Seven turnovers is a lot, no matter who you play. However, when you play the smaller schools, a lot of people are going to question if your team is just good, or is the other team really that bad? That and more will be discussed thoroughly in this weeks mailbag.
@CowboysRFF it's 2011. We have the chance to win against ISU & go to the natty. BUT we lose Gundy as a coach forever. Would you take it?— OkState Gents (@GentsOkstate) September 21, 2015
When you say lose does that mean he retires? Sure. A team who wins a national title is going to bring some big name guy in the next year who can also do it. Plus, who wouldn't want to win a national title? I'd cut off my right arm for that.
@CowboysRFF Was seven takeaways a fluke, or do we go back to the 2011 year where we get 2 or 3 a game?— Bizzy (@Tha_BizNasty61) September 21, 2015
This question is going to mess with a few. Fluke isn't the right word, though you can use it. UTSA isn't a great team, but they usually aren't the type to turn it over that much, hell, no one is. Is OSU going to do that again? No, very unlikely. It just doesn't happen very often. I'd love for Oklahoma State to go back to two or three turnovers a game, if they turn each of those into touchdowns, that's a 14-21 point swing. I think with the quarterbacks and offenses in this league, it's definitely doable.
@CowboysRFF How do you think Carson fairs against B12 defenses? Is he a 1,000 yard rusher?— Kade Gottschalk (@Kade_G34) September 21, 2015
Absolutely. There's a hole group of teams who aren't that great at the whole tackling thing.
- Texas Tech
- Sometimes Baylor
- Oh and TCU if they keep losing players
- Kansas State is eighth against the run.
@CowboysRFF Does the young Texas defense allow more or less points than a young UTSA defense?— Adam Mikles (@miklesad619) September 22, 2015
@CowboysRFF (from my wife) how many PAT's and field goals will Grogan miss this season?— Kyle Cox (@kec_okc) September 22, 2015
