There's pressure any time an athlete steps onto Boone Pickens Stadium. There is pressure to perform in practice and always pressure to make plays on game day in front of the nearly 60,000 members of the sea of orange. It was a different kind of pressure on Tuesday for 17 recent Cowboys and one player a year removed in Hubert Anyiam as scouts from 25 different NFL teams watched OSU's Pro Day.

Felix and Trina Curry have already contributed greatly to the Oklahoma State football program. Talented wide receiver C.J. Curry is a redshirt freshman currently participating in spring practice.

STILLWATER - As Oklahoma State came out to start spring football practice Monday both the offense and the defense welcomed new coaches. The question was how long would the Cowboys be a coach short on defense. The answer was not long as just after practice began head coach Mike Gundy announced the hiring of Tim Duffie, a former Texas Tech starting linebacker during the Spike Dykes era.
The Bears go on the road for the Big 12 tournament, looking to make a run that will secure their spot in the NCAA tournament. First up? Oklahoma State.
The honors are just starting to pile up for Oklahoma State freshman Marcus Smart, who was named a first-team All-American and the national Freshman of the Year by Sporting News on Monday. He becomes the first Cowboy to ever be honored as the national Freshman of the Year by any publication.
One thing is evident when watching the Oklahoma State Cowboys in spring practice. While the quarterbacks are competing for the starting job and trying to put their best foot forward to show head coach Mike Gundy and new offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich they are the best man for the job, it is not a situation where the competitors don't get along.
