Maybe ruptered a brake line or messed up the master cyclinder !!!!
Try bleeding the brakes first , if not check the brakes lines for a fluid leaks and then have someone push on the brakes and look at where your break fluid goes to see if you notice it pumping fluid

Could be something really simple like the vacuum hose popped off the power brake booster. It is a pretty big 1 inch OD black hose connected to the brake booster. Look just inside engine compartment directly in front of driver. The brake master cylinder is connected to the front of the brake booster and the hose should be nearby.

nah if the boster line came off the pedal would be stiff not go to the floor. but i did recently change my ps line which was connected to the boster line. hmm ill have to check it just incase b/c i did hear what sounded like air coming from under the hood.

yah I agree without vacuum the pedal would be harder to push. All your other symptoms excluding the sound of air from under the hood point to a hydraulic leak or if not, a bad master cylinder.
