STILLWATER, Okla. — The five-year anniversary of Oklahoma State University coach Mike Gundy’s “I’m a man! I’m 40!” rant was brought up during the OSU media day press conference. Gundy said there were some benefits for the program.

“I think we are a better football team,” Gundy said. “We started recruiting better football players after that. That made a big difference. Players win games. Coaches just have to guide them a little bit in the right direction.”

Since the famous postgame press conference, the Cowboys have gone 46-15. The Cowboys have been in five straight bowl games since then, with a 3-2 record — including the program’s first BCS bowl appearance and victory with the Fiesta Bowl win over Stanford.
