Three Thoughts

• The run Kenny Gajewski has the Cowgirls on is pretty unbelievable – hard to believe he’ll start the year off with two aces returning in the circle:

Way back in February, OSU’s Kelly Maxwell had announced her intentions to stick with the Cowgirls through 2024, and with those two in the circle, go ahead and pencil in OSU as a top-10 team next spring.


• HCS has OSU at Arizona State as their No. 10 game of the nonconference schedulesome intrigue about the unknowns that both teams are

• The Big Ten’s ‘flex protect plus’ scheduling model is pretty innovative – if the Big 12 went to 16+ teams, who would you want OSU to go into that with? A protected rival would be Texas Tech or Kansas State with rotations involving as many BYU and Texas teams as possible (BYU for visibility).

Two Quotes

• Had no idea Mason Rudolph was so high on the NCAA passing yardage list:

No. 12 on the NCAA’s career list, Mason Rudolph played in Stillwater from 2014 to 2017 with his yardage increasing each season.


• This is the good stuff – love thinking about the fun for this recruit after getting his OSU offer:

“There was a smile on my face the rest of the day,” Sanders told GoPokes247. “It means a lot, especially because of how hard my mom worked for me to get to where I am now. I don’t know how to put it into words.”

One Question

• If you could pick one team for OSU to play every year in football, who would it be?

Non-OSU Bullets

• How teachers in all 50 states recover from burnout
This is so OKC Thunder – trading two picks over the next two years for one (hopefully with light protections) in 2029

Couldn’t agree more with old friend Kyle Porter on this concept.

“The myth is that there isn’t enough time. There is plenty of time. There isn’t enough focus with the time you have. You win by directing your attention toward better things.”
