Depleted receiving corps limiting Joseph Randle in passing game
Before the season, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy projected that running back Joseph Randle would be the Cowboys’ leading receiver, because of his ability to get the ball from several spots on the field.
Randle had five catches for 37 yards against TCU, his best receiving performance since he caught eight balls for 70 yards against Arizona in Week 2.
Gundy said Randle should, really, be catching even more passes. But because of the Cowboys’ banged-up receiving corps, Randle becomes less involved as a check-down option.
“There are some plays we’re calling now that only two people are involved in,” Gundy said. “It’s not ever been that way before. It’s always been five people that are involved in our plays, but we don’t have that luxury right now.
“If we were back to our base system, (Randle) would get the ball more because he becomes more of a viable check down guy. But right now it doesn’t work with what we’re doing.”
