I'm sure Jimmythegreek will wonder why he isn't using that money to pay recruits and fund hookers and blow to their younger brothers to get them interested in the program.
Nah.....that’s way down on the list of reasons why Gundy will never sniff a championship of any sorts besides getting lucky with a walk on QB which took him awhile to see that he should start. That was clearly a fluke.

You really want to rehash that lame BS?

STILLWATER — A year ago, Jelani Woods arrived in Stillwater with the thought he could be Mason Rudolph’s successor as Oklahoma State’s quarterback.

A strong-armed, 6-foot-7 prospect, Woods picked OSU over programs like Louisville, Michigan and South Carolina. His size and athletic ability — Woods was a basketball talent in high school, too — made him one of the more intriguing quarterback prospects to choose OSU in recent years.

A year later, Woods is as close to getting on the field for OSU as he has ever been.

It comes as a bulked-up tight end wearing No. 89.

Oklahoma State’s spring game is not for another two weeks. But don’t expect a concert announcement anytime soon.

The Cowboys will still include their typical fan events — most notably, the meet-and-greet and autograph signing with OSU players that takes place on the Boone Pickens Stadium turf after the April 28 scrimmage.

Behind closed doors, Mike Gundy said the program is focused on what it will have for recruits who take official and unofficial visits to campus that weekend.

Also, in case you didn't hear, longtime Jenks football coach Allan Trimble announced his retirement yesterday. Mike Gundy's reaction:

He’s a legend in the state," Gundy said. "Great guy. Being in a program that’s had tremendous success, but he’s also been involved with that success. He’s maintained, which is not easy to do. And he’s done great with his players over the years and he’s a real coach and an educator in the state of Oklahoma. We need more like him. But definitely a first class guy."

I guess we will have to wait until the spring game to find out.
Spring game won't tell anything, will have to wait till we play a team with a pulse.
Spring games are always tough to gauge. Good offense or poor defense? Good defense or poor offense? It’s more to gauge individual players than the overall team.

STILLWATER — Brad Lundblade and Johnny Wilson both are centers for Oklahoma State.

The similarities end right about there.

“Johnny’s nothing like Brad,” coach Mike Gundy said, comparing OSU’s last center (Lundblade) to its new one. “Brad’s really squared away, Johnny’s not. But both great kids, just two different types of personalities. Lundblade is a guy that’s going to be running a major company in five years. Johnny’s maybe rattlesnake hunting in west Texas.”

Still, Lundblade and Wilson grew close over the past couple seasons as OSU’s starter for three-plus years at center mentored the player he knew would take his place in 2018.

With the NCAA’s help, Larry Williams cleared the biggest hurdle to getting another year at Oklahoma State on Wednesday.

The NCAA Division I Council approved a rule change that alters the requirements for a sixth year of eligibility, directly affecting the situation for the Oklahoma State offensive lineman.

The new NCAA rule allows for a waiver to the five-year rule to be approved if a student-athlete redshirted his or her freshman year because of a school’s decision, then lost another season for reasons outside of his or her control.

STILLWATER -- Including the spring game, Oklahoma State has four on-field workouts left this spring.

But Mike Gundy has watched Taylor Cornelius blossom on the practice field for four years. And though much will be decided in August, when two other competitors join the race, he’s comfortable with where Cornelius is at leaving the spring session.

“Taylor’s won the job, so I don’t think there’s any reason to debate that,” Gundy said after Wednesday’s practice, the 11th of spring. “Coming out of spring, he’s the guy that’s got the most experience, and he’s played well enough that if we were to play next week, he’d be the guy.”

STILLWATER -- With a couple injuries, a couple graduations and one player still waiting to learn his eligibility status, Oklahoma State’s offensive line this spring is young and thin.

Junior Johnny Wilson is the only returning starter participating in spring practices, and he’s at center after moving to guard last fall. Hunter Anthony, a 6-foot-7, 330-pound freshman from Tuttle who has been on campus three months, is running with the second string.

The lack of experience and depth at a position that’s vital to an organized football game is part of why Mike Gundy didn’t make any commitments this week to a specific setup for the Cowboys’ spring game in less than 10 days.

Quietest spring practice reports ever. Besides the TW are there no media or photographers at practice. Haven’t seen too much of anything besides a gallery or 3.
Any injury updates or gonna be stars emerging?
