Bixby (Oklahoma) defensive tackle Brendon Evers committed to Oklahoma State early in the recruiting process last March. Despite recruitment of other top prospects nationally, which many times can see multiple decommitments during a process, Evers stayed loyal to the Cowboys. Even with his family having a fandom of a different in-state school.“My whole family is OU fans,” Evers told the Tulsa World after signing with OSU. “At first it was weird, but they’re happy for me that I get to go to college and live my dream.”While it may have been weird at the beginning, it didn’t take long for OSU and Mike Gundy to sell Evers’ family on the atmosphere and the perfect fit their son would have at OSU.“I was a little skeptical,” Evers’ father Jim said. “But once we met coach Gundy and saw how family-oriented they were, we thought it was a good fit. We’re OSU fans from now on.”Just another day in the life of Mike Gundy. Winning over OU fans one day at a time.last_img read more

Three Cowboys made the trip to Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine. Chris Carson has already turned in an impressive showing with the running backs on Friday. Ashton Lampkin will get his chance on Monday when the defensive backs are in action.Sunday was Vincent Taylor’s turn as the defensive linemen and linebackers were on display.As an inside tackle (and at 304 pounds), Taylor wasn’t going for eye-popping numbers. But he showed off his strength, tying for 10th-best in bench press reps among D-linemen (26) earning him a “top performer” status.His best 40 time was 5.07 seconds with a respectable 1.77 10-yard split. That’s right where Taylor wanted to be per an interview with TampBay.com last month where he was asked what a good 40 time for him would look like.“Low 5 would be good,” said Taylor “5.1. Nothing over a 5.1, but I’m going to try to push myself into 5 flat or under 5.”Here’s a look at his numbers from Sunday.5.07 40-yard dash | 10-yard split was 1.7726 reps on the bench press (T10 among D-linemen).28.5 inch vertical leap108 inch broad jump7.58 seconds in the 3-cone drill4.72 seconds in the 20-yard shuttleAnd here’s Taylor getting an “alright, my man.” from Washington Redskins defensive line coach Jim Tomsula.Vincent Taylor (@BallOut_96) getting an “All right my man!” as he steps into a defensive lineman drill. #OKState pic.twitter.com/Cjgbda622K— Nate Feken (@TheGreat_Nate) March 5, 2017Prior to the Combine, Taylor’s draft grade per NFL.com was 5.35 which falls in the range of “NFL backup or special teams potential”.

Freshman LC Greenwood Says Track at OSU is a ‘Possibility’

