• After shellacking a SWAC opponent, the Pokes drop a spot in both the Coaches and AP polls – Here’s where other Big 12 teams are in the AP

• After losing to the Pokes last week and Eastern Michigan this week, Arizona State’s Herman Edwards was fired yesterday.

On a related note – keep an eye out for Cowboy defensive coordinator Derek Mason for the head coach opening. He’s a name listed, not on a shortlist, but as a viable candidate.

• This is fascinating – seeing what media members have the Pokes highest and lowest:

  • Don Williams of Lubbock Avalanche has the Pokes at No. 22 (!!!)
  • Zack Klein of a Georgia TV station has the Pokes at number five

• This comparison of Spencer Sanders between 2022 and 2021 is encouraging:

Three games into the 2022 season, Spencer Sanders is responsible for 13 touchdowns. Three games into the 2021 season, Sanders had six touchdowns. He didn’t hit 13 in 2021 until the seventh game of the year.

• Pretty solid that the Pokes are top-three in the nation at tackles for loss at this point:

Thinking in decades avoids a lot of bad behavior.

If you think about relationships lasting decades, you’ll often handle the current moment differently. This works for co-workers, partners, suppliers, customers, friends, etc.

Think twice before you interrupt time.
