Reliving OSU's 2004 Final Four season with Daniel & Natalie Bobik | The Jenni Carlson Show

The Jenni Carlson Show

Jan 30 2024 • 57 mins

Twenty years ago, Oklahoma State men’s basketball became a phenomenon. Cowboy games were happenings that brought fans in droves to Gallagher-Iba Arena. Daniel Bobik was part of the show on the court while his wife, Natalie, became part of what was happening in the stands. Remember Cool Chicks Wear Orange? Daniel and Natalie recall that season fondly but say their appreciation was greater because of the season that came before the magical 2003-04 season. The Bobiks talked about all that and much more on The Jenni Carlson Show.
