Watch: Mike Gundy Ahead of the West Virginia Game

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy met with the media on Monday to put a bow on the Bedlam loss and look ahead to the regular season finale against West Virginia this Saturday, Nov. 26.

He addressed several topics throughout the close to 40 minutes, including Bedlam, the upcoming game against West Virginia, as well as the topic below.

It’s Senior Day for the Cowboys, which will honor several Pokes who have made a huge impact on the program during their time in Stillwater.

"I think that the fans are going to remember him a long time as a tough guy,” Gundy said of quarterback Spencer Sanders. “His competitive nature, plays injured. He fights. You know, he took more hits Saturday, right? I mean, I'm sure all you guys now are cringing for me when he runs and takes hits instead of sliding. That's who he is. That's why we like him. That's why the team respects him. He didn't play as good as he would have wanted to, but we didn't rush the ball and we protected him very below average. That's what you get. So, he forced a couple of throws that he should have just said, 'You know what, it's okay. We can kick a field goal or punt.' That's a difficult thing for a quarterback to understand. They always try to make a play. But his legacy will be his toughness, his long-term ability to play — I don't even know how many games he's played in now, somebody knows, 50-something. I don't know. Between him and the guy from West Virginia, the defensive lineman, (Dante Stills), that's been there since the 70s. When I turned the film on, I didn't even know he was still playing. He's playing again this year. I think he's got what, 55 starts or something. But that's what people are going to remember (Sanders) as. He's just been here all the time for five years."

I always went home for Thanksgiving when I was a student... I think our dorm closed, and you had to make special arrangements to stay there. Being from Tulsa, I brought more than one out of State student home with me.

Same here, I am from OKC originally and had a student from Taiwan and one from Sri Lanka I always invited to spend a couple of days during Thanksgiving week at my family's house who were fellow Engineering Majors that had no place to go during the Thanksgiving Holidays because the campus and dorms and dining halls were all closed down!
