Daily Bullets (Jan. 20): Pokes Head to Manhattan, Business Decisions for Cowboy Basketball



Thanks for stopping by – here’s your daily dose of Oklahoma State sports news.

Three Thoughts

Mike Boynton and crew head to Manhattan for a game with the Wildcats – can the Cowboys get one in the win column? 

Cowboys are picked third in the Big 12 this spring – Cowboys could be headed for a fun season (X)

• Can’t argue with this logic – not letting go of Mike Boynton is about his buyout being between $6m-$7m. 

Frankly, football being king in Stillwater has made OSU much more stable during the recent upheaval of conference realignment. If basketball still ruled, there would’ve been a lot of sleepless nights in recent years.

I’m not saying basketball doesn’t matter at OSU. It just doesn’t matter nearly as much as football.

Keeping Mike Boynton is a business decision, not a basketball one.

Two Quotes

• Kind of interesting to see OSU’s incoming quarterback talking about how the stability of the Cowboys’ coaching staff played a part in his commitment. 

“It’s big having a lifetime contract. Also the assistant coaches being there for a while, just wanting to stay with him. That’s a big deal. Quarterback coach (Tim Rattay) was a big piece of my recruitment process and why I wanted to be coached by him because of his experience in the NFL.”
