The Oklahoman's Jason Kersey took questions from readers in today's OU Power Lunch Chat. Join our Power Lunch Chats Monday-Friday at 11 a.m. on NewsOK.com/Sports. Here are a few highlights from today's chat. Read the entire transcript here.
Will Blake Bell be nearly as good as Landry Jones?
There is rarely a more popular player than the backup quarterback when things aren't going 100 percent right and that's even more true of Bell because he does get in and bring a different element to the game. But Bell comes in for situations where his chances of success are better. Certainly it's a different story when he's got to come in, down a touchdown and needing to drive 90 yards. There will be some growing pains with whatever quarterback replaces Landry next year, and I think fans will appreciate a bit more what LJ brings to the table with some added perspective.
Is Blake Bell a lock to be the starter next year?
He's definitely the favorite, but look out for Trevor Knight. The true freshman has been impressive on scout team and sounds like he could push Bell.
Should we be worried about OU basketball after last night's loss to Stephen F.Austin?
