Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford came across as modest and confident – an unpretension regular guy with a wry smile and curly black hair – as he answered questions from the print media this morning.
The Sooner press conference was divided between the print and broadcast media. Shortly after talking with the newspaper and magazine guys, he and three others in the Oklahoma offense took the stage in from of the TV cameras.
Bradford had high praise for the Gator defense.
“It’s one of the best we’ve seen all year,” he told the print journalists. “We know it’s going to be a challenge. … We are confident in our offense, but we realize we’re going against a very good defense. We need to be as prepared as we can be.”
Bradford, the recent Heisman trophy winner, said he doesn’t have the rock-star status of Gator quarterback Tim Tebow or Texas quarterback Colt McCoy.
“I was talking to Colt,” Bradford said. “He absolutely gets mobbed when he walks to class – but that’s not me.”
Indeed, offensive lineman Jon Cooper said Bradford is just the same after getting back from New York. “He’s just a regular guy,” Cooper said.
When asked if there are any skills Tebow has that Bradford wishes he had, too, the Sooner quarterback said: “I wish I was 240 and could run over people sometimes.”
