Eye Black Challenger -Sam Bradford says farewell

You can tell more about a person in how they cope with adversity, than how they celebrate victory. Sam Bradford has shown his faith and class in both situations. We salute him for that, and are thankful for his example.

Sam Bradford walked into the interview room after Oklahoma football practice Monday night, leaned against a wall, and then looked to the floor when coach Bob Stoops introduced him as "an incredible example of what you want to be."

In what amounted to his farewell press conference, Bradford went out the same way he came in. The past 3 1/2 years, he has been as respected within his program for his humility as his talent, a surgeon's precision that made for 15 Sooner records and the 2008 Heisman Trophy. ...

No," he shot back. "Absolutely 100 percent no regrets."

He said later in the session: "Considering this is where I grew up and this is where I dreamed about playing, to put this in the past is extremely tough. I've been blessed to be here. The past 3 1/2 years have been 3 1/2 of the best years of my life. I wouldn't trade a day of it."
