Daily Bullets (June 22): OSU’s Place in the Pecking Order, Underrated Ollie



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

Three Thoughts

• This chart ranking best teams in college football leagues is great – hard to argue with OSU being the No. 2 team in the new Big 12 (X)

• The end result is College World Series teams but adding players like this catcher from NC State is a significant part of Kenny Gajewski’s process (Substack)

• It’s unbelievable how underrated Ollie Gordon is. 

And (Ollie Gordon is) still college football’s best-kept secret; according to Las Vegas oddsmakers, that is. 

In the most recent run of Heisman Trophy futures, Gordon was tagged with +15000 odds to take home the sport’s top individual award. That put him 53rd on the list of eligible athletes, alongside the likes of Nebraska true freshman quarterback Dylan Raiola and Ohio State’s Julian Sayin, who’s expected to back up starting signal caller Will Howard in his first year with the Buckeyes.

Two Quotes

• Can anyone contest this? Highly doubtful. 

• Keep your eyes out for Oklahoma State to add a couple of more bigs before the season starts.

“I definitely want to get two more bigs — whether they’re forwards or centers or a combination of both,” Lutz said. “You can’t go into the Big 12 with a lack of size and physicality because you’ve gotta be able to rebound the basketball in this league. So, for sure two of those…”

One Question

• NBA Draft is next week – if you could draft a high-level talent to the Cowboy Basketball or Football teams, what would you add? 

Here’s my take – Cowboy Basketball needs a player like Jawun Evans to run the offense.
The answer for football would have to be a quarterback. But after that, the answer would be an elite defensive lineman. An Emmanuel Ogbah type.   

Non-OSU Bullets

• Couldn’t agree more that OKC gets an A for the Caruso trade

What a skill to receive feedback well.
