Oklahoma State Cowboys season preview
Houston Nutt knows a little something about Oklahoma State football practices. Nutt was OK State’s starting quarterback from 1979-1981. and he had a chance to watch the 2014 squad on the practice field.
“I really enjoyed watching them practice. They look athletic,” Nutt said. “The running backs, they look awfully deep there. Desmond Roland leading the way there plus [quarterback] J.W. Walsh is back and he can beat you with his legs and arm.”
While the offense looks poised to come on strong this season, Nutt says there are some question marks with the defense.
“I worry about the defense because they’ve lost so many people,” Nutt told Mark Packer. “The defensive front is going to have to carry them through. The linebackers, secondary … is a little thin, little bit inexperienced.”
