Sooner named top scholar/athlete
« on: December 10, 2015, 10:02:09 AM »
Oklahoma center Ty Darlington thought he had no shot at the Campbell Trophy, not with fellow finalist Montana defensive end Derek Crittenden, who has a 4.0 GPA in chemistry and is a Rhodes Scholarship finalist. “I ain’t that smart,” Darlington said. But Darlington and his little ol’ 3.91 GPA in arts & sciences won the award -- given to the top scholar-athlete in college football by the National Football Foundation -- and its $25,000 postgraduate scholarship Tuesday. In his acceptance speech, Darlington said his mother had taught him to “love Jesus, love the Sooners and hate all shades of orange.” I think Syracuse and Florida got caught in that Texas/Oklahoma State crossfire.

On a related note...Baker Mayfield is banging a smoking hot brunette that goes to OSU. Hopefully he'll clean up her genepool enough to produce only Sooner offspring.

Well maybe the fact that he graduated in 2.5 years swayed the committee.

I'm glad a Sooner won, and it is impressive he graduated so quickly. On the other hand a 3.91 in "arts and sciences" vs a 4.0 in Chemistry....I smell hijinks.

I guess you are unaware that at OU all of the science departments, including chemistry, is under the Arts & Sciences College.
