Daily Bullets (Oct. 6): Mike Gundy Team Qualities, Weiberg’s State of the Union

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


OSU Bullets

• Enjoyed this 20-minute pod from TulsaWorld columnists – they zoomed out a bit and talked about a few Mike Gundy qualities: Winning games against teams from Texas, often wins “coin-flip games” and rarely show up unprepared

Texas Tech Game: Pokes are nearly a double-digit favorite, video interviews after Tuesday’s practice as the Pokes preview the game, and five things to know

• OSU athletic director Chad Weiberg on how he’s facing the uncertainty in college athletics moving forward is pretty good:

OSU is focused on positioning itself well for whatever comes next.

“We can’t sit here and not do anything,” Weiberg said. “We’ve got to adjust with those changes and I think because of what we’ve got here it gives us the best ability to adapt to those changes in a way that makes the most sense for us.

“We’ve got to continue to make similar kinds of decisions moving forward and stack those right decisions on top of each other. I think if we can continue to do that, then it’s just going to get better. I think it’s just going to get better for us.”
