Mike Gundy has had a great offseason, flirting briefly, again, with Tennessee and then becoming the Big 12’s third $5 million coach. He got to hire a new defensive coordinator in Duke’s Jim Knowles and was allowed to add a 10th coach and a bunch of new analysts.
All this after a massively disappointing 9-3 regular season and hum-drum trip to the Camping World Bowl. As last year’s losses (all at home) piled up, Cowboy Nation often asked, “If not now, when?”
Will a revamped roster on offense and an entirely new direction on defense derail Oklahoma State’s chase for a championship? One thing is certain, these Cowboys have a lot of work ahead of them this offseason.
