    Football 2021 JUCO OL Caleb Etienne Committed to OSU

    That's awesome. I wish he was available Saturday.

    Cowboys (1-0) Defeat UT-Arlington (0-1) 75-68. Next Up vs Texas Southern SATURDAY in GIA #NewEra

    Random thoughts from the game: 1. Cunningham had a very quiet 21 points & 10 boards. He's still figuring things out, but he should be a monster by the end of the year. 2. It felt like Ice had a bad game, but he wasn't that far from a triple double. He always finds a way to fill the stat line...

    Cowboys (1-0) Defeat UT-Arlington (0-1) 75-68. Next Up vs Texas Southern SATURDAY in GIA #NewEra

    This isn't really unexpected since we have 8 new players. It will take awhile for everything to come together. Hopefully we'll be a lot further along by conference play.

    The Market Thread

    The Dow hit 30K for the first time ever today. I heard that sidelined cash is back down to pre-pandemic levels. This run seems a little exuberant with the COVID spike we're seeing, but I'm not going to complain.

    What would you like to see in a new Football Head Coach

    I figure he'll either want to stay until he's graduated or step away before he's ready to play to avoid the claims of nepotism. I know that Bob Stoops stepped away before coaching his son. I'm not really sure what Coach Gundy's plan is.

    What would you like to see in a new Football Head Coach

    His old contract called for him to receive 75% of his remaining salary if he was fired. So we're in a better position if a change does need to be made in the future. Hopefully he'll either find a way to turn things around or ride off into the sunset before we ever need to worry about that...

    What would you like to see in a new Football Head Coach

    The restructured contract he signed earlier this year calls for him to receive half of his remaining salary if he's fired. So the buyout would be about half that. We didn't have cause to fire him earlier this year. There isn't a judge in our state that would nullify a multi-million dollar...

    What would you like to see in a new Football Head Coach

    $5 million plus per year makes this an attractive job for any coach that isn't a head coach in the NFL or at a top 25 collegiate program. This job is vastly more attractive now than it was 10-20 years ago.

    What would you like to see in a new Football Head Coach

    He's been mentioned as an NFL HC candidate for the past few years. I'm not sure why it hasn't happened for him yet. Maybe people think that his magic is tied to Mahomes and he would be average without him.

    What would you like to see in a new Football Head Coach

    Coach Dunn is one of the best position coaches in the history of our football program, but the jury is still out on him as a playcaller. I know that we've had a lot of issues with the offensive line, but you would think that we would still find a way to have some success with Hubbard & Wallace.

    What would you like to see in a new Football Head Coach

    Here are a few names that I would be interested in if Coach Gundy retired: 1. Todd Monken - He's an elite playcaller and beloved by most of our fanbase. 2. Bryan Harsin - He's at his alma mater, but we could easily double his salary. 3. Billy Napier - He's been very successful at Louisiana. He's...

    Official Game Thread: Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma

    OSU's winning percentage for the past decade: 0.715% (13th in the country) OSU's winning percentage for the past 3 years: 0.606% (Outside the top 25) I'm not calling for Coach Gundy's head, but something has to change. We've been slowly trending in the wrong direction since his peak in 2011.

    VOTE! HIRE HUGH FREEZE THREAD

    Ole Miss had to vacate 33 wins over 6 years after it was proven that they committed 15 level 1 rules violations. Freeze resigned after it was proven that he used a university cell phone to call an escort service to cheat on his wife. He's a morally reprehensible human being. I do not want him in...

    What would you like to see in a new Football Head Coach

    I really like the idea of Coach Monken. He's an elite playcaller and he took Southern Miss from winless to the conference championship game in 3 short years. It's clear that he can build a program. The only downside is that he's one year older than Coach Gundy. So he might not be a long term...

    What would you like to see in a new Football Head Coach

    If Coach Gundy were to retire, these are the attributes I would look for in a new coach: 1. Integrity - I don't want a dirty coach, regardless of how successful they are. 2. Success - He should have proven he can win at a group of 5 or lesser P5 program. 3. Dynamic recruiter - I want someone...

    Since Rudolph: 2015: John Kolar 2016: Keondre Wudtee 2017: Jelani Woods 2018: Spencer Sanders 2019: Brendon Costello 2020: Shane Illingworth, Ethan Bullock, & Gunnar Gundy I think that Sanders & Illingworth both have potential, but our batting average hasn't been very good over the past several...

    Official Game Thread: Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma

    I looked this up a few weeks ago. I don't have the overall records in front of me but, Texas, K-State, Baylor, Texas A&M, & TCU all have a better winning percentage against OU than us during the Gundy era.

    Official Game Thread: Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma

    A wise person once told me that you're always moving forward or falling behind, you're never standing still. For the first half of Coach Gundy's career, we were steadily moving forward. This culminated in 2011 where we were a few plays short of the national championship game. Since that point...
