• Today’s the spring football finale and here are ten players to watch for if you’re making the trip – here are a pair of high-level recruits that will be in attendance
• After last night’s thrashing, the Pokes will try to make the next step towards a weekend sweep of Horned Frogs today at 2 p.m.
• I’m not sure how many times I can say “we’re going to learn a lot about Mike Boynton over the next two years” but ESPN’s latest “bracketology” has the Pokes in as a No. 8 seed – that’s a good start
• This sounds like “sports agent training” but what a fun idea linking OSU business students to athletes to help with NIL:
The Brand Squad was born in August, connecting trained and certified members directly with athletes who can discover and maximize opportunities allowed as a result of the NCAA rule change.
• A rule change will be in place in 2022 that will impact Cowboy Football’s opponents that tend to break it frequently (cough* Texas *cough):
The NCAA also addressed players faking injuries to slow the pace of a game, a practice that has become more common with the widespread use of up-tempo offenses. Conferences and schools will now submit a report to the national coordinator of officials, who will provide feedback to the conference. The conference or school would then levy any additional punishment.
• Football staffing question: would you rather have Derek Mason as defensive coordinator and Charlie Dickey as the offensive line coach… or Joe Bob Clements as the defensive coordinator and (someone-like-a) Bill Bedenbaugh as the offensive line coach?
