Wes Lunt leaves OSU

Welp, nobody saw this coming.

It’s true, Mike Gundy announced late on Thursday afternoon that Wes Lunt was leaving Oklahoma State after one season of slinging it around. Here’s the official statement from Gundy:

“We appreciate Wes and we thank him for everything he has done. He’s leaving on good terms and is making this decision based on what he thinks is best for his future.”

And from Lunt:

“This was not a decision I took lightly, but it is a decision that I felt was right for me. I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to the entire Oklahoma State University community. Specifically, I would like to thank the coaches, players, and the whole OSU football family. I wish the Cowboys the best of luck in the future.”

I don’t know about you guys but I’m pretty bummed. I was in love with Lunt’s arm from day one and even though we were Choo-Chooin’ for the second half of last season Lunt (and his cannon) were always the future.

How many f-bombs of joy has Todd Monken dropped in the last five minutes in hopes that the crown jewel of his recruiting time at OSU will meander south to Hattiesburg? I’ll set the over/under at 99.5.

So I guess this means Clint Chelf will be the starter when OSU opens with Mississippi State in September which I’m fine with, but I have a feeling OSU fans are going to be looking back on this day with remorse for years to come.

Could Gundy have handled things differently? Was there a faction between Walsh/Chelf/Lunt (there didn’t seem to be)? Does he just not like Legos?

Whatever the reason, OSU is worse off (both for this season) and (mostly) the future without Wes Lunt.

Farewell, 1s, every deep ball made us gasp — enjoy your success elsewhere, there will be much of it.
