Three Thoughts

• The NCAA has cleared players for voluntary workouts this summer while the Big 12 (and SEC) has decided to let football players head back to campus in June. We’re headed towards an on-time departure from the off-season, right? 

According to a release from the conference, football players will be allowed back on site June 15 and will be able to access schools’ athletic facilities and training personnel for offseason training and conditioning.

The phased-in timeline will allow volleyball, soccer and cross-country student-athletes to return to campus and activities July 1. Remaining sports can reconvene July 15. [PFB]

Mark your calendar – on Sunday, Quentin Moore, Mark Moore’s son, the tenth-best Juco product in the country is making his decision.

Moore, the son of two-time Oklahoma State All-American Mark Moore, announced via Twitter that he will choose a school Sunday. The younger Moore is a 6-foot-6 tight end at Independence Community College in Kansas. On April 8, he cut his list of schools to 15 and included OSU. [PFB]

• OSU wished T. Boone Pickens a happy birthday – it’s sad to know he’s not still here.

Two Quotes

• News surfaced yesterday that the Seattle Seahawks signed another talented running back yesterday (Carlos Hyde) who rushed for 1,000+ yards in 2019 – what does that mean for Chris Carson’s status as the workhorse?

While Carson will likely be the team’s go-to back for the third season in a row, Hyde is more than capable of making an impact next year. [710 ESPN Seattle]

• The Texas governor believes there will be folks in the stands for college football games:

“Once we get to college football season, our goal right now is to have college football season start as planned, with fans in stands,” the Republican told Austin television station KXAN. “What we don’t know is what the capacity level would be.” [NewsOK]

For better or worse (depending on your opinion), it sounds like the question is less “if” and more “how” college football would take place. 

One Question

• Will we ever see OSU and OU simultaneously involved in conference entry/exit shenanigans again like we did in the 1920’s?
