OSU notebook: Cowboys still getting acquainted

If there’s a trouble spot for the OSU offense, it’s been the mistakes — turnovers and penalties — that have stalled or stopped the Cowboys at times.

"I think we’re still making a lot of mistakes, turning the ball over a little bit, just not like we’re used to in the past,” said quarterback Zac Robinson.

Robinson also pointed to ongoing personnel changes along the offensive line and inexperience at wide receiver as factors for the slow start.

"As our offensive line and everybody else gets acquainted with playing with each other… we have a lot of young guys who are playing,” Robinson said, "especially receivers playing for the first time.”

While the Cowboys have a difference-maker in Dez Bryant, most of the other wide receivers are being counted on for the first time.

"Everybody always says Dez, but the guys behind him have very few snaps,” Robinson said. "They’re getting a lot better.”

Sharp, Toston honored
OSU’s Quinn Sharp seemingly has a leg up on the competition.

For the fourth straight week, Sharp drew recognition from the College Football Performance Awards for his kicking skills, named national kickoff specialist performer of the week.
