I'm a little late to this discussion, but I totally agree with Cody - I think Cody Campbell's ride far outshined JB's in the short-go and should have took the event win.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I think before the beginning of each year, the PBR picks who they want to see take the buckle at the end of the year, and then they make it happen. Last year, it was apparent that it was Travis Briscoe, but then he threw a wrench in their plan by getting injured and being out for half the year. I think this year's PBR pick is either JB or Travis - it's a little early in the season yet for me to get a real bead on it, but it's one of them.
