Following Saturday’s disappointment in the desert, OSU defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer spoke about how this group of players haven’t been in this spot – recovering from a loss – very often.
Spencer noted, though, that the last time, late last season at Iowa State, the Cowboys’ response was strong.
And these players say it’ll be the same this time, when Louisiana-Lafayette visits Boone Pickens Stadium Saturday.
“There’s a lot to say about the character of the guys we have,”said senior offensive lineman Jonathan Rush. “Even Wes (Lunt), that being his first road game and to have a calm demeanor and a level head… he may have been thinking it in his head, but he was always out there cool and composed. He had a great poker face, if he was thinking all these crazy things.
“I don’t think at any time anybody held anything against somebody else. Nobody pointed the fingers as to why things were going the way they were. And that says a lot to the maturity of this team.”
Added sophomore defensive tackle James Castleman: “There’s no doubt about it, we do have a lot of leaders on this team. And they will come out and keep leading this team from this point on out.”
