That was most likely the case for a majority of the estimated 17,500 fans that filled the south side of Boone Pickens Stadium as the Oklahoma State Cowboys officially concluded spring drills. But to those who follow the Pokes on a fairly con- sistent basis, the approx- imately two-hour event still left some unanswered questions that plagued the team at least through last season and in some instances before. But in all fairness to the coaching staff and players, there wasn't any need to do too much in terms of complexity and physicality. Yes, the offenses of both the Orange and Black teams were very much basic. The same holds true for the two defenses as well. No major injunes were reported and folks for the most part left with a warm and fuzzy feel- ing, especially since they got to spend some up close and personal time with players afterward. "The scrimmage went well for us from a health standpoint. We were able to tackle and had a physi- cal scrimmage," said head coach Mike Gundy after- ward. One thing that was missing was any kind of establishment of a running game. But in taking a look at the statistics handed out to the media afterward, the number of rushing and passing plays were nearly equal. However. there were no breakaway threats by either group. That was one of the things that was an issue last season. But that didn't seem to be an issue with Gundy. One of the decisions coaches will be making heading into the fall drills will be who will backup See SPRING Page B2 Tracksters shine at Tecumseh TECUMSEH - Per- kins-Tryon High School tracksters brought home several medals from last Friday's Tecumseh Savages Track and Field Meet.

"Thanks ... we're going to be okay," said Hassel, a former two-sport star at Stillwater High. Hassel's optimism was significant since the Cow- boys entered the Baylor series saddled with a four- game losing streak. Hassel and the Cow- boys put their optimism into action with a sweep of the Bears, a sweep which featured standout pitching, timely hitting and impres- sive defense. "I absolutely believed we would get things going ... I knew it was just a matter of time," Hassel said prior to a Monday practice. "It all started clicking for us. We were pressing too much and just let our love of the game take over. "It showed up last week- end that when we play good baseball we are a tough team to beat. Baylor has a good team.
