It’s high noon...

Emmanuel Ogbah starts practice with Chiefs:

Former OSU Cowboy Emmanuel Ogbah started his time with the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday. The Chiefs Tweeted out this video of Ogbah arriving for his day of practice.

He spoke with the media later in the day and talked about getting traded to KC and his memories of Patrick Mahomes in college.

Jeffery Carroll works out in Gallagher Iba:

The Soutbay Lakers may be finished with their season, but the work doesn’t stop for Jeffery Carroll. He was back in the weight room in Gallagher Iba yesterday during his offseason. Always cool to see OSU athletes come back home to Stillwater.

Les Miles compares current Kansas team to first teams as LSU, Oklahoma State:

Les Miles saw his Kansas Jayhawks play in the first thing that resembled a football game this past Saturday. He told the Lawrence Journal-World that he thinks this team has more talent than his first-year teams at OSU or LSU.

“I look at the first years at other places, I think I’m more talented here in my first year — if I had to go back and look at other opportunities that I had to be a head coach,” Miles said. “I think I could be more talented here in my first year.”

To reiterate: The former head coach of the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the LSU Tigers said on the record that this current group of Kansas Jayhawks “could be more talented” than the teams he coached in his debut seasons at OSU and LSU.

In 2001, Oklahoma State gave Miles his first head coaching job. The Cowboys finished 4-7 overall and 2-6 in the Big 12. {Lawrence Journal-World}

Mike Gundy places the blame on himself for issues last season:

After what was an uncharacteristic year under Gundy for Oklahoma State football, questions have been asked throughout the offseason about what the problem was. Zach Barnett of FootballScoop.com wrote about what Gundy has told the Tulsa World about the 7-6 season.

“The first reason that we won only seven games was me,” Gundy told the Tulsa World. “I went back and self-scouted myself, and I was to blame for the majority of it. Because of the way that I handled the team. The majority of it was me. Most of the years, I’ve done a pretty good job. Last year, from Jan. 1 until our bowl game (on Dec. 31), I didn’t do a good job.

“You could say that 20% of it was on (assistant coaches) and then 20% on the players. The other 60% is on me. I didn’t do a very good job of managing the people that I had in the organization — the players and the coaches. And that’s the result you get.”

The World reported, through sources, that Gundy has been more engaged around Oklahoma State’s football offices thus far in 2019. {footballscoop.com}
