Scrimmage Notes and Highlights

New, 2 comments

Well, because its football and not baseball the Sooners went on with their scheduled scrimmage tonight in front of a small crowd of people who were willing to sit in the rain. Once again Sooner Vision gives us some highlights. DeMarco Murray showed amazing potential once again averaging 11.6 yards per carry. The offensive line also showed the potential that has them ranked among the nation's best. Defensively Nic Harris was everywhere!

I know, I know you want to know about the quarterbacks. Here's my opinion. Sam Bradford's four touchdowns put him ahead of the pack while Keith Nichol and Joey Halzle struggled in the rain and with dropped passes. I would say that come Monday, as game preparations begin, Bradford has the best shot at getting the majority of the reps.

Here are the official scrimmage stats.

Bradford: 12-17-130, 4 TDs
Nichol: 5-16-82, 1 TD
