OSU football notebook: Excitement increasing for Saturday’s Orange-White game

Oklahoman Published: April 16, 2009
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.”

With 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.
