STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -Having put about $250 million into a renovation of Oklahoma State's football stadium, it didn't take long before T. Boone Pickens tested out what he had bought.
Pickens sat down to pump some iron in the new 20,000-square-foot weight room, then asked strength coach Rob Glass to add some more weight during his first tour of the stadium Monday.
Through a series of donations, Pickens provided the bulk of the funding for the $286 million stadium overhaul. An entirely new west end zone facility opens this year with the weight room, an expansive locker room, a training area with four hydrotherapy pools and a theater-style meeting room.
Pickens says his goal now is for the Cowboys to win, not just be competitive.
