OSU notebook: Bowl practices give youngsters chance to contribute

Oklahoma State's bowl practices are primarily designed to prepare for the Cotton Bowl, but they're also about giving some younger players occasional reps to help propel the Cowboys into the 2014 season.

COTTON BOWL GIFTS? SHAUN LEWIS SPILLS

The Cotton Bowl does not publicly release the gifts players will receive for participating in its event.

But Cowboy linebacker Shaun Lewis has heard rumblings about what the Cowboys will get: An iPad mini, an Apple TV and a Beats mini pill.

Those should please the most tech-savvy Cowboys. But which gift is Lewis most excited for?

“I'm looking forward to the Apple TV thing, because I already have an iPad,” he said.

GUNDY REVEALS TWITTER GAME DAY POLICY

Twitter is what initially made Gundy aware of Tyler Patmon making the first bowl game of his college career.

Patmon, a postgraduate transfer from Kansas, tweeted as much following the Cowboys' win at Iowa State, which made OSU bowl eligible with its sixth victory of the season.

Turns out Patmon was also following the rules with that postgame tweet. Gundy revealed that OSU's social media policy forbids players from tweeting from Friday afternoon until after each game during the season.

“I don't know if they all follow that,” Gundy said. “But for the most part, I think they do a good job.”
