Cowboys Searching For Full Potential

Oklahoma State is frustrated.

They say they know Baylor is good, but they know that they didn't play to their potential this last Saturday.

So now they're looking for their full potential heading into their games against the Longhorns; after giving up six to eight negative plays cost the game against the Bears as Mike Gundy put it.

The Cowboys feel they can fix their problems despite losing their last three Big 12 games.

"That's why a lot of guys feel like it got away from us is because we didn't play our best football," Jordan Burton, OSU senior linebacker, said.  "If we play our best football maybe it's a different game.  Who knows?  We don't know that, so we can't live in the past.  We have to take that into the Texas game, and try to play up to our potential and see what happens."

"Our kids will answer the challenge," Glenn Spencer, OSU defensive coordinator, said.  "I feel good about that.  Our kids aren't happy with how we performed.  They don't take any satisfaction after making a few good plays.  The end result is do you play well enough to win the game?  Saturday we didn't play well enough to win the game.  On our side of the ball we always feel like we can win it on our side of the ball, and we can.  We're upset, and angry and ticked off.  I'm sure tomorrow's practice will show that."

"I have to have better production than last week," Mason Rudolph, OSU junior quarterback, said.  "Have to be able to score more points.  Be more of a catalyst for our offense.  So that's what I'm going to kind of motivate myself with this week, and make sure I prepare well and be ready for a Texas team to come up here ready to play."

OSU will also be out to stop a eight game Longhorn win streak right here inside this stadium this Saturday.
