Daily Bullets (Jan. 28): Mike Gundy’s Three Best Qualities



I keep telling myself while watching OSU Basketball – think about the future.

• Praise for Cowboy triplets
• 0-7 blues


• MBB: Kansas 65, Pokes 50

OSU Bullets

• Mike Gundy is one of the highest-paid coaches in the country – here are three big reasons why. 

…Gundy is notorious for not investing ultra deeply in recruiting but that man can do three things like few others.

  1. Evaluate
  2. Develop
  3. Retain

The 2017 Cowboys had a big hole at tackle where they needed guys that could ensure that Rudolph was upright while waiting for Ateman deep outs or Washington posts to develop and pounced on the opportunity to get Cochran, the massive Cal transfer.

For 2020 there wasn’t a glaring hole at tackle but the Cowboys do need to replace multi-year starters Johnny Wilson and Marcus Keyes at center and guard. To that end, they somehow secured All-B12 guard Josh Sills from West Virginia as a grad transfer… [Concerning Sports]

To his point, I love it when Gundy finds dudes like this. For every “four stars+ win titles” (absolutely true) there’s room for acknowledging how good he is at finding three stars that have won lots of games. Like this guy!

• Considering the above comments – it’s even more fun to enjoy reading things like this said about Oklahoma State Football (especially when offense has been a bit scarce on campus lately).

Oklahoma State returns arguably the nation’s top triple threat in (Chuba) Hubbard, (Tylan) Wallace and sophomore quarterback Spencer Sanders. [ESPN+ $$$]

The nation’s top triple threat – top could be pointing to how talented, productive, or capable they are and none of those would be wrong by that standard.

• 0-7 is disheartening and it’s starting to feel routine and expected. While this seems silly at first, it’s a great question – can OSU find two more wins and match it’s 12 win total from last year?

Something that’s particularly difficult is how they’re losing. Thinking back on past teams (06′-07′ comes to mind) with talent but for some reason, they checked out (looking at you, Marist in the NIT). But this squad gives off every feeling of trying, they’re just struggling terribly on the offensive end. It’s a tough one.

• 100/1 national title odds for the Pokes – seems like they should be a little closer. I like the 80/1 with Wisconsin.

• Dez has a list of favorite teams he’d like to play for – at what point do we assume he’s done?

• Really cool move from Chuba over the weekend – really admirable when these guys use their platform in this way.

Non-OSU Bullets

• Why there won’t be another Kobe
• The last Germans to surrender in WWII
• Pretty deep faith-based pointers on marriage

This Kobe/MJ mashup is crazy:
