Daily Bullets (September 27)



Mason Tebow

Fun to hear some quotes from the Cowboy field general this week.

OSU lost two games within three weeks early last season. The Cowboys recovered from their second loss to Baylor with seven-consecutive wins before losing to Oklahoma in the last game of the regular season.

The past was brought up again. A reporter reminded Rudolph that the team bounced back last year after losing “a couple of games” last season.

“We don’t plan on losing another one so it won’t be a couple (of losses)” Rudolph said. [O’Colly]

So it’s not quite Tebow-post Ole Miss in 2008 but it sounds more likely than not that it won’t beat them two weeks in a row.

Heisman Dark Horse

While his campaign has shifted from second-to-Baker to just outside of placing territory, Rudolph’s hype hasn’t been completely extinguished.

Even though Mason Rudolph threw for 398 yards and two touchdowns Saturday against TCU, but had his worst game of the year. In a 44-31 loss, Rudolph completed only 53.7 percent of his passes and threw two costly interceptions. He was under constant pressure from the TCU defense, which is far more talented than the other three defenses he lit up during OSU’s 3-0 start.

One poor performance won’t bump him from contention. Rudolph is still second nationally with 1,533 yards and is tied for third with 13 touchdowns to just three interceptions. Don’t count the Cowboys out just yet. [Yahoo Sports]

Apparently, pundits haven’t forgotten about his flaming hot start to 2017 and neither should we.

OSU and NCAA Notes

USAToday with a good piece on looking at yesterday’s issues from a macro-level….Bretty McMurphy has the Pokes headed back to San Antonio for bowl season….Yahoo makes some week five picks against the spread – takes the Pokes over Tech….Berry Tramel had an interesting, reasonable take on Glenn Spencer in yesterday’s chat

Everything about how Gundy rolled with the loss over the weekend leads me to believe this is true.

I wonder if this will eventually be figured into the cost-of-living for scholarships.

This is hard to fathom.
