Would you rather have Blake Bell or David Ash?

SoonerNation.com write Jake Trotter writes that he would rather "roll into the Cotton Bowl with the unknown of Bell versus the known of Texas quarterback David Ash," in a recent piece he an HornsNation's William Wilkerson squared off in (College Football Hot Button Topic of the week - College Football - ESPN). I find it ridiculous, just as everyone else that isn't an OU fan does, that a guy that has played the Tebow role in package plays is supposedly a better qb than David Ash. Hell, even the Heisman Pundit asks the question (http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&ved=0CDwQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fheismanpundit.com%2F2013%2F05%2F01%2Fis-blake-bell-the-top-heisman-dark-horse%2F&ei=TEbsUeaSJ5LkqAHgqYHIAw&usg=AFQjCNGz5YwlxmNJhxoZKaa8c0FtygcdhQ&sig2=4bU6v6hGfjkiAHetfC1_qQ&bvm=bv.49478099,d.aWM) "Is Blake Bell the top Heisman Dark Horse?"


In all seriousness folks, I would roll with Ash over Bell. The proof is in the pudding.


Ash career stats: 3,778 passing yards, 23 td's and 16 picks. Ash has 3 rushing td's.


Bell career stats: 115 passing yards, 0 td's and 1 pick. Bell has 24 rushing td's.


Bell's rushing yardage was not Vince Young-esque, where he consistently gobbled up turf. He averaged around 3.5 yards per and ran most of it out of the wildcat. Career-wise he has only run for 372 yards and he hasn't proven himself to be a guy that can lead you to a quick come from behind victory with his arm.... David Ash has 244 career rushing yards.


I respect Bell's rushing accomplishments but unless you are a true mobile quarterback with some serious skills, I'll take David Ash over Blake Bell any day.

Bobby Stoops said at media days that Blake Bell hasn't been named "the guy" yet. That's the biggest load of crap I have ever hear. Stoops also said that bell has a beautiful deep ball & can throw the deep pass. Bell has like 115 passing yards in 2 years.
