Oklahoma State’s 2016 Alamo Bowl Rings Have 11-2 Record Engraved

Written by Kyle Porter

Mike Gundy gave an all-time #wellactually recently when he rubber stamped Oklahoma State’s Alamo Bowl rings to read 11-2 even though Oklahoma State lost to OU, Baylor and *******Central Michigan********* during the regular season.

Gundy’s crusade to count the CMU loss as a win lasted throughout the regular season and into the CFB Playoff conversation. It was emblazoned forever into the Alamo Bowl rings which is both hilarious and awesome.

“In my opinion, our conference should take charge and stick up for us and say, ‘You know what? We’re going to get this right,’” Gundy said according to the O’Colly last year. “Or there’s gotta be some lawyer out there who’s willing to make a name for himself. He ought to be all over it for a flat fee.

“If I don’t try to do what’s right for my players, I wouldn’t want to play for me,” Gundy added. “They can’t do anything. I don’t have a law degree so I can’t do anything. I got a C in political science.”

“It’s the best I can do, but in the end, they should just give both teams the win, and the officials or whoever’s in charge should say, ‘It’s a massive screw-up,’ and give both teams the win. I don’t think that taking it away from Central Michigan is the answer, but it’s a win-win.”

He can order his boys some proper rings, though, which it appears is exactly what he did.

  • Russell James

    This is a Baylor move.

    • Hal

      No…it’s an OSU move

    • Scott

      No, there was no sexual misconduct involved in this engraving

  • PonchoPete

    which is worse, giving out alamo bowl rings or that we cant accept the fact we were 10-3 last season? sad!

    • Ryan

      Well, you get a ring for any bowl game you go to, so that part of your comment is stupid. Also, when the clock read 0:00 against CMU, we were ahead, so 10-3 is debatable.

      • PonchoPete

        actually when the game ended at 0:00 CMU was ahead meaning we had 3 losses

        • T-Bone

          You are talking about that scrimmage after the game that the refs had us do. We were ahead when the actual game ended.

        • Glen W. Walker

          Then you must be able to admit that the game ended at 0:00 twice. The first resulted in our win, the second resulted in altering reality. You can’t say the game ended at 0:00 with CMU ahead and omit the fact that 0:00 happened before that extra play.

      • Hal

        Great punctuation Ryan. 11-2 tho

    • Stepdaddy

      Agree completely! Just goes to show what type person Gundy is. He is still unwilling to acknowledge that the reason why OSU lost the game was 4 quarters of terrible football against a horrible opponent.

      • Stepdaddy

        We lost to CMu Bc the refs didn’t know the rules (they probably ate the same paint chips that you enjoyed as a child).

        • Hal

          I think you might have gotten into the paint chips you replied to your own comment stepdaddy

          • Stepdaddy

            No. Some else is pretending to me. I disagree regarding the reason for the loss. Did the refs screw up? Yes. But screwed up the whole game, plus he did not know the rules. If he either coaches the game properly or knows the rules, OSU would have won. If it had been a well coached game against two equally matched opponents then I would not be so hard on Gundy. He should have never put OSU in that position.

          • Stepdaddy

            wrong. Gundy knew the rules. He knew an offensive penalty (intention grounding in this case) would have resulted in a ten second run off. The refs didn’t enforce the rules they are paid to understand while both MAC and little XII sat on their hand. Sure we played bad for most of the game but the refs should not determine a winner of a college football game by misinterpreting a rule that they are again PAID to understand. If the shoe was on the OU or BAMA foot we all know that the game would have been overturned. Why do you hate gundy so much Stepdaddy? is it because he slept with your wife and now your stuck raising kids (because you’re step-father to some other dudes kids)?

