Of course, we'll never know what the coaches think because in their public words it's still a three-way race, and all indications are that it will remain that way into the fall. However, in the eyes of many who were there to observe the scrimmage on Saturday, Rhett Bomar took a step ahead.
Carter Strickland was one of those observers and he writes about it
in the Oklahoman. Despite the coaching staff party line, it seems Chuck Long did get a little transparent when he said of Bomar, “I believe he did”
put pressure on Tommy Grady and Paul Thompson, ... “He’s had two very good consistent scrimmages now. “(The race) is really tight right now.”
