Who is constantly representing our beloved University, even past their college days? Who would you most want to sit down next to at the Penny, and drink a limey with? These are the types of questions you should be asking yourself while voting. This is for you guys!
Round 1 / Match 10: #10 Eddie Sutton vs. #23 Zac Robinson
Whenever you think of Oklahoma State basketball, some may think of Desmond Mason, Tony Allen, Stephen Graham, John Lucas III, or Bryant Reeves. However, none of those players, or any others that you can think of, are the same players they grew up to be without Eddie Sutton. Eddie was the head basketball coach for Oklahoma State from 1990-2006. During his tenure, Sutton led the Cowboys to 13 NCAA Tournament appearances and two Final 4’s.
Zac Robinson was one of the most dynamic and versatile QB’s in Oklahoma State history. During his 4-year OSU career, Robinson passed for 8,317 yards and 66 touchdowns, and also ran for 1,858 yards and 22 touchdowns. The combination of Robinson, Dez Bryant and Kendall Hunter was an absolute blast to watch on Saturdays.
After his OSU career, he bounced around on the Patriots, Seahawks and Lions. He finally found a home with the Bengals from 2011-2014 as a backup.
