This is the first edition of the Daily Roundup, a feature that will be bringing in the best Oklahoma State content from around the web.
In this blurb from The Oklahoman, week one opponent Savannah State coach Steve Davenport gives his take on Saturday’s season opener. I like Davenport being honest that his team is over matched and the game is no more than a money deal—there are few things more annoying than coaches from obscure schools calling out teams they have no chance against. And he mentions the beauty of Stillwater —can’t go wrong with that.
Many OKState fans have a tendency to avoid jersey talk, probably out of the fear that the increasing level of jersey combinations could make Oklahoma State an Oregon-like gimmick.

If you’re not following the Oklahoma State Cowgirls soccer team by now, you should be. The team is ranked no. 4 in the nation and is closing in on the highest ranking in school history. The team is coming off of back-to-back Elite Eight appearances and is full of star players such as All-American goalkeeper AD Franch.
There’s no doubt about it—these girls are legit. This may be the best team Oklahoma State has on campus, and with the talent level OSU now has across a wide variety of sports, that is a big statement.
