Oklahoma State University Undergraduate Enrollment Reaches All-Time High

first_imgOklahoma State has released its enrollment numbers for the fall 2016 semester and the Stillwater campus has reached an all-time high, at 20,277 (70 more students than the fall 2015 semester.) The total undergrad enrollment combining the Stillwater and Tulsa campuses also broke the previous record, at 21,093 students, according to the Oklahoman.Oklahoma State President Burns Hargis presented the numbers to the meeting of the Board of Regents several weeks ago, explaining that despite a 16 percent budget cut for higher education, tuition was only raised 7 percent.“I think this demonstrates not only do we have record enrollment and record fundraising, but we also are maintaining a lower cost than everybody in the Big 12 and way below the average land grant university,” Hargis said.This is actually probably pretty close to accurate. According to College Tuition Compare (can’t believe that’s a real site), it’s a battle between OSU, OU and Iowa State for cheapest in-state tuition. Or it was in 2015. The numbers have not been updated to reflect 2016 figures.screen-shot-2016-09-21-at-4-04-27-pmAdditionally, Hargis stressed how vital Oklahoma State continues to be for the state’s overall economy.“We bring in from out of state $340 million a year,” Hargis told the Oklahoman. “Any economist would multiple that by 3 to 5 times. It’s well over a billion dollars in impact.” While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Justice Hill Named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week

first_imgFollowing a breakout performance this weekend in Waco, true freshman tailback Justice Hill has been named the Big 12 newcomer of the week. Hill finished with over 6 yards per carry and 122 rushing yards in a losing effort Saturday — the most for a true frosh since the league was formed:[email protected]_ is Big 12 Newcomer of the Week.

Rudolph says Vincent Taylor Showed ‘Madden Awareness Rating of 99’ on Lateral TD

first_imgVincent Taylor has deservedly earned a ton of praise this weekend following his multi-block performance this weekend against the Longhorns. But it was his first block, specifically, that drew rave reviews from teammates including Mason Rudolph after the game. Rudolph, who apparently knows a thing or two about Madden, said his awareness rating spiked big time during the heads up play to block the kick and pitch it to his teammate Tre Flowers for a score:Vincent Taylor (@BallOut_96) showed a ‘Madden awareness rating of 99’ on his pitch to Tre Flowers (@_Slimm7) after a blocked PAT. #OKState pic.twitter.com/L5x23zweUs— Nate Feken (@TheGreat_Nate) October 2, 2016 “He flipped it just like those guys that played at OU in the 70’s and 80’s,” Mike Gundy said about his star defensive tackle’s game-changing play. “I mean he just tossed it right out there, thumb down, just like they taught us at Midwest City High School.” While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Mason Rudolph Climbs Record Books At Oklahoma State

