OSU Bullets • OSU was involved with the big news in the sports world (with ongoing episodes of The Last Dance) when Matthew Wolff and Rickie Fowler barely lost in a benefit skins match, raising over a million dollars for the CDC. It all came down to this – Matthew Wolff (who played golf for OSU last season) was just outside the shot of the world’s No. 1 golfer in a closest to the pin contest. Closest to the pin. For $1,100,000. It came down to the final shot.@McIlroyRory and @DJohnsonPGA win the Taylormade #DrivingRelief and $1,850,000 charitable dollars for COVID-19 relief efforts! pic.twitter.com/WIF9JHZvQC — PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) May 17, 2020 • In an article doing power rankings for college football teams, these comments for the No. 21-ranked Cowboys point to what could be turning towards a crucial year for the Pokes.

OSU and Texas, nine wins or bust.
Isn’t that the point? If Texas isn’t winning the conference in the next couple of years, they will be looking for a new coach. Gundy could get by with never winning nine games again and he’s here till he wants to leave. There is zero push to win the conference, if he wants to fine, if he doesn’t, what is anyone going to do about it?
Now would you call that striving to be the best or just happy to have participated.

Texas might be looking after this year…Herman has pissed off enough folks that if he doesn’t win it with Ehlinger as a senior, he might be out. Pokes stuck with Gundy until well…whenever. Holder lacks the balls to put an ultimatum of any kind on Gundy. Gonna keep the rollover contract going. More mediocrity and 4th place conference finishes here we come!! Sick of it!
