As expected, former Oklahoma State quarterback Wes Lunt has made the move to Illinois. His transfer is a significant victory for the maligned Tim Beckman, but now the pressure will continue for the Illini head coach to have a team capable of supplementing what surrounds his new quarterback in 2014.
Before we get to Beckman though, it should be noted that Oklahoma State head coach...
It was easy to get a feeling back on June 8 that Jeremiah Ledbetter would end up casting his future football lot with Oklahoma State. The 6-3, 292-pound defensive tackle was in Stillwater with several of his Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College teammates and some other junior college prospects as they watched a record number of high school players go through the Cowboys one-day minicamp.
The door on the west side of the building read "Enter Here," and the Oklahoma State Cowboys don't have to be told twice to walk through the double doors into their new indoor football home. The now completed Sherman Smith Training Center is one big cavernous building with motorized doors that raise up to allow air flow through the facility.
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois coach Tim Beckman says quarterback Wes Lunt's transfer from Oklahoma State is official.
Beckman said Tuesday that the sophomore-to-be signed paperwork to transfer to Illinois. Lunt held a news conference in his hometown, Rochester, to announce his plans to join the Illini.

Former Oklahoma State quarterback Wes Lunt appears to be headed to Illinois, according to ESPN and cbssports.com.

Illinois is coached by former Oklahoma State assistant Tim Beckman.
Lunt was the only true freshman to start at quarterback in OSU. He threw for 1,108 yards, six...
The thought was that Oklahoma State would take a specialist in the 2014 recruiting class but with 2013 signee Ben Grogan capable of doing all three (kick placements, kickoff and punt) the questions were what would Grogan do and what would the Cowboys look for in the 2014 class? The answer is Zach Sinor, who is a returning Class 4A All-State punter out of Medina Valley High School.
The buzz around Stillwater suggests the Oklahoma State Cowboys offense will function at a pace never seen before by OSU faithful. The 40-yard dash time of Ra’Shaad Samples supports this theory.
Samples was the prized recruit for coach Mike Gundy’s 2013 recruiting class. The wideout from Dallas, Texas arrived in Stillwater with a ton of hype. His speed has...
Most of the Oklahoma State Cowboys scholarship newcomers are on campus.

We're about to find out just how much Brent Loveland's shirt is worth.
Loveland, of Choctaw, Okla., claims he was fired from a construction job at the Stillwater, Okla., home of Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy for wearing a University of Oklahoma baseball t-shirt.
There is a pre-trial conference scheduled for Monday in Logan County, which is adjacent to Payne County...

This time of year Oklahoma State's BOB (Big Orange Buses) only has a limited number of shuttle runs between Stillwater and the OSU-Tulsa campus. But on Wednesday those buses were loaded with Cowboys football players who were dispatched to El Reno, Shawnee, and Carney as players and some of the support staff could help victims of the fierce weather Oklahoma experienced in the month of May.
Oklahoma State may have already found its replacement for the departed Wes Lunt, as quarterback Mason Rudolph of Northwestern High School (SC) pledged to the Cowboys Wednesday morning.
Rudolph committed during an announcement at his school, which was broadcast live on a local radio station—which just goes to show how big of an impact he's had on his community from on-field...