          • Mark

            Because he is an OU troll in disguise 😉

          • Stepdaddy

            I don’t hate Gundy. I just try to see him for what he is: a good coach in a mediocre conference. We all hope he becomes a great coach. For some reason you are really upset by comments. Perhaps it is because you fanaticize about OSU football and Mike Gundy being something that they are not. Notice your disagreement with my comments are not based in reality. You say Gundy knew the rules. Reality, immediately following the game Gundy apologized for not knowing the rules and not thinking through the intentional grounding issue. You say this would not have happened to OU or Bama. Reality, it did happen OU against Oregon. Guess what? The Sooners count the loss to Oregon as a loss. You say Gundy slept with my wife and I am raising his kids. The realty is I only have my own kids and I don’t think Gundy cheats on his wife. Perhaps you should take a deep breath, and quit fantasizing about Mike Gundy so much. Quit man crushing on Gundy.

          • Stepdaddy

            also i am now the real Stepdaddy you are an imposter.

          • Stepdaddy

            I think it says something that I irritate you so bad that you want to use my call sign. The fact is if I wasn’t right about Gundy, you wouldn’t care. Stop man crushing and come back to reality. You don’t have to worship Mike Gundy to be an OSU fan. It is okay to see him for what he is.

          • Stepdaddy

            Sometimes I lie and tell the phone sex hotline girls that I have a six incher when it is only 5 inches.

          • EdmondPoke

            This is fantastic

          • Adam M.
      • Robert Martin

        Sometimes you win ugly or lose ugly. This is a completely unusual case in which the refs didn’t know the rule. Bottom line, it was an ugly game, CMU shouldn’t have never been on the same playing field with OSU and Tulsa beating their brains out in the Orlando bowl proves It! Gundy standing up for what’s right is highly admirable in my eyes. He knows how bad they played that day and was doing their best to just get the game over with somehow and just get a W and move on and get prepared for the next game! But the refs made sure that wasn’t going to happen.

        • Stepdaddy

          I agree that he and team did a great job of moving past an embarrassing loss. I have never heard Gundy own up to the fact that he got out coached, otherwise OSU would not have been in that position. All he has done for a year is whine to media about how that he lost the game because of bad officiating.

          • Robert Martin

            If you hear of a coach owning up to a loss please tell me. If I was a coach I would not own up to a loss. I’d own up to we played poorly and probably did a bad coaching job preparing. Funny how coaches are on the sidelines and you have 11 on offense and 11 on defense that are actually playing the game.. those players didn’t play well that day, did you not see the game? To many big plays letting CMU QB play way above his potential and OSU letting them just hang around. I’ve seen these kinda games in high school and college multiple times. Alot in high school when the better team doesn’t win because they play down to the other teams level and don’t play up to theirs! Happens every Friday and Saturday during football season and sometimes in the pros.

          • Stepdaddy

            How many times have we heard Bob Stoops say after Ohio State and Houston, and Clemson that they got out coached? Following everyone of those games that exactly what Bob Stoops said. Good grief quit making excuses for Gundy!
            1. Did he coach the gamed? No
            2. Did he know and understand the rules? No.
            3. Does anyone beside the mullet church believe OSU won the game? No.
            The smart thing to do is move and quit drawing attention to one Gundy’s most embarrassing losses.

          • Robert Martin

            Stepdaddy, Bob Stoops had to say they got outcoached because they got the crap kicked out of them, look at all those scores! Those games were decided in the 3rd quarters, not on some fluke ass play decided by the refs! There is no excuse, they lost! But they lost that game amid lots of controversy and not being decided because they were getting their brakes beat off them!

          • Robert Martin

            And besides, how many embarrassing losses has Bob Stoops been a part of the last 10 or more years? I can think of quite a few all the way back to about 2003! Really I can’t even count them. The Boise State fiasco, the USC blowout, the West Virginia stomping, losses to LSU and Florida when they were better, the list goes on……..

    • T-Bone

      Except we weren’t 10-3. We beat CMU. When the ball hit the stands, it was over. If the zebras and some committee tries to change that after the game was over, that’s on them. Since they were wrong, we don’t have to accept their wrongness. 11-2 baby.

