The Oklahoman's Jenni Carlson hands out the grades after the White squad's 23-0 victory over the Red in the OU football spring game:

Landry Jones: B+

The sophomore quarterback was 17 of 34 for 211 yards and two touchdowns. He looked sharp much of the day, even with soggy conditions, and his numbers would've been even bigger had his receivers held onto the ball a bit better.

Weather: F

What happened to sunny and 70? This was supposed to be the spring game. The chilly, rainy conditions made it feel like anything other than spring.

Crowd: B-

With the less-than-favorable conditions, it's hard to believe anyone showed up. But 16,481 hearty souls braved the conditions to watch an intrasquad scrimmage. Should they be considered admirable or crazy? Maybe a bit of both.

Trent Ratterree: A-

The junior tight end showed some improved pass-catching abilities, making four catches for 41 yards and one touchdown. After Jermaine Gresham's injury last season, the Sooners lacked a tight end who could make plays with the ball in his hands. Ratterree may help fill that void next season.
