Red & White Game Instant Analysis

We're getting underway. Blake Bell is the only
QB with a blue jersey with red numbers. No idea what that's about.

* We're underway and Blake Bell starts out as QB. Misses a crossing route to Saunders over the middle.

* Bell actually throws a forward pass.

* Bell still plugging away and hits a nice pass to Saunders who is playing outside with Shepard in the slot. Lacoltan Bester is starting on the outside.

* OU defense playing a 4-2-5.

* Cheers go up for a Blake Bell running play. He just pulls the ball down and runs behind blockers.

* Ball is fumbled out of a big pile and Lacoltan Bester picks it up and runs it in for a touchdown.

* We believe Damien Williams fumbled it in the pressbox. The Masters is on instead of a replay.

KENDAL THOMPSON TAKES OVER AT QB

* Thompson completes his first pass. Sooners using tight ends in formations where they go with three wide receivers.

* Thompson's offensive line is Austin Woods and three walk-ons.

* Thompson scrambles and uncorks a deep pass that is overthrown. No issue with Thompson's arm strength.

* Sooners have to punt. Not a very good one.

TREVOR KNIGHT COMES IN AT QB WITH ONES

* Brennan Clay with a huge gain.

* OU is playing tired club music during the scrimmage.

* Trevor Knight pulls it down and run. Didn't look like a design run, because he was greeted by about four defensive linemen.

* Hunnicutt kicks a 41-yard field goal.

* Seriously, there are a lot of recruits here, stop playing the tired club music. You aren't helping yourself OU.

BLAKE BELL COMING OUT WITH QBS

* So far with all three QBs playing, Bell has looked the best.

* Bell back out with the twos now.

* Music is getting worse. Build me up buttercup or something.

* Too much QB run game, not even passing game so far.

* Great throw down the middle for Bell and Taylor McNamara drops it. Then he limps off the field.

* Now there is no mountain high enough for this offense to climb. Apparently recruits dig Motown.

* offense has to punt it away.

KENDAL THOMPSON WITH THE ONES

* Berry Tramel asking 'who was that?' after every play.

* Jackson 5 now playing. Is Al Eschbach in charge of the music?

* Great jukes by Roy Finch on a short pass but Thompson can't pick up first down adn goes three-and-out.

TREVOR KNIGHT COMING IN WITH THE TWOS

* That's the end of the first quarter. Nice crowd for an OU spring game. I'd say 18,000, 20,000?

* Trevor Knight almost picked off by Trey Franks.

BLAKE BELL IN THE GAME WITH THE ONES

* Our first really big play of the day. Durron Neal comes down with a long pass from Bell inside the 10-yard line.

* Durron Neal with a TD catch from Bell.

THOMPSON IN THE GAME NOW JUST BEFORE END OF 2ND QUARTER

* Thompson makes a bad throw into a big crowd of white jerseys.

* Another really ugly punt.

END OF THE FIRST HALF

* Blake Bell is clearly the best QB out there. That's what I've learned so far.

START OF THE SECOND HALF

TREVOR KNIGHT IN THE GAME WITH THE TWOS

* One thing that stands out about Knight and Thompson is they are quick to pull it down and don't really wait for receivers to come open.

* Knight hits Metoyer for a first down.

* Brandon Young breaks up a pass to Metoyer.

* Metoyer makes a big one-on-one catch on a jump ball from Knight to get the ball down to the two-yard line.

* Ahmad Thomas has been in teh game during this drive.

* David Smith with a 2-yard TD run. Knight leads Sooners on a scoring drive with the twos. Now they are going against probably more of a three defense though.

BLAKE BELL BACK IN WITH THE ONES

* Bell goes for it all to Bester down the field and Cortez Johnson defends really well. A bit under thrown, pass incomplete.

* Bell goes three-and-out with the offense.

THOMPSON IN WITH THE TWOS

* Rashod Favors might be strong, but he's really undersized.

* Trey Franks with a nice tackle up at the line.

* Kendal on a naked boot for a nice run.

* DJ Ward in the game at defensive end.

* Sooners go for it on fourth down near midfield. Drive extended. This is Thompson's best overall drive of the day.

* Favors was hurt and walked off, but he's still surrounded by trainers on the bench. Could be he got dinged in the head.

* Thompson dirving inside the five yard line behind Terrance Olds. We don't think Alex Ross has played today at all.

* Aaron Franklin with a forced fumble on Olds carry and Ahmad Thomas recovers. Defense forces the turnover.

TREVOR KNIGHT IN

* Knight fumbles the snap, Frank Shannon recovers and scores a touchdown.

BLAKE BELL IN AT QB WITH THE TWOS

* Sam Grant with a nice catch and bowls over a few defenders.

* Roy Finch goes 49 yards for a TD. A little pass over the middle from Bell. Bell's stats get padded to look even better.

KENDAL THOMPSON BACK IN

* Drive went nowhere. Thompson pulled the ball down and tried to run on third-and-long. He was actually tackled.

TREVOR KNIGHT IN GAME

* Metoyer drops a pass. He had been doing really well up to that point. But too many drops today for him.

* Metoyer comes right back with a huge one-on-one catch down the field. About a 50-yard reception.

* Touchdown Trevor Knight to Don Caudill. A really nice throw on a deep slant route. Short TD pass, but well executed. He really put the ball in there too.

BLAKE BELL BACK IN WITH THE ONES

* Bell in a deep hole here. He tries to go to the Metoyer well. Nearly complete and well thrown ball but incomplete.

THOMPSON THE GAME

* Trevor Knight actually is going to have a really good stat day with a TD and a couple of huge passes to Trey Metoyer.

Kendal Thompson with a TD pass. He just floated one up and David Smith just ran right underneath it past two defenders into the endzone. Really good connection there between those two.

Thompson gets in on the TD act. Now all three QBs have thrown TDs.
