OSU Bullets

The Pokes are a solid top-ten team wherever you look – here’s the update from the polls (Coaches and the AP polls)

Behind the scenes on the brilliant fourth quarter-flea flicker from Spencer Sanders to Bryson Green

Marshall Scott pointed out the fulcrum of the game – when Brock Martin hammered the ASU running back and forced a fumble:

On 3rd-and-1, Xazavian Valladay took a handoff, but before he could say “Sparky,” Martin folded him up at the waist. The ball popped out, Tyler Lacy fell on it and the Cowboys were rolling.

Down 3-0, OSU ripped out three straight scoring drives to take a 17-3 lead into the half.


• ICYMI – the Pokes landed a commitment from a 2023 sharpshooter on game day

• No OSU folks are rumored for it, but it is interesting to see who could replace Scott Frost at Nebraska (fired yesterday). I tell you what, if Kasey Dunn took a head coaching job, I’d love to see Frost calling plays in Stillwater.

Jaylen Warren filled in for an injured Najee Harris on Sunday’s win over Cincinnati – injury doesn’t appear serious but Harris was spotted in a boot after the game

• Texas’ starting quarterback was injured in Saturday’s loss to Alabama – estimated to be out four to six weeks with a clavicle injury – if he’s out the full six weeks, that would put him making his return for the October 22nd bout with the OSU Cowboys in Stillwater

• Gosh, what a sight/site.

Malcolm Rodriguez hip tossed a Pro Bowler in his regular season NFL debuthe got the start as a rookie sixth-rounder.

PFF had some comments on the debut:

Lions preseason standout Malcolm Rodriguez enjoyed a strong debut, although his grade will be hampered by two missed tackles. The linebacker allowed four catches into his coverage for only 24 yards.


Non-OSU Bullets

• This take on “not rooting for bank accounts” is flawed given that self-interest plays in but is spot on about the changing nature of college sports

• The messy home of blessing – terrific faith-based piece on raising young kids

Saturday night one of the best humans covering sports passed after a battle with cancer
– Loved his NBA coverage but this piece on loving his family after he passes probably won’t ever leave me
– Here’s some of his initial (faith-based) processing of his medical prognosis

The guts to put $25k on this parlay is beyond me – that individual earned that $1.2M
