Shinn on game day: Stoops not afraid of double QB offense

NORMAN — Kansas coach Charlie Weis said earlier this week that he'll use two quarterbacks against Oklahoma. Senior Dayne Crist has been starter in the first six games, but redshirt freshman Michael Cummings has seen more action in the last two games.

OU coach Bob Stoops said the duel-quarterback system hasn't changed his team's preparation.

"They're not that much different. I don't see that. When he (Cummings) went in the game the other day it wasn't that much different," Stoops said. "So, not really that big a deal."

Stoops said the nightmare for a defensive coordinator is something akin to what the Sooners had in 1985. The Sooners had a pure drop-back passer in Troy Aikman and a prototypical wishbone quarterback with Jamelle Holieway.

"Then you'd have to prepare two different practices," Stoops said.
