Similar to what they went through in 2012, the Oklahoma State Cowboys are now in the process of essentially beginning a new era with turnover everywhere. And it’s causing analysts to drastically overlook them.

Mike Gundy has definitely taken this program to the next level, building off of what Les Miles started, and despite the suspicions surrounding the program currently, it’s in pretty good shape. This year is appearing to be nothing but a rebuilding year to many of the experts, but that does not make a lot of sense when you look at the returning contributors and Gundy’s system.

Does Gundy’s system outweigh the loss of talent?

It sure as heck doesn’t outweigh his dance talent, which you can see here.

But Gundy’s unconventional style has brought him great success, even to the point of going to the internet to find his current offensive coordinator, whom he hired from Shippensburg.

As his offense alternated quarterbacks last year due to lack of performance, the team still made its way to a 10-3 record and was the only team to beat Baylor.

So with so much talent gone on both sides of the ball, will the coaching make up for it again? And if so, how much? Continue to Next Slide for Offense
