On the run, he throws a rope to a receiver.
It's not a play many high school quarterbacks can make. But as good as Bell was then and as good as he's been as the Belldozer, quarterbacking the Sooners full-time is a whole different deal.
“I feel like he'd be ready if his name was called,” said Sooner safety Tony Jefferson, who sees lots of Bell in practice.
Still, as a Sooner, Bell has thrown just four passes.
That number should increase significantly Saturday. Bell will have a chance to run this offense for real and true in an actual game. That's good news for the Sooners.
Ditto for Sooner fans looking for intrigue in this blowout.
“If it gets to that,” Stills said, “don't leave.”
