Hevt We're ImDrovin The one thing that any think- ing coach desires and works to- ward is steady improvement and I believe we are witnessing that with our Cowboys at this time. The cowpokes came out resem- bling what we had been hoping for this last Saturday night. They pretty much dominated the Utah State Aggies the first half, as they led in possession time 21:16 to 8:44, on their way to a 21-7 half-time lead(I am old enough that I sometimes have trouble remembor ng that the Aggies are not us). They eventually prevailed 31 to 17 to extend their won loss record to 3-1, the first time they've won their first three home games since 1992. They now have won five of their last seven games (A Team On The Rise). David Thompson had another very productive outing as he car- tied 39 times for 217 yards. Did you know that there have only been ten 1,000 yard rushing seasons in OSU history? There has also only been one Cowboy with back-to-back 1,000 yard rushing seasons. That was done by All-American Terry Miller, who had three from 1975-6-7. Thompson is on track with 621 yards to date after having gained 1,509 last season. We may be leading the nation at this time in one statistic. I have been unable to confirm this and it is possible that they may not even be keeping a record on this. The one I'm alluding to is penal- ties after a sizable gain. Again, the yellow flags were about as com- mon as a red-neck in Mississippi. This is one area that does not seem to be improving. Perhaps some of it is caused by an'overzeal- ous and youthful team. The offensive line continues to improve. They were splitting the Utah State line like I split infinitives. It was very evident as the OSU backs rushed for a total of 374 yards on 72 tries. A very possible emerging star presented itself in the person of Kevin Brown, a 240 pound freshman from McAlester. He was run- ning like an attorney chasing an ambulance as he gained 42 yards on only five carries. We have all seen players that we wished were playing for us. One of the beauties of this team is that we are see- ing them now playing for us. The Cowboys future is looking better all the time as we are saturated with youth (Something a lot of us have apparently misplaced). I have never given much of an approval to the booing that fans sometimes do. I would, at least, give our fans credit for one thing. They only boo the officials, not the players. That seems to be re- served for another Big Twelve team that happens to have its cam- pus inthe same state as ours, Here are some interesting facts you may wish to put in your pocket: OSU had gone five quarters without allowing a touchdown until Utah State scored in the second qua'rter. David Thompson recorded his 15th lOOyard rushinggame of his career as well as his ninth in the last 13 games. Toney Jones completed his first five passes of the night, OSU has scored 30 plus points in consecutive games for the first time since 1990. The next game will be at Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas on=,. October 5, when the challenge the Texas Longhorns. That means they will have two weeks to savor their 3-1 start and heal any pos- sible bruises. Ducks Unlimited committee sets fund-raising date The Payne County committee of Ducks Unlimited will hold its 20th annual banquet at the Community Buildir g of the Payne County Expo Center on October 5, 1996, at 6:30 p.m. "The Ducks Unlimited success story," said committee chairman Todd Swearingen, "is really starting to spread. Local Ducks Unlimited's fund-raising events held throughout the country last year contributed toward Ducks Unlimited's nation fund-raising effort of $77.6 million during 1995 alone. But what's even more important to realize is that this national fund-raising total must increase if the North American waterfowl habitat race is to be won.". Efforts like those of the Payne County committee are a vital part of Ducks Unlimited's ef-. forts: For information on how you can support Ducks Unlimited's pro- gram of wetlands conservation, contact Todd Swearingen at 405- 743-2655 for tickets and further details.