first_imgOn Sunday I looked at where James Washington stands statistically from an historical perspective at Oklahoma State. His numbers pop. He has an outside chance at every receiving record ever although I think total catches and total yards will ultimately be out of his reach.Part of this is because OSU (like most teams in 2016) throws it as much or more than it ever has. That means there’s someone else on the verge of etching his name high in the record books in Stillwater. Let’s look at where Mason Rudolph ranks currently in OSU QB history halfway through his junior year with 21 starts and 22 games played.Attempts: No. 6Brandon Weeden (1,103)Mike Gundy (1,078)Zac Robinson (999)Tone’ Jones (819)Josh Fields (815)Mason Rudolph (742)If he stays through his senior year and plays every game, Rudolph will be around 300 ahead of Weeden and nearly 400 ahead of Mike Gundy. That is crazy.Completions: No. 4Brandon Weeden (767)Mike Gundy (636)Zac Robinson (610)Mason Rudolph (456)Rudolph should reach the 600 mark by the end of the season.Completion Percentage: No. 3Brandon Weeden (69.5)J.W. Walsh (63.1)Mason Rudolph (61.5)I think it’s important to remember to take some of these numbers in context. That is, Mike Gundy and Josh Fields weren’t afforded the short throws that Rudolph and Walsh get to boost that completion percentage.Yards: No. 4Brandon Weeden (9,260)Mike Gundy (8,473)Zac Robinson (8,317)Mason Rudolph (6,659)Josh Fields (6,090)He should pretty easily go down as the only 10,000-yard passer in OSU history if he stays through 2017.TDs: No. 5Brandon Weeden (75)Zac Robinson (66)Mike Gundy (57)Josh Fields (55)Mason Rudolph (40)I’m surprised that Gundy and Fields had that many. Zac too for that matter.Yards per game: No. 1Mason Rudolph (302)Brandon Weeden (299)Mike Gundy (193)Josh Fields (190)Zac Robinson (185)Wow. This one was the most stunning. And Rudolph’s number would be even higher if you didn’t have to count the OU game last year in which he played and threw for zero yards.Yards per attempt: No. 1Mason Rudolph (9.0)Brandon Weeden (8.4)Zac Robinson (8.3)J.W. Walsh (8.3)Donovan Woods (8.2)Donovan! This is your sort of normalization for the fact that Rudolph throws a lot more than Gundy, Fields and the rest did. He’s doing it more effectively than all of them even at a higher volume. This is also impressive because No. 2 is having trouble finding space downfield.“A lot of teams are trying to take away the deep threat from us because we are so lethal down the field,” said Rudolph on Saturday. “They are throwing different looks at us that we haven’t seen in the previous five games of the season. I have to give the credit to our coaching staff for making great adjustments at halftime and making sure that we have some schemes to work with to execute and we executed well.”300-yard games: No. 2Brandon Weeden (16)Mason Rudolph (9)J.W. Walsh (5)Zac Robinson (5)Josh Fields (5)Again, it’s a different game, but Rudolph is still historically impressive through two and a half years. Statistically, he will go down as one of the best ever at OSU if he stays through his senior season. I’m not sure he will ever be beloved the way Brandon Weeden and Zac Robinson were, but he is certainly in Weeden’s league in terms of numbers.Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph picked apart Iowa State’s defense from a clean pocket on 42 of his 47 dropbacks in the Cowboys’ win: pic.twitter.com/ijE8TxWy0Z— PFF College (@PFF_College) October 9, 2016He’s also not throwing picks. Weeden had 27 in 30 games or around one a game. Rudolph has just 15 so far in 22 games and only four in the friendly confines of Boone Pickens Stadium.It’s true that Rudolph might not be as good as we would have liked through six games this season, but don’t confuse his ceiling with the ceiling of any of these other guys. At 16-5 as a starter, with the running game he’s had for most of two and a half years, he’s one of OSU’s all-time greats even if he never throws another pass.

Iowa State Had a 92 Percent Chance Of Beating OSU Near End of Third Quarter

ESPN has a great metric on their gamecast page which shows a running win probability throughout the course of a game. This tracks the possibility of the most likely win at any given point in time and even allows users to scroll over the timeline of the game and see each play corresponding to the current win probability. The probability chart for this past week’s ISU-OSU game is really an interesting one and deserves a second look and bit of analysis.screen-shot-2016-10-11-at-1-17-00-pmAs you can see, OSU is favored pretty heavily for most of the game, but Iowa State is has a 92 percent chance of winning with just under 18 minutes left. I’ll run through several thoughts to take away from this:• OSU is still projected to win down 17-14 after halftime. I’m not sure about all of you, but I attended the game and (ashamedly now) quite loudly declared “I can’t believe we’re going to lose to 1-4 Iowa State” midway through the second quarter I did not have as much faith in the Pokes as the metric. No one around me had any inclination but agreement with me at the time.• At their high point, ISU had a 92.2 percent chance of victory. 92.2 percent!!!• After the final Rudolph to Washington TD, OSU had a 92.5 percent chance to win while still kicking the ball back to the Cyclones and having to deal with another end-of-game #math debacle. I, in no way, shape, or form felt like we were that close to victory in light of recent, repressed memories.• This somewhat give me even more faith in Gundy, who obviously trusts his team. After the game he was asked if he was nervous being down and responded with the following.“Not really, because we can score fast. If we were in a conventional offense, we would have been in trouble. We have the ability to score really fast, and we have playmakers that can pick up big chunks of yards. I didn’t feel that way, but I didn’t feel very good either.”He’s right that we can score in a hurry which is great for these metrics, but is also terrible for my blood pressure and peace of mind.• This may not be a perfect way of looking at games, but it can open up some interesting discussion and is a bit more consistent than human opinion. I often get caught up in the immediacy of each moment and what I’m feeling. [quick cut to the inner thoughts in my brain] “Why would we take a knee?? We’re DEFINITELY going to lose now” meanwhile by the data OSU has a 99.8 percent chance of winning.Talk about short-sightedness and a lack of belief in the coaches and players. Perspective may be the most difficult part of fandom — each win and loss is the “greatest” or “worst” moment of our week, month, year, life, etc…. Hopefully taking a step back and looking at some fact-based data will help us to enjoy the team we have, trust our coaches (even when we are standing on our chairs screaming at them in disagreement at the time), and appreciate the game not just for the number in the win column, but for the joy and agony that comes throughout the course a game while supporting a team and school close to our hearts.Bonus: I guess computers aren’t always right? Or is it maybe, JUST MAYBE, possible that there is some human error involved here? I don’t want to jump to conclusions but the time, score, and probability stand out to me a bit…..screen-shot-2016-10-11-at-1-15-48-pmlast_img read more

