Daily Bullets

Richardson High School girls hoops, awesome. Caught a game with wife and friends last night and it was honestly one of the more entertaining basketball games I’ve seen all year. 

Hoops

This is so great, I always forget Iowa State hasn’t won in GIA since 1988. (WRNL)

Tony Allen on Eddie Sutton: Like one time, he sent me a picture of him riding a bull. I thought it was funny so I called him right back. Had to make sure he was OK, didn’t fall off it or nothing. (NewsOK)

It says a lot to me that a guy who’s 6’7 230 lbs. claims his favorite move is a step-back jump shot. (O’Colly)

To call Phil Forte a “gym rat” is to say that Stephen King types. (NewsOK)

Football

Pretty interesting way to rank the conferences. Not sure it has credibility with the Big East at No. 3, but still interesting. (NewsOK)

Cool story on Zack Craig, didn’t know his sister was a strength and conditioning coach. (OKstate)

Ashton Lampkin moved to safety? (NewsOK)

The Big 12 earned more football money per team than any other conference. Impressive. (ESPN)

Football recruits dropping like flies. (NewsOK)

It’s probably not good when the questions are longer than the answers… (Scout)

Other

Whoa this is weird. (NewsOK)

An artist who loves hoops? Been there before… (ESPN)

Wow, I clearly haven’t been following the girls closely enough, I had no idea Liz Donohoe hit 40 straight free throws. (O’Colly)

Yeah, I’m not sure how many of the Kansas uni reviews were “mixed” — I’d say they were all pretty straightforward. (Yahoo)

Whoa, Oklahoma State U. obstructing a pro-life group from campaigning on campus, now getting sued. (O’Colly)

This is a good thing. Embarrassing that college athletes aren’t paid. (Sports Illustrated)

Aubrey McLendon, gone. (The Lost Ogle)

Terrific.

It’s just so….perfect.

I tried to pick a favorite but all of them are my favorite.

  • Chad Kincer

    The 3rd bat throw is the best. Also, I get sad each day when I reach the end of bullets. It means I have to get back to work.

    Why do people think college athletes don’t get paid? High school athletes don’t get paid, unless you count bus rides. College athletes get free school, books, food, clothing, housing, rides, flights, free alcohol, trips, work out equipment, and other things. Plus they don’t pay any taxes on these like most people would. I would assume at a big conference school these things amount to around 40k a year or more. Not bad for a 18-22 year old without a college degree

      The fact that you tried to compare high school athletes not getting paid to college athletes not getting paid pretty much destroyed any credibility your argument had from the get go. Also, at what point do college athletes get free alcohol? As much as I wish this were true, it’s not. I could write an entire article on why student-athletes should get paid.

        Guess its been a while since you have been to a bar in Stillwater

    I love when the pitcher slams his glove on the ground…

  • Chris

    I originally thought TA was referring to Coach “falling off” something else in regards to riding the bull. That picture is a classic.

  • bMyles

    Man, those were great bat flips. But do any top Jacque Jones? Or Big Papi in the World Baseball Classic when he threw his bat towards the opposing dugout for that matter?

  • Leif

    The Big 12 football money kind of validates the decision to stay at 10 teams thus far. There just aren’t any options out there worth it at this point. I am intrigued by the conference “alliance” idea. It could bring in some revenue without diluting the overall product, which the B1G has done by adding Maryland and Rutgers, IMO.

    • Sean

      I kind of like the idea of partnering with the ACC. We could add 1 or two non-conference games with quality teams to increase the SOS for the play-offs, plus some of the match-ups would be great to watch. Basically it’s all the benefits of having them be part of the Big XII without having to share the TV money or mess up the round-robin conference format. If we added 6 teams, we would only get one or two of the east coast teams each year anyway.

    i never realized Asians were so cocky until now

  • KC

    I’m doing this on the tee box from now on.
