Very cool helmets for Senior Day!! #osufbequipmentcrew pic.twitter.com/Em8Gjt3JvA— Robert Allen (@RAllenGoPokes) November 12, 2016• Tim Brando was more concerned about Mahomes getting to 4,000 yards than I was about my children speaking their first words.• I felt like Tech had 25 third and ones in the first half.• Three straight drives of 75 yards that resulted in TDs. Impressive.• The Jalen McCleskey fumble was almost a back-breaker. It let Tech tie the game at 28 at the end of the first half. Games like these with big boy offense mean that single turnovers can completely flip games. OSU flipped it back when Vincent Taylor picked up a loose ball in the fourth quarter thankfully, but it’s strange that McCleskey (of all people!) could have provided the mistake that cost you as a two-TD favorite at home.• Oklahoma State’s 605 yards were the fifth-most a team has gained on Tech this year. Fifth!• For how disciplined Kliff seems to be, his team seem pretty undisciplined. They get an average of 68 penalty yards per game, but were only clipped for 15 yards on Saturday. Of course OSU had 80 penalty yards.• We got the full Gundy tonight.Gundy looks incredible right now. The full mullet flow. The old throwback sweatshirt. Big 12 title on the line. pic.twitter.com/pHfMDE5Pde— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 12, 2016• Tech’s receivers had a lot of drops. Kliff must love that.• Justice Hill was in 5th grade the last time Tech won. He was four years old the last time Tech won in Stillwater (also, Kliff was the QB the last time Tech won in Stillwater).• Tim Brandon calling Texas Tech “bush league” for not including a player who switched numbers on its numerical roster was pretty humorous to me.• Vincent Taylor could have run through that hole Rennie Childs ran through in the second half. Mah gosh.• Tech finished 11/20 on third and fourth down. I wouldn’t expect anything less from Tech, but that was pretty frustrating to watch.• From our Slack chat: How much does Patty Mahomes look like Yeah Yeah from Sandlot?!• OSU didn’t close like I would have thought in the fourth quarter. I really thought the depth was going to shine through late, but Tech scored on its final three drives.• Jordan Sterns had a tremendous final game at BPS. Eight tackles and two TFLs. Gonna miss that dude.• Tre Flowers going with the Carolina blue mouthpiece was interesting.• Vincent Taylor has better hands than Rashaun Woods (probably).• I thoroughly enjoyed the play where Pat Mahomes would step forward towards his center and hit a quick-slanting WR over the middle. I wish Oklahoma State would implement that.• Wut?Pretty insane number here for The President. pic.twitter.com/FqwfNUw7Z3— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 13, 2016• I still think Gundy needs to hire an end-of-game clock manager. You could pay him $500,000, and he would have already made you money this season!• This was tremendous.Awesome look at the #okstate band honoring the military with a purple heart at halftime. pic.twitter.com/QNujlSyAt8— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 12, 2016 I pounded out my 10 thoughts on the Oklahoma State-Texas Tech game here, but we need to get to the notebook. Tons to talk about. Mason Rudolph, James Washington, Chris Lacy, Chris Carson. All the Chris’. All the storylines. Let’s get to work.• My first note was: “How many stops do you need against Texas Tech?” The answer is apparently six as long as they miss the extra point at the end. OSU’s defense faced 13 Tech drives. It got six stops and gave up six TDs and a FG.• Pat Mahomes looked like he was running around on Seth Russell’s leg. What was up with that? If he’s playing with an injury as severe as it appeared, he’s even more of a gamer than I thought (and I already thought he was a massive gamer).• Three straight three-and-outs for Tech to start the game against OSU in the same week Donald Trump was elected president. What a time to be alive. OSU took advantage (sort of), but it really felt like you needed three TDs on those three drives. They only got two.• I like the bandana print on the arm sleeves and socks. I don’t like it on the helmets.• I wish I was as good at anything as Mason Rudolph is at throwing comeback sideline routes.• One of the announcers referred to James Washington as “a high hip guy.” I have no idea what this means, but I feel extremely confident that I am not a “high hip guy.”• Definitely was said.”I own you, Kliff. And I know you want my hair.” pic.twitter.com/93BXu043hH— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 13, 2016• It has to be so difficult for things to not go your way when you aren’t Iowa State or Kansas bad, but it feels like every 50/50 ball turns against you. I want Kliff to succeed because he seems like a hard-working dude, but it has to be brutal to be a Tech fan right now.• Tech’s first first down was Mahomes running for it on 4th down on its fourth drive. Little panicky early, eh? What was the last time Tech started a game with four straight three and outs?• Tech had 35 first downs. That’s the most OSU has given up since the TCU game last season when it gave up 36. Also, Tech ran 96 plays to OSU’s 66. That’s insane.• Why doesn’t Tech go full Kingsbury? Go for two after every TD, onside kick every time and never punt on a fourth down. This makes sense, doesn’t it?• It seems unfathomable that one unit in one conference could be as bad as Tech’s defense is.• A game like this seems so mentally draining on offense because of how much you have to grind and feel the pressure to score on every possession. I thought OSU did a good job of staying engaged on offense. It probably helps that you know you’re going to put up video game numbers if you’re even remotely involved.• The helmets look better like this than they did on the field.
