Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said he hasn't decided on a quarterback and seems to content to wait to name one.
The Sooners went through a closed-to-the-publicmedia scrimmage Saturday, but Stoops wouldn't elaborate on who might have the edge as we get closer to the team's opening game Aug. 31 against Louisiana-Monroe.
Stoops went on to say he was not going to make any formal announcement to the team when a decision on who the starting quarterback will be is made.
"This isn't our first rodeo," Stoops said. "We've won eight Big 12 championships with six different quarterbacks. It hasn't really hurt us a lot. We're trying to get them all ready to play. We're not at all worried about it."
Blake Bell is considered to be the front-runner with Trevor Knight and Cody Thomas receiving snaps as well. Kendal Thompson was injured on the first day of practice and had foot surgery.

The Oklahoma Sooners kick off their 2013 football season in less than three weeks against Louisiana-Monroe. One store in Miami, Oklahoma, is showing its Sooner pride the only way it can – with a giant display made from cases of soda.
Do you think that it can compete with this ECU display from earlier this year?
The Sooners have all the depth at defensive end. So despite a great sophomore season at end, Chuka Ndulue was asked to move to tackle this season.
