    Amazing he was able to get that big 12 title in '09 with the O-line we had that year. :p

    As much as people want him gone, this is a good thing for the team. This should give us a couple more wins than we would have had under Allen or Bell.
  5. Drew Allen to transfer now?

    It is probably really difficult to, given our recent history of what happens immediately after you transfer: You find out that you would have gotten your shot.

    This transferring curse has divebombed everyone from Keith Nichol to Noah Allen. You could even include Paul Thompson (who "transferred" to wide receiver) and Rhett Bomar (forced to transfer) in that discussion. If the players stayed as OU quarterbacks, they would have been OU starters.

    Barring any unforeseen early departures, OU is looking strong next year!

    I like Jones and I am not upset by his return. I just hope he shows better leadership this off seasonand next season. I was impressed with him in the bowl game trying to het the team pumped up and being more vocal on the sidelines.

    He has the tools to be a good NFL QB. He hasbeen lacking the verbal leadership when things are not going good. Most of the time he just looked like a deer in headlights when mistakes or drops occurred.

    Goodfor Landry and OU that he has decided to come back.

    Now I hope Stoops opens the QB competition up and make him earn it andnot just give it to him since he is a 3 year starter!

    Hopefully the backup will get alot of reps and build a rapport with these young receivers.

    I believe B.S. will have the BEST QB we have on the field next year. If Thats LJ then thats what I want also to.

    OU should be a the preseason favorite by a wide margin with Landry back. He has some limitations but other than Geno Smith (who has never played a Big XII game), OU will have the best QB in the conference (by far IMO) and many impact players returning on both sides of the ball.

    You don't think Keith would have started ahead of Landry after Sam Bradford went down in the BYU game? Or are you just saying that Keith doesn't regret leaving because he caught that epic goalline muscle-in-for-score pass to beat then-undefeated Wisconsin? :)

    Are you saying to win the conference or the MNC? Because I can already tell you preseason #1 next year is USC. ESPN can't wait to give them on air fellatio again, it's been too long...

    Good news for next year. As above posters stated, we will ranked a little higher and will be favored in more games. I just hope he acts like a senior leader and leads us to #8. This also has to be good news for our recieving corps coming in.

    I meant conference, not MNC. There is no way we are a favorite for the MNC, nor should we be. We are in a mix of 8-10 teams that have a legit shot though IMO.
