100% Orange Juice: OSU vs. FSU game preview, Tyreek Hill's Versatility

Good Morning and Welcome back to 100% OJ, your morning stop for Oklahoma State athletics

Whether you are rushing out the door or sitting down with your phone or computer, everyone needs a good glass of orange juice in the morning. So sit down, relax and enjoy!

Four days until OSU Cowboys fans figure out what this team is all about.

Four more days until ultimate joy or crushing disappointment.

The college football season officially starts this Thursday, but for those in the fine town of Stillwater, the real season starts Saturday. No one really expects the Cowboys to win, but we all hope they do.

For more on the game and to understand it going into Saturday, Bob Ferrante of bleacherreport.com has the Oklahoma State versus Florida State game preview.

Protect Walsh

Walsh was only sacked nine times but that was with a veteran line. While Cowboys coach Mike Gundy hasn’t released a depth chart for the FSU game, Ourlads.com projected three sophomores would start on the offensive line. With very little experience in front of him, Walsh will need to get rid of the ball quicker. But he must also be willing to take a sack instead of forcing into a bad situation and tossing interceptions.

Especially with a new offensive line coach. Who knows how ready Bob Connelly will have these boys ready by Saturday.

Tyreek Hill is one of the most mysterious and intriguing players for the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Hill, coming into OSU, was the best JUCO running back in the nation and a 5-star recruit at one time. He was recruited by the likes of Oregon, Alabama and OU. By the grace of God, he ended up on the doorstep of Mike Gundy. Now, he could be the difference maker in what is supposed to be a rebuilding season.

For more on what Tyreek Hill’s speed and versatility means to Oklahoma State, John Helsley of the Oklahoman has the complete story.

“Tyreek is not just track fast, he’s football fast,” said Cowboys cornerback Kevin Peterson, who has dealt with Hill in practice. “And he has good jukes, a low center of gravity.

“The more the ball is in his hands, the better I feel as a defense. Because we’re not going to be on the field.”

Anything under 20 touches or more a game would be ridiculous for Tyreek Hill. Hill, even though he doesn’t play defense, could mean the difference in close games with a defense that is inexperienced and young.

In other non-OSU news…
