Daily Bullets (Mar. 28): The Search to Replace Boynton Continues, Wrestling Adds an All-American



Thanks for stopping by – here’s your daily dose of Oklahoma State sports news.
OSU Bullets
Cowboy Wrestling landing a commitment from a transfer that’s a two-time All-American yesterday (PFB) • Solid nuggets in here from GoPokes 247 Steve Lutz from Western Kentucky has interviewed, appears to be a finalist (247 Sports) • The Cowboy defense has significant potential for 2023, albeit an optimistic take for a unit that struggled to finish the season.
One year’s injuries and depth issues, however, can become another year’s depth. OSU ranks second in returning defensive production, returning 11 of 15 players with 250-plus snaps, plus initial 2023 starting safety Lyrik Rawls, who was injured after three games. Linebackers Nick Martin and Colin Oliver are shop-wreckers (combined: 33 TFLs, 12 sacks, two interceptions and five breakups on a bad defense), and they will be surrounded by juniors and seniors. Nardo, having moved up from the Division II coaching ranks last year, has his feet wet now as well. OSU is projected 20th overall in SP+, and that’s with a defense just outside the top 40. If the Cowboys rediscover their 2022 form on that side of the ball, they become Big 12 favorites. [ESPN $$$]
Coaching Search Takes/Updates:  Steve Alford is out – the search continues + Bob Huggins is stumping for the Louisville job (could OSU take a look?) (X) •  If Steve Lutz ends up being the guy, this is an encouraging tidbit:
Non-OSU Bullets
• Why not sell MLB teams to fans? • McDonald’s will (eventually) sell Krispy Kreme donuts… fantastic. • A tomb to bury doubt (faith-based)
