We’ll (OSU sports and fans) will be back. When the time comes, we’ll be ready. pic.twitter.com/m8jSLbKmam — Oklahoma State Athletics (@OSUAthletics) March 14, 2020 Bullets Rundown • Stillwater’s recruiting location • Carmelo Anthony vs. the Pokes • Pokes have the top Canadians OSU (and NCAA) Bullets • Stillwater isn’t Baylor in the middle of Texas’ fertile recruiting grounds, but it’s not in the worst spot either. Oklahoma State is a little closer to the metroplex than Tech and are also pretty close to OKC and Tulsa, which are underrated spots for finding good football players. Overall they’re pretty far out there relative to the rest of the league. [Concerning Sports] • A wild memory here: in 2003, OSU held Carmelo Anthony to his worst shooting performance before Anthony made his title run. 65. 2003: OSU took a 27-10 lead on Syracuse in the East Regional quarterfinals in Boston, but freshman Carmelo Anthony led a big comeback, and the Orange went on to win 68-56. [NewsOK $$$] I suspect Anthony Allen had something to do with that. • Pretty cool – Pokes have two of the top five Canadians in college football this year • Pretty wild that Louisville hasn’t even…

“Overall they’re pretty far out there relative to the rest of the league”

Sorry, I just never have (probably never will) understand HOW an additional 70 (DFW) or 48 miles (OKC) warrants OSU (vs OU) being classified as being “pretty far out there”

Maybe someone can help me?

Pretty insane that Syracuse went through FOUR Big 12 teams to win the Championship.
