OSU Bullets

• Lots of OSU/Iowa State preview #content out there:
Ten things to know about the game
– Previewing and predicting OSU/Iowa State (HCS)
CRFF picks the game (and others)
– Three things Iowa State’s Matt Campbell had to say about the game
– Video of OSU players previewing the game

• This is pretty cool – a podcast is out just looking at OSU Cowboy Wrestling, Lee Cothran, a friend of PFB and former contributor is putting it on

• Recapping the Texas win from the opponent’s perspective gives light to what the Cowboys undoubtedly are this year: competitors.

After intercepting (Casey Thompson’s) pass, (Jason) Taylor sailed 85 yards down the sideline for the touchdown that cut the Longhorns’ lead to 17–10 and breathed life back into a team that UT had been having its way with. As for the Longhorns, they had no stomach for the street fight that was about to begin.

Kyle Cox dug into the points per drive numbers and looked at how OSU’s defense is keeping the Pokes in games

• Cowboy defender Collin Oliver made this true freshman All-American team

• I’m here for all these numbers indicating Iowa State is good in October against anybody that’s not the OSU Cowboys:

• ESPN has him listed Jim Knowles as one of the top assistants in college football

Something encouraging for those of us hopping to hold onto Jim Knowles in Stillwater – he’s an incredible coach but he’s 56 and probably won’t be up for a lot of a head coaching positions

Non-OSU Bullets

Texas Monthly ranked the 50 best BBQ joints in the state
• Bob Bowlsby is expecting the four new teams to join the Big 12 in 2023-2024 – I think they’ll be here whatever season OU and Texas are playing in the SEC
• The Bible passage that helps to be a more patient parent (faith-based)
