It’s high noon...

Football staff trying move forward with season:

Mike Gundy and his staff have had a difficult off season to say the least. However they are trying to give their players as much direction as possible given the circumstances.

The defining word for the Cowboys moving forward: DIRECTION

The Big Ten Conference announced on Aug. 11 the cancellation of all Fall sports followed by the Pac-12 postponing Fall sports as well. The Big 12, however, came forward shortly after to announce teams would continue on with football as planned adopting the 9+1 scheduling format.

“The lack of direction has been the most difficult for the players,” Gundy said. “We have to play the hand that we’ve been dealt. Once the Big 12 said we’re playing football, it changed the program. Everyone is in a great frame of mind now.” {Franchise}

Reactions to stadium opening:

The O’Colly took the thoughts of fans when it was announced the BPS would be open for the fans this season.

There were mixed responses on Boone Pickens Stadium reopening for the 2020 football season.

There have been responses to fans feeling OK about attending the stadium to fans not participating despite making frequent appearances.

In an O’Colly Sports poll on Twitter, 70.4% of people say they feel safe going to OSU football games this fall, 29.6% of people said they don’t feel safe. {O’Colly}
