OU honors Sam Bradford with a statue that looks nothing like Sam Bradford

Last week the University of Oklahoma unveiled a glorious bronze statue to honor the heroic legacy of Sam Bradford.  The trophy will be located in Heisman Park next to statues of other Sooner Heisman Trophy winners.  Here are a couple of pics of Statue Sam that I found on the internet:

Hmmn. If you're going to make a statue of someone in order to honor them, shouldn't that statue kind of resemble the person?  You know, like this or this.  Sure, I'll acknowledge that my greatest accomplishment in sculpting is creating a bowl/ashtray for my Mom in 3rd grade arts and crafts, but this thing looks like some 45-year-old OU fan who's playing football with a bunch of kids and acting as all-time quarterback.  The only thing it's missing is jean shorts.

Seriously, who did OU hire to make this thing?  Greg Burns?  The blind lady from the Lionel Richie "Hello" video?  I would suggest Clark Matthews - he is an OU-hating OSU fan - but he only dabbles in erotica art work.