      • PonchoPete

        just checked online to make sure i wasnt going crazy, but it still says we’re 10-3. We did in fact lose to CMU, the score was 30-27 they had more points than us thats usually how games are decided, and “some committee” didnt change the results which is why OSU finished the season 10-3. You sound like an ou fan

        • T-Bone

          Since OSU was ahead when the game ended, by rule, as the ball hit the stands, someone changed the outcome, then they put that fake news out there for you to see. So yeah, some committee did change that. They knew OSU had won the game but were not man enough to declare the truth. That declaration doesn’t change the truth. It just changes the mind of those who don’t want to see the truth.

          • PonchoPete

            you really should start attending football games in Norman, you’ll fit in better with that crowd

          • T-Bone

            Since I went to OSU, I fit in good with that crowd.

        • CaptainObvious

          You sound like you think the popular vote matters in the presidential election.

          • PonchoPete

            wrong. Im accepting the results how they were, not how I wanted it to play out in my mind. You don’t see me trying to explain different ways that OSU “won” that game do you? sad!

          • Tre

            I just spit my drink out on this comment

  • Pistols Fired!!

    I didn’t mind Gundy wanting more money… until reading this. When your ego is doing your reasoning, the end is near. jmho I read the article expecting to find out about a typo… I am so Gundy-naïve.

  • BBJD

    The Rings are for the players to remember their season. I guess most of them remember that CMU game as a win and I don’t blame them for doing that. If they want the rings to say 11-2 they should. Anyone who complains about this or says this makes us look bad is trying too hard.

    • PonchoPete

      i guess they could also remember Bedlam as a win also if they want. Making rings that say 11 wins when you know you won 10 is trying too hard

      • Hal

        we were winning the 1st quarter i think, let me check my notebook i think we are 13-0 if we are remembering games that should have happened. We want bama

      • Scott Walderbach

        Fact 1: When the CMU game ended, OSU was ahead on the scoreboard.
        Fact 2: The referees threw a flag and made an incorrect (per the rulebook) decision to award
        CMU an untimed down.
        Fact 3: The game was over and anything that occured after that point should be
        considered irrelevant.
        Fact 4: See fact # 1.

        • Bootstrap Bill

          Fact 5: We played poorly against an inferior opponent and put ourselves in position to have one bad call impact the game.
          Fact 6: The OSU defense allowed a touchdown on a single untimed down from the 50 yard line. (pathetic)
          Fact 7: The final score was a 30-27 defeat.
          Fact 8: OSU went 10-3 in 2016.
          Fact 9: These rings will fetch lower prices at their eventual pawn shop destination due to the historical inaccuracy.
          Fact 10: Disregard Fact 9. These rings don’t matter.

          • BBJD

            So why are you upset about them? You said it yourself these rings don’t matter but they do matter for the players who played all those games. And if in their mind they went 11-2 and there is a reasonable explanation of why they put that instead of 10-3 (which they have). Also it isn’t a bad call when a ref makes up a rule it is called making up a rule.

          • Bootstrap Bill

            Not upset about them at all. I made the suggested edits. I do think if they are getting rings based on what happened in their mind they should dream bigger.

          • Adam M.

            Fact 5a and 10 are actually opinions.

          • Bootstrap Bill

            Good catch. Updated.

        • Adam M.

          I’ve been going through this fact logic for 10 minutes and still haven’t gotten to the part where CMU won. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4f176c7382d64f47ae080169bd119cea2da82b5c80240700bd512dc5cb0440a8.gif

      • BBJD

        They could if they wanted to but they have no legitimate reason to.

        They have a reason to claim the CMU game considering they won it by the rules of Football and the refs made up a rule that cost them the game.

        It isn’t a big deal outside of something that the 2016 team will always share and they have the right to look at it however they want they played the games.

  • Saucy Takes

    So many Morons ^^^

  • Stiffler’s Dad

    Like any of this matters. It’s all noise coming from a state where people don’t mean to actually go, they’re just forced to drive through it.

    You’re not even the second best school that uses OSU for it’s letters. You lost to a MAC school. Time to give up and go back to “russlin’ cattle” or whatever it is you “do” to bovines for entertainment there.

    • T-Bone

      We didn’t lose to the MAC school. That’s the point.

