More from Mike Gundy, Todd Monken on Oklahoma State’s quarterback decision
For Monday’s paper, I wrote about the continuing quarterback conundrum at Oklahoma State. It’s certainly not a bad conundrum — Wes Lunt, J.W. Walsh and Clint Chelf have played well and won a Big 12 game in their limited time this season. But it’s a conundrum nonetheless, because, now that all are medically available again, who do the coaches start this week against Texas Tech? And beyond?
OSU coach Mike Gundy and Todd Monken both spoke at length about this Monday. Plenty of their quotes made it into the newspaper, but here are some leftovers.
Coach Mike Gundy
On the difficult decision:
“We’re going to play the guy that we feel like gives us the best chance to win the game Saturday, the best chance to move the team and have success. I don’t think there’s any perfect answer or any right answer. We have three individuals who have been in our program who are getting close to being in a position to play.”
“There’ll be at least one guy, and maybe two guys, based on where we’re at from a health standpoint, that won’t be happy with the decision that’s made. (That’s) the competitive nature. As coaches, we have to make tough decisions, and that’s what we’ll do on Thursday.”
On Walsh’s rapid recovery from injury:
“Toughness is not an issue with him. You have to be a little careful, because just because he’ll go out there and play doesn’t mean he’s ready to play. We’re in a little of a Catch-22 there with him on that situation. Because we listen to him and he tells us how much pain he has, and he may not even tell you he has as many pain at all. But when you watch him, he’s moving around OK, not great.”
