The Oklahoma State Cowboys completed their spring practices, and just like their cross-state rival, have not named a starting quarterback on the post-spring depth chart.
All three competing for the job – Wes Lunt, Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh – were listed at the No. 1 spot on the depth chart that was released on Tuesday. All three having playing time experience from the 2012 season and all three have wins under their belt.
Not only do they have conference wins, all three quarterbacks had over 1000 yards last season, making the decision for head coach Mike Gundy that much harder.
During spring workouts, it looked like Chelf was coming out as the leader, with Gundy basically hinting that the other two weren’t ready to start for the first game. Gundy has also made sure all three quarterbacks are not available to the media until further notice.
At this point, who can blame him? The Cowboys start the season with a high-profile game with Mississippi State on a neutral field in Houston. No point in giving away your game plan when you don’t have to.
As many have predicted – and I tend to feel the same way – the Cowboys are setting themselves up to win another conference championship in 2013. The players they have returning and the collective experience of the all three quarterbacks looking to start give them a great advantage heading into next season.
The offensive starters listed on the depth chart have all played in at least one game for the Cowboys, and the defense has the most senior-heavy group of starters on the team.
With what seems like an unlimited amount of weapons for whatever quarterback goes under center for the Cowboys, they are definitely looking like the early threat.
