Bill Haisten of the Tulsa World wrote a great article about the recent success Mike Gundy and the Cowboys have had against Texas in recent years. Before 2010, the Cowboys were a mind-boggling 2-22 all time against the Longhorns. Since then, the Cowboys are 6-2 and looking for their 5th consecutive victory in Austin.
That 2010 season saw both programs head in different directions. This decade, the Cowboys are 64-23, and have become a consistent national power. Texas, a longtime powerhouse, has turned into an average program, just 49-45 since 2010.
Oklahoma State opens as a touchdown favorite in Austin this weekend.
Kasey Dunn and his Wide Receiving Corps:
Meet the man (and his methods) behind the great receiver corps at #OKState. https://t.co/zkLvnxQWtc— Jenni Carlson (@JenniCarlson_OK) October 17, 2017
This article by Jenni Carlson of The Oklahoman details the success of the Cowboy receiving corps, and it all leads back to its coach, Kasey Dunn.
"The best thing he's done is look for a fit," Cowboy coach Mike Gundy said. "A lot of coaches will say, 'OK, we get 11 wideouts on our roster; we'll just go out and take the best 11 guys.'
Dunn has been at Oklahoma State since 2011, and has seen guys like Justin Blackmon, Josh Stewart, and now James Washington, Marcell Ateman, and many others in his film room. He mixes top recruits, and guys nobody wanted, and turn them into one of the most feared position groups in the country.
Turns out, the secret sauce for OSU receiving corps isn't all that mysterious, but there is definitely a recipe. Kasey Dunn wants a specific mix and goes after certain ingredients to make the whole thing sizzle.
No floppy white hat for this master chef. He wears a faded ball cap.
