Get ready for all those bad puns about Oklahoma's quarterback situation changing "like Knight and day." They're coming.
Here's the report that has people talking: Trevor Knight will soon be named the starting quarterback at Oklahoma, according to Dean Blevins of News 9. Bob Stoops once again denied that a decision has been made. Berry Trammel believes a platoon of Knight and Blake Bell is in order. Stoops tries quoting "Dumb and Dumber" to shoot down that possibility. He also announced that most of OU's 2013 recruiting class will play this fall.
Mack Brown tells Yahoo's Pat Forde he wants to finish the job at Texas and hopes to coach through 2020. Touted juco transfer tackle Desmond Harrison returns to practice, but his academic issue still isn't resolved. Texas running backs are ready to share carries again in the up-tempo offense.
What role will J.W. Walsh have for Oklahoma State this season? Glenn Spencer is asking for five turnovers a day from his defense. OSU tackle Devin Davis has gone from unheralded recruit with no other offers to starting tackle. Shamiel Gary is holding down the strong safety job for OSU.
Paul Rhoads spent time Tuesday passing out candy to Iowa State freshmen during dorm move-ins. Iowa State's Kirby Van Der Kamp is the best punter in the nation, if you ask Rhoads. ISU's quarterback depth is the good kind of boring, writes Randy Peterson of the Des Moines Register, and backup Grant Rohach's development is on schedule. Cyclones defensive end Willie Scott's suspension is over.
New Kansas starting safety Isaiah Johnson has a knack for grabbing interceptions. A fellow junior college transfer, cornerback Kevin Short, practiced for the first time Tuesday. KU defensive coordinator Dave Campo bothered by "fast-break offense" throughout the Big 12.
And last but certainly not least, Barry Switzer talked a variety of topics with the Dallas Morning News, including OU, Darrell Royal, paying players and Johnny Manziel.
