On Thursday August 22, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy announced that both quarterbacks will get significant playing time in the opener verse Mississippi State. This quarterback competition has been going on for two years.
The elder statesmen of the quarterback rotation, Clint Chelf had a great partial season in 2012. The only problem is that Sophomore J.W. Walsh also had a great run during the season. Both quarterbacks passed for over 1,500 yards and 13 touchdowns. Here’s the main reason why former Cowboy Wes Lunt wasn’t happy with his situation at Oklahoma State. He wasn’t the clear cut favorite to be a starter ever. Even with the transfer of Lunt to Illinois, Oklahoma State can’t decide who should be the full time starter.
Maybe it says a lot about the talented players taking snaps for the Oklahoma State Cowboys. It could just be a ploy for Mississippi State to game plan for both quarterbacks. Walsh is the better runner, and he maybe used in similar fashion to Blake Bell at Oklahoma in recent years.
According to CBSSports.com, “the staff feels comfortable with either quarterback under center.” It looks like this quarterback situation will go on throughout the year. Can it work to the tune of a Big 12 title?
