Oklahoma State, Boise State Spring Football Starting Up Monday

Four schools begin spring football practice on Monday: the Oklahoma St. Cowboys, Boise St. Broncos, Temple Owls and UNLV Rebels. Yes, it's amazing that this list includes two soon-to-be Big East teams. Only Temple will be joining the conference this year, though.

Those two big-name teams have veteran quarterbacks to replace, with Kellen Moore and Brandon Weeden moving on after approximately 736 combined starts. Boise State blog OBNUG has been going in on Broncos spring practice projections for quite a while now, late last week casting Joe Southwick as the man with the first chance at replacing Moore.

OSU's official depth chart has Clint Chelf, J.W. Walsh and Wes Lunt contending for the job. I'm having a hard time deciding which of those names is the most Oklahoma, so Mike Gundy's got his work cut out there.

Temple leaves the MAC, with 5'5 running back Matt Brown hoping to take over for the NFL-bound Bernard Pierce. Penn St. Nittany Lions transfer Kevin Newsome could challenge for starting quarterback Chris Coyer's spot.

And UNLV, which shuffled its coaching staff by switching linebackers coach J.D. Williams in for former coordinator Kraig Paulson, must improve its 105th-ranked defense despite losing four key starters.
