Exactly. Quit blaming it on construction and have it at Pioneer Stadium.

Eons ago, Sooner coach Barry Switzer was told Oklahoma State was returning 20 starters from the previous year’s team.

Switzer replied, “Good.”

Having a bunch of offensive linemen returning from a season where we couldn’t run the ball is not necessarily a good thing. I’m willing to wait and see what the philosophical change will mean, i.e. ridding ourselves of the ballet-dance zone blocking.


On a few occasions this past season, Mike Gundy has mentioned how the Oklahoma State offense is fairly simple to get a grasp of for everyone but quarterbacks. — Yes, and fairly simple for defensive coordinators too when your playbook is only 5 pages.

When’s the last time we had a spring game, 2010?

Well, I’d happily take what we’ve had the last few years over this 30 minute meet and greet garbage we’re getting this year.

I agree. Gumby pretty soon is going to wrap dudes in bubble wrap before practices and games at the rate he’s going. Little wonder we can win the trenches. I get preventing injuries but quite a long time between end of spring practice and practices in the summer.

Should be sufficient enough for the administration to give him a contract extension and big pay increase.

You’re quite the optimist, I got 4-8 but need to look at the schedule closer…I know it’s pretty easy compared to what was possible!

Up to 8.5 million w/ the annual $1 mill retaining bonus? :joy: :joy: :joy:

No Texas, Baylor, TCU, or Texas Tech. That’s why I would take 7-5 into account. To be quite honest with next season’s schedule we really shouldn’t be any worse than 9-3. Then again I don’t trust our coaching staff fully either.

I actually revised my prediction to 7-5, lol. We play like we did against UCA and I’m gonna go back to my original prediction, when I didn’t know the schedule. :joy_cat:
