PLAYERS: Trevor KnightBlake BellBob Stoops
TEAMS:

Rumor Patrol: Multiple radio, TV and website based sources are predicting Trevor Knight will be named the starting quarterback for OU for the ULM game. They point to the practices were Knight is executing the offense better, get the majority of first-string reps and has a more explosive capability. Many of these media sources are claiming they have sources close to the team that are validating this selection. I have checked with several sources and not been able to confirm these rumors, but the practice information I am told is largely accurate.

If Trevor Knight is selected over Blake Bell it will be a major shock and story for many across the Sooner Nation, as many thought Bell experience, size and familiarity with the offense would give him a sizable advantage.  It seems that may not be the case. What do you think about the rumors?
