Bradford won't start but ...

Posted on: October 1, 2009 4:00 pm
You can surmise from the wording of the wire story that the door is open for Sam Bradford to play Saturday against Miami.

Most likely, Bob Stoops doesn't want to start Bradform because his Heisman Trophy winner could be targeted by blitzes from Miami trying to take him out early. Just a guess here, but look for Bradford to inserted for one or two series in the first half. If Oklahoma gets way ahead then maybe Bradford plays some more.

As I've said from the beginning, the key to all this is to get Bradford 100 percent for Texas on Oct. 17.

Until then, Stoops can at least look forward to getting valuable experience for Jones, a redshirt freshman.

"It can only help him," Stoops said. "Not only the reps in practice but the time on the field and handling the stress of it all. He's dealt with it great."
