Daily Bullets (Apr. 29): Cowboys Lead Big 12 in Basketball Transfers, Roc Riggio’s Perfect Stereotype

Thanks for stopping by – here’s your daily dose of Oklahoma State sports news.

Three Thoughts

• Another Cowboy, guard Chris Harris, Jr. entered the transfer portal yesterday – and Woody Newton found a home close to home – six transfers out ties for the lead in the Big 12 (PFB)

This piece on infielder Roc Riggio is spot on – he’s the prototype “love him if yours, hate him if he’s not” kind of player (O’Colly)

OSU is in the ballpark with their long-term Big 12 mates as far as first-round picks over the last decade – was not expecting to see that UCF, Houston, and Texas Tech had more first-round picks than the Longhorns over the last ten years (PFB)

Two Quotes

Mike Gundy on parenting and coaching your son is thoughtful:

“The difficulty of parenting is letting your kids fail,” Mike said. “And letting them grow from failure, which makes them better in the long run, but that’s not easy to do. I would say it’s the same thing here so far with Gunnar is, I stay out of it. I let him fail and then fix it and coach (Tim) Rattay helps him.”


• Golf thoughts from Cowgirl head coach Greg Robertson:

“You gotta be in control of your thoughts and what’s going on in your head,” Robertson said. “And golf is such a mental sport, and there’s so much time to think in between your shots and what you’re doing, that that’s a huge part of it. And if you don’t handle that the right way, you’re not gonna be the best golfer that you can be.”


One Question

• I love this concept – lots of room to dream about from an Oklahoma State perspective. For $1M could you get a shot off around the goal guarded by Moussa Cisse? Could you block Justin Kirkland for five seconds?
