Three Thoughts


Every once in a while, a Cowboy Football roster aligns (with) the stars and is poised to make a run. 2020 is that season.


Mike Gundy is all in on this season. He’s returning arguably the best athlete in the league at QB, WR, and RB and now adds a top level guard, defensive tackle, cornerback, and a freak-level talent at wide receiver. [Concerning Sports]

• With the Hall of Fame enshrinement being pushed back, it would have been crushing for Eddie to have passed between the two time periods (between when the ceremony would have been in August and next year).

• I’m thankful to have read Mike Boynton’s well-spoken thoughts about the Minneapolis situation:

Two Quotes


• This was a hilarious anecdote about Eddie Sutton – he called Tony Allen out on a wild haircut. It was, of course, about more than a haircut.


Oklahoma State coach Eddie Sutton was appalled from the moment he saw the hairstyle. It sure didn’t take long for Allen to get a haircut.

“Yo, that’s not getting you to the NBA,” Allen recalled Sutton saying. [NewsOK]

Eddie knew how to get TA there, and boy did he.

• The Power Five appears to be interested in setting their own rules for paying players. What’s interesting is this would be a very natural point for the Power Five to break off altogether.


In 3-page letter, obtained by @Stadium, Power 5 league commissioners ask Congress to “enact clear national policy on NIL & not wait for NCAA process to conclude” & “so there will be uniform national standard that will preempt state NIL laws. … time is of the essence.” pic.twitter.com/VbaRCHTGXL

Non-OSU Bullets


Fun, innovative ways sports can change after the virus
• I’ve posted before but laughed about these terrible reviews of national parks
• Watched this YouTube interview yesterday with recently passed Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias – really appreciate his story and what he was about

Liked this James Clear quote on solving problems:


How to see opportunities others miss:
1) Study a totally different field, then return to the original problem. Apply insights from other domains.
2) Invert the problem. Try to achieve the opposite.
3) Talk to hyper-creative people. Their thinking will rub off.