first_imgWhile many signed recruits have used the football offseason to work out or just to rest, incoming freshman receiver LC Greenwood was running.Track season just ended, and Greenwood competed in the 200-meter, 4×400-meter relay and the 4×100-meter relay for his high school. He is signed to play football for the Cowboys in the 2017 season, but he said running track at OSU remains “a possibility.”“It depends on how the season goes,” Greenwood said.But he isn’t the only Cowboy recruit in the 2017 class who was out running. Just a few days after his graduation from Lakeview Centennial High School, he will report in Stillwater for summer camp June 2 and move in with his roommates and fellow freshmen receivers Tylan Wallace and Braydon Johnson. They’ve met.“It makes you more comfortable,” Greenwood said. “I’ve encountered them in track season because they’re track runners, too.”It has been a hectic few months for Greenwood since National Signing Day. Track kept him busy. He was nominated for prom king last weekend. Spring football practice just started, so he is out there helping the younger guys through it. And now he has to get ready to leave for Stillwater in a few weeks.“Finally starting to pack my bags and stuff, getting my stuff together,” Greenwood said.Greenwood also attended an awards ceremony Thursday night. He said it’s all been such a blessing to see where some of his friends have signed to play collegiately and even those who didn’t, it’s still just a fun time.Not everything is so easy though. Greenwood said the hardest part about the transition process to college is living on his own. No mom to do laundry, pack a lunch or say good night.“The waking up, being on my own part,” Greenwood said. “Not having anyone to wake you up and all that.”Greenwood said though learning how to live on his own might be tough, there’s one thing that he is most excited about when he gets to Stillwater.“Playing football,” Greenwood said. “Taking on the challenge.” While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Abrams is picking between OSU, Colorado and Mississippi State.“They want me to play strong safety,” the 6-foot-3 Abrams told PFB after a recent visit. “They said they like long safeties like Tre Flowers, so they see me like another safety like him when my game gets better. So I felt comfortable with that.”Following his visit to Stillwater, Abrams noted that it was Colorado and OSU who were giving him the most attention on the recruiting trail.OSU already has several commitments at safety in the 2018 class in Kanion Williams and Jarrick Bernard, but a junior college player like Abrams may be more primed to compete for a spot from day one. Team memberStevenPorterThomasCoxBoone PredictionOSUOSUMississippi StateOSUMississippi State The Reload is PFB’s recruiting recap catching you up to speed with the latest Oklahoma State recruiting news, with an ear to the ground for what to expect.How Hunter Anthony’s relationship with Henson led to OSUJacob Unruh of The Oklahoman wrote an awesome profile on OSU 2018 offensive line pledge Hunter Anthony, who said the reason for his commitment to OSU hinged on Henson’s return to Stillwater to coach the offensive line group after being on staff behind Greg Adkins for a year.“That was probably the thing that sealed the deal,” Anthony said. “The coaching staff was awesome before him, but whenever he got there, man, I really wanted to be a part of it.”AdChoices广告Anthony, a Tuttle, Oklahoma native who stands at an intimidating 6-foot-7, 315 pounds, is one of five bullies up front Henson has landed commitments from since taking over the gig in February.2018 offensive tackle Darrell Simpson names OSU in final eightFour-star offensive tackle Darrell Simpson, a top-20 prospect in the 2018 class in Texas, named OSU in his final eight schools this week along with OU, LSU, TCU, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Arkansas and Ohio State.Simpson is a monstrous offensive lineman who has been on OSU’s radar since J.W. Walsh was on campus and was his guide on a recruiting visit, and he’s been target No. 1 since Josh Henson took over. All indications lead me to believe he is leaning heavily towards OU—but I get the feeling Henson is keeping the Cowboys in play. Delrick Abrams commitment primer2018 safety Delrick Abrams, a junior college prospect playing for Independence C.C., will make his commitment on Friday. Our team made predictions on Wednesday and we were split between OSU and Mississippi State, with the Cowboys holding a slight 3-2 edge. Despite five commitments at offensive line in the 2018 class, Simpson would be a must-take under any circumstance if he gave the green light to OSU. The blue-chip talent from Justin, Texas, is a can’t-miss prospect at 6-foot-7 and 335 pounds. No matter the scholarship count, OSU would make room for him.2019 linebacker Marcel Brooks names OSU in top 13Four-star class of 2019 linebacker Marcel Brooks dropped a photo naming his top 13 schools this week.

Poll: Is Mike Gundy the Best Coach in the Big 12?

first_imgIt seems fitting during this week’s Big 12 Media Days to talk about Mike Gundy’s place in the coaching power structure of this league. Today’s poll question is whether Gundy is now the best Big 12 coach with Bob Stoops’ exit stage right.Gundy holds the highest winning percentage of any coach in the Big 12 so logic says that he probably is, BUT I’d be willing to listen to arguments for unproven coaches like Tom Herman, Lincoln Riley as well as the work Bill Snyder has done in Manhattan.This week’s poll question: With Bob Stoops’ departure, is Mike Gundy now the best coach in the Big 12?— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) July 18, 2017AdChoices广告As always we will revisit your comments tomorrow in a follow-up post so be sure and unload in the comments section below.

