Season in Review - Quarterback

Paul Thompson should be known more as the savior of the 2006 football season than the goat of the Fiesta Bowl. Granted he couldn't have picked a worse time to produce his worst performance but without him there wouldn't have been a Fiesta Bowl or Big 12 Championship.

Thompson was the unquestioned leader of this team and they modeled his courage, tenacity, calmness and efficiency. I have nothing but good things to say about Paul Thompson and thank him for the attitude and leadership that he provided.

2007 Preview
The starting quarterback position is wide open next season with three candidates. Sam Bradford will be a redshirt freshman and is the front runner at this point but newcomer Keith Nichol has enrolled for the spring semester and is expected to make a serious push in the spring for the starting job as a true freshman. Junior-to-be Joey Halzle is the long shot going into the spring but he is the only one of the three who has actual game experience.

I don't see the quarterback position being settled this spring. The coaches are going to want to get a long look at Nichol and Bradford and then see how they progress over the summer. Competition breeds success and this will be a competition that lasts well into August.
