    Re: Sam Bradford almost a Cyclone?

    Actually he was almost here. I believe he was going to sign at ISU, but OU offered late and he signed there. Not sure if i am correct, but thats what i heard.

    Just about anyone would be 'almost a cyclone' if OU came offering.

    Re: Sam Bradford almost a Cyclone?

    I followed recruiting a lot more back then, and don't remember recruiting him. Just thought it was kinda interesting.

    Re: Sam Bradford almost a Cyclone?

    He was very close to being our QB. I doubt he would have been what he is.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Sam Bradford almost a Cyclone?

    Makes a lot of sense. We really liked the dual-threat qb's back then also. Barney just couldn't pull it off.

    Re: Sam Bradford almost a Cyclone?

    Wow, he was only a three star recruit? Who would have ever thought?

    Re: Sam Bradford almost a Cyclone?

    Yeah, McCarney thought he had him. But it's not like he was our first pick either...I'm pretty sure that he was in Arnaud's class and he would have come in as the second QB. OU lost a recruit late and offered.

    Re: Sam Bradford almost a Cyclone?

    As I posted earlier I just thought it was kinda interesting. And the fact he was only a 3 star player. For those that are too stupid to figure out the point of the post.

    Re: Sam Bradford almost a Cyclone?

    Yeah, he was an ISU lean before OU offered. One reason to pull for the guy, can't fault him for staying instate.

    Re: Sam Bradford almost a Cyclone?

    He committed to OU when he was a junior in high school. ISU offered and 2 weeks later he committed to OU. He was NEVER an ISU lean or was ever close to signing here. He was OU's first choice at QB.

    Or to start for a Top 5 program.

    Re: Sam Bradford almost a Cyclone?

    So this means he will pretty much blow in the pros and he really isnt all that good. Just because Dmac offered him doesnt mean he was almost here.