ESPN Analyst Calls OSU’s Offense ‘Best in the Country’

first_imgWe all know Oklahoma State is going to trot out one of the most dangerous and talented offenses in the country this season.But the best in college football? At least one prominent ESPN analyst says yes.In an interview on SportsCenter, college football analyst Trevor Matich says he believes Oklahoma State’s offense will be “the best in the country” this season. He also thinks OSU will be one of the four teams in the college football playoff this year.AdChoices广告Matich specifically points to quarterback Mason Rudolph as the biggest reason OSU’s offense will be so potent.“If your team is playing Oklahoma State and their quarterback, Mason Rudolph, drops back to pass… if he looks deep, you better be sure you’re holding your breath and sitting down.”Matich backs up his statements with some interesting stats about Rudolph’s effectiveness with the long ball.“…every other throw that he makes more than 20 yards down the field is a completion for 40 yards. Almost one out of three throws more than 20 yards down the field, is a touchdown.”Some credit for that needs to go to Rudolph’s receivers, especially James Washington. But Rudolph really does deserve a lot of credit. He’s shown a consistent ability to not only throw the ball deep, but do some with accuracy. If he can continue to perform that way this season, OSU should live up to, at least Matich’s expectations.

LAFC 2018 season preview

first_imgLos Angeles LAFC’s 2018 season preview: Roster, projected lineup, schedule, national TV and more Ives Galarcep @soccerbyives Last updated 1 year ago 02:52 28/2/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Bob Bradley LAFC 02122018 Los Angeles MLS Major League Soccer’s newest team is still building its roster, but already boasts enough firepower to hit the ground running It hasn’t been an easy ride for expansion teams in Major League Soccer. Far more have fallen short of the modest goal of reaching the playoffs in year one than have reached that milestone, and the best results have come from teams that spent big right away in order to avoid the early lumps of being the new team on the block.You can put Los Angeles FC in the category of big-spending newcomers, having already put together a formidable starting lineup heading into its inaugural MLS campaign. From Mexican star Carlos Vela to Uruguayan youngster Diego Rossi, down to MLS stars like Benny Feilhaber, Walker Zimmerman and Laurent Ciman, LAFC has put together a strong core that will ensure a competitive first season.Then you have Bob Bradley, the man who holds the distinction of being the only coach to guide an expansion team to an MLS Cup title. It is fitting that he embarks on another expansion project exactly 20 years after leading the fledgling Chicago Fire to an MLS Cup triumph. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Williams case shows Solskjaer isn’t holding Man Utd’s youngsters back – he’s protecting them Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp It is a much different league than it was 20 years ago though, and a different league than Bradley left behind in 2007 to take over the U.S. national team. That said, Bradley is still a formidable coach who should get the most out of a squad that could make some serious noise in its first season.LAFC’s key additionsCarlos Vela Real SociedadMexican star Carlos Vela is the kind of dynamic attacking force who should thrive in MLS. Whether deployed as a striker, or as an attacking midfielder, Vela has the vision, finishing ability and explosiveness to wreak havoc on opposing defenses.Diego Rossi will serve as Vela’s attacking foil, working the left wing, where his speed should open things up for the rest of his teammates.Egyptian national team standout Omar Gaber is a versatile player who can slot in as a winger, right back or defensive midfielder. That ability to play all over the field should serve Bob Bradley well as he builds his roster.Veteran MLS midfielder Benny Feilhaber is reunited with Bradley after playing for him as U.S. national team coach. Known more as a playmaker during his MLS career, Feilhaber is more likely to adopt a box-to-box role, which should make the most of the two-way ability Feilhaber honed playing for Sporting KC.Having solid center backs is key to success in any league, and LAFC hit the jackpot by landing Laurent Ciman and Walker Zimmerman in a pair of big trades that give the first-year team one of the most formidable central defensive tandems in MLS.Full LAFC roster entering 2018 seasonBenny Feilhaber MLS Sporting KC 03112017Goalkeepers: Luis Lopez, Tyler MillerDefenders: Steven Beitashour, Tristan Blackmon, Laurent Ciman, Jordan Harvey, Dejan Jakovic, Joao Moutinho, Walker ZimmermanMidfielders: Eduard Atuesta, Benny Feilhaber, Omar Gaber, Mark-Anthony Kaye, Aaron Kovar, Calum MallaceForwards: Latif Blessing, Rodrigo Pacheco, Diego Rossi, Marco Urena, Carlos VelaLAFC’s projected starting lineupGFX 2018 LAFC Projected XI 02272018There aren’t many full-blown position battles just yet considering the LAFC roster is still being filled out, but there are certain parts of the field where there are some good options.LAFC officially added Colombian midfielder Atuesta on loan on Tuesday, a move that helps give LAFC some bite in the defensive midfield role.Argentine forward Pacheco and former Sporting KC speedster Blessing give Bradley some attacking options off the bench, though more depth is needed there. Kaye can play on the wing or in central midfield and should find some minutes as well.Veteran defender Harvey and rookie Moutinho should battle it out for the left back position, with Moutinho having enjoyed a strong preseason.Canadian central defender and former D.C. United standout Jakovic is back in MLS and should give LAFC a good third option in central defense.LAFC’s national TV coverageSeattle Sounders vs. Los Angeles FC – Sunday, March 4, at 5 p.m. ET on ESPNReal Salt Lake vs. Los Angeles FC – Saturday, March 10, at 5:30 p.m. ET on UnivisionLA Galaxy vs. Los Angeles FC – Saturday, March 31, at 3 p.m. ET on FOXAtlanta United vs. Los Angeles FC – Saturday, April 7, at 5 p.m. ET on ESPNLos Angeles FC vs. Seattle Sounders – Sunday, April 29, at 9 p.m. ET on FS1Los Angeles FC vs. FC Dallas – Saturday, May 5, at 4 p.m. ET on UnivisionLos Angeles FC vs. New York City FC – Sunday, May 13, at 8:30 p.m. ET on FS1Portland Timbers vs. Los Angeles FC – Saturday, May 19, at 3 p.m. ET on FOXLos Angeles FC vs. D.C.

