On Thursday, Cowboy coach Mike Gundy announced that he has given the No. 1 quarterback designation to Lunt, a first-year freshman from Rochester, Ill.
After leading his high school team to consecutive state championships, Lunt enrolled at Oklahoma State in January.

Walsh (a redshirt freshman).
We need an off-season diversion. Here it is! OSU offensive coordinator Todd Monken is already apologizing and the season hasn't even started. [NewsOK]

That didn't take long. Landry went from like, “I'm the man to all of a sudden, ‘I haven't thrown a touchdown pass, I'm fumbling it over my head at Oklahoma State. I gotta go back and see my quarterback guru.'”
