The Oklahoma State vs Tulsa game didn't get kicked off until after midnight last night and finished at 3:35 am Sunday morning with the Cowboys winning 59-33. Ok St.'s outspoken coach Mike Gundy wasn't too pleased with playing that late...

“I’m not real excited about playing at that time, to be honest with you,”...“I’m going to try to do the best I can to be careful about what I say, but there comes a certain point in the middle of the morning where your body is not used to functioning. Whether young people stay up at night or not, they don’t exert themselves at 2 and 3 in the morning. I had concerns about injuries on both teams; I was really concerned about losing players.

“At some point we have to have some thought put in to the well being of student athletes. I know everybody has to go along with it and we can’t control it; it’s just not the best situation.”
Gundy was already riled up about the original 9:00 kickoff...

"You can’t control the weather but when you (schedule) to start at 9, you put yourself in that situation,”...“Anything can happen. I just don’t think it’s the best thing in the world to do, I’ll be honest with you.

“(The players) have to go to class on Monday. It’s going to take a couple days to get over an evening like this for all of us. It was very unusual. I’m not sure why we had TV timeouts during the game, to be honest with you. I guess somebody paid for that so we have to, but at some point you have to think, ‘Who’s really watching at 3 in the morning?’
