St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford (8) eludes a tackle by Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Quincy …

It's humility week for rookie Sam Bradford.

Not only is he taking the St. Louis Rams' last-minute loss at Tampa Bay hard, his beloved Oklahoma Sooners got knocked off.

The No. 1 pick showed he was a good sport Wednesday, donning a Missouri jersey with his name and college number 14 on the back to his weekly media session.

That helped lighten the mood for at least a while, and Bradford returned volley on questions relating to the Big 12 North leaders, whether Missouri's academic standards were too high for him to consider that school out of college and whether it was one of his worst moments.

Seconds after leaving the session, the jersey came off and the game face came on. Time to get back to work preparing for this week's home game against the Carolina Panthers.
