Gandhi discusses Game Day mood, Chuva Hubbard workloads, new receivers and Presley


Stillwater-Official Depth Chart Now Available! The official depth chart is out! Our projection was definitely there. We want to think that after all these years, we know one or two things. This is my 47th season covering Oklahoma football as a member of the media. During some of those seasons I attended all the games, but some covered part of the schedule. I’ve been a member of the Cowboy Radio Network crew for the last 19 years and have participated in every game. It’s great to be able to start again at Boone Pickens Stadium this Saturday. The smallest crowd I’ve ever seen in front of Oklahoma State University was one of the recent road games in Kansas, or the October 3, 1981 match against North Texas in the Cotton Bowl. The 9-0 victory was witnessed by less than 10,000 fans.

This Saturday, the Cowboys will open to host Tulsa. There are 15 to 17,000 fans, depending on the number of suite levels in the stadium. I want more there.

I asked Coach Mike Gandhi Head of Oklahoma if he was watching enough football to figure out what to watch on Saturday this week.

“I practiced on the weekends, so I watched a lot here and there, but not too much, but I saw it here and there,” Gandy said of the game televised on Labor Day weekends. “The game looks fine. Obviously, I don’t have any fans, so I think it sounds completely different for now.”

Over the past two weeks, the practice load of returning All-American leading bargainer and Chuba Hubbard, a candidate for the Heissmann Trophy, has increased. Last year, Gandhi turned around and felt that he had repeatedly given the ball to a talented Canadian native. Having suffered a pelvic fracture last year, Hubbard trained and is now healthy. Hubbard is said to be really good looking, better and even faster.

How do you think Gandhi regulates the Hubbard workload, depending on the game situation?

“He will get his belongings,” Gandy replied. “We do this based on what he feels throughout the game. I hope he doesn’t have to carry the game 30 times in order to be successful. If he feels good, to give it to him.”

Lastly, stick to the favorite criminal topic of most cowboys fans, so what about receivers? The speculation here is that Tylan Wallace fully recovers from the tears and surgery on his ACL. He is taken at a comfortable pace. Oklahoma has Dillon Stoner, Landon Wolf, and speedy Bradon Johnson showing off his awesomeness on the Texas Bowl. I can say that last year’s 4-star freshman receiver Langston Anderson is ready to step up and contribute.

In addition to those guys, Oklahoma added three new pass catchers, two transfers and one freshman. The transfer is the original LSU receiver Dee Anderson, comfortably gradual transitioning and claiming that the eligible receiver, Tay Martin, came from Washington, catching 143 passes with 1,471 yards and 16 touchdowns in three seasons. Did.

“They (Anderson and Martin) are new people competing to learn and attack our attacks,” Gandhi explained. “As they become more accustomed to our attacks, we give them more contact.”

Martin seems to have come in, adapted and put into practice, and the report reported that he showed a skill set and ability to convince him to progress very quickly and that his staff would play a strong role this season. I will. Martin told the Polks report he came up with the idea of ​​taking advantage of the season in Oklahoma to get a solid opportunity at the NFL.

Next is the freshman, £5-8, £165 Bixby masterpiece, Oklahoma High School Player of the Year Brennan Presley. Regardless of his size, Presley is electric and ready to contribute early.

“From day one, he’s been advertised, super-competitive, loves to play football, and, fortunately, has maintained a health that’s important if you’re a true freshman who wants to be on the field.” Camping and preparation. “If you’re tired (injured) and missed 7-10 days, it will be very difficult to get ready to play. His competitiveness, skill set, and health combination will play first. I got the opportunity to play the game.”

Again, Presley’s size does not matter.

“It didn’t matter to us at all. It returns to his competitiveness and his willingness to do whatever it takes to succeed,” Gandy said. “It overcomes his size and we do not see (his size) as a factor in our practice.”

The truth of what I’ve heard is that when you have players that many defenders can’t catch, if they are far less tackle, they will be on the list of guys trying to play. Presley made the list.
