Daily Bullets (Aug. 8): Bowman is Gelling with Receivers, Big 12 (Tentatively) Done Adding for Now

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

OSU Bullets

• It’s fall camp time in Stillwater – while so much rests on the evolution of the OSU offensive line, it sounds like the new quarterback is gelling well with his receivers:

(Alan Bowman’s) connection with (Brennan) Presley was evident. There was a play where Bowman threw the ball about 35 yards down the field and Presley wasn’t even looking for the ball. He turned around almost at the exact time the ball fell in his hands. Really impressive stuff. Those two, Washington State transfer De’Zhaun Stribling and redshirt sophomore Jaden Bray all looked really good

• How this “weird Spencer Sanders situation could work out for all parties” (Saturday Down South)

• Much ado has been made about how soft OSU’s schedule is – only two teams ranked on the schedule going into the season:

Non-OSU Bullets

• Impressive move – this farmer planted 80 acres of sunflowers to surprise his wife for their 50th anniversary (writing this down)
