QB mystery at Oklahoma

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Less than three weeks before Oklahoma's season opener, coach Bob Stoops seems unconcerned that he hasn't yet named a starting quarterback.

Stoops gave no indication that his decision will come any time soon and he told reporters he hasn't ruled out using both Blake Bell and Trevor Knight when the Sooners host Louisiana-Monroe on Aug. 31, saying "there's always that chance."

The last time Stoops waited this long to decide on a starting quarterback was 2007. He waited until that Aug. 21 to pick then-redshirt freshman Sam Bradford over Joey Halzle and Keith Nichol.

Bradford, of course, went on to win the Heisman Trophy in 2008 and returned to Oklahoma for the 2009 campaign, only to have his season shortened by injury. His backup, Landry Jones, ascended to the top job and held it through 2012.

Bell appeared to be Jones' heir apparent, as he saw considerable playing time last season as part of the Sooners' "Belldozer" power-running offensive set. Still, Stoops declared the job to be an open competition between Bell, Knight and Kendal Thompson. Thompson fractured his right foot on the opening day of preseason practice and fell out of the race, at least temporarily.

Stoops said he saw no drawbacks in waiting to name a starting quarterback.

"They're both being prepared to play, as well as (current third-stringer) Cody Thomas as well," Stoops said Monday. "But at the end of the day, I keep saying this, this isn't our first rodeo. We've done this a lot. We've won eight Big 12 championships with six different quarterbacks, so it hasn't really hurt us a lot. We're trying to get them all ready to play."

Stoops also said there's no guarantee that whoever is the starter against Louisiana-Monroe would keep the job the entire season, saying the quarterback position is just like any other.
