STILLWATER — If the pre-game meal is any indication, true freshman quarterback Wes Lunt didn't appear to have many butterflies before starting Saturday's season opener against Savannah State.
According to Mike Gundy, his rookie quarterback ate a hearty meal that easily could have rivaled that of an offensive lineman or the great emperors of old.
"I eat hardly anything on game day, myself as a play or a coach because I guess I get more of a nervous stomach than most people," Gundy said. "I was walking through all the guys sitting down for pre-game meals and he had enough food on there to feed a horse. And I thought, 'Obviously he's not real concerned.'"
While offensive lineman Lane Taylor didn't see what Lunt had to eat, he was impressed to hear his QB could have given him a run for his money at the dining table.
"Usually the tall, lanky guys can eat a little bit, so I might have to take a peak at his plate next time we have dinner," Taylor said.
