Orakpo won the Bronko Mahugrski Award tonight. As they mention in the article, he was pretty domainating against us in the RRS. I think he might have cost Loadholt some major dollars in the draft with that performance.
I knew that he had a great game, but re-reading his line sorta startled me:
"Orakpo had two sacks, four tackles for a loss and a forced fumble against Oklahoma."
No sadness that he is moving on to the NFL and millions of bucks. One of the other candidates was Brandon Spikes, a LB from Florida.
I don't pay that much attention to the awards season, even the Heisman. It will be intersting to see if Orakpo takes the Bednarik also.
