Oklahoma State followed a “really good” scrimmage last week with another “really good” scrimmage Saturday evening, according to Cowboy coach Mike Gundy.
“It was a sound scrimmage,” Gundy said of the Cowboys' fall camp finale. “We didn't really have very many penalties, which I was pleased with. There were good plays on both sides of the ball. Players competed and we had a good day.
“I really like where our team is. I like their cohesiveness, I like their attitude and they're in really good shape right now. I'm pleased with the way camp's ended.”
Gundy said he spent most of the scrimmage focused on the trenches of the offensive and defensive line, an area he hadn't previously watched as much during fall camp. The Cowboys return three starters on the offensive line but have a young second unit, while the defensive line returns both starters at tackle but has little experience at end.
“I watched more on the interior both sides, and I was pleased,” Gundy said. “They're coming along. I think they all are, and I'm happy with where they're at.”
The Cowboys will take Sunday and Monday off for the start of classes. By the middle of the week, Gundy said the staff will decide which true freshmen will play in the first game and which will likely redshirt. Saturday's scrimmage will weigh heavily in those decisions.
