Daily Bullets (Oct. 24): Quarterback “Purgatory”, Stoner Says “Just Stay With Us”



Cade Cunningham “committed” to the city of Arlington yesterday – I don’t get the ferocious nature to hide and invalidate recruiting intel floating around about oneself. 

Bullets Rundown

• Quarterback purgatory
• Defense setting a tough pace
• Stoner says to “just stay with us”


• Softball: Cowgirls 11, Seminole State 1

OSU Bullets

• While the below comment is intended for an NFL audience, you’ll find it resonates with a college football fanbase as well.

The only thing worse in the NFL than being sure that you don’t have a franchise quarterback is being in the purgatory of not being sure that your quarterback is actually “the dude.” [538]

It’d take another Texas Tech game or two to say that Spencer Sanders isn’t the guy. Here’s the thing: Sanders doesn’t have to be the reason they win games, his turnover-prone game just can’t be a big reason why they’re losing.

• Having just said the above, a little different perspective seems to explain the Pokes’ loss last week in a different way.

However, Oklahoma State’s defensive woes last Saturday against Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer outweighed the production of Hubbard, who has rushed for more than 120 yards in six of seven games.

The Cowboys led then-No. 18 Baylor 13-10 at halftime and appeared to be on the verge of sending shock waves through the Big 12 with an upset victory.

However, big plays by Brewer, who passed for 312 yards on just 13 completions, torched coach Mike Gundy’s squad in the second half. [Yahoo Sports]

On one hand, you can look to the untimely turnovers (and not scoring more than 30 points) as the reason for the loss. On the other, 13 completions for 300+ is a horse race few redshirt freshmen can win. 

• More than any argument (shallow or sincere), reading comments like this from Dillon Stoner makes a guy want to fill his seat at BPS for the rest of the year.

A four-time state champ in high school, Stoner has had to deal with something he hasn’t had to much in his football career: losing.

“Just stay behind us,” Stoner said. “We’re still figuring stuff out. It’s frustrating for us, as well. We hate to lose more than anyone. We come out and do this every day. Just stay with us, and we’ll get right back on track.” [PFB]

Ragusa’s film review of Baylor was great this week

• I didn’t notice this yesterday but I like closing with Texas next fall.

Non-OSU Bullets

• Finished this non-fiction read, looking at better usage of social media – fantastic read. Implementing lots of ideas from the book and would recommend it.
• This piece on NBA title contenders had a great idea for a CP3-to-Milwaukee trade
• Some faith-based elements but a solid list of things this dad was glad to have done with his kiddos
