Poll Recap: OSU Fans Are Optimistic about the 2018–19 Season

Published

Oklahoma State’s 2017-18 season ended just over a week ago, but that’s not stopping us from looking ahead.

This year was definitely better than anyone — other than maybe Coach Boynton — could have expected. It’s left Cowboy fans with a good feeling about the program and it’s future. So much so, that fans are already expecting even better second year under Coach Boynton.

That’s a landslide to me. Of the 1,504 people who voted 1,128 believe that OSU will be better next year than they were this year.

The comments were a little less positive about next year, but overwhelmingly positive about the longterm under Boynton’s guidance.

“Losing Mitch, Jeff, and Kendall. We have no point guard and will be soft as soft in the front court. I am extremely positive for the long term but just not for next year.”Adam

“I believe he takes one step back But then has an incredible junior year”Shannon Edwards

“Worse. Not a reflection on the staff, the team just loses a ton of scoring and its ‘do everything’ MVP. Maybe there will be another Smith out there that grad transfers in.”Below_the_cheddar_curtain

“It depends on who coach brings in. This years group was a wonderful example of a team that was more than the sum of its parts, they had really good chemistry. If you get a few more guys that have talent and size than I think better. All about recruiting though”Matt Schmidtz

“We are back to the Big Dance in 2018-19! We will be better by couple of games next year!”OSUGary

I go back and forth on whether or not OSU is better or worse next season. It really depends on who Boynton brings in during the offseason. I believe he can land some solid grad transfers and we know he can develop players. Look at Smith from the beginning of the season to the end. Look at Mitchell Solomon’s jump from his sophomore season to his junior and senior years.

I think it’s just as likely OSU takes a big step forward next season, as it is they take a half-step back. A lot will happen between now and then. What I think we can all agree on, is that the basketball program looks to be in good hands for the foreseeable future.
