A letter to my Oklahoma State doubt


Dear "That part of my brain that is trying to convince me that Oklahoma State will be 3-9",

Please stop sending messages to the rest of my brain and clouding my judgment.  It has been a while since Oklahoma State has lost to a terrible team, and outside of the restructuring year of 2005, we have been a much more stable program of late. This is not the 90's. Bob Simmons is as distant of a memory as losses to Tulsa and La Tech. This is the new era of Oklahoma State football... we are reloaders, not rebuilders.

So "That part of my brain that is trying to convince me that Oklahoma State will be 3-9", when I am reading or writing a piece about the Washington State game, or the season in general, please stop interjecting with your negativity and planting seeds of doubt in my head.  I just want to believe we are a good program that is going to perform well and finish at least 8-4.  Stop ruining this for me.

Thanks,

Sam
