  • Why Texas A&M won't be playing Texas in a bowl

    Published: Wed, Nov 19, 2014

    Don't you miss the Texas-Texas A&M rivalry? Well, the two schools don't look like they'll be playing any time soon -- even in a bowl. Per HornsDigest.com, the Southeastern Conference reportedly has indicated to bowls with SEC vs. Big 12 tie-ins that the conference wouldn't support an Aggies vs. Longhorns matchup. From HornsDigest.com's Chip Brown: "In short, A&M has too much to lose from a potential loss. "Right now, the Aggies and Kevin Sumlin are seen as the school to beat in the Lone Star State in recruiting. Why risk diminishing that status with just more than two months until National Signing Day?"

    staff reports | Published: Wed, Nov 19, 2014

    A true freshman may get his first start this weekend for Oklahoma State at quarterback. On the road. At No. 6 Baylor. Cowboys quarterback Daxx Garman has reportedely been unable to practice this week because of concussion symptoms. If Garman isn't able to practice for the Cowboys on Wednesday or Thursday, that could position true freshman Mason Rudolph to start for OSU against the Bears in Waco Saturday night. Garman's condition  was first reported by the Tulsa World. Rudolph (6-foot-4, 217 pounds)  hasn't played this season for the Cowboys. Garman was the No. 2 quarterback before J.W. Walsh went down with a season-ending injury in September.

  • Oklahoma State football: Mike Gundy happy for high expectations

    By John Helsley | Published: Tue, Nov 18, 2014

    The Cowboys have slipped and are showing no signs of getting up. Four straight losses leaves Oklahoma State at 5-5, with road games at Baylor and Oklahoma remaining. And fans are more than restless. Some even are outraged. Mike Gundy, meanwhile, maintains that better days are ahead — as in 2015 — although it’s a message that may not be well received, since it doesn’t fix things now. “It’s like certain things with your wife, it’s not going to matter what you say,” Gundy said. “You’re going to lose. “I really understand that. Now, I’m OK with that. It doesn’t bother me. I’m glad that people think we should be successful here all the time. That’s the way we want it to be.

  • For Mike Gundy, Bob Stoops inflated salaries come with inflated expectations

    By Jenni Carlson, Staff Writer | Updated: Mon, Nov 17, 2014

    Stoops is making $5.25 million this season while Gundy is pulling down $3.5 million. Our state’s median household income: $43,000. I’m not suggesting that Stoops or Gundy should’ve asked for a reduction in salary, though I suspect there could be some pitchforks sharpened and torches ignited if these Florida rumors spur any salary increases.