Building Bridges

first_img ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read: Posted on January 1, 2011June 20, 2017By: Anna Dion, Young Champion of Maternal HealthClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)This blog post was contributed by Anna Dion, one of the fifteen Young Champions of Maternal Health chosen by Ashoka and the Maternal Health Task Force at EngenderHealth. She will be blogging about her experience every month, and you can learn more about her, the other Young Champions, and the program here.Perhaps because of my background in engineering, I have a tendency to use bridge-building metaphors in describing my work. However, these days, my bridges are symbolic rather than the bricks and mortar of my past.Over the past months, I have been preparing a reference manual for the pilot of a training course for birth companions to pregnant adolescents that will begin in February. This will be a key milestone within my Young Champion Fellowship, as we will be using this course as a pilot to adapt further trainings for other community health posts, and it will also graduate a first cohort of birth companions in the municipality of Pilar in the Province of Buenos Aires. We are hoping that this training will prepare these young volunteers to build a space for young women to make informed choices about their own pregnancy, delivery and early parenting choices.These graduates will be the true ‘bridge-builders’ in the months and years to come. With the program’s support, these volunteers will help close the gap between the birthing experience that women hope for and the reality that they often face. The training course includes basic information on changes and care during pregnancy, labor and delivery from both the laboring women’s perspectives as well as those providing care, as well as a information on the rights of parents and children in childbirth as described by Argentine law. Woven throughout the course is an emphasis on interpersonal communication, as these volunteers will be challenging the status quo amongst their peers, within their communities and across the different levels of the health system.In preparing these materials and foundations for the program, I have also begun building my own bridges in trying to translate what I have learned through my current work in Argentina to my upcoming challenges in developing my program in Canada. In addition to learning how to develop, deliver and adapt a training course, I am learning how to encourage leadership and critical thinking in others—hoping that we can create a new generation of ‘change agents’ in maternal health.I have also learned valuable lessons about the potential role of private sector involvement in funding and advocating for social programs. My mentor and Ashoka Fellow, Alberto Vazquez, has built an impressive variety of private sector supporters for his NGO SAHDES, without compromising the vision and objectives of the NGO’s work. Particularly as so many of the issues to be addressed in maternal health are steeped in cultural, religious and social value systems, I think that this will be a key tool for me in all of the bridge-building in my future.Share this:last_img read more

No More Reckless Policy Reversals – Finance Minister

first_imgThe Minister noted that anyone who is interested in reversing these gains should face the overwhelming number of Jamaican people whose lives have been made better because of this.“We’ve experienced a lot of positive change coming out of our economic reform, and we will continue with the policies that have generated this unprecedented period of opportunity for Jamaica,” said Mr. Clarke.“For too long throughout our history, we have been in what we call ‘policy volatility’. We have borne too much, come too far. The fruits of our sacrifice are much too evident for us to jump on policy reversal,” he added.He further explained that the capital expenditure that Jamaica is able to execute today is 100 per cent more than the capital expenditure that was executed three or four years ago. Spending on social support is also 60 per cent higher, he noted.Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Dr. the Hon. Nigel Clarke (left), utilises the technologically assisted service while on a tour of the new Victoria Mutual Fairview Financial Centre after the opening in Montego Bay, St. James, on Wednesday, April 24.

