After reviewing the film from Saturday's scrimmage, OSU coach Mike Gundy still came to one overall conclusion — that the Cowboy offense outplayed the defense.


But one impressive part of that offensive performance that initially got overlooked by coaches? The OSU receivers did not drop any of the 51 passes thrown.

“I don't know that I've ever been around that,” Gundy said in a Monday post-practice report released by the school, “so we're catching the ball effectively.”

It was a different story on Monday, though, as Gundy said the Cowboys dropped several balls during practice.

OSU returns Tracy Moore, Isaiah Anderson, Josh Stewart and Charlie Moore at receiver in 2012 but will also rely on a group of newcomers, including Blake Jackson, Torrance Carr, David Glidden, C.J. Curry and Blake Webb.

QUINN SHARP AIMS TO IMPROVE POOCH PUNTING

Gundy called Quinn Sharp the best special teams player in the country during his Oklahoma City Caravan stop last week. But Gundy noted the Cowboy kicker/punter needed to improve in one area.

Pooch punting.

“I know you guys are sitting there and going … ‘Why'd he kick it out of the end zone and put them on the 20? Why didn't you down it inside the 10?'” Gundy told the crowd. “That's the goal.
