OSU-A&M: Quick Glance
By John Helsley
Travis Ford remained remarkably cool following his team’s breakthrough road win at Kansas State.
Yeah, he was pleased. And proud of his team for its gutsy win in Manhattan.
But the Cowboys coach was hardly bubbling over with joy, too aware of the potential pitfalls lined up along the Big 12 schedule. And he shared with us his message to the team, one he himself was following in the media scrum afterward.
“‘We can’t get too high, can’t get too low,’” Ford said he told his crew. “‘But you beat a really good team on the road today. Feel good – for about an hour. Then forget about it. Every night’s going to be a war in this league.’”
On to tonight, where Texas A&M visits Gallagher-Iba Arena to open a six-day stretch that figures to reveal much about these Cowboys.
OSU is tied with A&M and Missouri for fourth place in the Big 12, all at 3-2. The Cowboys face A&M tonight and visit Missouri Saturday, followed by a Big Monday showdown in Stillwater with second-place Texas.
Of the three, A&M is a mandatory win. Anything more is a bonus, but the Cowboys must hold their home floor tonight.
