OSU football: Mike Gundy shows support for commemorative jerseys to honor troops
STILLWATER — Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy sported a new-look hoodie on Monday.
Gray with the Cowboy Battalion logo on the chest. An American flag and OSU badge on one sleeve. A Big 12 logo on the other.
The hoodie mimicked OSU’s new commemorative jerseys unveiled Sunday to honor troops. The Cowboys will wear them Saturday against Kansas.
They will be all gray with several nods to the on-campus ROTC program, Altus Air Force base and Folds of Honor.

Nike approached OSU to be a program to commemorate troops the weekend after Veteran’s Day.
“It’s certainly a no-brainer for me,” Gundy said. “You guys know how I feel about people that are willing to put their life on the line and fight on a daily basis for the freedom of this country. I think it’s pretty cool for us to be able to represent them and show them our support.
“It doesn’t make a difference if you come from the city, the country. If you’re white, black, Democrat, Republican, I think everybody has an obligation to support the people that are willing to go fight for our freedom every day.”
