OKLAHOMA STATE OFFENSIVE PRESS CONFERENCE

Monday, December 29th, 2003
MIKE GUNDY, ASSISTANT HEAD COACH/DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR

On how defeating Kansas State helped the season:

“We had somewhat stumbled in our opinion at Lincoln to open the season and then we came back and played well against four non-conference opponents. But we had a better team physically than those four opponents, so we didn’t know really where we were at. And then we play Kansas State at home and played very well and won that game. We as a coaching staff felt like when that game was over, that was a huge win for us because we had watched them enough and known that they were a very good football team.

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR CHUCK DRIESBACH

On leaving TCU to return to Ole Miss as an assistant coach:

“I’d coached at Ole Miss before and my family had grown up there when I was very young. We loved Fort Worth; we loved TCU. Coach (Gary) Patterson was a first-year head coach and he’d been the previous defensive coordinator. I don’t know if Gary ever wanted to not be defensive coordinator. I enjoyed my experience there but I wanted to be the guy in charge and to be the guy about making decisions and at TCU, Gary was really handling most of those things.

OKLAHOMA STATE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR BILL CLAY

On going against Ole Miss’ offense:

“An old coach at Oklahoma State who is a good friend of mine, Pat Jones, was visiting with me years ago and we were talking about how to build a program and some of the things that you do so you have a good football team. And he made a statement that I have always remembered and that statement was ‘The tough teams are the ones who can run it and know how to throw it.’ That exemplifies Ole Miss’ offense.

“It’s how you go about preparing and how you go about doing this. That’s the concern of ours. Thanksgiving Day was the last time we played and playing January 2nd is a big time frame. Getting the speed of the game is really the critical thing and the best way to do that is play games. It’s hard to get that in practice. So that’s our concern.

HEAD COACH DAVID CUTCLIFFE

Opening Statement:

We are thrilled to be in Dallas and at the Cotton Bowl. We had everyone report but one player, Stacy Andrews, who had some car problems in Arkansas so hopefully he will get here sometime this afternoon. Everybody is reported and ready to go. We had everybody at practice, even a few of them that got a little banged up at home. We’re back at work today and that was exciting. We treated this day like our Monday practice and we’re looking forward to tomorrow.
