Of all the Quarterback U’s over the years, the latest seems the most unlikely.
In the glory days of the wishbone, Sooners quarterbacks’ arm motion went sideways with a pitch more than forward with a pass.
Meanwhile, different schools took a run at the moniker — Stanford, Brigham Young, Michigan and Miami. But look who’s firing away these days.

The Sooners’ Sam Bradford, along with fellow quarterbacks Colt McCoy of Texas and Florida’s Tim Tebow, will be front and center tonight in New York for sports’ most dramatic individual-award announcement.
