ESPN “College GameDay” analyst Lee Corso says Oklahoma was the best team he saw in person in the 2007 season and if freshman quarterback Sam Bradford hadn’t gotten injured against Texas Tech, the Sooners would have reached the BCS final game.
Corso and fellow analyst Kirk Herbstreit were high on the Sooners at the end of the season, picking them to win a mythical eight-team playoff that aired on ESPN’s “SportsCenter.”
“In my opinion, Oklahoma with Sam Bradford, was the best all-around team I saw last season,” Corso said in a telephone call. “The only other team I saw up there with them was Oregon with Dennis Dixon. But those two quarterbacks got hurt and they lost big games without them. I think Oklahoma would have outscored Texas Tech and got to the (BCS) championship game. I picked LSU to play Oklahoma for the national title, and I got half of it right.”
