In a crisis situation, who would fill the QB situation if Lunt, Walsh, and Chelf can't play? Chilcoat? Moore? Or Randle?

Great question. Chilcoat would seem to be next in line. And they've gotten him some practice reps the last couple weeks. If that didn't work, though, it would be interesting to see what they might do. It would definitely be a crisis situation. Moore and Randle, might be fun. What about Gilbert -- he was a high school QB.

Do you think OSU is a Joseph Randle injury away from not qualifying for a bowl game?

A Randle injury would be a tough blow to stomach in a year that has produced too many gut punches through injuries. But I don't know if I'd write off bowl chances. This coaching staff has done a remarkable job of piecing things together to keep the offense moving. Smith is returning to speed. Dez Roland showed some speed on that kickoff return for a TD. I think the Cowboys find some wins without Randle.
