Daily Bullets (May 25): Cowgirls One Win from OKC, Bedlam for the Big 12 Title



Thanks for stopping by – here’s your daily dose of Oklahoma State sports news.


Softball: Cowgirls 8, Arizona 0
Men’s Golf: Pokes T-21st through Day One
Baseball: Cowboys 4, Tech 0 and Cowboys 10, UCF 1

Three Thoughts

• The Cowgirls skunked Arizona in the first game of the Super Regionals – the reload job Kenny Gajewski did is unbelievable (PFB)

• Cowboy linebacker Nick Martin made this list of the most underrated players in college football – it’s hard to believe one of the best tacklers won’t make it onto preseason All-American lists (247 Sports)

• Solid question – who wins ten games next year: OSU or OU? 

“I agree that Utah is a very good program,” Young said. “That’ll be a big challenge, but it seems like we’ve had this feeling for a while that OSU might be able to have the opportunity to assert themselves as the new kings of the Big 12 in a lot of sports, with OU and Texas leaving.

“Maybe they’ll be able to do that this year in football. I like their chances better than OU’s for getting to 10 wins.”


Two Quotes

Cowboy Golf is way down the scoreboard through the first day of stroke play at the NCAA Championships:

One Question

• Could there be a more storybook ending for Bedlam baseball than OSU beating OU for the Big 12 title today? 

Non-OSU Bullets

• Should you park under an overpass during a tornado?

• What happens when you stop getting bored

Solid explanation on what the settlement around college athlete pay was about this week TLDR: revenue sharing could start as early as next year, backpay settled to 2016. Federal judge is looking at it now.

College Athlete Pay Settlement The National Collegiate Athletic Association and five power conferences—collectively representing more than 60 schools—agreed yesterday to a $2.8B class-action settlement, paving the way for universities to directly pay college athletes for the first time. If finalized, the plan would go into effect as soon as next year and reverse the amateur college sports model in place since 1906. Yesterday’s proposed settlement is a revenue-sharing model in which schools would pay athletes a cut of the money received from sponsorships, broadcasting rights, and ticket sales. Division I schools would have the ability to distribute up to $20M per year to their athletes. The settlement would also resolve claims of missed back-pay for current and former college athletes dating back to 2016, ending three antitrust cases, with a fourth case—Fontenot v. NCAA—still pending. The agreement now heads to a federal judge for approval, a process that could take months.
