If someone would coach Bradford on taking an open field tackle he wouldn't be in this situation. I mean, he fell right on his shoulder both times...virtually carbon copy plays. Clean hits, both times.

I have been listening to ESPN and several officials say whether Sam comes back to OU or not, he will still be the No. 1 Quarterback pick. He is the No. 1 Quarterback. But, I really do hope that Sam gets well and does not come back. He really had high hopes for his team, and I believe they let him down. He is a great guy and he will be a great NFL Quarterback. We love you Sam.

As much as I despise and detest Chokelahoma (mainly their fans), I hope he gets the surgery and it is successful. He is a good kid and an example for what an NCAA athlete should be.

I, do not, however, feel that he will have a great career in the NFL. He will have to get bigger and stronger because the boys in the League are much faster, bigger and hit harder. Good luck Sam.

JB, have you ever played football in college? You can't orchestrate how you will fall when you are on the run and some dude flying at you hits you head on or from your blindside. This type of hit occurs every single game, some guys get hurt and some don't. You can't coach how to fall when someone hits you. The speed and violence do not allow you to do so. I'm sure your intent is well meant, but it is not plausible by any means. This is not the WWE where moves are choreographed.

Sam is not a very big guy from a body mass/muscular perspective. He does need to add at least 15 pounds to his frame to be able to absorb hits from much larger, faster and violent players in the NFL.

Sam will announce today that he is getting the surgery. Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure. He is a world class surgeon and will produce great results helping Sam achieve his goal of heading in to the NFL. I hate Overrated University, but like Sam and wish him well. Hope he gets bigger and stronger.

When I looked at the Sooner Sports website, I see that this is Sam Bradford's 4th school year at OU and he is still a Junior.

He must be taking just enough credit hours per semester to be considered a full-time student.

If he is still a walk-on like he was in the fall of 2006, that means he's not there on an athletic scholarship, he should just finish his education and get his degree in Finance, his major.

Anyone who is 21 years old and will be 22 on November 8, 2009 is NOT A KID! Sam Bradford is not a boy.

Everyone who posts needs to make sure they express their deep hatred for OU. It is very important to express your anger for a school. Just let it out.

you dont think it might be possible to simply drop back rather than roll right where you do have a blind side? and it just so happens to be on the side of the shoulder you have already injured. there are precautions that could have been taken to help prevent this injury. plus Bradford cant take a hit>

I hope Sam hasnt done any real damage to his shoulder. Get well Sam! And, for the rankings, I guess it has come back around to bite us in the rear. We have 3 losses by a total of 5points and end up dead last in the top 25? I still say we are a top 10 team. If L Jones would have known he was the starter from day 1 they would b undefeated. This true freshman had to come in and live up to Bradfords stats. He had no time to mentally prepare for the road he just went down.

Bradford had a good run, won a Heisman, but now needs to focus on getting well and then see if he can still play....If not maybe he'll set up his booth by Billy Sims at the fair and peddle his pic for $20 a shot *LOL*

JAD, please get your facts straight. Sam was recruited to play football at OU on an athletic scholarship. Sam was never a walk-on. He remains on that athletic scholarship as of this writing. Everyone who is granted an athletic scholarship has five years to complete their degree, but four years to compete in their chosen sport. Sam was red-shirted his first year which means he attended classes and participated in football drills, but was not available to play in a game. Sam is a smart cookie and is on schedule to recieve his degree in finance in December of this year. He has one year of eligibility remaining if he chooses to come back. Should he earn his degree and wants to come back, then he will have one semester of football wherein he can work on his graduate studies. I hope that he gets the surgery and goes on to have a successful career. Many players attend summer classes which keeps them ahead of their scheduled graduation dates and as such only have to take 1 or 2 classes their last semester of eligibility.

Eugene, I understand your thinking, but disagree with it. The game is very fast. Sam very well could line up and drop back as you state, however, once you have people blitzing and coverage tightens, it is an anything goes environment. I have had this same injury, a bruised AC joint and it is quite painful. It does take a while to heal, depending on the person. What precautions could have prevented this? He dropped back, was making his checkdowns and the corner blitz nailed him. It was a breakdown in a blocking assignment in both cases-BYU and Texas. He should not have come back and clearly his shoulder was ultra suseptible to reinjury. I have to laugh when people say that he should learn how to fall. Until you are out there, you can't fathom how fast and violent the game is and how many times the players don't have control of how they land/fall...I do agree, Sam can't take a hit and needs to build his musculature so that it does not happen again.
