While there wasn’t a lot of information from Oklahoma football practice Tuesday, there were some bits of news that surfaced.
Nope, not that news. OU still hasn’t picked a starting quarterback.
No decision yet
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said Blake Bell took snaps with the first team offense today and said Trevor Knight took the snaps with the first team offense on Monday.
Then he said he still hasn’t reached a decision on the starting quarterback.
With less than two weeks to go before the Sooners take on Louisiana-Monroe on Aug. 31, Stoops has not only not made a starting quarterback decision, but reiterated there is no timetable for a decision, either.
He even went as far as to say both quarterbacks could play in the season opener, even referencing the movie, “Dumb and Dumber,” suggesting there’s, “always a chance.”
When told Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy hasn’t picked a starter yet either and likely won’t until his team plays Mississippi State on Aug. 31., Stoops said, “Geez, I should try that.”
Ndulue suspended also?
On Tuesday afternoon, a source said starting quarterback to be Cortez Johnson would be suspended for the first game for violating team rules.
Stoops did not deny that would would saying the matter would be dealt with internally. The same could be said for defensive tackle Chuka Ndulue who was arrested for a DUI complaint in the offseason. Stoops did not elaborate on that, but defensive lineman Charles Tapper mentioned it in passing, saying, “When Chuka returns,” in a question about how good the defensive line will be this season.
Johnson was arrested along with receiver Jalen Saunders last December and were in possession of marijuana. The charges against Saunders were later dropped.
Reynolds back with the team
Wide receiver Jaz Reynolds, who missed all of last season after being suspended is back with the team and will play Aug 31 against Louisiana-Monroe, Stoops said.
Reynolds also was suspended for part of the season in 2010. He is a senior who caught five touchdowns in 2011, has 54 career catches.
