Bradford shutting it down?
Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford suffered a sprain of the AC joint in his throwing shoulder after being pummeled by BYU linebacker Coleby Clausen in this year’s season opener. The former Heisman Trophy winner missed three consecutive games, returning in time to blast Baylor and put himself in the lineup for the Red River Rivalry against Texas. Unfortunately for Bradford and OU fans, he re-injured his shoulder after taking a hit in the first quarter of the matchup with the Longhorns. Bradford is now set to announce that he will shut it down for the season in order to have surgery on his ailing soldier.
SEC officials benched
Controversial calls in Florida’s win over Arkansas two weeks ago have drawn action from SEC officials. A personal foul called on an Arkansas player that put Florida in position to win the game apparently shouldn’t have been called. The University of Arkansas submitted a complaint and the SEC found no evidence that the call should have been made. As a result, the officiating crew will be forced to sit out until they will be reassigned a game on Nov. 14.
