The 10 Most Pivotal Moments of the 2017 Oklahoma State Football Season | Pistols Firing

The 2017 season will likely be seen as a disappointment by most for years to come.

While Oklahoma and TCU battled for the Big 12 championship last Saturday, Oklahoma State awaited its bowl fate on the sidelines in Stillwater.

So where did the bad go wrong? Where did the good go right? There’s obviously more #analysis than a few plays from the season. But here are the 10 biggest and most important, ranked, that helped shape the 2017 season for the Cowboys.

10. J.D. King scamper vs. Tulsa

OSU’s decision to put true freshman J.D. King as the backup to Justice Hill paid off almost instantly. On his second career carry of the season in the first game against Tulsa, King busted one loose for 71 yards and a score.

It wasn’t exactly a jaw-dropping carry. In fact, he broke through without much more than a slap at the line. But this play was a sign of things to come for King in 2017. He was an awesome thunder to Hill’s lightning. He might rock as a sophomore when OSU evolves into a Big Ten team and runs it 50 times a game.

9. A.J. Green’s game-saver in Ames

A.J. Green is a dude. It took me several weeks to realize it, and took me even longer to publicly admit it. But No. 4 can ball, and he proved it in Ames with a game-saving INT in the corner of the end zone that was as awesome a walk-off I’ve seen as an OSU fan.

8. Thumping Baylor

There were a lot of really good plays for OSU, and not many for Baylor in this lopsided homecoming tilt so we’re just throwing the entire game on this list.

Considering OSU’s recent struggles against Baylor — and taking into consideration the entirety of the Art Briles era — this was a satisfying moment in the 2017 season. It feels good to thump Baylor. It feels even better when Baylor stinks.

7. Whitener picks Baker in Bedlam

This list could be 10 plays from Bedlam honestly, but I’m going to keep it to three. 👀

The third biggest? With OSU’s backs against the wall late in the fourth, Chad Whitener delivered a clutch INT to give OSU a shot to take the lead late.

Considering how Baker sliced and diced OSU’s defense all game, this was yooge for morale. The crowd was rocking. My hands were quivering. Our pets heads were falling off. It was an unreal moment!

6. Rudolph’s Heisman moment

Remember when OSU hung half a million on Pitt in Week 3 and Rudolph was a Heisman frontrunner? Doesn’t that felt like 46 years ago?

In any case, it was a sweet time, nonetheless. This play would have been played on loop at the Heisman ceremony if things had gone differently for Oklahoma State this season.

5. The Bundage touchdown that wasn’t

What happens if the fumble-that-wasn’t doesn’t get overturned? What happens if Bundage just leisurely Conor McGregors into the end zone in the first half against OU and the Pokes take a 10-0 lead that stands?

We will never know. But man, I can’t believe this was overturned. A what-if for the ages, really.

4. Marcell bails out OSU in Taco-town

It’s not entirely unrealistic to think OSU could have opened league play 0-2. The Cowboys did not play well in Lubbock against the Red Raiders and squeaked out a 41-34 win. But if not for this Marcell Moss snag on third down, things could have been way different.

That snag set up a bootleg for No. 2 who delivered the go-ahead score with just over a minute to play. A thriller that (probably) shouldn’t have been a thriller to begin with!

3. The double-pass against TCU

Despite falling behind double digits to TCU, Oklahoma State’s offense was finding its groove in the second half …. before the double pass with McCleskey happened. This was the dagger that ended OSU’s comeback attempt and, in hindsight, maybe OSU’s Big 12 title hopes.

2. Ramon INT in Austin

How clutch is Ramon?! Game on the line. Defense backed up on the road. In overtime. Yet No. 7 rises up to snag a game-winning INT.

I will never forget this sequence. Insane. (Also, no idea where Ehlinger was throwing that.)

1. Fourth down in the fourth against OU

On fourth and eight with Bedlam bragging rights hanging in the balance, Mason Rudolph overthrows Tyron Johnson by a few yards, effectively ending OSU’s chances at coming out on top and securing the drivers seat to the Big 12.

Oh, what could have been.

Maybe if the two connect in stride, Baker marches down the field to rip OSU’s hearts out anyway. But boy, would I have loved to see this thing happen. BPS would have erupted. I would have fainted. The line at Murphy’s would have been backed up to I-244!

BREAKING: Davon Dillard and Zack Dawson No Longer on Team

**Update 12:50 p.m.

Boynton met with both players and their parents late Wednesday night, where the decision was made, according to a story by Mark Cooper of the Tulsa World.

