Mike Gundy led Oklahoma State through a “thud” (no tackle to the ground) scrimmage on Saturday night.
Gundy said, “That was one of the best scrimmages we've had here in seven years. That was a lot of fun for me as a coach to see our guys compete. We had 160, maybe 170 plays when you count special teams.”
“I was really encouraged by both sides of the ball. I don't think we turned the ball over. We didn't give up too many big plays on defense. We had a lot of effort. Saw some young guys make some plays. I mean, it was just a lot of fun, being out there for 2 1/2 hours.”
Gundy is pleased with the defensive backs and went as far to say, “Since I’ve been here, it’s the most depth we’ve ever had in the back end.”
The Cowboys will host UL-Lafayette to start the season. The road schedule includes at Tulsa, at Texas A&M, at Texas, at Missouri, at Texas Tech, and at Iowa State.
