6. No. 5: Cowboys Not Taking It Too Easy
It begins to get bad here, and let’s not forget that one reason Mike Gudy is apparently at odds with his athletic director, to the point the Cowboys coach has flirted with other jobs, is because his boss is scheduling too hard. The highlight this season is the opener against Mississippi State in Houston, but the Bulldogs are coming off a 1-5 skid to end the 2012 season 8-5, that after a 7-6 record in 2011. After that, Oklahoma State plays a road game against Texas-San Antonio in the Alamo Dome. Larry Coker’s Roadrunners won eight games last season. Ray Woodard’s Lamar team won just four, was shut out twice and lost 54-2 at Hawaii.