“This is probably the worst, if there’s a worst part of the job, is that these things happen,” Boynton said. “But my first and foremost responsibility is to the program. And I can’t make compromises in our core values when it comes to individual players. Neither one of those kids is a bad kid and that’s what makes it really, really hard. But they need this, and our program needs to move forward at this point. Certainly not an easy decision, but it’s one that’s necessary.”

“I’m a parent as well, so I certainly understand that people make mistakes,” Boynton said. “But we can’t ever compromise our core values. There are things we talk about daily in this program. Discipline is one of them and we will never compromise that for the sake of our program being as stable as possible, and unfortunately those kids haven’t met that expectation.”

*End of update


Breaking news out of Stillwater today as Mike Boynton announced in a release that sophomore Davon Dillard and freshman Zack Dawson have both been cut from the team.

The pair had been previously suspended in November this season for violating team rules.

Here is part of Boynton’s statement from a release:

“Being a part of Cowboy basketball has always and will always be an honor and a privilege. With the privilege comes great responsibilities and standards. Davon and Zach have failed to meet those standards, and at this time, it is necessary to move in a different direction.”

Dillard averaged 4.3 points per game to go along with 1.3 rebounds per game. Dawson, a former four-star recruit, averaged 4.4 ppg and 1.6 assists per game.

The announcement comes as a shock two days before the Cowboys will take on the No. 19 Florida State Seminoles in the Orange Bowl Classic in Sunrise, Florida.

Boynton is left with 12 players for the game, but will get a welcome boost. Junior transfer Yankuba Sima is now eligible for the Cowboys. The 6’11 forward from St. John’s was a mid-year transfer and had to sit out. Getting him back should help Boynton as the team transitions to life without Dillard and Dawson.

The exact reason that Boynton made the decision is not known. We will update the story as more information becomes available.

Davon Dillard, Zach Dawson No Longer Part of OSU Basketball Team | Pistols Firing

True freshman guard Zach Dawson and junior wing Davon Dillard are no longer part of the men’s basketball team, OSU announced on Friday.

According to a team release, the two failed to meet the standards of Oklahoma State.

“Being a part of Cowboy basketball has always and will always be an honor and a privilege,” Boynton said in a prepared statement. “With that privilege comes great responsibilities and standards. Davon and Zack have failed to meet those standards and at this point it is necessary to move in a different direction. We wish both of them all the best as they continue their academic and athletic careers.”

Dawson, a four-star point guard out of Florida, was averaging 4.4 points and 1.6 assists per game in his true freshman campaign, although his playing time was largely pinched in the rotation. Dillard, meanwhile, was expected to be a major contributor in 2017. As the third leading returning scorer from last season, however, his production fell across the board this season as he struggled to maintain a consistent impact that boosted him into a larger role in 2016.

Dillard was averaging a mere 8 minutes and 4.3 points per game this season. Both he and Dawson began the season on a suspension that was eventually lifted.

Mike Gundy’s Recruiting (Part 3) – The Web: Hotspots in OSU Recruiting | Pistols Firing

This is Part 3 of a six-part series on Oklahoma State recruiting that explores the relationships, the connections and the gold mines Mike Gundy has gone to over and over again in his time in Stillwater, USA.

Part 1 — The Road Map
Part 2 — Prospect Perspective


Almost 30 percent of all the players Mike Gundy has signed have come from five conglomerated counties.

The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex was the Oklahoma State coach’s first hub when he took over in 2005, and it remains his bread and butter 13 recruiting classes later. Texas in general has been a staple of the Gundy empire, and the statistics to back that claim up are absolutely astounding.

Texas

Note: Only scholarship players included in chart

Although those numbers are stunning, the success Gundy has instilled in Stillwater has turned his million-dollar drilling company into a billion-dollar international pipeline.

In 2010, Gundy signed a personal best 20 athletes from Texas. That was about three quarters of his entire recruiting class. A year later, that number leaped over 75 percent. Since then though, his numbers in the Lone Star State have significantly dropped, signing only seven Texans in 2016.

Texas #s

To better understand the reasoning behind the slip in Texas turnover, it’s important to put those numbers in context with the program. In 2011, OSU finished No. 3 in the nation and beat Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl, still probably the most famous win in school history. The recruiting class that followed had six fewer Texans, indicating a drop in dependency and a rise in Gundy’s sphere of influence.

