The Benefit of the Doubt

What Mike Gundy has accomplished with a consistent winning record is the benefit of the doubt that he’ll win. And you can bet on it.

Rudolph and Washington were iconic Cowboys, but Gundy’s built a machine that’s churned out double-digit win seasons with less. Vegas has this win total around eight, and I do think OSU is good enough to end up in the Big 12 championship game at the end of the year. [CBS Sports]

When the loss of your school’s all-time winningest quarterback is seen as a part of the machine and not an outlier to come down from, you know you’ve built a winning program.

Plus – “good enough to end up in the Big 12 championship game” after losing Rudolph and Washington? That’s a vote of confidence.

Question Behind the Question

While Taylor Cornelius will be encouraged to run away with the quarterback job, likely given the comfort knowing it’s his job to lose, a bigger question lurks in the shadows of less-than-ideal scenarios.

The bottom line: Only Mike Gundy knows the plan for if Cornelius struggles. Does he turn to true freshman Spencer Sanders first, or does graduate transfer Dru Brown get a shot as Sanders tries to redshirt? [TulsaWorld]

It’ll be hard to quantify anything after the 27′ Yankees of Missouri State and South Alabama – but what happens if he struggles against Boise State? Do you ride him or Hulk Hogan the redshirt off of Spencer Sanders? Gundy only knows but I doubt we see another Clint Chelf-vs. Mississippi State-pulling.

OSU and NCAA Notes

This dream college football roadtrip using 2018 season looks amazing….These Texas A&M allegations don’t look good, even considering the motivation for the transferring player sharing them….Is 2018 the year of the running quarterback in the Big 12?….Ohio State board meets this morning, a few possible outcomes on Urban Meyer….Former CFP committee member advocates for a move to a six-team playoff

Desmond Mason is the best.

Woof. Tech’s bigger running back appears to be in trouble.

My goodness. Give me a net the size of Gallagher-Iba and I’m still way out.

Nice to see the former Cowboy walk-on finding a landing spot.
