History in the Making

When Blake Griffin's National Player of the Year honor "becomes official in early April, it'll mark the first time that a school has produced the Heisman and National Player of the Year winner in the same year," writes FOXSports.com senior college basketball writer Jeff Goodman ('Sooners stars Griffin, Bradford on verge of history').

Goodman quotes Oklahoma State hoopster Obi Muonelo, a childhood friend of both Sam Bradford and Blake Griffin, as saying: "I still can't believe those two guys are going to be the Heisman Trophy winner and the Player of the Year. Who would have ever thought?"
