Here's what happened the last time Todd Monken debut as a play-caller:

The Oklahoma State Cowboys — with a first-year offensive coordinator named Todd Monken — finished 12-1, averaged 49.3 points and 550 yards per game, won their first and only Big 12 Championship and beat Andrew Luck and Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl.
