After quarterback Mason Rudolph signed with the Oklahoma State Cowboys earlier this week, OSU head coach Mike Gundy was asked if he thought the youngster could potentially battle J.W. Walsh for the starting job.
Uh, guys? It’s February.
Here’s Gundy’s great response, courtesy of NewsOK:
I’m not in any position to talk about the quarterback situation — and I won’t until after the Florida State game. I’m not gonna bring it up in the spring. I’m not gonna bring it up in the summer. We’re gonna have those three guys that are gonna go out and compete …
I’m in no position to even give you an answer right now, because we haven’t had those discussions. They haven’t been in meetings. We don’t know anything. We’re just gonna have to let them work through it for the next six months.
(Of course, Gundy’s unwillingness to speak about a potential “quarterback controversy” means we all get to spend months speculation about why he’s not willing to speak about a potential “quarterback controversy.” Because why wait for a story to develop when you can just manufacture it? Confirmation is dull in comparison to wild speculation, which is why I feel the need to report that — and this is from a reliable anonymous source — both Rudolph and Walsh will be starting quarterbacks after undoing a controversial conjoining procedure.)
