STILLWATER, Oklahoma -- From Heisman running back to business entrepreneur, OSU great Barry Sanders opened a new Hyundai dealership in Stillwater Monday night.

He stunned fans 10 years ago when he left the NFL to pursue new opportunities

"It was the right time for me. Had a chance to play for 10 great years, and I knew it was time to leave. I have no regrets," said Sanders, the former OSU star.

The opening was a big Cowboy affair, including an appearance from OSU Coach Mike Gundy.
