Part 1: Josh Holliday Discusses 2023 Season

February 6, 2023

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State head coach Josh Holliday met with the media on Monday to discuss the upcoming 2023 season, which kicks off next week on Friday, Feb. 17 against Missouri.

“Certainly have learned about them through the fall, and when guys come back from Christmas it's always interesting to see how guys manage themselves in December and January,” Holliday said. “I think you really learn about your team when you put the real uniform on in the spring season. We had a couple games during the fall to see how kids would respond, a game against the (Texas) Rangers (prospects) and a game against Air Force, so we had a little bit of a dress rehearsal, but there's just something about the spring that has a different edge to it. You are always learning about your players, always striving to see kids grow and improve, and I think that's where we are at right now. In preparing for the season, we're still trying to get better. Ultimately once the season starts, you have to keep getting better as you go, and that usually happens, especially when guys are adjusting to a new level, whether it be a freshman adjusting to Division One or guys that transfer in who are getting used to how it is to play here versus where they were before. Yes, we have a feel for guys, but also that changes once a season starts. You know, you see it all the time in college sports, preseason expectations for one team may not always be as accurate because you can't accurately predict how newcomers might perform and when guys do a great job the team might look different than it did coming in. We are excited to see how guys take these opportunities and grow.”

Select players of Nolan McLean, Roc Riggio, Marcus Brown and Ryan Bogusz met with the media ahead of Holliday to discuss their progressions from last season, various newcomers and returning players.

“It feels great to be back doing what we love to do with a good group of guys; we've got a good group this year. It's going to be fun to compete with this team and get after it like we did last year because, I think I can speak for all of us, it's going to be fun to get out on the field and go play.”
