OSU football: Mike Gundy wants kicker and punter identified in next 7-10 days

Gundy has accepted the fact that the Cowboys no longer have a valuable kicking triple-threat like Quinn Sharp.

Gundy said the Cowboys will prepare for the artificial noise just like any other road game — by blaring loud music inside Boone Pickens Stadium during practice.

“That's really helped us over the last few years on the road,” Gundy said. “Because when you play on the road, that's how loud it is. Players get used to not hearing sound and (instead) seeing signals … they said (the cowbells are) really loud, but I'm confident that our players are OK with it.”

OSU, of course, can counter with its own crew of noisemakers in the Paddle People. Similar to the SEC's policy, last season the Big 12 prohibited the use of artificial noisemakers once either offense became set at the line of scrimmage during conference games.

EXTRA POINTS

A representative from the OSU marketing department said approximately 36,600 public season tickets have been sold, which is about 1,100 away from a school record. Those figures do not include the approximately 5,000 student season tickets that have been sold. … Gundy said a select group of three offensive players, three defensive players and one specialist will pick the Cowboys' 2013 uniform combinations in about two weeks. … OSU held its first practice in pads Sunday morning.
