Bradford lucky to return vs. Miami?
Oklahoma will be lucky to have Sam Bradford back for the Miami game.
That may not be so lucky, though, for the Sooner quarterback.
That’s because it looks like the Hurricanes are for real. Monday night, they went to Florida State and scored a big-time win against their in-state rival. Miami scored 21 points in the fourth quarter, then made a late-game, fourth-down stand to seal the victory.
This isn’t your granddad’s Miami. Heck, it’s not even your dad’s Miami. But this is an improved program.
OU will have its hands full on Oct. 3.
And no position will be in the cross-hairs more than the Sooner offensive line. Miami sacked Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder twice, including one late in the third quarter. It caused a fumble that led to the first of Miami’s three touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
Ponder was also hurried once and intercepted once. The Hurricanes made it a tough night for him.
Think they won’t do the same to Bradford?
Now, I suppose it’s possible that the Sooner offensive line might make some fairly significant strides in the next couple weeks. It could figure out what ailed it Saturday against BYU. It could be as good as Kevin Wilson professed it would be during the preseason.
By the way, after the way the line played Saturday, maybe Wilson should’ve spent less time talking about how good the line would be and instead spent more time actually making it better.