Porter’s Notebook: Oklahoma State-Iowa State

first_imgFS1’s video feed cut out for NASCAR Truck Series Texas Roadhouse 200 finish, finish came with audio only, then a quick throw to CFB https://t.co/Cpp9303qL7 pic.twitter.com/EsH28izrpk— Awful Announcing (@awfulannouncing) October 26, 2019• Tom Hutton was wearing his “I’m from Australia and had never heard of Ames, Iowa until about a week ago” sleeves and tights today.• The ability to go over the middle is invaluable. Iowa State put it on display on that end-of-first-half drive when Purdy repeatedly went at the heart of OSU’s defense. OSU either can’t or won’t do it (probably the former), and it limits them offensively.• How many intentional groundings did it seem like Purdy had in the first half? There were at least three that I started looking around the shed on.• There were no flags in the first 29 minutes. A Gundy dream.• What a world.Gundy attempting to ice Assalley— Chris Williams (@ChrisMWilliams) October 26, 2019• In one half!Kolby Harvell-Peel’s five first-half pass breakups ties the #okstate record. pic.twitter.com/i3H6CDec3w— Kyle Cox (@KyleCoxPFB) October 26, 2019• How scared were you guys when Metcalf went under center to start the second half?• I wish you could bottle and sell how badly I wanted Gundy to hand his shades to the ref here.Screen Shot 2019-10-26 at 4.37.22 PM.png• There’s not much I hate more than I hate running Sanders on a keeper to the short side of the field with Chuba right next to him. Like … why?• A great take. The 10 thoughts are fresh out of the oven right here, but I wanted to empty out my notebook on this totally normal and not at all weird day in the Big 12. Join me as I walk you through the notes I took during the OSU-Iowa State game on Saturday.• This sums up the season.We cant see the #Okstate game because @FS1 is showing NASCAR TRUCK SERIES 😂 such disrespect— Carson Cunningham (@KOCOCarson) October 26, 2019• Given OSU’s inability to recruit a brother other than the other Harper kid, Charlie Kolar lighting up these Pokes would be perfecto (update: It was).• Moar. Braydon. Johnson.• Iowa State literally cannot tackle Tylan Wallace.• One of my favorite games is finding OSU folks on the sideline during games. There’s Holder. There’s Scott Verplank. There’s Mrs. Holder. There’s Kyle Wray in his duster!• Sanders needs to set his feet better. Not when he’s on the run, but he’s rarely set when he’s in the pocket. Always bobbing around, which leaves his throws vulnerable. Should have been picked early on one of them.• Marshall hollered earlier this week about how Breece Hall might be a dude. No longer a “might be” for me.• It’s tough watching another Big 12 team use a big TE up the seam to light up an opposing defense. (Update: OSU did it, too).• Amazing take from Lee Cothran in the Chamber right here: Bernie Sanders taking out ad time on YouTube TV is knowing your audience… Bernie Sanders taking out ad time during an Iowa State – Oklahoma State football game is not knowing your audience.• Anybody know if “shock” is a brand or a customization for No. 30?Screen Shot 2019-10-26 at 3.20.24 PM.png• “We’re not talking about Michael Vick when we’re talking about Purdy running.” I laughed. Need more jokes from broadcasting crews.