Mike Gundy, Cooper Bassett talk Thanksgiving
Last season, Oklahoma State had a bye on Thanksgiving weekend, giving players and coaches a few days off to spend the holiday with family and friends.
But Bedlam has returned to its normal schedule slot (at least temporarily — it’s on Dec. 7 in 2013) this season, with the game being played the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
For OSU coach Mike Gundy, it doesn’t matter when the OU game is played. And he doesn’t find it difficult to find time to spend with family on the holiday.
“When you get to Thursday afternoon,” Gundy said. “…our work is finished, and it’s just a matter of fine-tuning what we need to prepare for the game. To a certain extent, if you can’t get away for four hours, you probably have too much going on, or you’ve got too many plays to start with.”
Defensive end Cooper Bassett is, naturally, looking forward to Thursday’s feast.
“My first plate will probably be a heaping plate of food,” Bassett said. “Mashed potatoes. Turkey. I like white and dark meat, so I’ll be having both of those. Green bean casserole. Rolls. Corn on the cob. Mac and cheese. Stuffing. Cranberry sauce.
“I’ll probably go back for two or three full plates.”
