It Hasn’t Been Perfect, but There Are Only 17 Teams in FBS at 4-0

“Now we have to live with the flip side of it.”



Have the first four Oklahoma State games gone according to how a lot of us hoped they’d go?

Nope.[1. All four of my picks are 4-0, by the way.]

But hey, there are only 17 teams in FBS that are 4-0, and OSU is one of them (12 more teams are 3-0). They might not have played any legendary games that we’ll tell our grandchildren about, but they’ve been perfect so far (and won six straight overall).

“To go down there and win and play in those conditions and that environment is always a plus,” Gundy said about the Texas game on Monday. “I think you’re going to find that in the league this year. There’s a lot of parity, and there are a lot of teams that can play well. Each week will be a battle.”

This is true, and especially so on the road. Oklahoma State is 51-16 at home in the Gundy era and just 30-24 on the road.

“My phone works just like everybody else’s,” Gundy said on Monday about Texas. “You get 30-40 messages telling you everything you did wrong. You get 3-4 telling you what you did right.”

Maybe the Texas game will be like the A&M one in 2011 that propelled OSU to a season for the ages (not if they don’t figure out how to run the football … but possibly).

“I tell them, what we’ve done is elevate Oklahoma State football to the point to where it’s (a win at Texas) isn’t enough. They want you to dominate. I tell them, you guys have done a great job. Now you have to live with the flip side of it.”
