Three Thoughts

• Outside of the drama of you know, deciding to play the season or not, the most dramatic battle going into the season may be… the cornerback position?

(Jarrick) Bernard-Converse has played the last two seasons in the safety position that regularly covers the opponent’s best inside receiver, so he has the coverage skills to move to cornerback.

But (Christian) Holmes comes with more experience, having played in 25 games the last two years. [NewsOK]

It’s intriguing, right? Years of experience doing the exact “thing” vs. knowing the system and adapting from a comparable role.

• Mike Boynton’s Cowboys are sticking pretty close to him with the non-conference slate that was released yesterday – a considerate move in this day and age.

The Cowboys’ only games outside a five-hour drive from Stillwater will be the Charleston Classic and their Big 12/Big East Battle game against Marquette. That’ll be awesome if this pandemic is any more handled by November. [PFB]

Cowboy alum Russell Okung is reportedly considering retirement and he’s had one heck of a career – look at these accolades:

Okung, 31, was a first-round pick in 2010. He has made two Pro Bowls and has earned nearly $100 million for his career. [ESPN]
