Nobody ever thought OSU was going to lose either of its first two games against the Central bros (Arkansas and Michigan). But nobody thought Auburn was going to go to overtime against Jacksonville State and Washington State was going to lose to Portland State either.So while the outcomes of the first two games have been somewhat underwhelming, there’s still a silver lining.“We talk about it each week,” said Gundy last week. “For years we’ve had discussions about the parity in college football. It continues to grow each year. As the NCAA becomes more involved … it just continues to grow.”AdChoices广告It’s true. I thought of this as I watched Jacksonville State-Auburn on Saturday afternoon, internally hoping this would be the only “FCS puts a scare into land grant, agricultural school that isn’t the best program in its own state” game of the day.Turns out, it was.And despite all the weeping and gnashing of teeth, Oklahoma State is one of just 48 teams sporting a 2-0 record heading into the third week of the season.“We started out slow, but we got the ball rolling and we got the W,” said David Glidden on Saturday. “Coach Gundy said that we’re 2-0 and there are a lot of teams that aren’t like that, they don’t have that benefit of going into that next game undefeated. There are a lot of improvements to make, but we’ll move on and get things corrected.”last_img
