Oklahoma State Basketball Head Coach Travis Ford talks with the Tulsa World about the upcoming season.
Travis Ford recognizes that expectations are low, considering this year's squad looks to have a decent amount of talent on the court. Although, I'm not sure the low expectations has much to do with the talent in Stillwater.
"These players expect to win and expect to play on a high level," he said. "Confidence builds success, and success brings more success. Our players have been around and have been in the locker room and bowl games and what not. Some of the guys haven't played at this level, but they were around teams that expected to win. I don't think there's any question that that helps."
USA Today: Oklahoma State hopes to reload
When Gundy took over in 2005, little was expected of the Cowboys, especially during rebuilding years. Now, the Cowboys are still considered dangerous by many experts, despite returning just six starters on offense and four on defense from a team that went 10-3 and lost in the Cotton Bowl.

2011: This was one of the few years that the committee could have just ordered some pizzas, put their feet up, and mailed in their top four. LSU, which was the only undefeated team left in the country after beating Georgia convincingly to win the SEC title, would have been an easy No. 1. With wins over eight ranked opponents, including Alabama, there should be no doubting the Tigers' strength of schedule. The computer and the eye test also agreed on Alabama, as its lone loss was in overtime to LSU, and Oklahoma State, which won the Big 12 championship by drubbing a ranked Oklahoma team. USC's postseason ban would have made the decision even easier, along with the head-to-head result that Stanford won -- at USC -- albeit in three overtimes. Boise State was the only other one-loss team the committee might consider, but the Broncos lost at home to an unranked TCU team.
