If you’re looking for some detailed, detached analysis of what Oklahoma State brings to the table this season, brother, the Intertubes have your back.
Start with these two posts at the excellent Missouri blog Rock M Nation:
What I get from those is (1) it’s a shame that Georgia’s not playing the Cowboy offense next year, when all of their studs are gone; (2) OSU had a much worse pass rushing defense than Georgia did last year; (3) there may be conditioning issues on the defensive side of the ball that Bill Young needs to shore up.
Burnt Orange Nation takes a look at the OSU defensive line in this post. For all the focus in Stillwater on upgrading the pass rush, there’s something else a defensive line has to be able to do well – stop the run. That bunch looks a little small, at least in comparison with what Georgia sees in the SEC in many games. It’ll be interesting to see how those guys hold up to four quarters of pounding by a big offensive line and a big back like Samuel.
