PFB Oklahoma State value pick for Big 12 Championship next season: This is an interesting read from CBS. While it's a little rose-colored glasses for my taste. But it does make some excellent points."This is sort of funny because I sold my Cowboys stock last offseason. Even though Spencer Sanders, Chuba Hubbard and Tylan Wallace were all back and Pokes hype was through the roof, I'd seen that movie too many times to go all in," Kercheval wrote. "But I'm reversing course in 2021. I don't think Oklahoma State takes the huge step back some are predicting. First of all, Sanders is back, and while I wouldn't say he's the Big 12's best quarterback, he is probably the most elusive and exciting. I'm not concerned about replacing Hubbard, either. The Cowboys are loaded at running back with LD Brown, Dezmon Jackson and Jaylen Warren. And while losing Wallace hurts, history says Mike Gundy almost always has a 1,000-yard receiver in the chamber. Plus, a really salty defense from a year ago should be good again."
