OSU football notebook
A weekend off
Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy
said many OSU players would head home for the bye weekend, departing Friday after class.
Gundy will be in town, and he's looking forward to attending his sons' football games today.
"It's nice,” Gundy said. "One downfall of what we do is for 30 years you coach everybody else's kids and you never coach your own.”
While he acknowledges the downside of working weekends, Gundy said the hours work for him.
"It (depends on) what you think a grind is,” Gundy said. "For me I would prefer to come at work at 5:45 and get home at 10:30 and do this than I would go sit in an office from 8-5. That's just me.”
•On the books: OSU defensive coordinator Tim Beckman said his young No. 2 defensive players got useful playing time last weekend against Missouri State.
"They're the things we need,” Beckman said. "Those kids need college reps and they got those.”
Junior transfer linebacker Donald Booker and sophomore tackle Chris Donaldson stood out, with Donaldson notching a team-leading seven tackles and Booker making six. Booker leads the newcomers with nine tackles in OSU's first three games. (OSU's top five leading tacklers are all third- and fourth-year players).
"He'll go now,” Beckman said of Booker.
