T. Boone Pickens isn't ready to write off Dez Bryant or this Oklahoma State season, despite a series of unfortunate events.

"All sickness ain't death," Pickens said.

OSU's super booster, both financially and emotionally, held a sort of State of the Cowboys address Saturday in the press box at Kyle Field.

And he addressed several issues.

On Bryant's ineligibility:

"It's not good, no question. Disappointed."

On expectations:

"We started off ranked five and that was the high point of the year. From there, everything went the wrong direction. Lost Kendall (Hunter). Now Dez. Houston game was no fun. It's got to get better."

On maintaining perspective:

"We're pretty realistic, all of us are. We know what's happened to us. You get in a hole, you try to dig out. That's where we are."

On the thought that the program is cursed:

"Hell, no. I said it earlier, we're not deep. If we get injuries, we're going to have problems. I wish I hadn't said it, but I'm not sure it had anything to do with it.

"We'll see how we go from here. The big games are yet to come."
