Luck should go

Posted on: January 6, 2011 3:00 pm

Andrew Luck might be a smart student at Stanford, but when it comes to life decisions he is a fool.

What could possibly make him go back to Stanford? He will be the top pick in the April Draft if he were to come out. But Luck said Thursday he would return to Stanford for his redshirt-junior season.

He wants to get his degree.

Hey, lots of unemployed graduates have degrees that mean nothing now. Just look around.  You have a chance to make millions. Why would you risk injury to earn a few more credits toward a degree? You can always go back and get that paper.

College life is fun, but there isn't much more fun than being a millionaire, bachelor quarterback I imagine.

Jake Locker made the decision to go back to Washington for his senior season last year and it probably cost him millions.

There is no degree that can make up that money. OK, so maybe a few. Not many.

Luck has nowhere to go but down. Plus, there could be a rookie wage scale next season.

Way back in October, a high-profile agent insisted to me that Luck would stay in school. I told him was nuts.

I guess I was the nutty one.

Or is it Luck who is truly the nut here?

Luck should go

Worked out fine for Bradford.  He came back, took his shot at a title, fell short, but still drafted #1 overall and still made millions for a better team/organization.  If it was me, I'd take the money and run.  I'm just saying you don't always know about these things...

Luck should go

First! I completely agree, the risk is too high, and besides that the Panthers need him.
