Bob Stoops holding off on QB decision until Sugar Bowl

The last thing Bob Stoops wants to do is give Alabama head coach Nick Saban any clue what he has planned for the Sugar Bowl clash between the Crimson Tide and Oklahoma. This is why it is not a shock at all Stoops is opting to hold off as long as possible to announce who the starting quarterback will be for the Sooners in the bowl game next month.

“That will be a game-time decision,” Stoops said Monday during a meeting with the media, according to Tulsa World.

The indecision is a result of Trevor Knight returning from injury and Blake Bell coming off a solid performance in leading Oklahoma to a win over Oklahoma State in Stillwater to close out the regular season. Knight separated his shoulder in the game, which forced Stoops to stick with Bell for the remainder of the game. In that particular game, it paid off.

The quarterback situation has been up in the air for the Sooners all season long, with Stoops holding off on naming his week one starter as long as possible as well. So this is totally normal for Stoops.

Fortunately for Alabama, the quarterback situation is much more clear with AJ McCarron, this year’s Maxwell Award and Davey O’Brien Award winner.

    It really doesn’t matter, they probably won’t score one point in the bloodletting that Bama is going to give them.

    It doesn’t matter who Stoops put as QB as the game will be over by the half. Chokelahoma can’t even beat average teams in bowl games muchless a team like Bama.

    Sooners will be ready. Only one school has played in all 4 BCS games and won three of four BCS bowls
