T. Boone Pickens pens letter to Mike Gundy, is ‘proud’ of coach

Oklahoma State megadonor T. Boone Pickens showed support for coach Mike Gundy on Monday, tweeting a note saying he is “proud” of Gundy and his team despite the 62-52 Bedlam loss on Saturday. Gundy and Pickens have been contentious in the past, but the note shows their relationship has smoothed.

The Cowboys’ path to the College Football Playoff this season is muddled, but Pickens tweeted he is confident the “best is yet to come” for the program.

James Washington in walking boot ahead of Iowa State game

After exiting Bedlam with an ankle injury, star receiver James Washington is in a walking boot, Gundy said. The Cowboys are hopeful to have him practicing by the end of the week.

Washington is the top target of quarterback Mason Rudolph, who Iowa State coach Matt Campbell called a “robo quarterback” Monday.
