One coach recently told me what many presumed over the years: Landry Jones was overrated.
“He wasn’t a bad quarterback, but he’s Oklahoma’s all-time leading passer because he was there forever and ever,” he said.
On the flip side, perhaps Bell is currently being underrated. Part of that is probably because the job technically isn’t even his yet. Coach Bob Stoops insists that Trevor Knight is not out of it.
It would be a surprise, though, if Bell did not emerge. He has thrown just 20 passes and as part of the “Belldozer” package he has rushed for 24 touchdowns, so that automatically makes a lot of observers want to make a Tebow comparison. But OU’s coaches have contended for years that Bell can throw.
