J.W. Walsh will have a role in Cowboys' 'O'
By Brent Sobleski
Clint Chelf left spring practice as Oklahoma State's starting quarterback. Wes Lunt decided to transfer. It's yet to be determined what J.W. Walsh's role will be within Oklahoma State's offense. The only certainty is the Cowboys' will find a way to utilize Walsh's skills this fall.
"Walsh earned enough respect last season and as a workout demon since that OSU was at least going to have a package for him even if he isn't the starter," Jimmie Tramel of the Tulsa World wrote. "The operative words in that last sentence were 'at least.'"
Walsh could be used similarly to the "Bell-dozer" at Oklahoma. Walsh doesn't possess the same size as Sooners' quarterback Blake Bell, but Walsh is a very good athlete. Tramel insisted Walsh is "apparently is guaranteed to play no matter, with OSU’s short-yardage package..."
Tramel also insinuated Oklahoma State's competition to start at quarterback is far from over.
"Yurcich handled it last year, pushing his team to an 11-2 record, including a 10-game winning streak," Morris wrote. "Yurcich has made it work before, and he's likely in an office somewhere in Boone Pickens Stadium scheming how to make it work again."
