first_imgKarl O’Kane’s statement regarding Ryan McHugh being the best player currently in the country without an All-star got us thinking in the Donegal Daily office.We asked ourselves who was the best Donegal player to never win an All-Star over the last twenty-years? Some of the names touted in the office were Manus Boyle, who missed out on one in 92 – despite scoring nine points in Donegal’s All-Ireland Final win over Dublin.Some of the others mentioned were Eamon McGee, Brendan Devenney, Damien Diver, Christy Toye and Declan Bonner.So we thought we’d ask our readers to see who they though were very unlucky not to win an All-Star in the last twenty-five years.Post the name of the player you feel is most deserving on our Facebook thread, and we’ll see who the GAA fraternity in Donegal think was the best player in the last twenty-five years to never win an All-Star.  OPINION: WHO IS THE BEST DONEGAL PLAYER TO NEVER WIN AN ALL-STAR? was last modified: February 1st, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click 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 share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:All StardonegalGAAnewsopinionpollSportlast_img read more

Oklahoma State Looks for Eleventh 5-0 Start in 114 Football Seasons

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. It’s a rarity for Oklahoma State to win its first five games. Historically, anyway. It’s only happened 10 times in the 114-year history of Oklahoma State football. If OSU beats Kansas State on Saturday, that would mark the fourth time Mike Gundy has done it since taking over in 2005.The other seasons Gundy’s teams have done it were all pretty memorable — 2008 (Oregon Holiday Bowl), 2010 (Arizona Alamo Bowl) and 2011 (no explanation necessary).Still, it’s a schedule that’s backloaded so 5-0 might not mean what it normally would to a college football team. OSU’s schedule thus far has been, well, pretty bad. Still, a win over KSU would further propel the momentum that’s already been set in motion.AdChoices广告“They are obviously a well-coached team,” said Mason Rudolph on Monday. “They’re always going to be in the right place at the right time. I’ve seen some film and learned a lot about them last year and was able to see them go through the game plan there. They’re well-coached, very athletic and a high energy team. It’s going to be great to play at home in front of a good crowd and take the next step forward.”last_img read more
