Holy mother of crap, just how debased is Oklahoma State when it comes to T. Boone Pickens?
Cowboy fans are incensed about OSU’s slow start this season (especially after the preseason bragging). Athletic Director Mike Holder in trying to smooth the troubled waters, tells the troubled throngs that better days are ahead. That history says the school can rebound.
History, like in big wins in the past? Or like Barry Sanders becoming one of the all time greats in college football?
Nope. History like in T. Boone Pickens, aka Mister D:
Holder also invoked the name of OSU’s top donor, Boone Pickens, as he called Saturday’s Texas Tech game an opportunity to make improvements out of failure. He pointed at Pickens’ loss of his company, Mesa Petroleum, in 1996, and how Pickens rebounded from that loss.
“He turned that into the greatest run he’s ever had,” Holder said. “Losing that company is the best thing that ever happened to him.”
Inspiring choice, that.
Look, just get it over with and rename the damned university after Pickens. Or at least establish a School of Arse Kissing in his name. Something.
