2014 Season Win Total Picks NCAA Football: 'Under'
It is tough to count out a Mike Gundy team. Especially since he has gone 41-11 over the past four seasons. But this looks like a rebuilding season in Stillwater. The Cowboys have just four returning starters on both sides of the ball and they have lost a ton of NFL talent over the past two years.
Oklahoma State is going to score. Count on that. J.W. Walsh has some experience under center and will be the triggerman for the Cowboys. There is a dearth of experienced skill people, but Walsh will be working with three senior starters along the line. The defense is a complete remodel though. But considering that Baylor and Texas Tech are underdoing similar problems with their stop units Oklahoma State isn't that far behind the curve.
Oklahoma State doesn't play a true road game until Oct. 11 and that is at Kansas so it doesn't really count. And the Cowboys don't play their three toughest opponents, Texas, Baylor and Oklahoma, until the end of the season when they hopefully have a firm identity on both sides of the ball. The Cowboys get bye weeks to prep for the Texas and Oklahoma games.
The Cowboys have enough to put a scare into defending national champ Florida State in the season opener. But I can't see them winning that game. I also don't know that they'll take down UT or OU. I can't back a team that has fewer returning starters on both sides of the ball than Oklahoma has on defense alone. I will stick with the rebuilding vibe. Play 'under'.