  • I love how so many are taking this so seriously. It’s Gundy. He doesn’t care. He’s going to do what he thinks is right and that’s it. I think it’s hilarious.

    • Robert Martin

      Agreed..

  • Kyle

    In other news, the worlds largest salt deposit was found underneath Stillwater, Oklahoma where Oklahoma State University is located.

  • Disappointed Cowboy

    This is stupid. People need to let this loss go. If the situation had been reversed, and we’d won on a mistake, Gundy and co. would all take the win.

    He’s admitted that the fault is his own for not properly standing up against that call. Need to let this go rather than continue to beat this horse when all it does is reinforce the perception that OSU plays poor football and whines about it later. Living in Texas, local and national media continue to slam Gundy/OSU for keeping this part of the news cycle.

    Smh

    • Stepdaddy

      Could not agree more! Gundy thinks he is being smart, but everybody outside of his mullet church realizes the best thing is to quit reminding people that:
      1. OSU scheduled CMU;
      2. That CMU kicked OSU ass for 4 quarters; and
      3. That when game was on the line Gundy stood there and pissed his leg;

      • Robert Martin

        Seriously…. there is no way on this earth you are a cowboy fan and make those kinds of comments…no way in hell! For starters central Michigan as poor as OSU played were still ahead at the whistle! You can’t disagree with that statement I just made. OSU played poorly and maybe deserved to lose, but they were still ahead before this major screw up! They lost die to an untimed down givin by refs that didn’t know what they were doing apparently. OSU lost their record is 10-3 Ok, you’ve made your point stepdaddy… now haul a#@ back to norman.

        • stepdaddy

          It is hilarious that you can’t handle truth. You want live an fantasy land. You don’t have to worship Mike Gundy to be an OSU fan. It is okay to see him for what he really is. He talks tough in the off season, then gets boot stomped, makes excuses, and whines, then doesn’t again the next season.

          • Robert Martin

            And your Daddy in Norman does the same thing. Talks a big game, talks about how good their recruiting classes are and the analysts and all the powers to be rank them in the top 10 or top 5 in recruiting and still can’t win! They got manhandled by Houston and got the brakes beat of them by Ohio State… then they had to have a track meet with Texas Tech to get out with that win. Beat a crappy auburn team in the sugar bowl…

          • Robert Martin

            Big game Bobby does the same thing. OU gets the brakes beat off them 2 out their first 3 games then has to survive 3 more games versus TCU and Texas and their track meet they had with Texas Tech….. I can handle the truth OSU lost that game and that’s what will go down in the record books… but it should go down with an asterisk beside it… and a note attached to it saying the ncaa refs don’t know how to make a call and don’t know the rules. You don’t have to worry I’m saying OSU lost the game…. but amid controversy.

  • 6Gun

    OSU’s record last year was 10-3, period! Putting 11-2 on the Alamo Bowl rings is more smoke & mirrors. In order to have been 11-2 last year, both Gundy and Holder should have stood up with a spine immediately following the game, and very publically made clear that they were calling out the incompetence of both the Mid-American (on-field) and Big XII (reply booth) refs, and they were protesting on OSU’s behalf until the game’s outcome was corrected. In this situation they could have easily done this as the game’s outcome was erroneously changed after the game was concluded. Why did neither man do this, because both men are extremely political, and have demonstrated they have no balls or spine when push comes to shove!

    • T-Bone

      Erroneously= 11-2

  • Kevin

    You OSU fans want to be/claim to be a big-time football school now. Having a coach threatening to leave every year, growing mullets, buying Alamo Bowl rings, getting butt-hurt about losing to a MAC school at home….that’s not a big time program.

    • Robert Martin

      Have you listened to the excuses and reasons from our southerly neighbor why they cant beat a big time football program!

