Fields cheers on Cowgirls
Former OSU quarterback Josh Fields was in the stands Monday night to cheer on the Cowgirls in the NCAA Tournament. Fields was with his wife, former Cowgirl softball player Ashley Tweed, and baby. Fields, now a third baseman with the Kansas City Royals, is in spring training at Surprise, Ariz.
“My wife and I decided we had to support the Cowgirls a little bit,” Fields said. Fields’ mother, Rhonda Fields, is the girls basketball coach at Jenks.
It was good to see Fields. I hope Kansas City works out better for him that did the White Sox. Fields says he and his family will make their off-season home in Oklahoma as soon as he sells his house in Florida.
Fields remains one of the most underrated Cowboys of them all. A two-sport star — yes, star. And when I say he’s underrated, I mean by me. I always forget to include him in the discussion of greatest OSU quarterback ever. Last year, during the Mike Gundy/Zac Robinson debate, my comrade John Helsley always had to remind me to not forget about Fields.
Which is accurate. Fields was a two-year starter who put up great numbers, and BEFORE that two-year stint, he led an epic Bedlam upset. Fields’ 2-1 record against Oklahoma is enough to move him on the list, and all those touchdown passes to Rashaun Woods puts him very high. I would rank the greatest QBs at OSU this way: 1. Gundy, 2. Robinson, 3. Fields. But if someone wants to argue that Fields was better than Robinson, they would be on solid ground.
