Daily Bullets (Mar. 17): Blake Jarwin Got Paid, A Boynton Transfer Target



Get your March Madness fix – see how SportsLine projection simulated the Big Dance.

Bullets Rundown

• Blake Jarwin got the big contract
• Possible Boynton transfer target
• Chuba – the best that wasn’t supposed to be?

OSU Bullets

• The big news yesterday was former Cowboy Back Blake Jarwin getting paid in Dallas.

Jarwin, a former Cowboy back at Oklahoma State, is signing a three-year extension with Dallas worth up to $24.25 million with $9.25 million guaranteed, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport. Not bad for a guy who started his collegiate career as a walk-on. [PFB]


Also noted was a cool gesture, Jarwin simultaneously announced a donation back to OSU.

• I like the idea of Mike Boynton going after guys like this – the kind of guy you could build an offense around after Cade Cunningham goes pro. Kyle Boone also notes that OSU offered him coming out of high school in Georgia.

• ESPN noted Chuba Hubbard as one of the best players in CFB that wasn’t a “top recruit”.

Hubbard signed with Oklahoma State out of Canada as a 6-foot-1, 190-pound upright runner with track speed, and he has developed into one of the most productive backs in college football.

Now nearing 210 pounds with a much stronger frame and just as much explosiveness, the Class of 2017 four-star prospect eclipsed the 2,000-yard mark as a redshirt sophomore in 2019 after putting up nearly 1,300 all-purpose yards in 2018. [ESPN $$$]

• This site has Justin Blackmon as one of the biggest Big 12 draft flops – a tough call. The Jaguars didn’t get but 20 games out of him (over two seasons) but he showed plenty of capability with 64 yards a game and a touchdown every three games.

• I appreciated this explanation for why the NCAA won’t be releasing a bracket (as much of a bummer as it is):

“Players and coaches want to see their school name on the bracket,” Gavitt said. “Members of the media want to dissect matchups. Bracketologists want to compare the work of the committees versus what they’ve predicted. Fans are curious for those same reasons. All of us want something to fill the void we’re feeling.

However, anything less than a credible process is inconsistent with the tradition of the NCAA basketball championships. Brackets based on hypotheticals can’t substitute for a complete selection, seeding and bracketing process.  [CBS Sports]

• Goodness, September could be the most loaded sports month ever – the Kentucky Derby has been moved to September.
