Whether Bell is cleared to play or not before the Sooners walk into Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium, it has to be Knight’s show now.
Stoops said continuity was a factor in sticking with Bell as long as he did, but he doesn’t have to worry about that any more. Not to mention, the idea that Bell’s the better thrower has been debunked. Before getting hurt, he’d completed 2 of 5 passes for 10 yards.
So OU might have found something Saturday against the Cyclones. Hope may reign where before it only waned.
Just don’t think this team has figured it out. All it’s really earned is separation from the bad mojo it brought with it back from Waco. It’s still a very long way away.
