We asked 96 Sooner fans who will be OU's starting quarterback in 2011. The results:

Landry Jones: 70 percent

Blake Bell: 25 percent

Drew Allen: 3 percent

Kendal Thompson: 2 percent

What Sooner fans are saying about OU's quarterbacks:

Les Kimbro, Ardmore: "It will be Landry because he'll have all that experience. Blake Bell might be a superstar, but Landry will have played a lot of games."

Richie Dunn, Benbrook, Texas: "I've seen Blake Bell on TV. He's the man, the real deal. He's really talented."

David Protus, Edmond: "Landry Jones is like Sam Bradford. He's not quite as good as Sam, but he's good. Blake Bell may move into the backup spot."

Jan Hatch, Norman: "I have confidence in Stoops to pick the best player for the team. It's not just about what you do on the field. It's about being a team leader. And if Landry has a good year, I think it'll be hard to take it away from him."

Dave Anderson, Ardmore: "I think (Jones) will be the starter. He got criticized a lot for getting sacked, but our offensive line had too many injuries. When he had time ... I think with a better offensive line, he'll do a real good job this year."

Matt Johnson, Lawton: "We've watched a lot of Blake Bell's highlights, and that guy's good."
