Ok. St. doesn’t issue injury report; Lunt’s status unknown against UT

West Lunt AP

With Saturday’s game against Texas looming, Oklahoma State has decided it doesn’t want to give away any information regarding the health status of starting quarterback Wes Lunt. The school was already playing coy about whether Lunt or backup J.W. Walsh would start against the Longhorns, and a release on Friday said there would be no injury report for the game.

Oklahoma State has been releasing injury reports on Fridays this season.

Lunt sustained a knee injury two weeks ago in a win over Louisiana-Lafayette. On the Cowboys’ most-recent depth chart, Lunt and Walsh were listed as co-starters.

Texas is currently a slight favorite over Oklahoma State. With uncertainty still swirling about Lunt’s injury — the exact nature of it still has not been revealed — that shouldn’t change leading up to game time.

    Good for Oklahoma State! Everyone, including me, may think Lane Kiffen can be a bit bratty–although he is a good coach. But it’s still idiotic to give your opponent intelligence about the health of your players before the game. Make the opposing team prep for two QBs. That’s how it was done in the old days before the NFL started requiring coaches to give out injury reports to make it easier for gamblers to set their odds. Reporting isn’t required in college ball, and it’s time coaches stopped adhering to a “gentlemen’s agreement” that’s not in the best interest of competition.

    And as for that bit about it being unfair to reporters and bloggers who then won’t have anything to write about before the game … aw, gee. Guess they’ll have to go back to getting the info the old-fashioned way: trying to wheedle it out of their sources and all that good stuff ;)

    JW Walsh’s dad, John Walsh, the head coach at Denton, TX Guyer High school, has already stated that his son has been practing with the first team for the last two weeks…..so, in a round about way, I guess Lunt and Walsh are co-first teamers until the game starts.

    however, neither one of those gentlemen will be saved by the bell….the Horns D line of Okafor, Jeffcoat, Whaley and Moore will be in the backfield more than the okie st rb’s and while okie state has ran up the scoreboard on the likes of savannah state, and louisiana lafayette, they got housed by an Arizona team coming off of a losing record.

    Texas is not Arizona..Okie st has had there way with the Horns the last two years, winning by 16 and 12 respectfully the last two years in Austin, where they hadnt won since WW II in 1944..it was fun while it lasted, but the party is over…

    the fox national network audience for the 650pm central kickoff will see this result:

    Horns 44
    Cowboys 23

    I like it. As a fan I am dying to know. Even though I think it will be Walsh.

    There is some speculation about if not releasing the injury report was in retaliation to the BIG12 silencing our paddle people.

    It seems Texas went crying to the BIG12 because it’s too loud in Boone Pickens Stadium.

    Ben, I ripped you for the article on Jim Mora, so it is only fair that I commend you for writing this story from a factual and opinionated point of view.

    I hope this is the 3rd straight year that I have been nervous to play Texas, just to be like “really? that’s all they got?” after the game.

    that was supposed to be un-opinionated.

    “Ben, I ripped you for the article on Jim Mora, so it is only fair that I commend you for writing this story from a factual and [un-]opinionated point of view.”

    Well, I’m going to give my opinion, but at this point my view on injury reports is pretty well-known, so no sense beating into even more.
