It's halftime. Coaches across the Big 12 are huddled together discussing what they can do to win the remaining games in the second half.
It's halftime in Cowboy country, too. Our players are banged up and they're hurting. We're all wondering who might come back. And we're all concerned, because the season hasn't gone as planned.
The Cowboy faithful know a little something about this. They almost lost the program once. Our starters have been sidelined by injury before. But T. Boone and Gundy pulled us all together, and now, Oklahoma State is fighting again.
We've seen a lot of tough eras, a lot of downturns in seasons past. And, times when we didn't understand each other. It seems like we've lost our heart at times. When the fog of division, discord, and blame made it hard to see what lies ahead.
But after those trials, we all rallied around what was right, and acted as one. Because that's what we do. We find a way through tough times, and if we can't find a way, then we'll make one.
All that matters now is what's ahead. How do we come from behind? How do we come together? And, how do we win?
J.W. Walsh showed us it can be done. And, what's true about him is true about our entire team.
The Cowboys can't be knocked out with one punch. We get right back up again and when we do the world is going to hear the roar of our crowd.
Yeah, it's halftime Stillwater. And, our second half is about to begin.
