Daily Bullets (Feb. 7): OSU Turning Down Free Press, Peel’s Serious Numbers



We’ll see how the class ages but the 2020 football class won’t go down as a touted one

• OSU turning down the free press
• Blue-chip ratios
• Peel’s serious, Thorpe-worthy numbers

• Not to be too “high and mighty” but something to be proud of Oklahoma State about is how they haven’t hooked their wagon to the Tyreek Hill train.

From OSU, there was no acknowledgement of Hill’s nine-catch, 105-yard stat line for the Chiefs — or of his 44-yard reception that triggered KC’s rally from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit.

Oklahoma State would love to use Hill’s Bedlam punt return in social-media video or pregame video at Boone Pickens Stadium. Oklahoma State would love to include several Hill images in its football guides. [TulsaWorld]

• In a piece looking at recruiting in the Big 12 over the last decade, this line about blue chips was spot on.

Blue chips are essentially the obvious talents that everyone agrees are good prospects. You can end up with a very talented team without recruiting them but it’s obviously harder because the consensus regarding which players are most talented is going to end up being right more often than not.  [Concerning Sports]

I’ll agree with that point and raise it a notch – if you have too high of a concentration of blue chips with solid coaching, it’s nearly impossible for a team without it to beat you.

These numbers are staggering – had no idea Kolby Harvell-Peel was that productive in 2019.

• Dream team: Doug Gottlieb at the point, D-Mase slashing, Phil Forte and Keiton Page stroking?

• Rediscovering the lost art of reading aloud
• The Black Wall Street massacre in Tulsa 
• Written in view of Wednesday night, good thoughts on how to view the Thunder potentially moving Gallinari (they didn’t)

These are always great – and they’ll only get better with election season.
