OSU Bullets

Weekend watch guide for the OSU fan and a solid analysis of the remaining football schedule for the Pokes (PFB + Sellout Crowd)

• Comparing OSU’s quarterback situation vs. Iowa State’s (PFB)

• PFB’s Dekota Gregory dove into the numbers to tease out OSU’s offensive numbers compared to the rest of FBS and OSU historically – and it’s not ideal.

In theory, this all seems simple: the less chances you have to score, the less you score. OSU is running a lot less plays compared to normal and scoring a lot less points. However, whether that’s more because of new clock rules or just a bad offense is still up for discussion.

Converting an old school into apartments sounds like a fun real estate endeavor:

“Optimism early, pessimism in the middle, optimism late.

Your starting position has to be somewhat optimistic or you’ll talk yourself out of getting started. Believing in what you are about to do does not guarantee success, but a lack of belief can prevent it.

Once you’ve committed, pessimism becomes useful. Question things. Find holes in your plan. Hold yourself to a high standard and try to identify your mistaken beliefs before they become your misplaced actions.

After you’ve spent some time troubleshooting, it’s back to optimism again. Nothing will ever be perfect, but you have to act anyway. Progress requires the courage to forge ahead despite the inevitable obstacles.”
