Three notable quarterback platoons in OSU history:
1. Harold Bailey & Charlie Weatherbie, 1976: Jim Stanley's staff never seemed settled on starter Charlie Weatherbie, regularly giving freshman Harold Bailey a shot. And in the Bedlam showdown, Bailey started. But Weatherbie came off the bench to lead OSU to victory and eventually a tie for the Big Eight title.
2. Jack Hartman & Bob Cook, 1948-49: Yep, that Jack Hartman, the Kansas State basketball coaching icon. Hartman was quite the quarterback. But Cook led the Cowboys in passing in 1947 as a freshman and 1950 as a senior. He and Hartman split time in between, on a couple of decent Oklahoma A&M teams.
3. Tony Pounds & Brent Blackman, 1971: Pounds was a record-setting passer, but he had to share time in 1971 with Blackman, a ballyhooed recruit who was a sophomore and led OSU in touchdowns with five.
