“We get way too much credit when we're doing good and we get beat up too much when we're doing bad. That's just kind of the way it is.”
AFTER LOSS, LEADERSHIP NEEDED
Following the first setback of this season, a Big 12 loss that puts OSU's conference favorite status on hold, the Cowboys find themselves in need of a pick-me-up.
Or in this case, a pick-ourselves-up.
“Nobody's ever happy after a loss,” said OSU safety Daytawion Lowe. “But we've got a lot of older guys who have lost before. I mean, we know we have to get in the film room and get out there in practice and get better.
“We are a good football team. (Saturday), we didn't really show it. But at the same time, we've got to go out and prepare better than we did today.”
Linebacker Caleb Lavey said this week would be a call for the team's seniors to do their part.
“The trick is the leadership on the team,” said Lavey, one of the seniors. “It's really important for us to make sure the young guys don't get their heads down. You can't get your head down, either as a leader. There's no good that comes from it.
“You can feel sorry about it, but that's not going to make you become a better player. We need to become better players as go forth in Big 12 play.”
