    I'm 35, went to lots of games in 1987 when Barry rushed for 622 yards (9 rushing touchdowns), averaged 16.2 yards per punt return and 31 yards per kick return.

    http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/barry-sanders-1.html

    Considering the pressure of being a punt returner for a highly ranked team as we were in 1987 (finished the season 9-2, ranked #11), it's not like Barry was wasting away on the bench (he was a 1st team All American kick returner).

    Anyone who saw Barry play in 87 knew he was going to be very good, but nobody thought he was going to be the best running back of all time. (which he is)

    It's not like Barry was playing behind Nathan Simmons!! haha

    I'm surprised that you guys would take Lunt over Blake Bell. Seriously?

    No way...I would not trade any of them, much less our starter.

    I think you're lying to yourself if you don't think a lot of OU fans wouldn't take Lunt or Walsh over Bell.

    No OU fans would take Lunt over Bell. You're delirious.

    Physical characteristics aside, it would take too long to get the entitlement out of any goon player for them be any good in our system.

    Most OU fans wouldn't take an established, conference winning, bcs bowl winning, first round draft pick QB (Landry) over Blake Bell. They dam sure wouldn't take Lunt or Walsh.

    JW Walsh, Denton Texas

    RANKING

    Blake Bell, Wichita Kansas

    So basically JW and Bell are about the same as prospects and Chelf has better passing numbers in real live games overall than either... yet PJ says we would trade them BOTH and our starter for the #2 guy a ou...That's the Hight of pandering to the ou fanbase and just a flat out uninformed and stupid comment.

    Wow. You honestly think Blake Bell gives Oklahoma a better chance of winning than Landry Jones?

    And who exactly is the delirious one now?

    People who want to be artists but don't have an ounce of talent become critics. Coaches who no longer know how to coach the game because it has passed them by become analysts.

    Did I ever say that? No. You apparently can't read. Not once did I lump myself in with MOST of OU fans.

    And I've been reading on here for months how you Cowboys think Bell WOULD give them a better chance.

    Are we talking about as High School prospects or College football players? I concede the fact that they were rated the same coming out of high school. Bell is obviously better than Walsh if he can't win the starting job over a freshman who's been there for only four and half months.

    And of Course Chelf has better passing numbers. He threw the ball more. All you have to go by Lunts ability is what he did this spring and Bell showed out just as much as Lunt did so don't say he can't throw.

    When Barry Sanders first stepped on campus he was 160 lbs. Barry played at 205 his junior year when he won the Heisman. So there was definitely some growing that Barry needed to get done before he was big enough to take hits.

    A person could definitely say that OU's starting running back would be fourth or fifth team at OSU. OU would trade all of their running backs for Randle, Smith or Sims. And this despite OU's running back very well will be a preseason all-conference pick. But if Randle, Smith or Sims were at OU they would be a preseason all-conference pick too. It is a bit of an embarrassment on OU's part that a walk-on beat out all their highly-recruited running backs. And it's not like the walk-on is Adrian Peterson or Billy Sims, he's not even Demond Parker. Average walk-on beat out OU's average recruits. That is what happened.

    We have running backs why would we trade our best quarterback for another one?

    Yeah, actually, you did, or have you forgotten so quickly?

    Or apparently you can't form a coherent argument.

    Prove it.

    Find one instance of a Cowboy fan saying they would rather have Blake Bell than any of Oklahoma State's quarterbacks currently on the roster and I will gladly eat my words.
