The 2014 college football season is about to kick off and there are plenty of teams that have a chance of winning it all this season.

If you are going to bet on this team, you have to know one key stat: the Cowboys lose 32 of their 70 lettermen off the 2013 team. That is a big drop off and will be hard to overcome. How bad is this number?

That’s right, it is so bad, the Cowboys rank dead last out of college football which includes 128 teams. The Cowboys replace as many starters — nine on offense, eight on defense — as any major program in the country. In short, we’re about to find out how well Oklahoma State has been recruiting. Oklahoma State will not enter the season as the preeminent league favorite, but even on the Big 12’s next tier, the Cowboys become a fringe playoff candidate. It helps that the Big 12 has yet to institute a title game, but what will be tough to overcome is the fact that the Cowboys will battle the Florida State Seminoles on their schedule this season.

The Cowboys also took a hit on offense, which had been the strength of this football program for many years. Due to a variety of factors, not the least of which was a continually unsettled situation at quarterback, the Cowboys dropped to 45th in yards per play in 2013 (5.91, compared to more than 7 in the previous two years). Clint Chelf stepped in and operated, more or less, as a caretaker of the offense, while an improved defense often kept OSU in games. With Chelf gone, J.W. Walsh again becomes the top option. They will have to figure out how to score and get young players involved early or will be looking towards a long season.

Oklahoma State closes with Texas, at Baylor and at Oklahoma and that will be too much to overcome. Betting on the Cowboys to win the title will return a big profit, but it comes with plenty of risk.
