Daily Bullets (July 25)



Happy at Home

Gundy expressed confidence last week that Oklahoma State will be his last (college) job.

During a 20-minute session in a hallway in the Ford Center’s bowels, Gundy was asked directly whether he was willing to say he would never coach anywhere but Oklahoma State.

“I would think that’s true,” Gundy said. “Never’s a long time. At some point, you may be the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. But I foresee being at Oklahoma State for a long time and finishing certainly my college career at Oklahoma State.” [TulsaWorld]

The odds of Gundy-to-Jerry World probably aren’t very high but he did intentionally leave that door open. Could you see Gundy pulling a Pat Jones and position coaching in the league someday?

Backup Battle

Pre-freshman running backs arriving, a surprise candidate has the edge at snaps behind Justice Hill.

Just had this conversation with Coach Gundy on the flight back from Bristol. Today, it’s Ja’Ron Wilson, a redshirt freshman from Euless, Texas, who showed some toughness in the spring. Watch out for incoming freshmen JD King and Chuba Hubbard, who get their chance to impress when camp opens. Should be one of the better position battles. [NewsOK]

Wilson, a (former?) walk-on from a talent rich program in Texas that had Power 5 offers sounds like a viable solution to me.

OSU and NCAA Notes

Good stuff memorializing Tyrek Coger, a Poke gone too soon….College football’s five most interesting ends to a coaching tenure….Weeden still a backup in Houston pre-Deshaun Watson taking over….Ole Miss should let their players transfer

Fact: we’re probably running out of statistical things to say.

Throw it up and James is coming down with it.

If aliens wanted to know what a football player was, Shawn Willis would be the easiest person to point to.

Skipping out on season two of Last Chance U is irrational, right?
