GUNDY CONFIDENT TRACY MOORE ‘WILL START TO SHOW UP'

When Tracy Moore sustained a season-ending ankle injury last October, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said that the Cowboys had lost their second-best offensive player.

After a medical redshirt, Moore is healthy and back on the field for his second go-round of his senior season. But so far, he's off to a slow start statistically, by his standards, ranking fifth on the team with seven catches for 77 yards and zero touchdowns.

Gundy said Moore hasn't severely underperformed, however.

“He has maybe one or two drops,” Gundy said. “But he blocked well down the field and he will start to show up. It's just a matter of time.”

How much does Moore's lack of early production have to do with OSU's deep receiving corps, where veterans Josh Stewart (12 catches, 185 yards, one touchdown) and Charlie Moore (11 catches, 109 yards, one touchdown) have been steady and youngsters Jhajuan Seales (11 catches, 123 yards, one touchdown) and Marcell Ateman (eight catches, 92 yards) have emerged?

“Maybe not as much that as just the other team has to play a certain way,” Gundy said. “They can play run or play pass, and if they want to play pass, they can certainly try to take somebody out of the game. I think they have kind of leaned heavy on him at times.”