Nigel Clarke, says the country’s days of being subjected to reckless forms of policy reversals to the detriment of the local people and the economy are over. He pointed out that more than 100,000 Jamaicans have joined the workforce over the period, and this is a direct result of a more prosperous economy brought on by Government’s policy infrastructure. “Those are tangible gains for more economic reform programmes,” said the Minister.Mr. Clarke congratulated the financial institution, noting that “you (VM Group) being here is going to invite a response from your competition, which is good, because at the end of the day, the people of Jamaica are the beneficiaries”.The new location is equipped with conveniences and technology that will improve members’ experience as they benefit from the full suite of financial services offered by the VM Group in one complex.

Mens lacrosse Ohio State looks to continue success against Detroit

Ohio State senior attackman Austin Shanks surveys the defense against Furman at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on Feb. 5. OSU won 12-6. Credit: Gene Ross | Senior Lantern reporterThe 1-0 Ohio State Buckeyes will host the Detroit Mercy Titans on Saturday at noon at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center in an attempt to build off last week’s win over Furman. It’s the Titans’ first game of the year.Last year, the Buckeyes defeated Detroit in a formidable victory, 16-5. Then-junior midfielders J.T. Blubaugh and Johnny Pearson had four and two goals, respectively.Titans senior goalie Jason Weber, who saved 18 shots in last year’s game, was nominated when as a 2017 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference preseason All-Conference selection.OSU redshirt senior midfielder Tyler Pfister and coach Nick Myers said they are familiar with Weber and his skill set, which will present challenges to the OSU offense. Myers pointed to OSU’s ability to move the ball and getting off quick, quality shots as two keys to beating Weber.“We have a lot of respect for their goalie,” Pfister said. “He’s a veteran guy who takes control of that defense. We just want to focus on the things we know we need to work on as far as shooting and getting in the reps we need to.” The Titans attack is led by junior attackman Mark Anstead, who was last year’s team leader in points. He had eight more assists than the next highest total on the team.Last week, OSU opened up its season with a barrage of offense that exploded in the second quarter. The Buckeyes knocked out Furman’s goalie from the game by halftime and cruised to a 12-6 victory. Pearson led eight Buckeye scorers with four goals. For that display of offensive dominance to continue against Detroit, Pfister said that there can only be individual success on offense when everyone is doing their job offensively and defensively. “It’s not just one guy going out there taking over the game more times than not,” Pfister said. “The defense can do their job because the offense is doing their job and the offense can do their job because the defense is doing their job.”Detroit ended its season last year at 2-10, but Myers said the team brings a lot of intensity to the field and that it’s important for the Buckeyes to identify the Titans key players. “They got some big-time shooters in their line up who we’re going to have to contend with,” he said. Last year, the Buckeyes’ defense and redshirt senior goalie Tom Carey limited the Titans to only five goals. Carey had 10 saves in last year’s game against the Detroit Titans. Last Sunday, Carey saved 11 shots against Furman. Junior midfielder Bo Lori said the defense wants to continue to give Carey the support he needs in net. “We’ve got to work together and play as seven. If we are all working together and recovering well, we’ll give him the shots he wants to see,” Lori said. read more

Recruits still streaming into Columbus for Ohio State Meyer

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer picked up two more recruits Monday. Defensive end recruits Joey Bosa and Lewis Neal verbally committed to play for the Buckeyes starting in the 2013 season. Bosa, a 6-foot-4, 255-pound junior from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. is ranked as the No. 14 overall player by recruiting website Rivals.com and the No. 2 strong side defensive end. During his junior year at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, he compiled eight sacks and 18 tackles for loss. He also had scholarship offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State and Michigan. From his Twitter account, @jbbigbear, he tweeted, “I’m gunna destroy people this year I feel sorry for who ever I go against.” He also tweeted a picture of a silver bullet. Neal is a 6-foot-1, 232-pound weakside defensive end from Wilson, N.C., Rivals.com ranks him as the No. 16 player at his position. He also had scholarship offers from Clemson, Purdue, Tennessee and South Carolina. Neal and Bosa are the 12th and 13th recruits for OSU’s 2013 class, and their commitments come less than a week after Meyer bagged his first quarterback recruit for the 2013 class. Quarterback prospect J.T. Barrett, out of Rider High School in Wichita Falls, Texas, verbally committed Wednesday. As Meyer’s first quarterback signee, Barrett is expected to compete with 2012 signee Cardale Jones to eventually replace current rising sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller. The Buckeyes’ 2011 regular season begins Sept. 1 against Miami (Ohio) at Ohio Stadium. read more
