Sam Bradford's Heisman Case: Numbers Are Everything

Gage ArnoldCorrespondent IDecember 13, 2008

This is my third of three articles on Heisman candidates Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford, and Tim Tebow. I will be stating in first person their cases to win the Heisman Trophy, including why they should, what they have done this year, as well as their best accomplishment of this season.

Hello College Football fans, coaches, and writers. 

The season is finally over and bowl season is upon us. I am currently one of the finalists for the Heisman Trophy Award and I am going to state why I should receive this great honor.

First, I really want to state how grateful I am just to be considered along with my fellow competitors. Tim and Colt are amazing players and have done great things this season with their teams and I will still be great friends with both of these guys after the award is given.

But enough with praising these jokers. It's time to give it up for the man who demonstrated what it truly means to be a Heisman winner. I gave you, the voters, exactly what you wanted. Every game we were in was a shootout and we entertained everyone with our high-flying act.

My stats completely obliterate all of my opponents. My stats make Tim Tebow look like Tim Thomas and Colt McCoy look like The Unreal McCoy. Let's face it, everyone loves the deep pass, the 300-yard passing games, and leading the nation in touchdowns. I did every one of these and then some!

I mean are you really going to pick a guy who comes from Texas and has the ball in his hands every single play? Or a supposed tough guy from Florida who can't even beat Ole Miss? It's time to open your eyes, people, and see that I am standing here as the obvious choice for this award.

And to all the Texas lovers who pull out the whole "Well, McCoy beat you head to head and blah blah blah blah," I have one thing to say to you: Do I look like I play defense?

I was an All-State basketball player and a world-class golfer, but I certainly do not play safety. I cannot make my defense stop Texas. They obviously couldn't stop me, and I did all I possibly could do to keep my team in that game. Colt has nothing on me in that regard.

Oh, and how could I forget, my best accomplishment of the year:

My 30-44, 370-yard, four-TD game against our archrival Oklahoma State.

That's right, we clinched our Big 12 Title Berth with a 61-41 victory.

So, just remember when you place your votes, take a look at that stat sheet and your answer will be right there. I deserve to be your Heisman winner.
