Sam Bradford is a redshirted sophomore at OU. Not a senior. I'm only a journalism student, but I'm pretty sure fact-checking is a major element of news reporting.

For everyone giving props and consolation to Texas, what about Tech?

Texas Tech had a phenomenal year. The 11-1 season is one for the books in Lubbock. I realize it doesn't mean much to non-tech alumni but I sincerely feel kicked while I am down with all the hate for the program. Such lack of respect.
I could be referring to the BCS, Big 12, Heisman, Maxwell, and O’Brien and such. But really we never cared about that until this year. It just happened to be the year of the three way tie. We aren't whining. But come on, why rub everything in?
Texas gets so much love. They get all this charity attention and press' apologetic favor. Tech is a good school. The kids there are good kids. The team is the best we have had since before I ever went there in the 90s. I only wish that the DJs, reporters, and bloggers would leave the comments to themselves.
It’s not fair that Tech receives the least respect of ANY of the top 10 one loss teams.
You should be ashamed of yourselves.

It must have bee a tough night at the awards for Graham Harrell. He sat there, happy with his Golden Arm award, being chastised by the political and BCS rated agendas about the Heisman, Maxwell, Big 12, Oklahoma letdowns. Seriously, Leach and the rest of the team surely would have still been proud of their season. But you have all the negative about ONE game (yes a very bad loss) and it never ends. Very few have expressed a subjective view on Tech's side. It is such a disgrace to college football that the whole nation can't move passed the Longhorn's point of view.
Give credit to the Red Raiders. They earned every bit of respect and success that any other team that played their hearts out had.
Stop the hate. It’s awfully disgraceful.
