It’s high noon...

OSU Athletics catches up with Brandon Weeden:

A breakdown of the 2019 Basketball schedule:

For a team like Oklahoma State, which is coming off a sluggish 2018-19, a quick start is crucial. So the first six games of the Big 12 slate could set the tone for the season. After the road trip to Texas Tech, the Cowboys host West Virginia, travel to TCU, host Texas and Baylor in the space of four days and then travel to Iowa State. A .500 record by then would be a solid start for the Cowboys. {Heartland College Sports}

How should Oklahoma State move forward at quarterback:

Sanders is young and electric. He has a cannon for an arm and sprinters speed. If he ever puts it all together he’ll be phenomenal. But he also panics when his first read isn’t there. He carries the ball like a loaf of bread, leading to fumbles. He has a tendency to throw the ball high which leads to tipped balls and picks. He locks onto receivers and seems hesitant to throw to anyone except Wallace and slot receiver Dillion Stoner. Texas Tech exposed the fact the he only likes to scramble to the right and if you cut that off his ability to turn a broken play into a long run is mostly taken away.

And expect everyone else they play to follow the same formula Tech did: blitz to slow down Hubbard and pressure Sanders, cut off the right side scramble, and double Wallace. Basically make OSU use literally anything else but the two studs and Sanders’ legs beat you. {Heartland College Sports}