      • Kevin

        Please tell me that you aren’t claiming that OU “cant beat a big time football program”? OU has lost more National Title games in the Stoops era (3) than they’ve won (1). But, they’ve beaten Notre Dame, Alabama, Auburn, Texas, and Tennessee twice WITHIN THE LAST 5 YEARS! Those are all “big time football programs”

        • Robert Martin

          Depends on how you look at it. Tennessee not that good. Texas is terrible and has been for awhile now and OU still has trouble with winning against them or they lose when they shouldn’t. Auburn was not that good. Alabama was a great win. Notre Dame was down. OU has gone 8-8 over the last 16 years in bowl games. With ugly losses to USC, WV, Boise, A&M, and Clemson twice. Other losses that they should have won in my opinion was Florida, LSU. OU is a big time football program but hasn’t shown consistency beating top tier programs year after year. Mostly in bowl games. Beat Florida State for its only title in 16 years. Beat arkansas 10-3, beat wash state 34-14, lost to LSU 21-14, beat Oregon 17-14, lost ugly to USC 55-19, lost to BSU, lost ugly to WV 48-28, lost to florida 24-14, beat Stanford, beat icon, beat Iowa, lost badly to A&M, beat alabama, lost badly to Clemson twice 40-6, 37-17, beat Auburn. 8-8 record when they should be at least 11-5 If not 13-3 with 2 more titles. IMHO….

          • Unsilent Majority

            I’m still not quite sure what about that Bama win was a “great” win. Even some of my OU friends don’t even really talk about that game as they know the victory came at the expense of a deflated football program stunned out of being in the NC….

          • Robert Martin

            Well… I understand to a point. But due to recent successes and hype and beating all the teams Alabama has beaten in recent years, I would still rate that as a great win! Alabama should have came in that game with no excuses because they lost and ended up in the sugar bowl instead of playing for a NC… Alabama and Saben seems to think they’re invincible and they are arrogant especially Saben! Loved seeing Clemson beat them last year the way they did. Going into that sugar bowl game nobody gave OU a chance and after they scored so easily in their first drive it looked as though they’d win easily but OU played a solid game on both sides.

          • Kevin

            If youre going to use that logic to say the Bama win doesn’t count, then you cant count the OU losses to Boise St, A&M Clemson once, & West Virginia. They all count, my man

          • Kevin

            You said big time football PROGRAM. A program is built over decades. They’ve gone 8-8 in bowl games. You said “OU cant beat a big time football program”. They swept Tennessee, swept Florida St, beat ND in South Bend, have gone 3-0 against Bama in the 16 yr span youre referring to, and thoroughly beat Auburn last year. Again, ill admit they’ve underachieved at times. Ill admit they’ve gotten embarrassed at times. But, they’ve more than shown theyre capable of beating big time programs. Also, the USC and Florida losses were to arguably the best teams in those programs histories. LSU….yes. They SHOULDVE won that one. But again, ive disproved your opinion of “they cant beat big time programs”. There are no bigger than ND, Bama, and FSU

          • Robert Martin

            Your right…. ?! But you can’t deny they have underachieved and struggled with good teams…

          • Kevin

            Typical uninformed go to for anti Stoops guys is the “won with Blakes recruits”. For one, that’s partially true. There were a bunch of holdovers from the Blake era. You fail to mention (probably because you don’t know) that other than Rocky Calmus and Roy Williams, the vast majority of the starters that were Blake guys were playing completely different positions. Some weren’t even on the same side of the ball when Blake left. Also, here are a few names that came after Blake left: Josh Heupel, Quentin Griffin, Torrance Marshall, Trent Smith, Derrick Strait, Michael Thompson….all those were starters, including the best players, that weren’t Blake guys. In relation to your earlier 8-8 record in bowls for Bob Stoops….you know what Bill Snyders bowl record is? 8-10. I don’t put a ton into Bowl Records

          • Robert Martin

            I’m just saying that most of those kids were already there when Stoops took over. Bob took OU to a bowl game his first season and lost then won the national title in only his second season. So your telling me that in only his 2nd season that Bob had recruited he started all his recruits and was able to win a title in just his second season when most of those kids were at OU already? Kind of a quick turnaround for a team that had not done well in quite a few years under 3 different coaches in 14 years. I’m not arguing the fact he recruited his own players but most of those players were there already. Bill Snyder is at KSU not OU…. not the same
