Daily Bullets (Jan. 9): Chuba Staying or Going, Brennan Presley Looks Great

Published

Is it sad that when Baylor loses their coach, this is the first place my mind goes?


Bullets Rundown

• Chuba thoughts (as of 1/9/20, early morning)
• Brennan Presley – underrated recruit
• Smoothing out the offense

Scores

OSU Bullets

• This is probably the right place to leave the Chuba Hubbard thoughts until he announces – assuming there are no more social media posts to analyze of course.

Stuff on social is nebulous, and if we’ve learned anything over the past few years it’s that player (and sometimes coaches) love to troll. That’s fine. It’s all in good fun. So maybe I’m taking one picture sent out at a specific time (right before the second semester is set to begin on Jan. 13) too seriously.

However, Chuba is a serious person, and I think the decision is set (complete conjecture). I could be wrong. Things could change. But I believe 30 is about to become Gundy’s biggest recruiting coup in years at some point over the next few days. [PFB]

The optimistic spin had to be included – but the tea leaves do seem to trend in a positive direction as unlikely as it all seemed a month ago.

• This 2020 football signee for the Pokes sounds like a serious player.

(Brennan) Presley finished (the state title game) with 16 catches for 119 yards and a touchdown along with nine rushes for 43 yards. He also had a 98-yard kick return touchdown.

To open the season, Presley caught six touchdowns in a 77-47 victory at Mansfield Timberview (Texas) before throttling Jenks 57-7 in Week 1, a game where he caught two touchdowns and had three interceptions. [NewsOK]

That’s serious production worth a second-take at a lower level player – but running up the score on Jenks (albeit, they’re not who they’ve been) is impressive. It’s hard to say he’s underrated when Mike Gundy is dropping comments like this on signing day.

• Here are some action steps for the Pokes to start putting up more points:

The team’s lack of ball movement when shots aren’t falling is something that has to be corrected, and quickly. They need to play to their strengths more — which is not the 3-ball — and at least one freshman has to step up. [CRFF]

I think Avery Anderson is in the process of turning into that reliable freshman scorer, we’ll call it the 04′-05′ James’on Curry award.

Smart wins at least one DPOY in his career right? Over/under should be set at 1.5.


Non-OSU Bullets

• Cool story about how a softball player climbed to the Yankees
• Tramel’s right – the Westbrook/CP3 trade has been a big win for the Thunder
• Some faith-based angles but this article on persevering through awkwardness for community is great for everyone
