Talking points: Good to be offensive
Spring football is in full swing in Stillwater. Dana Holgorsen has begun installing his offense and it seems like the players are buying into the new system. Here are three names on the offensive side of the football who OSU fans should be excited about heading into 2010.
Running back Kendall Hunter: Simply put, Kendall Hunter is special. He can do things with the football that other people cannot do, it’s that simple. In Dana Holgorsen’s offense, there will be a SportsCenter moment from Hunter in every game. Expect the senior to have a huge year, he’ll get the ball in space and have one-on-one opportunities galore. And he will win the majority of those battles.
Receiver Justin Blackmon: I wouldn’t be surprised if Blackmon emerges as OSU’s top receiver in 2010. He’s a potential playmaker and he showed signs of it in 2009. He has the talent and physical ability, now the redshirt sophomore just needs to show the type of consistency that would force the Cowboys coaching staff to make getting him the football a priority every Saturday.
Quarterback Brandon Weeden: The light seems to have turned on for Weeden. All signs point to him taking the reins and carrying himself as the No. 1 quarterback the Cowboys are searching for with Zac Robinson pursuing his NFL dreams. This offense is a better fit for Weeden, who many believed had the best arm on the squad in 2009, and, at 26 years old, he has the maturity and poise to handle the starting spot and the attention and pressure that comes with it.
