Weeden out the bad habits: OSU quarterback says he’s a changed man

Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden said becoming the Cowboys' starter has prompted him to change his approach to practice and other things.

Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden says he wasn’t stung by Cowboys coach Mike Gundy’s past criticism of his practice approach. In fact, it sounds like Weeden has embraced it.

After coming off the bench to throw two touchdown passes in OSU’s 31-28 win over Colorado last November, Weeden acknowledged
“I’m not a practice player, I’m more a game-type player.”

Now, in a Q&A with Robert Allen of GoPokes.com, the 26-year-old former professional baseball player says all that’s changed. Now that he’s the OSU starter, Weeden says he’s changed “the way I went about practice and the way I went about everything I do.”

“I’ve changed the way I go about my business whether it is on the field and everything, field, weight room, trying to get the guys going,” Weeden told GoPokes.com. “I know I am a little bit older than these guys and I try to use that to my advantage as much as I can.”
