COPY-'Levelheaded' Robinson moves into starting QB role for Cowboys

Associated Press - September 20, 2007 3:35 PM ET

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State coaches and players say the change in starting quarterbacks has not been divisive within the team.

Zac Robinson replaced Bobby Reid when Reid was injured during the Florida Atlantic game and led OSU to a 42-6 win. Robinson then was named the starter for last week's game at Troy and will start Saturday in the Big 12 Conference opener against Texas Tech.

Offensive coordinator Larry Fedora calls Robinson level-headed and low-key and says that demeanor serves him well.

Robinson admits he's excited but says he empathizes with Reid who is his roommate when OSU is on the road.

But Robinson says he and Reid "have each other's back" and tell each other what they see from the other team no matter who's in the game and who is on the sideline.
