Daily Bullets (Apr. 21): Pokes Going Star Hunting

April 21, 2022

Thanks for stopping by – here’s your daily dose of Oklahoma State sports news.


Softball: Cowgirls 12, Tulsa 1

OSU Bullets

Cowboy Basketball and Football are going star-hunting:
– Boynton’s squad made contact with former five-star recruit Emoni Bates who’s in the portal
– Mike Gundy had two five-star recruits on campus, has a four-star/Under Armour All-American tackle coming to campus

• Lots of good anecdotes in this article catching up with Cowboy legend R.W. McQuarters – Gundy was his lead recruiter!

• This quote from OSU defensive coordinator Derek Mason on how they’re keeping the defense the same but adding twists is super intriguing:

“…I’m having a good time because at the end of the day, we’re adding some variables that can make us very, very unique in this conference.”


Good high-level piece on the Big 12 looking at how the offenses appear to be trending differently this fall given staff changes

• Didn’t realize how snakebit Vincent Taylor’s career has been by injuries but he just signed a one-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons

An underrated aspect of Vincent Taylor’s game at OSU – his pitching capability:

• CBS Sports has Mike Boynton’s Pokes in their preseason “top 25 plus one”

• Kasey Dunn talked about coaching true freshman, four-star receiver Talyn Shettron

Non-OSU Bullets

Fun piece looking at a 15-year simulation of college football using relegation
Fun reflection on the best meals you’ve ever had
• Putting flesh on the idea of “denying yourself” (faith-based)
