When the 2012 season ended for Oklahoma State, Mike Gundy had three quarterbacks on the roster who could all legitimately start for the Cowboys. Wes Lunt declared he would be transferring shortly after in what turned out to be an extremely ugly situation for Gundy (that’s what happens when you keep a student-athlete from transferring to any school in the SEC, Big 12 or Pac-12).
Lunt’s departure left just Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh. Walsh was handed the starting duties in Week 1 against Mississippi State despite his sophomore status. Chelf, a senior, was told that he would see the field even though he would not be starting.
However, Chelf’s brother, former Cowboys wide receiver Colton, was not impressed with how Gundy decided to divvy up playing time.
Tell the world how you really feel. Of course, the tweet has since been deleted, but we’re pretty sure that’s not going to make Gundy any more inclined to put his brother on the field.
Can’t say we blame him – a brother’s love is a brother’s love, and so on and so forth.
The younger Walsh completed 18-of-27 passes for 135 yards in the 21-3 win. Chelf finished 3-for-6. Neither threw a touchdown or an interception.
On Monday, reports out of Stillwater are that Gundy has named Walsh the starting quarterback for the season.
