Daily Bullets: Football is sneaking up on us

Marcus Smart’s debut, what Cobbins is up to, and the best wrestler you maybe haven’t heard of.




Ah yes, the football pieces have already started. Here are 10 guys who could have breakout seasons. I think I’m most intrigued by Flowers, Samples, and Jacobs. (NewsOK)

A 2015 recruit regurgitating something it doesn’t sound like Gundy would ever say: “They said I’m the No. 1 guy they want to come in and play. They said a chance at the spot will be there, all I have to do is come in and take it.” (NewsOK)

Parker Graham on John Harbaugh: He is a very player-oriented coach, a lot like Coach Gundy. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.” (Scout)

Jaylon Lane is OSU’s only recruit at the big Nike event in Oregon this week. Bama has 10. (247)

DGB to OU and he’s trying to play this year. Weeee! (NewsOK)

Joe Randle on being a good running back: “You are ripping it out of their chest. There is nothing better than just pounding the ball. That’s why I’m a running back. I could have went to college and played corner and probably been drafted in the first round. But I went and did it my way. That’s what it is all about, doing it your way, and I’m happy with the outcome that I got.” A first-round corner? (Catch It Kansas)

This playoff with OSU history is excellent. (Tulsa World)

Smart on his coaches during his first summer league game after he missed some shots: “You can still do you. Just play ball and have fun. Just go out there. And that’s what I did. I just decided to go play.” (Boston Globe)

Avery Bradley is still the best on-ball defender on the team, but Smart is really good off the ball. (Celtics Blog)

Smart on his best basketball moment: “I’d probably have to say my 39-point game against Memphis at home. As an athlete and competitor, it’s the ultimate feeling to have that type of game, in the type of environment that Oklahoma State had.” (NewsOK)

Cobbins on what he’s been doing to help his squad: I’ve been trying to point out things that can help them down the line. Right now, some people might be doing some things that won’t fly in games during the Big 12. So I’ve been pointing out little things like that to help them correct those little mistakes.” (Talequah Daily Press)


Cool story about the 97-year-old who wrestled at Oklahoma A&M. “He lost one match, and avenged it later. All the old-timers I talk to consider him – without exception – one of the top four or five wrestlers of all time.” (Coloradoan)
