This is the real question for the Cowboys – can the defense stay elite under Derek Mason?

Robert Allen had a good update on how Cowboys in the pros are doing – solid updates on the linebackers, Kolby Harvell-Peel already injured/cut 🙁

• Multiple things have been out on the interwebs about how Cowboy Football is winning but not quite receiving that recognition blue bloods get (namely from not making a CFP or BCS title game).

This is what Mike Gundy and Chad Weiberg honed in on as needed for the Pokes:

Both Gundy and Weiberg think Oklahoma State has the donor base and motivation to make similar gains, even though Pickens died in 2019. They also both feel Oklahoma State needs a branding boost.

Gundy called Oklahoma State’s story “a little bit of a mystery” to many, even those connected to the program. He said because Oklahoma State isn’t a traditional blue blood, it doesn’t get the benefits those programs enjoy, like being reflexively ranked in preseason Top 25 polls.
