Weixlmann's Tidbits: Sam Bradford Is an Offensive Machine for Sooners

Ben WeixlmannSenior Writer ISeptember 13, 2008

The Oklahoma Sooners haven't scored fewer than 50 points in a game this season.

The key reason to this is quarterback Sam Bradford. The sophomore jinx doesn't apply to this star, because, after a spectacular freshman year, Bradford is putting up insane numbers in his second year as the signal-caller for the Sooners.

In his most recent contest against Tyrone Willingham's Washington Huskies, Bradford tossed the ball around to his receivers to the tune of five touchdowns and 303 yards on 18-for-21 passing. In addition, though, Bradford sneaked into the endzone on a one-yard run at the beginning of the second quarter.

I have to admit that Missouri's Chase Daniel is the best quarterback in the Big 12, but Bradford is a very close second.

Any quarterback that can lead his squad down the field to score 50 points in three straight games deserves a fair amount of credit.

Head coach Bob Stoops can't give enough exemplary comments about Bradford, stating that he is simply amazing.

So far this season, though, despite the fact the Sooners have played an FCS opponent, Cincinnati and Washington are both from a BCS conference.

Scores such as 52-26 and 55-14 are results you would expect if Oklahoma played Chattanooga every weekend, but against the Bearcats and Huskies, it shows that this Sooner squad is legit in every meaning of the word.

Bradford came out in the third quarter at Washington today, but still put up Herculean numbers.

If Mizzou and Daniel stumble, don't be surprised to see Bradford's name high up on the Heisman docket.
