OSU coach Mike Gundy spilled a fascinating piece of information about a potential statue of OSU icon Barry Sanders during the Big 12 Media Days on Tuesday. 

“It’s in the works right now. I don’t think it’ll be much longer,” Gundy informed. “We’ll have a statue of Barry up. I can’t give you a date on that. I don’t play much of a role on that, other than I thought we needed it.

“We’re going to do a better job of recognizing former players. Our stadium is perfect for a ring of honor or something like that. We have a lot of things like that moving in the right direction as we speak.”
