Stoops told the story that after Blake Bell’s press conference Saturday, Bell retreated to his locker, and Stoops witnessed a cool sight. Bell received a bear hug from Trevor Knight.
Knight is the quarterback who beat out Bell in August, and Bell is the quarterback who drew the start against Tulsa after Knight first was ineffective and then injured against West Virginia. You know the rest. Bell played sensationally and clearly reclaimed the job.
Stoops was proud of Knight’s reaction in the locker room.
“Blake’s a great example of, yes, persevering,” Stoops said, but then he offered up the bear hug story and seemed downright proud of his players. “There isn’t one trying to undercut the other guy.” (The Oklahoman)
