Oklahoma State football : Stock report for Cowboys' quarterback J.W. Walsh

by John Helsley Published: August 26, 2014

The stock report on J.W. Walsh has trended up and down.

Bullish. Bearish.

Mirrors his career, really, which has featured spiking highs and tumbling lows.

A look at the best and worst of Walsh, so far:

Best Of 2012

Louisiana-Lafayette: The Cowboys won 65-24, with Walsh entering for an injured Wes Lunt to throw for 347 yards and four TDs, adding 73 yards and a score on the ground.

Texas: The Longhorns won, 41-36, but Walsh was good. The defense … not so much. Walsh threw for 301 yards and two TDs and ran for 57 yards.

Iowa State: Playing through the pain from a lingering knee injury, Walsh threw for 415 yards and a score, completing 32 of 47 passes. He also ran for 46 yards and another touchdown in a 31-10 win.

Best Of 2013

Mississippi State: Walsh’s numbers weren’t spectacular –- 135 passing, 125 rushing — but he managed the game and a 21-3 win after relieving Clint Chelf on the third series.

UTSA: In a near flawless performance, Walsh completed 24 of 27 throws for 326 yards and four TDs and ran for another score. The Cowboys rolled 56-35.

Worst Of 2013

West Virginia: The Cowboys were a big road favorite, but Walsh and the offense never got going. OSU lost 30-21, a setback that proved regrettable when the Cowboys fell just short of a Big 12 title.

TCU: Walsh misfired frequently and made bad decisions, including one that resulted in a pick in the Frogs’ end zone. Clint Chelf came on in the second quarter and led a 24-10 win. Walsh attempted just three passes the rest of the season.
