Oklahoma State football: Parker Graham happy for another game

by Gina Mizell Published: November 27, 2012

Oklahoma State defensive coordinator Bill Young believes that coaches actually tend to dwell on heartbreaking losses — like last week's 51-48 overtime defeat at Oklahoma — more than players.

Possibly even better for the Cowboys is a scheduling quirk that allows OSU to get back on the field Saturday morning at Baylor, rather than ending the regular season on that sour Bedlam note.

“Now, it's more like we've got all this pent-up frustration and aggression,” offensive lineman Parker Graham said. “Baylor's the next game on our schedule, so that's hopefully the game we're going to take that all out on.”

RANDLE: BAYLOR'S ‘GOT A LOT OF TRASH TALKERS'

The high intensity of college football often leads to harmless jawing between opposing players on the field. Especially when it's a conference matchup.

OSU running back Joseph Randle has heard his fair share of in-game trash talking from Big 12 foes during his three seasons as a Cowboy.

Which opponent has consistently been the chirpiest bunch, in his mind? OU? Texas?

Nope. Baylor.

“They're the most trash-talking team that we play every year,” Randle said. “Guaranteed.

“Any time somebody is stepping up to you and it's a challenge as a man … I don't know what else we're playing for, but we're playing for our pride.”
