On the criticism Landry Jones gets, where he falls in the best QB's of the Stoops era and why, and on what his productivity will be like in 2012:

I think some of the criticism is deserved; he did really struggle without Broyles last year. But I also think some of it is unnecessarily harsh. He's still a record setting quarterback, and he's won some big games. He's got a lot to prove this year. I think he ranks in the group right under Bradford, White and Heupel. Right there with Nate Hybl, another guy who I think was unfairly criticized in a particularly harsh way.

He'll have a good year, but a lot of it will depend on how quickly he gets in step with all the new receivers. I think he's good enough to get there.

After reading the article you wrote about Geneo Grissom, why doesn't OU try him out on both side of the ball?
