The teams have already been chosen for Saturday’s 6 p.m. Orange-White football scrimmage at Boone Pickens Stadium. Head coach Mike Gundy said the players and coaches have been split for the game. "We divided up the secretaries, administration, medical staff, everybody,” Gundy said with a chuckle. "I heard two of the secretaries arguing over who had the best offensive line.” Other than quarterback Zac Robinson, the fans will get a good look at all the players. Robinson will play a couple of series, "not because of any reason other than we want to see the other two quarterbacks play,” said Gundy, who hopes to choose between Brandon Weeden and Alex Cate for the backup quarterback job by the end of spring. "The majority of starters will play the game.”
FINAL ‘HEAVY’ PRACTICE GOES WELLWith only a makeup practice scheduled before Saturday’s spring game, Gundy said he was pleased with the players’ work in the "final heavy practice” of the spring. OSU will work out in shorts today to make up for the practice that was rained out last month. "We were really excited about the team and the effort (Wednesday),” Gundy said. "Defense did a nice job in some two-minute drill work.” Gundy also spoke highly of redshirt freshman receiver Justin Blackmon. "It seems like he’s showed up and made more plays than we would have anticipated for a freshman,” the coach said.
COX HAVING STRONG SPRINGExpectations are rising for senior cornerback Perrish Cox, who by multiple accounts is performing better than he has in his career. "I expect Perrish Cox to have his best year ever,” said Gundy, who has been impressed with Cox’s play on the field as well as his acceptance of a leadership role as the only returning starter in the secondary.
