Fans Invited To OSU Selfie Day

STILLWATER - Head coach Mike Gundy met with the media Tuesday and was very relaxed as he started by giving details about his decision last week to dismiss running back and return specialist Tyreek Hill from the Oklahoma State footballteam following an arrest on a domestic violence incident with his girlfriend and subsequent charges including a felony charge of assault by strangulation.

Gundy was calm and in a good mood although discussing a tough topic. He was still very encouraged by what the Bedlam win did for his team and shortly after the gathering with a large group of media and their interviewing players this release came out inviting fans to Stillwater on Saturday to mingle with your favorite players and coaches.

Fans have the opportunity to interact with members of the Oklahoma State football team and get a first-hand look at OSU's sparkling Sherman Smith Training Center at 12:30 p.m. Saturday for the first-ever "OSU Selfie Day" in the indoor practice facility.

The event is geared toward letting fans take photos with their favorite players and visit with them personally in a casual setting. OSU asks that fans not bring in any items to be autographed, but they are encouraged to bring cameras and to use "#OSUSelfieDay" as the hashtag for photos you share on social media.

Parking is open, with Lot 99 (the lot immediately west of the Sherman Smith Center and immediately south of the Greenwood Tennis Center) the closest place to park.

Due to NCAA recruiting legislation, prospective football student-athletes are not allowed to attend this event. This event will take place during a designated "dead period" in the sport of football. NCAA rules prohibit prospective student-athletes from visiting an institution's campus during a dead period.

Gundy clearly said that the Bedlam game has really helped his team mature and grow in confidence.

"It did a lot," Gundy said. "Just the approach and them pushing through. At halftime I got on them because they were letting the running back run on them and I know he's a good player but they weren't being as physical as they needed to be. They needed the challenge.

"The spirits and the attitude that has been lifted from this game and it is never too early and you can certainly tell the spirits of this guys. We're going to get 12 quality practices in and the young guys are going to work a lot. It could be the biggest win for us in my career here. When we won at Missouri we were eighth or ninth in the country and this win really got us over the hump of losing five in a row and the mature players on our team had never lost like that. It has done a lot for us as a team."
