We all know Mike Gundy’s squad has been pretty immense in the decade (!) he’s been the head ball coach in Stillwater. I wanted to see just how it stacked up against other teams nationally in that timespan.

First, the 10 years from 2005-2014.

Total wins (2005-14)
1 Boise State 112
2 Ohio State 109
3 Alabama 106
4 Oregon 105
5 Louisiana State 102
6 Oklahoma 101
7 Southern California 99
8 Texas Christian 99
9 Wisconsin 97
10 Florida State 95
11 Virginia Tech 95
12 Florida 94
13 Texas 94
14 Georgia 93
15 Missouri 90
16 Brigham Young 89
17 Penn State 89
18 Clemson 87
19 Nebraska 87
20 West Virginia 87
21 Auburn 86
22 Cincinnati 86
23 Northern Illinois 85
24 Michigan State 83
25 Oklahoma State 83

Not bad. Better than South Carolina, Notre Dame, Michigan and Kansas State. How about more recently?

25 Southern California 44

The 11th-best power five school and 14th overall. The golden age of Oklahoma State football and we’re smack in the middle of it. As Gundy told ESPN earlier this year, that can be a difficult thing to maintain.

“There was a time I felt underappreciated,” Gundy said. “When you start to feel sorry for yourself, you think back and think, ‘Really? I’ve done this, I’ve done that, we’ve done this.’ Then you realize it doesn’t matter anyway. The reason that happens is because of what we build up. There’s going to be a time when people are pressing and demand a lot from us.

“We have created this monster. Now we have to feed it.”
