Head Coach Mike Gundy did something today that no other Oklahoma State football coach has done before; he won 100 games.

That’s something that if you told me would happen when he got the job back in 2005, I would have laughed about. Yet here we are. Seriously, he’s one of only seven active coaches with 100 victories with their current team.
It’s an amazing achievement, and everyone around and connected with the program has something to say about it.
That includes former offensive coordinator Todd Monken:

James Poling does a great write up with Gundy’s former boss Les Miles and his former offensive coordinator Larry Fedora. Miles had some great things to say about his former OC. (source)
“He’s done a great job year-in and year-out with an exciting brand of football to watch,” Miles said. “They win. They expect to win, and maybe that’s the greatest characteristic of a Mike Gundy team.”
Former players including Barry Sanders, Zac Robinson, Brandon Pettigrew and even Brandon Weeden congratulated Gundy with a video telling them thank you.
After today’s win, current QB Mason Rudolph offered his two cents on his head coach.

Gundy (deservedly so) got the game ball.
We missed it on video, but Glenn Spencer gave Mike Gundy the game ball in the locker room after today's win. Cool moment #okstate #GoPokes— Gavin Lang (@glang1) October 29, 2016
Even Gundy has thoughts on today’s momentous victory.

and of course, he celebrated in the way Gundy knows best.

There is sure to be plenty written up about Gundy’s 100th win this week. Heck, we have a big write up planned for tomorrow (and it is full of #research). The point of it all is, Gundy is a Cowboy treasure who achieved something... I don’t know I’ve run out of adjectives. The point is congratulations Coach Gundy. Thank you for the past 11 1⁄2 seasons. I look forward to the rest of your coaching career with the Cowboys.
