THOMPSON FOR BOMAR:
Paul Thompson has impressed his teammates and coaches since taking over the quarterbacking position vacated when Rhett Bomar was dismissed from the team for accepting money for work he did not perform. Thompson has moved from wide receiver. A backup the previous three seasons, Thompson had won the starting job outright last fall but was supplanted by Bomar after the Sooners lost to TCU in Thompson’s first career start. In his career, Thompson has completed 42 of 73 passes for 428 yards. He caught 11 passes for 106 yards after moving to receiver last season.
