Todd Monken slams Landry Jones, Sooners

By SoonerNation staff

In a recent interview with Big 12 blogger David Ubben, Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Todd Monken had some harsh words for Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones and the Sooners.

Here's what he said when talking about naming a starting quarterback:

Monken's not exactly sweating. He had a guy who could do it last year in Weeden, but looking around college football, he knows few teams have a quarterback who can truly carry a team.

"It didn’t take long when ol’ (Oklahoma receiver Ryan) Broyles went down and (OU) started running the dozer to think, 'Do we have our guy?' That didn’t take long," Monken said. "Landry Jones 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.'"

Jones, who threw two interceptions and lost two fumbles in the Sooners' blowout loss to Oklahoma State in December, spent a week with quarterback coach George Whitfield during spring break in March.