• Why is Iowa State running the Wildclone but with a QB offset. Isn’t the purpose of that formation to get an extra blocker for the runner?• If you would have showed me a still shot of every KHP play in the first half approximately 0.5 seconds before the ball arrived at its destination, I would have said he ended the game with at least six interceptions.• I love Chuba on 3rd- and 4th-and-short if the box isn’t totally stacked. Like, with multiple WRs out wide. If get avoids the first wave, it’s over.• At what point are helmets just one big sticker?Screen Shot 2019-10-26 at 3.44.05 PM.png• Lol at this. How is Stoner able to make 15 guys miss and only get 6 yards on a punt return— Southwell (@JustinSouthwell) October 26, 2019• I didn’t like kicking to make it 24-20. I thought they should have gone for it even if Ammendola is all of the money.• I saw two grad assistants holding up a curtain behind a coach giving signals to the QB on the ISU sideline. The curtain had a Toyota sponsorship printed on it. #amateurathletics!• Good blocking here.Screen Shot 2019-10-26 at 5.05.31 PM.png• When you get to Chuba before he gets going, he’s much easier to tackle. Well yeah.• I love how Iowa State uses Breece as a safety valve when he goes in motion to the long side of the field on a pass play. How scary would OSU be if Chuba did that?• Just realized during the 4th quarter today that Baylor is all alone in first place in the Big 12. Not great!• I wonder how often in a Power 5-Power 5 game one team has run twice as many plays as the other team. Didn’t happen in this one, but it got close in the 4th as ISU neared 80 and OSU was on 43. Ended 88-55. Looked it up later, and TCU doubled up OSU in 2015 to the tune of 110-53, which is just astonishing.• Sanders had Chu on this third down. Gotta make that throw. Got to.Screen Shot 2019-10-26 at 5.34.42 PM.png• The interceptions by Cowboys Malcolm Rodriguez, Amen Ogbongbemiga and Tre Sterling were all the first of their careers. Has to be the first time this has ever happened to three different guys in the same game in OSU history.• OSU took 11 offensive snaps on Iowa State’s side of the 50. Eight in the third, three in the fourth. This feels impossible. Did this really happen?• Here are the TO totals in the Knowles era sorted by most TO. You can put this one at the top with Texas.Screen Shot 2019-10-26 at 8.10.20 PM.png• Did you know OSU had lost six straight Big 12 road games coming into this one? In reverse order: Tech, Texas, TCU, OU, Baylor, Kansas State.• Trace Ford became the first true freshman to start this year. Appropriate.• I love Kasey Dunn’s hat here. May have bought it in 2013.Screen Shot 2019-10-26 at 5.48.17 PM.png• OSU is (somehow) 8-3 in its last 11 games against top-25 opponents. Again, this feels impossible.• OSU now has 15 plays of 50+ yards on the season. Coming into today, only six other teams had 10 or more, and OSU had the most with 12 before adding three in Ames.• At 1,381 yards, Chuba now has the 15th-best season by a RB in OSU history. There are four (probably five) games left.center_img While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.
