Three Players Left Home From Holiday Bowl

Before the Oklahoma State Cowboys took a break from practice in Stillwater last Sunday to head home for several days with family the team knew that junior wide receiver Jeremy Broadway had been dismissed from the team. But now that everybody is in San Diego for the bowl game there are three other players missing.

There were two that were late arriving because of travel difficulties, but these other players aren't coming to San Diego.

"We had Jeremy Broadway and we had, somebody else, Trent Perkins is not here," said Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy. "We have Trent Perkins that is not here and Terrance Anderson is not here and Markelle Martin is not here."

When asked to explain the absences the Cowboys' head coach was consistent. "We are never getting into that," said Gundy.

Gundy has never elaborated on players situations in both discipline and academics. However, it is believed that Perkins, a backup left tackle; Anderson, second on the depth chart at cornerback behind senior Jacob Lacey, and Martin, a true freshman that has played some at corner and on special teams, were all vicitims of academics.

Gundy did not add anything on their future statis other than to say that they are still in the program and just not on this trip.

Junior college All-American Andrew Mitchell is the backup at both tackle positions on the offensive line for Tuesday night's Holiday Bowl game against Oregon. Junior college transfer Maurice Gray will backup both corner positions. Losing both Anderson and Martin puts some stress at that position.

Wide receiver Damian Davis was late arriving Thursday night after practice because of flight delays. Defensive tackle Ahmad Jones arrived during practice, again, a product of flight delays.
