Do you know what teams might be interested in Landry for the 2013 NFL draft?
 
Seems like there are plenty of NFL teams in need of a quarterback. Kansas City and Phoenix immediately pop to mind. 
 
Since both are likely to have very high picks, they might look at trading down to get some other pieces from another team. But it seems like to me that any team that needs a quarterback would clearly look at Landry.
 
There might be one or two more pro-ready quarterbacks in this draft class. Matt Barkley from USC comes to mind. But past him, there aren't obvious quarterbacks who you'd pick above Landry.

Who is the most exciting running back you have ever seen play for OU?

I have to admit, Larry, I wasn't around for Joe Washington's time, but the film I've seen of him clearly puts him in the running for most exciting.
 
Of the ones I've see myself, I'd have to go with Adrian Peterson. I know he's best known for his punishing style, but he also had the ability to take just about any run to the house. That made him so exciting to watch. And he's continued to run that way in the NFL. He's really a remarkable player. (Shameless plug -- be sure to check out Berry Tramel's column on Adrian in Sunday's paper.)
 
If Mike Gundy were at some point asked by the Longhorns to be their head coach, do you think he would accept?
 
First of all, when Mack Brown retires, I think Texas will shoot as high as possible.
