STILLWATER — Last December, while the rest of the Cowboys were enjoying sunny San Diego, Oklahoma State’s Terrance Anderson sat at home, filled with the regret of having let his team down.

Anderson had gotten careless in the classroom late in his junior year and was academically ineligible for OSU’s Holiday Bowl trip.

"It hurt,” said Anderson, now a rising senior. "The coaches would say, ‘Yeah, we understand you had a hard schedule,’ but to me, hard schedule or not, I should’ve passed. I let my team down and it hurt badly.”

With that experience still large in his rear-view mirror, and with the opportunity for the career backup to finally become a starting cornerback, Anderson is a new man this spring.

"Sometimes, things happen to us and it’s like a blessing in disguise,” said cornerbacks coach Jason Jones. "Terrance is working harder in the weight room. He’s buckling down in the classroom and taking care of his business.
