Great Piece from Gina Mizell on the Cowboys linebacker corps. Oklahoma State fans can trust returning starters Lewis, Lavey and Elkins to get the job done, but the angle here is the role of the backups. The play of the younger linebackers will be part of what can take this defense from good to great. The overall versatility presented by the linebackers adds just another threat to the unit, which will likely have to step up for the Cowboys to contend on the national stage.
This free article from GoPokes includes a Q&A with starting center Evan Epstein. It's awesome to see this fifth-year senior finally get a shot at starting. Everyone is excited for the opener, but this is something special for Epstein. These are the kind of players that make a program.
There’s nothing new in this season preview article, but for once Oklahoma State gets a mostly positive outlook from a national media outlet—even if it is CBS.
