What we learned about OU in spring

NORMAN, Okla. -- With the Red-White spring game in the books, the Sooners have just one non-padded practice left before spring practice is complete.

As Oklahoma gears up for summer workouts, here are 10 things we learned about this team from the spring:

1. Blake Bell is the favorite: Trevor Knight generated buzz running the scout team last fall, and Kendal Thompson did the same this spring with his rapid improvement across the board from last year. But after the spring game, there's no doubt who the favorite is to start the opener against Louisiana-Monroe.
