    The best part of that interview is this statement by Monken:

    "But they’ll be fine. We’ll be fine. Winning and losing this year won’t be a matter of whether we find a quarterback or not," Monken said. "It’ll be, will we stay healthy with the guys we have and the depth that we have. That’ll be the big thing. The guys will play well around whoever we have."

    What he is saying is that it's not going to matter who starts we are still going to win...That's what I've been saying all spring...and that's why we need to support whomever is named... he's going to win.

    Go back to an earlier post this spring where I said the OSU QB will lead the Big 12 in passing. We have three capable QBs (although one of them or more might be better than just capable?)

    The 2012 version of the OSU Cowboys will be a better team averaged across the starting positions than the 2011 version. It is yet to be seen though if big play makers come through to win the Stanford games or not where Blackmon basically took over the game with a little help from his friends.

    Totally agree. Optimism should abound. I just hope they name someone (anyone) to make sure they get the summer work outs done correctly and with confidence...Maybe they can assure the team that whomever wins the job will be deserving and will lead them to a championship. Don't know...it's a bit of a dilemma but it happens when you lose someone like Weeden...I'm just glad we have three QB's who are very good as options. The main issue is external… when you go on dates with three hot chicks and then you have to narrow it down to the one you like the best...someone's going to be upset and not like the choice...someone's friends are going to be upset with you and someone’s parents are also going to be upset. Right now is about making the best decision for the team and creating the best opportunity for good morale of everyone involved…plus making damn sure the other two remain your friends so you can fall back on them if your choice chic dumps you. ;)

    If we're equating OSU quarterbacks to our former dating lives, you might as well just call me Alex Cate.

    "He’s a tough son of a Monken. If he’s not, then he’s a phony son of a Monken, but he sure seems like one," offensive coordinator Todd Monken said. "That’s a tough position. That’s a no nonsense position, and I think it fits his personality. I sit in on a few of their meetings and I think just his personality and the way he goes about it with those guys is the No. 1 reason."​

    Taking shots at another team's player in the media is bush league in my opinion. I understand that he is loved for always saying what is on his mind, but that crosses a line in college football. I bet Gundy sees it the same way, just dumb and uncalled for.

    I don't think it was good analogy to use, but it'll definitely be bulletin board material.

    Last year's Bedlam win was huge for many reasons. One of those reasons is we simply shouldn't worry so much about providing "bulletin board" material anymore. I'm sure the guys from Norman were plenty fired up coming into Bedlam last year, and we just absolutely took them to the woodshed.

    If OU wants to use Monken's words as motivation, then fine. The reality -- at least, in my opinion -- is this: if you need to rely on "bulletin board material" to get riled up for a game, then you're missing something from the outset.

    This is a different OSU program. This program has balls. We haven't had this much swagger since the Les Miles era, and OU fans HATE it. Guess what? It's here to stay, and they can just GTF over it.

    I didn't mean it was the only reason the Sooners or Landry Jones should be fired up for Bedlam for. It's just more fuel to the fire.
