-What are you most curious about seeing today in our 30 minutes of practice we’ll watch this morning?

-Mario Verduzco says Adrian Martinez needs to have less turnovers…how does that happen?

-Mike Gundy wants spring football games against other schools…are there more pros or cons to the idea?

-Sip has discussed in the past how the idea of an exhibition spring game against someone else certainly is intriguing, but it also creates some unneeded drama if Nebraska were to get exposed in the game and bring doubt into the offseason -Gundy says there’s not enough depth on Oklahoma State to provide an entertaining spring game, which is the case most places…who really has high-quality third and fourth team depth? It’s at least worthy of a conversation. But, would ultimately, as Sip feared….result in overreaction and high drama. Fun!
