Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy is not apologizing for his team destroying FCS opponent Savannah State 84-0 last Saturday. Savannah State left town with a $385,000 check and this week they will collect $475,000 for playing Florida State.

“Well, we didn’t run up the score. We took most of our starters out in the first quarter. So we did everything we could to keep the score down,” Gundy said to Phoenix radio station XTRA 910.

Oklahoma State plays Arizona on Saturday. But Gundy says there is a reason why his school and teams like Savannah State play each other.

“It was a tough situation for everybody. Scheduling has become very difficult in the Big 12 with the realignment over the last few years, and to find teams to fit on certain home dates,” he said. “We certainly want to play home games and then two-for-ones versus one-for-one and how much money’s involved, it’s been difficult for everybody. But, we did the best we could to keep the game in check.”

Hey "I'M A MAN I'M A MAN", YOU most certainly ran up the score by specific definition of the phrase. Moreover, Mr. Didn't get any respect last year, why are you playing such cupcakes to open your season to begin with. Why not get some testicles - you know - since you have such a penchant for blowing your horn.
