Oklahoma State football notebook: Wide receiver David Glidden not concerned about offensive game plan

With the distribution of touches heavily favoring running backs against Florida State, one might think it could bother Glidden. Especially since the junior is expected to play a larger role in the Cowboys’ offense this season with the departure of Josh Stewart.

Of Oklahoma State’s 69 plays on offense Saturday night against Florida State, only eight ended with quarterback J.W. Walsh completing a pass to a wide receiver.

“Coaches are going to call the game and they’re going to do what they think is best,” wide receiver David Glidden said. “It’s our job to go out there and execute it.”

With the distribution of touches heavily favoring running backs, one might think it could bother Glidden. Especially since the junior is expected to play a larger role in the Cowboys’ offense this season with the departure of Josh Stewart.

But when asked Monday about the play calling against FSU, Glidden explained why it doesn’t bother him a bit.

“Zone read? That means I get to go block somebody. I get to go hit somebody in the mouth,” Glidden said. “That’s fine with me. A lot of guys kind of overlook that part of the game … to me that’s a fun part of the game.”

Offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich says Glidden’s attitude is shared by his teammates in the position group.

“Our players understand the team concept and they understand that their ability to block on the perimeter is going to help them down the field in play-action pass,” Yurcich said. “We have a team unit. We have unselfish players. So I don’t worry about that at all.”
