Landry Jones not trying to do too much
By Richard Durrett
ARLINGTON, Texas -- So far, Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones is doing a nice job of calmly looking for receivers on short routes and not forcing things. Despite a furious tempo -- as usual -- from both teams, when Jones passes he's content to take whatever A&M is giving up short and underneath.
As the second quarter begins, the Sooners will have the ball at the A&M 41-yard line down 7-3 in the game.
Jones is 11-for-13 for 82 yards and really hasn't attempted a deep ball. Give that time, of course. But he's done a nice job of finding open receivers and systematically moving his team down the field.
