Oklahoma State put on full pads for the first time this fall during Tuesday morning's practice. Head coach Mike Gundy was pleased with his squad's first day of physical football.
"It was good to get in full pads today," Gundy said. "It was nice to play real football, we finished with a few plays of full contact."
Gundy also liked the weather during the practice, which lasted from 8:30 to 11:15 a.m.
"It was hot," he said. "So we were able to exert our players."

The encouraging early impressions of OSU's 2010 recruiting class continue to roll in.
After practice, Gundy spoke of several freshmen who have shown the ability to make an impact this season.
"We still have younger players in the program performing well," Gundy said. "Joseph Randle has played very well, Chris Dinkins has shown signs of having a chance to compete early, Lavocheya Cooper has made some plays.
"Gerron Anthony, as a lineman, has made some plays. Shaun Lewis has made some plays and I'm sure I've forgotten some, but we have a number of guys whether true freshmen or redshirt freshmen who have shown up and made some plays."
