Happy Tuesday everyone.

Good afternoon everyone! It’s high noon.

While you are hopefully not pigging out quite like Mr. Bean there, here’s some news for you to enjoy with lunch.

Mason Rudolph has BIG hands.

Today was the official measurement day at the Senior Bowl. While Rudolph won’t actually be participating in the game due to an injury, he still got his measurements for the NFL scouts and execs, along with James Washington and Marcell Ateman.

That’s right. Rudolph’s hands are bigger than Ateman’s - his favorite red-zone target. Apparently some people thought Rudolph had small hands. That’s clearly not the case.

No. 16 Women’s Tennis Sweeps Wyoming

The women are off to a hot start in the 2018 season, picking up their second consecutive sweep to start 3-0.

Up next, the No. 16 Cowgirls will host the ITA Kickoff Weekend at Greenwood Tennis Center. No. 24 Arizona State will put their own undefeated (1-0) record on the line starting at 4 p.m. Friday. The winner of that match will take on the winner of TCU/Ole Miss Saturday at 3 p.m. for a spot in the ITA National Indoor Championships.

Soccer Complex Update

It was announced last Spring that Cowgirl soccer would be updating their admittedly rudimentary stadium.

Here’s a few pictures I took yesterday of the progress. You can see the renderings of what the final stadium is supposed to look like through the link above.

OSU was “best gateway to NFL” for Rudolph

In last week’s interview with Jim Rome, Mason Rudolph explained why he picked OSU over the LSU Tigers.

“I had a great relationship with Coach Miles and that staff,” Rudolph told Rome, “but at the end of the day I didn’t want to hand the ball off to Leonard Fournette. I wanted to throw the ball around at Oklahoma State and play in an explosive offense with Coach Gundy and Coach Yurcich. That was the decision I made.

“I felt like it was the best gateway to the NFL.”

Guerin Emig of the Tulsa World expounded on this statement. I don’t want to spoil the article too much, but let’s just say the stats back up Rudolph’s claim. Sure the SEC sends plenty of talent to the NFL, but QBs? Not so much.

That’s it for today folks. Have a great day and Go Pokes!
