Saturday was a huge day for OSU and the Cowboys head coach.
It was homecoming, the Pokes pulled off a top ten upset and Mike Gundy picked up his 100th win joining some select company across the country.
Only six other coaches have that many wins at their current school.
A milestone that had everyone beaming and acting like a proud papa.
“That is great,” said Ramon Richards, OSU junior cornerback. “That is great. I was about to say I’m proud of him like I was his daddy or something. It’s great. I’m glad I can be a part of that because he’s been here a long time, and had a lot of success here at Oklahoma State. To be a part of that milestone is great."
“Went in front of the team, and gave him that game ball,” said Glenn Spencer, OSU defensive coordinator. “Those seniors have been around for a lot of them. I’ve been around for a lot of them, so it was nice to hand him that ball. It was a great accomplishment. I was happy for him, and it kind of gets it out of the way now too."
“It’s awesome,” said Mason Rudolph, OSU junior quarterback. “Happy to be a part of a few of them here at the end. I think he has another hundred in his system if he keeps going. We’ll see, but just proud of him, and thankful to be a part of such a great program."
“College football is all about the team spirit, and wanting to be at the game,” said Mike Gundy, OSU head football coach. “I wanted to make sure they knew we appreciated (paddle people) and I appreciated them. I’m excited for this win for our team. I didn’t want it to be about me. I wanted it to be about them. I also wanted them to know how much appreciated them, and I thought this was the time to do it.”
How’s this for conference competition?
Four of those active coaches with 100 wins at their current school are in the Big 12.
Including the head coach of the Cowboys next opponent Kansas State’s Bill Snyder.
