Gundy apprehensive on bringing title game to Big 12

With the momentum it's stockpiled this spring, Oklahoma State could very well be in contention to make the College Football Playoff in 2015 and become the first Big 12 team to do so. That is, assuming the Cowboys wouldn't be spurned a shot at a national title like TCU and Baylor in 2014, snubs that most felt were heavily influenced by the Big 12's lack of championship game. Despite...

Cowboys 7-Round Mock Draft Headlined by Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest

We are about a week away from welcoming our newest draft class and the Cowboys fan base is anxiously awaiting what we do with the #27 pick? Will we trade up, will we stay put, or will we trade down? So many scenarios to ponder. In my latest mock draft, I contemplated moving up for Todd Gurley, but he went #17 to the Chargers, so I decided to let the players fall to me. Listening...

Gundy: J.W. Walsh didn't transfer 'because he trusts us'

While Mason Rudolph's career was taking off at Oklahoma State in the latter stages of the 2014 season, J.W. Walsh's was taking the opposite trajectory, cascading turf-ward. As Walsh sat on the sideline with a season-ending ankle injury, Rudolph was granted the keys to OSU's offense. The hype surrounding Rudolph was unavoidable, and Walsh had to make a decision to remain in Stillwater...

Derby to replace Castleman, Hautau will spill over into summer

The Cowboys will head into the summer still trying to sort out which players will replace departed seniors James Castleman and Ofa Hautau on the defensive line.

OSU assistant makes Big 12 underrated coaches list

Joe Bob Clements deserves his due credit—and not just because he has an awesome name.

ESPN tends to agree, listing...
