Keeping the Cowboys motivated
by Andrea Cohen
On Monday I wrote an “insider” story about how difficult it would be for Oklahoma State coach Sean Sutton to keep his guys motivated. At 10-11, OSU’s NCAA Tournament shot is a long shot, and six losses in a row can take its toll. I’m not — and I wasn’t then — saying Sutton couldn’t keep his guys together, just saying it was a big, big challenge.
So yesterday, I went to practice to see how it was going and saw was one of the most spirited and entertaining practices of the year. The trash-talking between guys was, um, intense, to put it lightly. The orange team (Sidorakis, Harris, Moses, Adams and Hatch) beat the black team (Eaton, Dove, Muonelo, Anderson and Thomas). When the teams were tied at the end of regulation every guy on both teams declared they wanted to play overtime.
“Very competitive,” Sutton said after practice. “Good practice.”
