It’t high noon (on the west coast?) ...

Boynton has the tools off the court:

The O’Colly looked at the character of Mike Boynton. It talks about how the men’s basketball head coach has character in his tool belt.

“I really thought when this happened, ‘Alright he’s going to be pillaged,”’ Stadium’s Jeff Goodman told the O’Colly. “Because every kid can go and play right away. It’s that rule if you have a postseason ban everybody can go. And I thought Isaac Likekele was history and now he’s going to come back.”

However, as is with many NCAA decisions, people stood on different sides of the aisle when it came to the effects on OSU’s roster.

“It didn’t strike me that a one-year postseason ban was going to lead to a mass exodus,” Fox’s Aaron Torres said. “I know that was the reaction of other college basketball writers and experts, but that was never really my thing. I think most of these guys are in it for the long haul. A lot of them are two, three or four-year college players and I think part of it is the respect out of coach Boynton too.” {O’Colly}

Scott Wright joins Pint Glass Football:

The OSU Football beat writer joined the podcast to talk about the upcoming season. Including what running back Chuba Hubbard working on his pass catching.

Basketball measurements:

PFB discussed the measurements of the new guys on the basketball team.

Rondel Walker’s height was also eye-popping. Recruiting services list Walker at 6-2. Walker tweeted out Friday that he came in at 6-5, 175 pounds. That three inches can make quite the difference for the off-ball guard from Putnam City-West.

The 175 pounds threw up a few flags, and while he will likely need to add some weight in the coming years, Dustin Ragusa pointed out in The Chamber that OKC Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is listed at 6-5, 180 pounds. {Pistols Firing}
