07:17 AM ET 05.20 | If it were up to Todd Monken, Wes Lunt would have stayed put. And that was well before Friday's news that Monken's new school is one of many -- along with all schools from the Big 12, Pac-12, SEC and Central Michigan -- that Oklahoma State is blocking as potential destinations for the for the former Cowboys quarterback. Instead, Monken said, he tried to steer Lunt back to Stillwater once learning of his decision to leave the Cowboys. ... Monken said he hasn't talked to Lunt, and despite all the natural connecting of dots linking the two, didn't foresee a good match. Still, according to sources, Lunt asked for a release to five schools: Southern Miss, Illinois, Vanderbilt, Tennessee and Louisville.

still think something else, other than playing time, is going on here.
Gundy seems smart enough to know how much backlash this will cause, and have to think there's something deeper

It sure is odd, and usually that's a good indication of "something else" being an issue.

And what's up with Gundy putting the SEC and PAC on the no-go list? The B12 I get, but what the heck does he care if the kid wants to go to Arizona St or Ole Miss or whatever?
