At this point anybody making projections on the 2018 Cowboy Football team is flying blind but this seems to be a pretty rational take on the determining factors.
The Cowboys are never just terrible but there’s a lot that isn’t known about this team. My best guess says that their returning talent at OL, “cowboy-backer,” and RB allow them to run the ball fairly well and that either Taylor Cornelius or Dru Brown gives them solid play distributing the ball to a legitimately talented group of wideouts.
I’m a fan of new DC Jim Knowles but I doubt he gets the secondary in good working order in year one. If they surpass my expectations this coming year (finishing in the middle of the pack) it’ll probably be because one of those QBs is an immediate hit. [ConcerningSports]
Even-year goals are beating Texas and getting your ducks in a row for the odd year when the schedule turns favorable but getting B+ quarterback play and defensive improvement could tilt the scales towards an eight-win season
There’s No Place Like Home
Josh Holliday’s winding road out of Stillwater led him many places before he found his way back.
“That,” he says, “was maybe the most painful thing I’ve ever felt.”
Fifteen years later, as his Cowboys prepare for their sixth straight postseason appearance and a matchup against South Florida in the DeLand Regional, Josh Holliday realizes rejection from a place he considered home was exactly what he needed. [NewsOK]
From an unpaid position at North Carolina State to title-winning teams at Vanderbilt, getting out on his own and proving himself highlighted the resilience and talent that OSU currently enjoys in its head man.