As the brand and culture has grown with more TV exposure, good marketing and the boom of social media, the average number of Texans has plummeted from 15 (2005-14) to a hair over eight in the past three classes.

size.jpg

Inversely, the number of players coming from outside of Texas and Oklahoma, Gundy’s top two honey holes in recruiting, has been bumped up by four more out-of-state athletes per year, from six to 10 in those same intervals.

“Recruiting is still a people’s business even though it’s changed considerably, and it’s getting ready to change even more,” Gundy said, and there is certainly evidence of that.

Growing the Pipeline

In 2017 alone, OSU signed players from Utah, Michigan, Illinois, California, two from Tennessee, two from Georgia and one, a world champion sprinter, from Canada.

Some of those stories fall back on the business of recruiting, like Fua Leilua who was Gundy’s fourth signing out of Snow College outside of Salt Lake City, but many of them aren’t. J.D. King is an easy case study at the spread of the Gundy Effect on America.

King was a touted running back coming out of Fitzgerald High School in southern Georgia. That’s more than 1,000 miles away from the Stillwater campus, but OSU made the trip, and that was wise. King ended up holding 14 scholarship offers after National Signing Day from the likes of OSU, NC State, Minnesota and Cincinnati. He also had nine offers from SEC states.

Point being, it was strange for him to commit to any university in Oklahoma. Of course it has paid off, earning the No. 2 spot behind Justice Hill, but still an oddity in the Gundy era.

Georgia is Gundy’s most fruitful pipeline state outside of Texas and Oklahoma. Although many Georgian players indirectly make their way to OSU through junior colleges, like Chris Carson in 2015 or Tyreek Hill the year before, some have made the straight jump. King is the most obvious recent example, but Jelani Woods did it, too. So did Kirk Tucker, Naim Mustafaa and the Curry brothers.

Gundy’s history in the state runs well into his history. In 2006 he snagged Dantrell Savage out of a two-year school. In 2008, Beau Johnson came from Butler Community College, and Maurice Gray did the same thing.

The Nests

Gundy’s roots can be broken down to a micro scale.

Assistant coaches like cornerbacks coach Tim Duffie have made a name for themselves in particular regions of different states. Duffie is a mogul in D/FW. Joe DeForest used to run Houston, and offensive line coach Josh Henson has already proven able to recruit to the north.

Some areas have become more popular than others. The major cities near Stillwater are obviously big in the master web of OSU’s recruiting, but places like south central Oklahoma and east Texas in particular have become spots of interest on the map for the Cowboys.

Screen Shot 2017-12-14 at 8.12.07 AM.png

The 2007 recruiting class got the snowball rolling in the small cities of east Texas.

Skyscrapers are traded for pine trees and farmlands only a few hours outside of D/FW, but landing Kendall Hunter from John Tyler High School and Dez Bryant out of Lufkin were like industrializing an entire sector of the state from the OSU perspective.

Both went on to become All-Americans in Stillwater, and Gundy kept onto John Tyler, coming back for O-lineman Gerron Anthony and defensive end Eric Davis over the following half decade.

More than anything though, Hunter and Bryant spawned the bEAST Texas movement. Cowboy Backs coach Jason McEndoo has been tasked with manning the region since he was hired in early 2015, and he has returned to OSU with success, especially in the 2017 recruiting class.

In the same way there are hot spots, there are cold ones.

Gundy has earned zero signatures from the entirety of western Oklahoma and left arm of Texas. There have been a handful from the Texas panhandle and only three from the central plains part of the state, making up about 150 total counties. That’s three percent of a recruit per county over 13 possible years.

Fairly remarkable that even with Texas cities like Amarillo, El Paso, Midland and Lubbock, and Oklahoma towns like Lawton, Altus and Woodward, Gundy and his staff have pulled 74 athletes from five small counties in North Texas.

But maybe not. At DeSoto High School south of Dallas, coach Todd Peterman cited how easy it is for a coach to go from Lancaster to DeSoto to Duncanville to South Oak Cliff high schools in less than an hour and find at least four different recruits worthy of a scholarship offer. And that’s just one molecule of the metropolis.

J.W. Walsh, former OSU quarterback and current running backs coach at Abilene Christian, said as a coach, hitting “at least more than five” schools in a day is completely possible average to reach. Also, he said he felt like going to Denton Guyer gave him a leg up on someone from an hour west because of the ease of exposure, even in the days of Hudl and 247 Sports that try to level the playing field in that regard.

