The Daily Bullets are brought to you by Hoboken Coffee: perfectly roasted in historic Guthrie. Two bags ship free. Order now! OSU Bullets • Chuba Hubbard and Tylan Wallace were named Walter Camp All-Americans for the preseason • If you’re a betting man, YahooSports says to take Gundy’s Pokes over the Texas Longhorns for the Big 12 Championship. Best value: Oklahoma State +800 Texas has more all-around talent, but with the amount of star power Oklahoma State is returning on offense, it would be hard to question anybody who took a flier on the Cowboys at 8-1 compared to Texas’ +130 odds. [YahooSports] • The Seattle Mariners took the Cowboys’ second baseman in the third round • ESPN’s Jay Bilas may be my favorite college basketball commentator now – just look at how he went to bat for the Pokes. “The postseason ban, I feel in this case, is egregious,” Bilas told the O’Colly. “It is over-punishing, and the punishment is not in any way proportional to the charge.” [O’Colly] • Missed this in Thursday’s Bullets – Pokes lost a commit from the loaded 2020 wrestling class • According to this piece, OSU doesn’t have the blue-chip ratio to compete…

Hey Steven, loved the Chuba link calling on us all to be the change. I couldn’t agree more! Question though (mainly for KP), is this site going to be part of the change too? I ask that because you’ve allowed several blatantly racist comments to remain up on your forum. As the owner of the site, I would challenge you to not allow this type of behavior in the future, and instead name it for what it is instead of letting folks use your platform to sow misinformation, racist comments, and damaging rhetoric. When I reported this type of behavior, you messaged me saying, “We agree there is an issue and we’re looking into it.” but nothing was done aside from locking the thread about 24 hours later.

I really hope that you’ll be an ally to all of the people of color that are players, students, fans, and alumni in the OSU community. Please don’t allow this site to become a place where damaging and spiteful rhetoric is seen with a blind eye.

“This very same thing could happen to me or you by a bad cop if we put ourselves in dangers way by doing criminal activity and not complying to law enforcement directions.
