While Oklahoma State quarterback J.W. Walsh sputtered against West Virginia — he finished 20-of-47 and threw two bad interceptions — the social media world began to clamor for the return of opening day starter Clint Chelf.
Did Gundy ever consider making that switch? Not really, he said.
“We were never really in a situation where we had to be in an all-pass situation,” Gundy said, “so it never really crossed our mind because, right up until the end, we had opportunities.
“We just didn't execute very well. And (Walsh) didn't throw the ball as well as he needs to.”
Walsh, of course, replaced Chelf after he was ineffective in two series against Mississippi State in Week 1.
NO WORD FROM BIG 12 FOLLOWING GILBERT EJECTION
Starting cornerback Justin Gilbert was ejected late against West Virginia for a flagrant personal foul after throwing punches during a confrontation with a Mountaineer player.
According to the NCAA rule book, Big 12 Conference officials will review the play to determine if any additional sanctions are in order regarding Gilbert for OSU's next game against Kansas State. And as of Sunday evening, Gundy said he had not had any contact with the conference.
“Usually, I hear something before noon (the next day) on those instances,” Gundy said. “I really haven't been in this situation in years. Could they call me (Monday)? I guess they could.”
JOSH STEWART AND JHAJUAN SEALES IN SUNDAY MEETING, TO BE FURTHER EVALUATED TUESDAY
The Cowboys lost two of their biggest offensive weapons late in their loss to West Virginia Saturday, as receivers Josh Stewart and Jhajuan Seales were both knocked out of the contest in the fourth quarter with apparent head injuries.
Gundy said both players were at OSU's team meeting Sunday evening, but that they would be evaluated further on Tuesday.
“Anytime that you have a player that gets dinged in the head, they evaluate them more so Tuesday morning,” Gundy said, “and then let us know kind of where we are at for the week. But both of them were here (Sunday) and both of them were in our meeting.”
Stewart, an All-Big 12 selection in 2012, leads the Cowboys in every major receiving category with 19 catches for 312 yards and two touchdowns. Seales has 15 receptions for 163 yards and one score.
