Oklahoma State football: Mike Gundy hasn't talked to Wes Lunt about experience as a freshman quarterback

Gundy, who started as a freshman in 1986, said: “I think the only thing I could do now is mess him up. He seems to be very levelheaded.”

Running back Jeremy Smith said that was the biggest development he saw during fall camp.

“Just becoming the band of brothers just like we were last year,” Smith said. “Last year, we were pretty much unstoppable, because we were so close as a team. During fall, even on our breaks, everybody was still together talking about football.

“That was pretty much the one thing that we had to pretty much grow in, and that's what we did.”

GUNDY PREFERS DAY GAMES

Because TV deals continue to play a gigantic role in college football, OSU has a wide variety of kickoff times for its first three games.

OSU's season opener against Savannah State will kick off at 6 p.m., while the Cowboys' first road contest at Arizona will start at 9:30 p.m. (7:30 p.m. in Tucson) and the game against Louisiana-Lafayette in Stillwater will kick off at 11 a.m.

Of those three options, Gundy would take the morning kickoff.

“Everybody loves the noon, 1, 2 o'clock kickoffs,” Gundy said. “I'd rather have the 11. Get up, play the game and have the rest of the afternoon or evening to be a normal person.”
