OSU Bullets

• Great news – OSU is starting a “diversity and inclusion council” and including athletes on the board

• I think this is a great point – entering the realm of politics for Mike Gundy could only be a net loss.

Either way, stepping into politics is not good business, no matter if you step right or left. If Gundy had endorsed Joe Biden and donned an MSNBC T-shirt, he’s not likely to have alienated his ballplayers. But a big piece of OSU’s fan base could have been offended. Oklahoma is Trump territory; OSU’s fan base is heavy with Trump supporters.

And Gundy shouldn’t be estranging his fan base any more than he estranges his team. Players can more immediately make trouble for a coach, but the fans can catch up quick. [NewsOK]

• Update on OSU’s spot in the recruitment of touted Texas running back Cam’ron Valdez looks like the Pokes are sitting in the No. 2 spot.

Mike Gundy and his staff have a history of landing dynamic big-play threats to plug into the Cowboys’ high-octane offense, and Valdez fits the bill perfectly. Running backs coach John Wozniak has been working hard to gain favor with Valdez for months, and Oklahoma State has a real shot here. [Rivals]

• Former four-star Cowboy wide receiver C.J. Moore found a landing spot – an Iowa juco

How former Cowboy football player Jamie Thompson is seeking to better lives during the coronavirus crisis and the racial riots

• 247 Sports has the Pokes as the Big 12’s most-overrated title contender

• Let me get my hands on a No. 2 cursive Cowboy jersey, why don’t ya.
