Andre Sexton, Oklahoma State linebacker, has taken it upon himself to be a one man source of bulletin board material for Georgia’s opener.
Two years later, Andre Sexton remembers the famous hedges at Georgia’s Sanford Stadium. He remembers the “G” on the Bulldogs’ helmets, the huge crowd, and the excitement of opening a college football season knowing much of the country was watching.
Most of all, though, he remembers the fear.
Back before the Oklahoma State Cowboys had grown accustomed to attention — before their coach became a YouTube sensation and their national ranking vaulted into the Top 10 — Sexton and his teammates didn’t know how to handle it. So they allowed themselves to be intimidated.
But with another season-opening date against Georgia a little more than a month away, the Cowboys can’t wait to show how much they’ve changed.
“Now we know,” said Sexton, a senior OSU linebacker, “Georgia’s the one that has to be scared. Not us.”
Damn, son, I’m not sure I would have said that.
