Mike Gundy discusses QB Wes Lunt’s transfer

Mike Gundy, coach of the Oklahoma State Cowboys and confirmed 40-year-old, took some time on Monday to discuss quarterback Wes Lunt’s decision to transfer to the University of Illinois. Gundy said he discouraged Lunt from selecting a Pac-12 or SEC school due to potential bowl game match-ups:

In the back of my mind, part of it was, our major bowl games that we play are against SEC schools or a Pac-12 school. That was part of my thinking. He knows everything about our offense, every stinkin’ thing there is. We change certain things, but he could stand over there and watch us on TV and call just about every play we run (ESPN).

Gundy went on to compare the situation to a martial break-up:

It’s probably like a divorce. It’s never smooth, because two people decided all of a sudden it didn’t work. If we have a high-profile player transfer, we probably need to have a press conference and answer questions. Do I regret the decisions I made? No, because I know he got what he needed. Do I regret all the stuff that went along with it, yeah, but I didn’t know how to fix it, because I wasn’t going to go out and start changing things.

Lunt set an Oklahoma State freshman record by passing for 436 yards against the Arizona Wildcats last year.
