STILLWATER — Nothing rattled Sam Bradford for nearly four hours Saturday evening. Blitzing defenders? No problem. National championship pressures? Big 12 title game questions? Ever-changing defenses? No worries. Teeth-rattling, somersault-inducing hits? Little league stuff, he says. No doubt you’ve already marveled about it, discussed it, maybe even YouTubed it. It is Bradford’s Heisman highlight. It is The Play. His team leading by only four points and his offense facing a long third-and-goal Saturday night, the Oklahoma quarterback scrambled right and headed down the sideline. Nearing the goal line, he dove. A couple of Oklahoma State defenders did the same. The collision sent Bradford heels over head. He cartwheeled through the air and landed on his belly just short of the goal line. That dive will be part of Bradford lore for years to come. Less than 24 hours after the game, footage of the flip had already been posted on YouTube and viewed thousands of times. One even dubbed Bradford with a new nickname — “Superman Sam.” “It was interesting,” he said sheepishly of the dive. “It reminds me of a play I had in little league.” No biggie, huh? Truth is, this was bigger than big. It was the moment in the game that likely won Bradford the Heisman Trophy. “To be honest, I really don’t even care,” he said of winning the little bronze statue. “All I know is that I gave our team a chance to play in Kansas City next week.” Did he ever. Bradford orchestrated the Sooners’ 61-41 victory over the Cowboys, catapulting OU over Texas in the BCS standings, breaking the Big 12 South’s three-way tie and punching the Sooners’ ticket for the conference championship game. Bradford threw for 370 yards and four touchdowns while rewriting the Sooner record books yet again. He broke Josh Heupel’s single-season record with 4,082 passing yards and Jason White’s career record with 82 touchdown passes. And so the legend grows. ““He will be in New York come picking day,” Sooner tailback Chris Brown said. Bradford’s invitation to the Heisman ceremony has yet to be extended, but it’s only a formality. He is already on the guest list for college football’s big awards show in Orlando, and he’s becoming something of a postgame regular with ESPN’s GameDay crew. As Bradford sat on the show’s set Saturday night, chants of “Heisman Trophy” echoed around the emptying stadium. All of it has to be a little surreal. “A little bit,” Bradford admitted, “but I think the biggest thing these past two weeks is the way our team’s played. I couldn’t be prouder of going out there and playing with those guys.” Bradford has become their spokesman. He is the unassuming superstar, the team player, the guy who would rather tout his offensive linemen than his completion percentage. Bradford has become a sought-after commodity. Interviews. Autographs. Face-of-the-program duties. Yet, he is still the guy taking more notes in meetings and watching more video in preparation than anyone else on the team. He’s still intense during the week and wired on game day. Then again, this is what Bradford dreamt about as a kid. “Getting to play for Oklahoma is one thing,” he said, “but getting to play for Oklahoma and having the possibility to win a Big 12 championship and then maybe even a national championship ... it’s like a dream come true.” Bradford and the Sooners took another big step toward realizing those dreams this weekend. And when all was said and done, Bradford finally emerged from the Sooner locker room and walked across the Gallagher-Iba Arena lobby around midnight. The fans gathered around the team buses hooted and hollered when he stepped out the doors, but Bradford never broke stride. He just kept going down the steps, around a corner and into the Oklahoma night.
