Montee Did the right thing

You had better stay in college buddy. I am a big Badger fan of course living here just north of Madison but look at every other running back to ever come out of Wisconsin, most of which had better numbers than Ball. John Clay is the only current Badger running back in the NFL and he is only in the NFL due to the injury suffered by Rashard Mendenhall. I doubt he will make it off the practice squad next year barring another injury. Ron Dayne was the most prolific runner ever in the Badger state,Dayne's career rushing total remains an NCAA record. When yardage from bowl games is included, (under the current NCAA rules, a running back attempting to break Dayne's record would play twelve games each season and be allowed to count yards gained in any conference championship games or any bowl game in the official totals) he amassed 7,125 yards. He shares the record for most 200-yard rushing games with Ricky Williams and Marcus Allen, with twelve. He also holds the Big Ten Conference rushing and total touchdowns record, with 71, and is one of five players in NCAA history to rush for over a thousand yards in each of his four seasons.Dayne was selected with the 11th pick of the 2000 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. He lasted eight years in the NFL an amassed an amazing 3,722 yards rushing with 28 touchdowns. I strongly suggest staying in Wisconsin finishing your education at UW and have a backup plan for your life besides the NFL because even if you make it the odds are not in your favor, I am not trying to be a hater and wish you luck in life whatever your decision maybe.

UPDATE: He's a Badger for 2012
