Offensive coordinator Todd Monken had an interesting take on Wes Lunt, saying he hopes Lunt does not continue to break any school records this season. Lunt is coming off a performance in which he posted 436 yards and four touchdowns -- the fourth best passing game in OSU history. While Monken's statement may seem odd, he does have a point. The team may actually be better off if the freshman quarterback does not have to put up ridiculous numbers. For this team, running the ball and playing defense are crucial. Lunt has plenty of time to put up numbers. This year is about learning, and for the Cowboys to get back on the right track, it will be up to other veterans to carry the load.
Oklahoma State has reportedly reached a deal that would pit the Cowboys against Mississppi State in the 2013 season opener. The game would take place at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. This could be big for the Cowboys, as it would give them the possibility for a nationally televised game and challenging opponent to open the season. I'm already looking forward to this game.
Apparently, Tracy Moore is figuring it out. This article details Moore's efforts to clean up his act and stay focused on football. According to the story, Moore now rarely leaves his apartment and is staying away from the party scene. This is great news, as the Cowboys can not afford for Moore to screw up again. However, this article does contain one thing that is worrying. Moore's father, Tracy Sr., said the following regarding his son's most recent citation for buying a minor alcohol:
"He was doing something for somebody else. And that's just Tracy's heart. He's got a heart as big as his smile."
I'm Not sure when buying alcohol for underage friends became a humanitarian act, but if that proves to be Moore's last run in with the law, I suppose his motivations for past offenses do not matter.
