"Some of the players and children of the coaches on the team suggested I couldn't ride one of them, that they are too hard," said Gundy.

Gundy survived the test run, and even analyzed his performance.

"I thought I was pretty good to be honest with you. A couple times I got a little top-heavy but because there were so many people around I'm glad that I didn't fall," said Gundy.

His players were a little shocked.

"I was a little impressed how good he was on it, I was kind of suprirsed. He probably made sure he was good at it before he got up there and did it in front of people," said senior wide receiver David Glidden.

Others were a little jealous.

"I can't do it, but he can," said senior cornerback Kevin Peterson.

The Cowboys practiced inside the Superdome for the first time on Wednesday as focus starts to shift towards gameday on January 1st.
