Following Saturday's win over TCU, Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy indicated that he views his Cowboys as a Playoff contender.
Gundy attempted to pry open the brain of the Playoff committee, saying, "I know Kirby [Hocutt] had mentioned that the committee feels a certain way about that game. I think Kirby's playing poker and that they see us as a 10-win team. That's just my opinion." "That game," in this case, would be the Cowboys' controversial Hail Mary/lateral loss to Central Michigan in Week 2, one that should not have been, as a blatant officiating failure allowed the Chippewas a chance for their final, dramatic play. Scrubbing that loss off their resume, their lone legitimate defeat came at the hands of Baylor on September 24. "Nobody will convince me that we didn't get the win [against Central Michigan]," Gundy said. He has one vocal supporter in Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops, who couldn't resist taking an officiating shot, saying of Oklahoma State on Saturday night, "In my eyes, they only got one loss. You know, if you played by the rules." Nov 20 - 11:28 AM
