11:44 AM ET 04.13 | Doug Marrone began his Syracuse career with a one-year quarterback, and it appears Scott Shafer will do the same. Drew Allen, a senior at Oklahoma with one year of eligibility remaining, will transfer to Syracuse. And it seems he will follow in the footsteps of Greg Paulus, who played one year of quarterback for the Orange after four years of college basketball at Duke. "It is the toughest decision of my life just because of the uniqueness of the situation," Allen told The Post-Standard. "Coming out of high school, I was basically deciding where I was going to go for the next four or five years of my life. With this, it was a decision that would span just a matter of months -- a one-year deal. "So it's been a long process, and I'm really excited that it's come down to me going to Syracuse."

So who's the QB-in-waiting for the Sooners? Landry Jones has gone to the NFL. Was Drew Allen found wanting as the field general for the Land Thieves? What say you on this development, D2?

According to what I've read, Kendall Thompson looks the best. Doesn't mean he will be the starter, tho.

Bell beat out Allen last spring in the spring game going something like 13-16 and a TD. Allen saw the writing on the wall and bailed.

HOWEVER....from what I'm hearing, the QB is not Bell's yet and, as JM says, I'm also hearing Thompson is looking very good.

BB seems to do very well in the Spring Game and, I guessing here, is a very good practice player.

Hoping he can settle and become more mature and consistent...but not holding much hope.
