OSU Bullets

The OSU/K-State game is nearly a pick-em anyway you look at it – Casear’s Sportsbook opened at a pick’em and ESPN’s SP+ projects it at just a couple hundredths of a point difference between teams

• A couple of Cowboys were named Big 12 offensive and defensive players of the week for their performance against Texas

OSU back in the Cotton Bowl would be a lot of fun… ideally not against a Group of Five opponent though. Sugar Bowl against Alabama sound good to anybody?

Here’s what Oklahoma State has over most teams it plays at this point:

Mike Gundy is now 5-1 straight up as a home underdog since 2016. And for my money, he remains the most underrated college football coach in America. Spencer Sanders is the foxhole guy you want in your corner with the game on the line, bum shoulder or not. And the defense is continuing to make key stops when needed.


Everything Mike Gundy had to say at his weekly presser recapping Texas and previewing K-State

The Pokes game against Kansas is falling into the six-day window – kick time and TV network won’t be decided until next week

Cowboy Wrestling secured a commitment from on of the top juniors in the country

The Athletic ($$$) did a great piece highlighting how Marcus Smart cares for kids with cancer

• Really fun to hear Kyle Porter back breaking down the Texas game on the PFB podcast with Carson and Colby

• Some national media has commented on the penalty disparity (14-0) between OSU and Texas Saturday. What an excellent public service – Adam Lunt dove in and looked at the nature of these penalties – eight were false start/offsides!

Also – loved how this Cowboy fan defeated all arguments. Five Texas penalties were judgment calls by refs and OSU had two penalties, one that was declined and one that was offset by (yet another) Texas penalty. The fan pointed out that five to two penalties is hardly noteworthy (agreed)

To make a long point longer, the Cowboys are incredibly disciplined concerning penalties on the season:

Non-OSU Bullets

• The fit with Russell Westbrook in LA has been brutal – still time to turn it around but clock is ticking
Great reflection on initiating with the lonely (faith-based)

Sign me up for this – are there wives that agree to see this on Valentine’s weekend?
