OSU football: Gundy expects to learn a lot about QBs in Friday scrimmage
OSU coach Mike Gundy expects to learn “a bunch” Friday afternoon about Spencer Sanders and Dru Brown as they compete for the Cowboys’ starting quarterback job in the fall.
The Cowboys will use most of Friday’s practice time for a scrimmage.
“They’re still babied a little bit right now, based on the way practices are set up, just for youth,” Gundy said of his quarterbacks. “They’re on their own Friday, so we’ll see what they do.
“That will be the first organized practice where we can start to see how much they actually know.”

Coaches have been wearing headsets in practice to communicate in game-like settings for the last two weeks, in part, so that Gundy could see how new offensive coordinator Sean Gleeson worked in that environment.
“I needed to see Sean operate the tempo of our offense without a script,” Gundy said. “We’ve been on the headphones the last six practices, for the majority of those practices.
“I should’ve always done it in the spring, because it’s really good for the coaches.”
