first_imgT3TCU171017 While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. That’s surprising, right? Here are the offensive starters: T48Kansas St14816 T48Baylor14707 T3Texas177110 T86Iowa St12616 Zach CrabtreeJustice HillMason RudolphJames WashingtonBrad LundbladeJalen McCleskeyMarcus KeyesThis is mildly misleading because Marcell Ateman is taking over for Jhajuan Seales (which is an upgrade) and transfer Aaron Cochran will fill in for Victor Salako. Also, RG Larry Williams did not start in the final game of the season, but he is more or less a starter.On defense:Tre FlowersRamon RichardsChad WhitenerCole WalterscheidJarrell OwensI’m guessing Kenneth Edison-McGruder is the odd man out here even though he did start the last two games. Again, Clemson transfer Adrian Baker (as many wins over OU as Mike Gundy) is not exactly a newbie, and other players with good experience (Justin Phillips, Calvin Bundage, Darrion Daniels and Trey Carter) will likely start at times and play a lot.An example: “[Calvin has] grown a lot,” said Whitener who is one of the five returning starters on defense about sophomore Calvin Bundage. “He’s matured a lot and is playing very fast right now. Calvin is a guy that makes a lot of plays and he’s been doing that this spring so far.”So this isn’t exactly cause for concern, but it is interesting. One unintended benefit of playing in the Big 12 is that you get a lot of guys who get a lot of reps. So many plays are run around these parts that more young players get a chance to go game speed. That makes for box scores traditional CFB analysts hate but also for a future that doesn’t necessarily rely on old horses.

Well, according to Phil Steele, it actually does not. Steele — who has to be college football’s busiest man between January and July — recently ranked teams by how many starters they have returning.Oklahoma State tied for seventh in the Big 12 and tied for 86th nationally.
