COACH AND PROGRAM
Last season the Oklahoma State Cowboy world was filled with revelations of all kinds. We learned that alumnus and benefactor T. Boone Pickens is what financial analysts call really, really loaded. We found out then-quarterback Bobby Reid and his mom are close. We learned that coach Mike Gundy was 40. And that he was a man.
Nothing earth shattering, perhaps, and pretty
trivial when you get right down to it, but interesting nonetheless.
We learned other things as well, things that didn't get the same big point-size headlines but are certainly more enlightening and of direct import on the rise or fall of the Cowboys' football program in '08.
We learned that the Cowboys' offense has weapons, on the ground and in the air.
We learned that Zac Robinson is an excellent quarterback who may well end up breaking many of his head coach's school records.
