STILLWATER — Mike Gundy still plays it coy on whether Oklahoma State called for a punt block in crunch time Saturday night in Aggieland. Doesn't want to divulge state secrets, and you can't blame him. Not for that. But you have to blame Gundy for another big L on the State ledger. A&M beat OSU 24-23 in a game the Cowboys should have won for two indisputable reasons: •The Pokes had a 17-0 lead. •And A&M stinks. Gundy gets the blame because he gets the big office. It's time for Gundy to get the Posse fired up for something other than yelling at Jenni Carlson. Time for Gundy to post a victory that signals the kind of change that Les Miles brought to town and seemingly left with him. Another opportunity arrives Saturday on the Nebraska farmlands, where OSU won on its first very first trip, November 1960, and hasn't won since. "Our locker room was extremely disappointed,” Gundy said. "Most I've seen since I've been here. "We're trying to make some changes around here. We have some goals we're trying to accomplish.” First goal: beat somebody on the road. Gundy's road record at OSU: 3-11, with two wins coming over Arkansas State and Florida Atlantic on semi-neutral fields, the other at Kansas last season. That spiral should have reversed Saturday night in College Station but didn't, after Quinton Moore's roughing-the-punter penalty in the final two minutes squashed OSU's last hopes. Trying to block a punt in that situation is unwise; either unwise or a total indictment of your offense. Gundy claims confidence in his offense, even with starter-turned-backup Bobby Reid in charge, after Zac Robinson's banishment to the bench with a concussion. "I felt good in this situation because that's what we do,” Gundy said of the hurry-up offense. "We don't huddle up. We do it every day, all the time.” Gundy said Moore made a mistake by leaving his feet. Even on an all-out punt block, rushers are not supposed to go airborne. Gundy also said just because a team lines up like it's trying to block the kick, that doesn't mean that's the intent. Sometimes, packing the middle and bullrushing means the linemen have to stay home and block more, leaving fewer players to cover the punt. Football is a complicated game. When coaches say we — media, fans, all of us — don't know football, they're basically correct. A dozen factors had to be considered on what to do Saturday night. A&M's punt alignment, A&M's punter, OSU's fatigue, the wind, the momentum. So who knows? If Moore blocks that punt, he's the hero, Gundy's the genius and OSU doesn't seem like such a road pushover. In situations like this, there's no such thing as a bad decision. Just make a decision and make it the right one. But this is a bottom-line business. Just win, baby. Block a punt, run it back for a touchdown, move down the field in a hurry-up offense. Who cares how? Just win.
