Found August 12, 2013 on Fox Sports Southwest:
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.
