Orange is that day that you moved into the dorms as a freshman w/ lines for the elevator.
It’s meeting those friends that would stick with you for life.
It’s wearing orange the Friday before the first game & every Friday after that.
It’s KURT BUDKE, MIRANDA SERNA, REMEMBER THE 10, Barry Sanders,
John Smith, Garth Brooks, Mike Gundy, Eddie Sutton…it’s you and me.
Orange is putting your arm around the shoulder of the stranger next to you to sing the Alma Mater.
It’s making the switch to saying “Power” instead of “Orange.”
It’s remembering Lewis Field & admiring Boone Pickens Stadium.
ORANGE IS THE DEAFENING ROAR AT GALLAGHER IBA.
It’s knowing that it’s left hand up to make an “S.”
Orange is when it’s good for a Cowboy First Down and Ten.
Orange is Pistols Firing – Touchdown Oklahoma State.
It’s “...O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A Oklahoma STATE” no matter where you are when the state song is played.
It’s the big smile on your face when you walk past the orange fountain.
It’s going back to the place you worked in college & remembering it as the best job you ever had even though it paid the least.
It’s a cabinet full of Joe’s cups.
Orange is knowing that it’s time to go home when you hear “New York, New York” or “Shoulda Been a Cowboy.”
Orange is the one you tried to let down easy & the one you’ll never forget.
Orange is wanting to get out of Stillwater for four years & spending the rest of your life wanting to go back.
Proud and Immortal,
Bright shines your name.
We herald your fame.
Ever you’ll find us,
Loyal and true.
To our Alma Mater
O – S – U!!!!
Prayers to the Cowgirls...RIP Coach Budke and Serna
