The Oklahoma State football program has received quite a bit of attention this season. Back in September, Sports Illustrated released a five-part expose on the Oklahoma State football program that promised to shed light on major problems within the program. The series of reports was heavily scrutinized at the time. Of course, the report was forgotten once the season really got rolling, as the Cowboys have experienced great success — they are now up to 10th in the latest BCS standings. But on Monday, Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy was asked about the report, and particularly how it has affected recruiting recently. Oddly enough, Gundy said that more recruits have shown interest since the SI report:  Gundy on SI aftermath: “I think it (report and how team responded) helped us in recruiting.” Hmm. #okstate — Kelly Hines (@KellyHinesTW) November 18, 2013 Gundy says OSU had more recruits interested after SI project and doesn’t know why else except the added publicity of the program. #okstate — Kelly Hines (@KellyHinesTW) November 18, 2013 It’s funny how things work out sometimes — it seems that more exposure, good or bad, seems to help schools get on the map in the eyes of young players.
