07:38 AM ET 10.14 | To paraphrase a basketball coach -- Rick Pitino during his Celtics days -- Landry Jones isn't walking back through the door for Oklahoma. In three Big 12 games this season, the Sooners have totaled four offensive touchdowns. They survived West Virginia (16-7) and TCU (20-17), but not the Longhorns. In those three games, [Blake Bell] and Trevor Knight have combined to complete 42 of 78 passes for 404 yards. ... What's next? Try Kendal Thompson? Stick with Bell and hope he plays to his Notre Dame level (22 of 30, 232 yards, two touchdowns)? Go back to Knight? The latter isn't likely, since if ever there was a time to do that, it would have been against Texas. ... I don't know what Stoops will do. I do know that neither he nor Josh Heupel sound overly confident in Bell.

Not that it matters....but I'm not too overly confident in BB either...

I would either put TK back in and see what happens (he does need to get experience) or go with KT...but BB sure wasn't it last Sat.

I can see a few overthrows or misses....but Geez. Seemed that every time one of the receivers dropped one, he became more of a basketcase.

It starts with the Band, then filters down to the team.

Boob should cry about the SEC more this week..So he doesnt have to talk about his teams pathetic performance

+1000. The simple act that he is worried about the SEc. Focus on your own team and its failings.

Funny we came into this game wondering if it was Mack's last and leave it questioning Boob Stoops tenure.

Btw, Ohio State had its biggest test to date this past weekend: staying out of the tattoo parlors and off the police blotter.

Oklahoma beats ND by 14. Texas beats OU by 16. Texas beats ND by 30.Yes, I am a voter.

Well...it was a rivalry game...one that there have been times when one came in ranked and the other wasn't and the unranked team won...sort of like Bama/Auburn....LSU/Florida....tOSU/TSUN...at one point USCw/UCLA...

thompson/thomas battle for the job next year

BB all year has looked like Tebow; hits the wide open guy or has the speed guys turn 2 yrd passes to 40 tds

And, how many zone reads did they run? I think I could count on 1 hand.

True dat.

But he sure did a fine job on ND, on the road, NDs D had no answer to OU's passing on the perimeters.
