    From this morning's Daily Oklahoman. One of the challenges for any QB is to gain the respect of his teammates and it looks like to me that Wes is in the groove. I talked to David Glidden's grandfather Friday night, David and J.W. Walsh are roomies I believe he said, and he volunteered that David is "very impressed" with young Mr. Lunt. I told him that I expect Wes to do well this year, by reasonable standards, but beyond that we could have something really special in the coming three years. In particular, a certain NFL scout had some nice things to say about Wes this past week, and these freshman wideouts, e.g. Curry, Shepard, Hayes and Seales appear to be the real deal. How sweet is:

    Lunt gets bigger, stronger

    Bulking up in Stillwater Quarterback ready for rigors of Big 12 football

    • By Gina Mizell

    STILLWATER — During a meeting with reporters at Big 12 Media Days in Dallas last month, one of the first things Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy mentioned about new starting quarterback Wes Lunt was not his arm strength or grasp of the Cowboys’ offensive system.It was Lunt’s new weight. The first-year quarterback had gained about 15 pounds of muscle on his 6-foot-4 frame since arriving in January, bulking up to 220 pounds.“He looks more physical,” Gundy said following the Cowboys’ first fall practice earlier this month.

    Sure, looking the part of a strong Big 12 quarterback is all fine and good. But Lunt’s physical development is a crucial piece of getting the 18-year-old ready for his first season of college football. He’s going to throw more footballs than ever in his life. And he’s going to take a ton of hits from defenders that are much bigger than the ones he faced in high school.

    It's amazing how Coach Glass can lead these guys to totally transform their bodies.

    I think we should all be pretty excited about Lunt. Not only for his potential, but for this season as well.

    I didn't, I added my personal comments, so technically......... I've been sold on him for a long time and I'm gratified to see how mature he is, how hard he works, how down to earth he is and the whole spread. I saw a clip of him this week in practice, backing off and getting his teammates positioned properly, not too shabby indeed. He appears to be further along than I suspected.

    I think Wes Lunt is eventually going to be a really good quarterback for us, but the confirmation bias on this forum is worse than it's ever been before.

    Yea, everyone should stop thinking we have a shot to win the big 12. Back to the loser mentality.

    it is with some people. Every now and then someone always asks "why did you only post part of the article?"

    I saw the article on line, but could not view it because I don't have their premium service. This may be a new tactic to withhold some info for get more pay access. The article is not shown on the free page.

    I also have a suggestion for Philranger. Try posting more content information to balance your need to provide face palms to those that may have made a mistakes getting information to the masses. I enjoy posts with content mistakes over posters correcting other posters.

    nothing added = nothing gained
