And the creative ideas continue. This time, it’s Oklahoma State’s turn.
The Cowboys have launched a season ticket promo featuring new running backs coach Jemal Singleton.
Singleton, who coached the running backs at Air Force last season, may have lost a rock-paper-scissors throw down with new wide receivers coach, Kasey Dunn.
In the video, Singleton does the dirty work, calling out the Oklahoma State fans.
He says, “We can’t win games without our fans. There are no ifs, ands, buts about it. We can recruit the best, we can coach those players better than any other coaches in the nation, but without our fans in the stands…we’re just not going to get it done.”
“Coaches can do their part. Players can do their part. But we need fans to do their part.”
“We need an environment at Boone Pickens Stadium, when the team walks out of the locker room, they know they’re going to have 60,000 orange clad fans breathing down their neck. The average fan sometimes doesn’t realize how important they are to us winning games.”
“As a program, if we want to win the Big 12 championship, if we want to go to a BCS bowl game, if we want to take that huge leap and play in a national championship game, we need 60,000 fans at every home game to help make this happen.”
Here’s the video. Although it certainly doesn't reach the level of Nick Saban's speech from two years ago, nonetheless it’s good stuff, so check it out.
