It’s high noon...

Calvin Bundage makes return:

After missing the last year with a back injury, Calvin Bundage’s return to football has been a welcomed site. Bundage has high expectations for his fifth season on the Cowboys defense. Teammate Calvin Murray told the Tulsa World:

“Him getting back, just seeing him move around in fall camp is a great sight to see,” Murray said. “You can just tell he’s in shape now and moving around fluidly, and it just makes our defense better with him on it. Him being back, I like it. Calvin brings a different type of mentality to the defense, and it makes a big difference for us.” {Tulsa World}

Cowgirl F.C, starts practicing:

Ben Hutchens of the O’Colly caught with women’s soccer soccer coach Colin Carmichael to talk about how his team is dealing with the new challenges they face practicing for their 2020 season.

Practice this year looks much different than it has in years past. Players are wearing masks when they go to the field, warming up and when they gather up to talk. They only take them off when they begin training on the field. Instead of using the locker room, each player has a cube out by the field to store any items they might need. The players are also tasked with bringing their own water, towel, practice shirt and even sunscreen.

“Anything that could be shared we’re not sharing,” said Carmichael.

Carmichael feels great about the environment his staff has helped create to keep his team safe saying:

“I personally feel the safest when I’m asleep in bed or at Neal Patterson Stadium.” {O’Colly}

Who will step up on offensive line?:

Scott Wright of the Oklahoman details who he thinks will be next man up for the OSU offensive line.

“We’ll have some young guys that are gonna play for the first time,” coach Mike Gundy said. “Guys that are young aren’t going to play as good as experienced guys. The one thing we talk about all the time in our program is you never know when your chance is gonna be there.”

With the depth of talent OSU has recruited on the offensive line over the last few years, young players are primed to step into starting jobs.

Of last year’s primary starters, only Teven Jenkins remains, and he’s making the move from right to left tackle. Next to him, West Virginia graduate transfer Josh Sills has settled into his new surroundings, and was a second-team All-Big 12 selection in 2018.{Oklahoman}

Max Duggan possibly out for the season at TCU

Ehlinger wants to leave program better than he found it.
