Triple Option: Sooners offer off the board
By Dane Beavers
Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.
1. The Oklahoma women's basketball team failed to make the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament for the first time in four years and the second time in seven years, losing to St. John's Tuesday night in Norman. Still, Sherri Coale's team had a fine season, especially considering the Sooners lost expected contributors Jasmine Hartman and Lyndsey Cloman early in the season to knee injuries.
3. Jake wrote about Oklahoma's backup quarterback situation on Monday and included a note about the 2013 starting QB race being truly wide open for the first time since 2007 when Sam Bradford won the job over Joey Halzle and Keith Nichol. That's kind of amazing to think about how lucky the Sooners have been and just how solid the position has been for the last six years. As for the 2013 race, the smart money's on Blake Bell but the darkhorse is Kendal Thompson. We continue to hear good things about his development.
