What a week this has been for Oklahoma State athletics! On Tuesday, our top-ten men’s basketball team ripped through #11-ranked Memphis by 21 points–putting up 101 points against them. On Friday, our nationally-ranked Cowgirls’ basketball squad demolished the University of Southern California by 31 points.
Then came last night. We faced the third-ranked Baylor Bears, with the #1 offense and #10 defense in the country, the top candidate for the Heisman Trophy at quarterback, and ambitions to win the national championship. We ripped them for 49 points and allowed their offense–one which had averaged 61 points per game–a measly 17 points. What a team effort, and what a great job of coaching! If it hadn’t been for that horrible day in Morgantown, West Virginia, when our Cowboys went to sleep (and left the fabulous QB Clint Chelf sitting on the bench) and lost our only game of the year, we would be sitting on top of the national rankings today.
