Oklahoma State Leads Big 12 in Net Points Per Drive by Wide Margin | Pistols Firing

Hey, it’s that time again. Time for old, curmudgeonly me to worship at the altar of points per drive. Won’t you join me? The Big 12 season is now 1/3 over, and there have been 416 drives in Big 12 games this season. As we start to gather more data, the best teams will emerge. […]

Unsung Hero: Baylor

It was an offensive onslaught in Stillwater on Saturday, with Oklahoma State beating Baylor 59-16. The Cowboys set a school record with 747 yards on offense, led by Mason Rudolph and James Washington (nothing new here). Rudolph threw for 459 yards and three touchdowns while adding another one with his legs, and Washington had two […]

Breaking Down the First Half of Mason Rudolph’s Senior Season (Part 1) | Pistols Firing

At the midpoint in the season, I thought it would be a good idea to evaluate the play of Mason Rudolph thus far six games in.   Preseason the expectations were sky high for Rudolph and the Oklahoma State offense, and so far they have delivered. I wanted to base this review off a previous […]

MVP Draft Recap: BayLLLLLLor

What a thorough beatdown of Baylor by Mason Rudolph and the Oklahoma State Cowboys, huh? What a great way to end America’s Greatest Homecoming. There are so many deserving players of MVP nods this week (not really from Baylor), it’s hard to pick just one. However, let’s try our best to do just that. Offense […]

Daily Bullets (October 18) | Pistols Firing

Happy birthday to my Dad, I had a great time watching OSU light up Baylor with you on Saturday. The Secret Sauce Mason Rudolph’s most helpful friend may not be James Washington, Aaron Cochran or Justice Hill… but receivers coach Kasey Dunn. Dunn takes a two- or three-star recruit because they fit the needs better […]

Watch: Get Your Chills from Josh Stewart’s Career Highlights | Pistols Firing

The absolute embarrassment of receiver talent that Oklahoma State has enjoyed during Mike Gundy’s tenure is almost unfair. But one of my favorite wideouts to ever wear orange is one we sometimes overlook. Josh Stewart wasn’t the biggest and he the wasn’t fastest but this guy would just make plays week in and week out. […]

Why College Football Is the Best Sport From Week to Week | Pistols Firing

After covering a long, slogging golf season that includes nearly as many tournaments as there are weeks in the year, college football is a reprieve for me. It’s 12-13 games in 15 weeks (plus bowl season), and boom, you’re done. The midpoint of the season always comes as a shock. Wait, didn’t we just start […]

Rickie Fowler on Stillwater and Oklahoma State: ‘It’s a Family’ | Pistols Firing

With the madness of Homecoming weekend, I hadn’t really had a great chance to see all of what Rickie Fowler said about his experience as the grand marshal last week. Hayden Barber wrote a great piece about how Fowler works to stay grounded despite his insane life that you should read, but his comments in […]

Pokes In the Pros: NFL Week 6

As the NFL season approaches the halfway mark, a group of former Oklahoma State Cowboys continue to perform on football’s biggest stage. Lenzy Pipkins (Packers) – Though he hadn’t played in three weeks, Pipkins made his presence felt in Green Bay’s loss to Minnesota. He had six total tackles and a pass defensed in his […]

Line Segment: OSU’s Defensive Line Gets Help in Adding Pressure | Pistols Firing

This was by far the most interesting defensive scheme prepared by Glenn Spencer in possibly his entire tenure at Oklahoma State. I think a lot of that stems from the fact that Spencer knows he needs to get pressure on the QB in the Big 12 to have a chance, and that issue needs to […]

High Noon Highlights 10/17: Can Mike Gundy continue his success against Texas?

It’s High Noon on this fine Tuesday, here are your Oklahoma State highlights! Bill Haisten of the Tulsa World wrote a great article about the recent success Mike Gundy and the Cowboys have had against Texas in recent years. Before 2010, the Cowboys were a mind-boggling 2-22 all time against the Longhorns. Since then, the […]
