Heisman hasn't consumed Bradford's life

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- His Oklahoma teammates made him do the Heisman pose earlier this season in anticipation of winning college football's top individual honor.

Sam Bradford didn't mind, actually reveling in sharing his honor with the teammates who helped make it possible.

And the good-natured grief continued after he came back after winning the trophy.

"Once I got back to Norman, all the guys gave me a hard time about it," Bradford said.

After returning from the Heisman presentation last month, Bradford's life quickly turned pretty typical as his team prepares for Thursday's FedEX Bowl Championship Series title game against Florida.

"I've gotten back to my normal routine," Bradford said. "I finished school and got back into practice. It was back to normal pretty quickly for me."

Winning the Heisman was fun, but Bradford said it hasn't been an all-consuming part of his life, either. On Saturday, he was hard-pressed to even remember where it's currently located.

"It's at my parents' house," Bradford said, chuckling. "And to be honest, I don't even know where they have it."
