/> ESPN now carries that mantle.

"With the younger generation, for sure,” Gundy said.

"I don’t know if you can put a price on the marketability. It gets people’s attention. Get the logo out there. It’s very positive for Oklahoma State football.”

Gundy called the trip "very interesting. I didn’t understand how big of a place it was. Pretty amazing.”

He said the shows came so fast, he lost track of what was live and what was taped.

Gundy chatted in the ESPN halls with the likes of John Kruk, Linda Cohn, Cris Carter and fellow Oklahoman Skip Bayless. Gundy also had dinner with Anderson, who once worked in Tulsa and is married to an Oklahoma State grad and former Orange Pride football volunteer.

All in all, a good two days to spread OSU football to the nation.

"They’re not just going to let anybody come up there,” Gundy said. "They’ve never invited us before. If they think you can bring some ratings, they’ll bring you.

"Hopefully get to do it again. I don’t know that you get to do it a lot.”

And next time, ESPN, don’t forget the SportsCenter commercial.

Berry Tramel: 405-760-8080; Berry Tramel can be heard Monday through Friday from 4:40-5:20 p.m. on The Sports Animal radio network, including AM-640 and FM-98.1.