Walsh’s dad is still the coach at Guyer and said one drawback to living, playing and coaching in D/FW is the cookie-cutter recruiter. With assistant coaches going to so many different schools in one day, they start to give you the same generic speech they gave at the last high school, Walsh said.

OSU isn’t like that, Walsh said. They’re passionate, honest and transparent, and before I could finish asking whether that was common among Division I programs, he answered.

“No,” he said. “No, it’s not common.”

“There are some good recruiters in this country. There’s more bad recruiters in this country.”

Walsh said he tries to quiz coaches on their backgrounds to try to gauge the longevity of a program. With the nature of college football, assistants and coordinators are considered relics if they stick around for more than a couple of years. On Gundy’s staff, all but one assistant has been at OSU for more than three.

That goes a long way when you have to come back to the same schools year after year, he said.

“I like seeing the face and know that it’s Oklahoma State instead of having to look at his shirt real quick,” Walsh said.

Stamping the Brand

OSU is a brand that is starting to compare with the tops in the nation.

Of course if Gundy’s assistants can’t recruit Dallas or Houston, Oklahoma City or Tulsa, they’ll be “out of luck,” but with 44 percent of all signings coming from those four metros, “luck” is maybe even in excess.

There will always be a place for cultural fits, as I’ve written about in this series, like Tuttle and coach Brad Ballard.

Gundy will always seek out farm boys like James Washington in Stamford, Texas, or Cole Walterscheid in Muenster, Texas, while others balk. Innovations in recruiting such as 247 Sports and Hudl have revolutionized all aspects of recruiting and allowed for tiny towns like Forney, Texas, in the east to have two players commit to the same school hours away in the same recruiting class.

But while the Kris McCunes and Brendan Vaughns will always be there in Gundy’s back pocket, he has earned his seat at the table, Ballard said.

“Back in the 80s and 90s, they couldn’t just walk into any school in America and say, ‘We’re gonna make a play on this guy,’” Ballard said. “‘We’re gonna recruit this dude. I don’t care if LSU or USC or Alabama is recruiting him. We want him, and we’re gonna make a run at him.’

“I don’t think they’re there anymore. I think when Oklahoma State comes to talk to you as a recruit now, you better listen. They’re doing it as good as anyone.”

No Speeding Tickets

Virginia Tech will have its hands full with the breakneck pace Oklahoma State keeps – a problem they’re aware of.

The Cowboys, coached by Mike Gundy, move at as fast of a tempo as the Hokies have seen this year. Oklahoma State is averaging 2.74 plays per minute of possession, seventh nationally. To put that in perspective, Syracuse, which gave Tech fits last year, leads the country this season at 2.84. West Virginia’s 12th at 2.67.

The Hokies had their issues with the latter, allowing 592 yards, including 371 in the air, to the Mountaineers in what was a skin-of-their-teeth 31-24 victory back in Week 1. [Roanoke Times]

Fast pace and lots of creativity, all sorts of a Hokie headache is on the way.

General Appeal

Yahoo’s Pat Forde explains the novelty of the Camping World Bowl and gives his pick.

Why Watch: Because this is the best bowl matchup up to this point. To see Mike Gundy’s mullet one more time. And as an excuse to coordinate a Happy Hour with your friends.

Dash Pick: Oklahoma State 31, Virginia Tech 27. The Cowboys are 6-0 outside of Stillwater, and Orlando is definitely outside of Stillwater. Bud Foster will have a defensive game plan ready, but these are the best offensive skill players the Hokies have seen. [Yahoo Sports]

Camping World couldn’t have fallen into a better pairing (sans anything involving Notre Dame). A Happy Hour with the Cowboy offense will make for festive viewing.

OSU and NCAA Notes

Tramel says to move Bedlam back to Thanksgiving….Herbstreit thinks A&M will “be back (become) a power in two years”….Mason Rudolph picked fifth-most pro potential for a QB in the bowl games (ESPN In$ider)….Grades for this year’s coaching hires

The Reload: Mike Gundy Takes Helicopter to Recruit Dallas Metroplex | Pistols Firing

Mike Gundy’s recruiting escapades in Texas continued into Wednesday, as the OSU head coach made his way around the Dallas metroplex to check in on a number of OSU recruits and commits.

The first of the visits came with Dallas South Oak Cliff safety Kanion Williams, a three-star prospect who is one of many planning to sign in the Dec. 20 early signing period.

The next? A trip down to Sachse to see 2018 DE commit Tyler Lacy at Sachse High School, where defensive line coach Joe Bob Clements joined in on the effort to check on their edge-rushing high school phenom.

