Quarterback controversy for Oklahoma State?

In whose mind? Fans? Not yet. And the conditions aren't really ripe for one. Beat Texas and Walsh's case would have been strengthened. But what's the longest Lunt could be out? Open week, at Kansas, Iowa State at home. Let's just say Lunt stays out for that stretch and Walsh leads the Cowboys to victory in all three. I don't see how that leaves him with a strong case for replacing Lunt. Any chance of making Gundy's choice a tough one diminished greatly Saturday.

Do you see any Sooners leaving early for the 2013 NFL draft?

I guess there could be a scenario in which Damien Williams' productions increases dramatically and he becomes a 1,500-yard rusher, pushing him into the second or third round. It's possible he could go under those circumstances. Who knows. Running backs from Florida Atlantic are becoming lead backs in the NFL right now. Why couldn't Williams and would he even need more production at OU?

Is James Harden the next Joe Johnson? A pretty good player with a (soon to be) horrid contract.

Interesting analogy, but I don't think it fits. Joe Johnson is a scorer who really doesn't create much for anyone else. Harden's skills at elevating the play of those around him is his most valuable trait. He certainly didn't display it in the NBA Finals, but the Thunder would not have made the Finals without him.
