Should we continue with Illingworth?
Looks like it’s Shane Illingworth the rest of the way for Oklahoma State. Sanders standing on the sideline without his helmet.
Gundy on pregame radio: “If Spencer Sanders gets ultra competitive & loses composure a bit, we can put #16 (Illingworth) in. It’s not a punishment. We have that luxury. Illingworth has played and playedon the road. We could do that, but Spencer has been good with composure. “
Shane Illingworth in years past is a near EXACT storyline of guys who have given #Sooners fits.
Prepare all week for one type of QB, another VERY different guy gets in and all the sudden heats up.
Illingworth = touchdown
Sanders = turnovers
Gundy has to stick with Illingworth. Have to be able to throw the ball.
I'm very high on Shane Illingworth, but OSU hasn't run the ball since he's come in. I don't get it, but as you were. #Sooners get 3 'n out.
Nik Bonitto did a great job picking up a tight end and then curling back and tackling Illingworth. Then Ronnie Perkins gets a huge tackle for a loss after OSU creeps into OU territory.
Gabe Brkic 29-yd FG. #Sooners 27, OSU 7 - 8:39 left 2nd qtr. Big drive coming up for Cowboys, Illingworth.
I’m gonna say it: I know Illingworth is not 100% ready to be the guy, but the offense is just different when he’s in. Ball out quicker, moves the chains. It just looks different. And no we’re not winning this game, but Spence ain’t it. Love his heart and passion but man...
Illingworth to Logan Carter for a 15-yard TD on the very next play after the Bookie penalty. #Sooners 21 OSU 7 with 2:03 remaining in the 1st QTR.
Not sure if it means anything, but Spencer Sanders is sitting on a training table (with his helmet) by himself while the rest of the offense talks through things.
Gotta wonder if this is the Shane Illingworth show going forward. #Bedlam #OKState
we all prefer Illingworth anyways, it’s okay to ✨agree✨
And on the first play, he is in great coverage on a deep pass from Shane Illingworth.
Oklahoma State QB Spencer Sanders left Saturday night's game vs. Oklahoma after being sacked in the first quarter.
Shane Illingworth is coming back onto the field.
Sanders is on the sidelines without a helmet.
That's *NOT* saying it's been taken from him or he's definitely done for the day.
Please keep Shane in. I love SS but Illingworth has been so solid
This time it actually WAS Tre Norwood on the pass deflection on another blitz. Illingworth still at QB for #OKState
Illingworth has been overthrowing guys by a significant amount
let's roll back the tape... all the way back on Sept. 12, I told y'all that Spencer Sanders would be benched in favor of Shane Illingworth at some point in 2020.
I'd say that take is aging pretty immaculately.

Illingworth still looks like a freshman. Half his passes aren’t even close. Kid’s gonna be the truth but not right now.
Illingworth can throw, but he takes mobility out of the equation. Grinch will attack him on passing downs. #Sooners OKState
Illingworth had Stoner open for a first down, but threw behind him ... probably because the pocket was collapsing. #OKState to punt
Holly Rowe reporting that coaches asked if Sanders was ok, and he apparently shook his head no.
It appears to be Illingworth's game. https://t.co/8n5hlpgEH7
Illingworth has wheels. Not very fast ones but they are there
It’s a different offense with Shane Illingworth on the field. Spencer can move the pocket. Shane stays in the pocket.
"Illingworth is not really a runner..." no truer words have been spoken. #OkState
Not sure Illingworth is the QB to run that play
