Mr. Pickens is a big part of our success and we’re all thankful for the lasting impact he’s had on Oklahoma State. It would have been difficult for us to climb as high as we have without him. He’ll be missed, but his legacy here will live on for a long time to come. pic.twitter.com/1jYVwBcHo0— Mike Gundy (@CoachGundy) September 11, 2019

T Boone Pickens was an archetype & throwback, a Southwestern oil baron of the special Oklahoma-Texas breed. Crusty, blunt and tough as Rhino hide. Also an innovator in wind energy and a philanthropist, with a big place in his heart and deep pockets for OSU. May he Rest in Peace.— Dan Rather (@DanRather) September 11, 2019
My good friend Boone Pickens had died at 91. As I said on his birthday “Boone Pickens is one of the smartest businessmen I have ever known. He has the courage of a ‘Riverboat Gambler’ and the wisdom of King Solomon.” #RIPBoone! https://t.co/dacNPVSdaH— Kent R. Hance (@KentRHance) September 11, 2019
In 2005, I sat next to Boone Pickens at an OSU wrestling match.— Eric Bailey (@EricBaileyTW) September 11, 2019
He introduced himself & he was so down-to-earth. We talked about Holdenville, where my grandma lived until recently passing away at 97.
It was the only time I spoke with him. But he left an impression.
Thank you for everything, Mr. Pickens. Rest In Peace 🙏🏻 https://t.co/YJgudl1mv4— Brad Lundblade (@BradLundblade) September 11, 2019
