OSU Bullets

Kick time and TV details have been released for the OSU-Iowa State game coming up on Saturday, 10/24

• I like Marshall’s idea here for the OSU-Iowa State – you wonder if there’s any fluidity to the schedule for teams (going the other way). Now – to look at Iowa State’s schedule – they have way more incentive to want a bye before OSU than Kansas on the 31st.

Side note: Baylor’s COVID numbers leaked and it’s not good.

Pokes climb up the AP and Coaches Polls’ over their bye week

• Berry T. has the Pokes (still) at No. 1 in his Big 12 power rankings – and this nugget on OSU’s next opponent, Iowa State, is hard to fathom:

If the Cyclones had just beaten Louisiana-Lafayette, ISU would be ranked about sixth in the nation. The highest the Cyclones ever have been ranked was ninth, for one week in 2003.

Mike Gundy gave an update on the Baylor postponement due to COVID and his thoughts on this wild season

• You can watch OSU’s first men’s basketball practice on Wednesday at 1 p.m.

• Fun look at friend-of-the-site Doug Shivers’ collection of OSU memorabilia

• Massive blow here to a future Cowboy opponent when K-State lost Skylar Thompson for the season


Non-OSU Bullets

• Why the Chronicles of Narnia has hung around popular culture for 70 years (faith-based)
• Fun look at random suppliers of athletic uniforms (non-Nike or UA) in college sports – OSU’s relationship with “Sports Belle” makes an appearance

Watched this classic Alfred Hitchcock movie again – so good:
