Does Wes Lunt start all 12 games?

Good question. I might have answered this differently in the past week or so, I don't know, but I'll say yes. I think OSU will give Westin every chance to succeed, and with that offensive culture, there are lots of reasons to think he will. So let's say yes.

What are the Cowboys' toughest 3 games?

Toughest? Well, at OU, at KSU, West Virginia or Texas at home, I'd say. But three most important are probably WVU, Texas and at Arizona. Look at it this way. OSU has only five road games -- Arizona, KU, KSU, OU, Baylor. Cowboys should be favored in three of them. Win those three, then win their home games as heavy favorites (ULL, Savannah State, Iowa State, Tech), and that's seven. So three games are left -- TCU, WVU and Texas. Win two of those three, and that's 9-3. A heck of a year.

Why do you think so many people still don't trust Landry Jones? The man has some amazing numbers at OU and if he has a solid year he could almost break the record for most career passing yards in NCAA history.

Well, Landry's numbers and records don't particular impress me -- they are the result of playing four years and playing in this kind of offense. But I don't know why people don't trust Jones. I still think he's a very good quarterback. Exceptionally good. Good enough to lead the Sooners all the way. But he's got to have help.
