Daily Bullets (Mar. 13): Boynton’s Plan for Extra Eligibility, Coronavirus Updates



Best explanation I’ve seen for the radical precautions being taken to spread Covid-19. 

Bullets Rundown

• Pokes + ____ have the best chance to survive if Big 12 failed
• Boynton’s plan for extra eligibility
• Gundy, Dunn talk Dunn’s new gig

OSU Bullets

• Still stuck on realignment – given OSU’s viewership numbers (read the piece if you haven’t), the Pokes and another Big 12 peer stand the best chance of survival if the league breaks up. 

You can tell from the numbers above that West Virginia and Oklahoma State are actually two of the stronger “also ran” programs of the Big 12. It’s a state of only 1.8 million people but it’s a fixture in Appalachia and a draw within that region.

Oklahoma State has a long history of being a part of big time football as a big public school so they not only have their own alumni base and local fans but they also are an exciting opponent for Texas and Oklahoma. [Concerning Sports]

• Love Mike Boynton’s take here on bonus eligibility:

• Solid piece where Mike Gundy and Kasey Dunn talk about it all finally working out

• …and some more solid comments here from Coach Boynton on the premature close:

• Look out Adarius Bowman, here comes Dru Brown

Russell Okung weighing in on the NFL’s labor negotiations

Coronavirus Updates

Big 12 cancelled their basketball tournaments
• NCAA cancelled the rest of the winter championships (Big Dance included) and their winter sports
• OSU moving to online classes
WWII couldn’t cancel the Big Dance but the coronavirus did

Non-OSU Bullets

• How the coronavirus could change sportwriting
• Chris Paul is killing it this year
• This is the narrative I’m on board with – social media isn’t evil but just isn’t the best use of time
