Bradford, other stars make strong statement in returning to school

It’s cool to stay in school.
That’s the message that emanated out of Norman, Okla., on Wednesday when Heisman winner Sam Bradford stunned much of the football world by announcing his decision to return to Oklahoma next season.
Coupled with the return of Florida QB Tim Tebow and Texas QB Colt McCoy, both of whom previously announced their intent to put off the NFL, 2009 will mark the first time in history that the top-three Heisman vote-getters all return to the collegiate gridiron the following season.
As an unabashed advocate of the college game over the pros, let me be the first to say: That’s awesome.
