Who’s Sam Bradford and what’s he doing with Tim Tebow’s award?

They got it right

I think they got this vote right.

I’ve watched a few of Oklahoma’s games this year, and I don’t think I have ever seen such a precision passing game like the Sooners have, and most of it occurs because of the incredible accuracy and decision-making of Bradford.

It also doesn’t hurt that he has the best offensive line and wide receivers of any team in the nation.

Colt McCoy has a strong argument (McCoy beat Bradford head-to-head on a neutral field), but I sincerely believe if Oklahoma and Texas were to play 10 times on a real neutral field (Dallas, Texas, is not neutral), Oklahoma would probably win eight or nine of those games. Everybody can get lucky once in a while.

Tebow also had an incredible stretch after losing to Mississippi against some quality defenses, but the SEC still wasn’t as tough in the past (losing non-conference records against both the ACC and MWC).

All three of these guys were incredible, as was Harrell from Texas Tech. It was hard to have to give it to just one of them.
