Leach, Gundy, and Jack Arute talk 420
It’s April 20th or 4-20. Jack Arute began the College Football Playbook on Sirius/XM radio by saying we all know what 4-20 is.
Leach’s response…a lethargic ”What’s that?”
Special guest Mike Gundy chimed in, “420? That was the minimum number of yards Coach Leach’s teams threw for each Saturday.”
Gundy, once again, is excited about his offense.
“Offensively, we’re going to be as good or better as we were. Statistically, I don’t know, but I know we’ll be as effective. I think for the first time ever since I’ve been here, we are two deep on the offensive line.”
Gundy pointed out that having a 27 year old quarterback helps.
“It’s been a great advantage for us. He’s (Weeden) married so he has to go home at night. He understands our tempo. He does a really nice job managing the clock, it reminds me of the NFL guys when they get 1:34 left. They get so many plays cuz they know how to run the operation.”
On the defensive side, Gundy said, “We’re young again at defensive tackle and it seems like we say that every year. We’re almost 2 deep at safety and corner. I think we’ll be as good as we’ve ever been in the secondary.”
“We need to find someone in the middle of the defense to make tackles.”
Overall, “People are going to know who we are. It’s not like Oklahoma State is going to surprise anybody this year.”
UPDATE: Jack Arute just finished the second segment with, "Going back to the start of our show, 4-20 is the celebration of marajuana, just so you know."
Leach simply responded as if in shock, "Wow."
