STILLWATER, OK – SEPTEMBER 5: The Oklahoma State Cowboys sing their school’s Alma Mater with fans after their 24-10 victory over the Georgia Bulldogs at Boone Pickens Stadium on September 5, 2009 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Mike Gundy has spent 14 years coaching Oklahoma State football, his alma mater, and has turned the Cowboys into one of the sport’s most consistent teams.Since 2010, OSU has only finished with fewer than 10 wins twice. The team is currently riding three straight years with 10-3 records.Unless the program wins out, that streak will come to an end. Gundy’s club is 4-3 on the year, so we’re looking at what has become a rare down season for the Pokes.If things continue to go downhill for Oklahoma State football, would the program move on from Mike Gundy?It seems extremely unlikely. However, Coaches Hot Seat, which has a running ranking of the coaches in the most trouble, seems to think it is a possibility.In a new update, Gundy is ranked 10th, behind obvious hot seat names like David Beaty, Chris Ash, and Larry Fedora, and ahead of Bobby Petrino.Our guess…Texas beats OSU Baylor beats OSU Oklahoma beats OSU West Virginia beats OSU TCU beats OSU….and the Cowboys finish at 4 – 8 on the year and Mike Gundy is sitting around the Christmas Tree without a job but with $16 million dollars in the bank from his buyout!The writer doesn’t seem to be a big Gundy fan, but there is a chance that the team finishes outside of bowl eligibility.The Pokes are three-point underdogs at home against Texas this weekend. They may be favored at Baylor next week, but that may be the last time, with highly ranked Oklahoma and West Virginia teams after the Bears, and TCU on the road.So yes, OSU missing a bowl is definitely on the table. Firing Gundy though? That would be a big step.The veteran coach received a big contract extension in the Summer of 2017. At the end of last season, the school bumped his salary up to $5 million per year, making him tied for 10th in coaches pay per USA Today. His buyout will be over $16 million as of December.Gundy’s had something of a tense relationship with mega-booster T. Boone Pickens over the years, and he has looked around at other jobs, including Florida and Tennessee last off-season, but after a meeting with the Vols, he tweeted “Cowboy for Life!”Cowboy For Life! #GoPokes #okstate— Mike Gundy (@CoachGundy) November 29, 2017Letting him go after one down season seems like it would be a massive mistake.[Coaches Hot Seat]
