The Pickens Plan for Oklahoma State football

Posted by ZA on October 21, 2008

Billionaire T. Boone Pickens is finally getting a proper return on his investment.
No, not his oil investments – he’s already made billions of those.
And not his green energy wind farm investments – he’s still waiting for those to mature.

He’s getting ROI from the $200,000,000.00 he pledged to his alma mater, Oklahoma State University.  The $200 million was provided a few years ago to pull the Cowboys athletic programs from middle of the pack to the top shelf.  This season the money is finally working for the OSU football team, who knocked off Missouri and have climbed to 7th in the latest AP poll.

T. Boone said, “Now I’m getting my money’s worth.”

Next step for T. Boone’s Cowboys is their biggest game of the year so far against the #1 ranked Texas Longhorns in Austin.  A few weeks after that the Cowboys will face their hated in-state rival, the Oklahoma Sooners, in the Bedlam Series.  Both of those games will be extremely difficult for OSU to win, but if they do then Pickens will really be getting ROI.

Pickens said, “The two biggest games for me are the OU game and the Texas game.  I’d like to beat both of ’em.  That’d be a real thrill for me.”

Are you listening Coach Mike Gundy and Athletic Director Mike Holder?  T. Boone wants a couple of victorious.  Heck, if you do it – it might earn your programs a few million extra.