You’ll never believe it, but he also made quite the grand exit — you guessed it, via helicopter.

Gundy also stopped in to see 2018 athlete pledge Gabe Lemons — again via helicopter — this time in Coppell, Texas. Lemons is a three-star prospect expected to play cornerback for the Cowboys.

While all the visits are interesting in their own way, the visit of the day was Gundy’s trip to Rockwall-Heath to check on top cornerback target Tanner McCalister, a former Arkansas commit who has recently jumped back on the open market.

McCalister is a highly regarded corner with close to 20 scholarship offers, who is trending heavily in OSU’s direction since he backed away from his Razorbacks commitment. In addition to Sean-Michael Flanagan, McCalister is going to be a must-watch over the next week as the early signing period looms. It appears OSU is in a good spot here.

Mason Rudolph up for Inaugural Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award | Pistols Firing

Add another to the massive collection of awards Mason Rudolph and James Washington have been up for. After winning the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award in part for “character, citizenship, scholastic achievement, and leadership qualities,” Rudolph is a finalist for the Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the year Award.

The Jason Witten Award “recognizes exemplary leadership both on and off the field” and will be presented to one of the three finalists on February 22 in Frisco, Tex. Rudolph will be joined by Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick and UCF linebacker Shaquem Griffin.

“I am very excited to announce these three exceptional young men as the finalists for the inaugural Collegiate Man of the Year,” said Witten. “Minkah Fitzpatrick, Shaquem Griffin and Mason Rudolph are outstanding leaders on the field, in the classroom and in the community, and they embody what the sport of college football is all about.

“It was a nearly impossible task to choose just three from all of the great student-athletes nominated. There are so many outstanding leaders who are great representatives for college football, and I commend all of the nominees for the tremendous example they set on and off the field.”

Rudolph has an outside chance to become the first QB in Big 12 history that didn’t go to Texas Tech to throw for 5,000 yards in a season and will likely overtake Brandon Weeden for the most passing yards in a single season in Oklahoma State football history.

“Here’s what he’s done. He has been the most committed player to this team that I’ve ever seen,” said Mike Gundy earlier in the year. “Really, the organization. With his commitment to ‘I’m going to try to do the very best I can.’ Doesn’t guarantee you’re going to make all your throws. Doesn’t guarantee he’s going to misread something. Doesn’t mean that you might not throw an interception. But his commitment to success for his team and himself is through the roof.

“That’s what I shared with his mom and dad. I said, ‘All the other stuff is awesome, but what he’s done, you guys should be really proud of.’ I have three sons. I would only hope they would be that committed to some organization at some point in their life. Only hope. And he’s done it humble. He’s a low-ego guy, and he’s humble. I’m proud to watch him … he makes me proud. That’s what he does.”

High Noon Highlights (12/13): There is still something to play for in Orlando

Here are your Wednesday highlights!

It’s High Noon…

Also a live look at Stillwater as students are finishing up finals week:

There’s Still Something at Stake for Cowboy Football:

Even though this season fell short of expectations, Oklahoma State football can still reach a program milestone. With a win over Virginia Tech in the Camping World Bowl, the Cowboys will have three 10-win seasons in a row for the first time. Previous to this three year stretch, the best was from 1986-1988, when Oklahoma State went 26-9 during that span.

“That’s something I told the defense in our meeting,” said OSU safety Tre Flowers. “I know we wanted to win the Big 12, unfortunately we didn’t, but let’s go out with 10 wins.”

Braxtin Miller Earns Freshman of the Week Honors:

Coming off of the huge upset of UCLA on Friday, another Cowgirl basketball player was given a weekly award. The U.S. Basketball Writers Association gave Cowgirl freshman Braxtin Miller their Freshman of the Week award. Miller had a career-high 19 points, four rebounds, and two steals, all while playing 38 of a possible 40 minutes. Congrats Braxtin and go Cowgirls!!

Coach Gundy “Recruits” Jimmy Butler:

Jimmy Butler is one of the best shooting guards in the NBA, currently playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves. That however, did not stop Mike Gundy from trying (jokingly) to get him to strap it on for Cowboy football. Butler showed up to a game the other day wearing a Oklahoma State jersey with Dez Bryant’s college number on it, as well as his name on the back. Nice to see someone not affiliated with the school rocking the orange and black!

Happy Birthday, Rickie!

One of Stillwater’s proudest sons turns 29 today. Happy Birthday to our favorite golfer, Rickie Fowler! Here’s to another year of making our #golfschool proud!
