up the classic management guide How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie. It’s a fantastic read that I would recommend for anyone but I thought I’d share this passage that I keep coming back to.

Criticism is futile because it puts a person on the defensive and usually makes him strive to justify himself. Criticism is dangerous, because it wounds a person’s precious pride, hurts his sense of importance, and arouses resentment. …. Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain—and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.
