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?

Yeah, Luck should take advice from a guy who flushed his credibility when he said Denver fleeced Cleveland for when they got Brady Quinn for Payton Hillis and two draft picks. Prisco's a chode.

I love it when neanderthals like Pete Prisco, who are disgraceful and utterly useless in their chosen field, tell others how to run their lives.
I mean who is going to take advice from Pete Prisco? Really, the homeless announcer guy has more cred.

Andrew Luck is smart. He sees the situation he would be going to. Carolina a team without a coach or a clue would draft him. There is a chance he wouldn't even play next year due to a possible lockout. There is even a chance there might not be a draft or if there is, any draftees might not be signed until a specific period. Andrew because of his talent and intelligence has a choice. Prisco can't understand that because he has neither; ergo, has no options but to write for this web site, who inexpicably allow him to peddle his inanity.

So luck returns to school, get a real degree, possibly bags a Heisman and BCS title, then is still a top pick in 2012. Oh, and for those talking about injuries, Bradford stayed, got hurt and still was the #1 pick. The NFL will wait and take a risk on real talent. For those talking about a rookie cap possibly being installed, winning a Heisman, being the #1 pick and a QB, carries a lot of cache with advertisers. Luck could make more off-the-field, then on. Luck knows this because he is bright and informed.

you cant pay any bills with a heisman or a Big Crock of Shit title....Bradford got extremely lucky that he healed well enough to play...he's the exception not the standard

Prisco, you sound like somebody that isn't satisfied with your own situation.  Sex and money isn't everything, and they don't provide long term happiness.  Getting a degree and actually making something of yourself, having your life be about something more than a game.... Sounds to me like Luck is much more mature/intelligent than you.  Considering Luck's age that's pretty pathetic


spoken like a true virgin nerd
sex and money isnt everything...it the only thing

Luck will earn more in one year than the average American will earn over their lifetime.  Even with a job earning over 100K a year it would take you over a decade to earn what Luck will earn in one year after going pro.  Is it a risk that he could get injured and lose it all?  Yes.  But the risk will be there any time he steps on a field.  You can't live your life saying what if.  He loves the game.  He will have a great year at Stanford and burn his image into the minds of another generation of college football fans.  Luck is creating a legacy for himself.  And he's setting himself up to actually do something with his life after football.  I know it's an odd concept.  But there is life after playing football.  Luck will earn plenty of money.  He realizes this and has choosen not to let money control his life.  He will come out of it being a better man because of it, regardless of where he ends up in his football career.

That's why Luck is who he is and Prisco is what he is.

the only time sports is not all about money is if you're a little kid, a woman or an adult not good enough to get paid to play

Prisco sucks

Every ounce of your statement has to do with the financial aspect of a player's status.....PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE RUINING SPORTS...IT DOESNT HAVE TO BE ABOUT THE MONEY....UNLIKE EVERYTHING ELSE IN AMERICA....YOUR A DOLT FOR HAVING THAT AS YOUR RATIONALE...

its people like you that is wrong with college sports thinking you own this kid just because he plays for a team you like...its not about you and college football is all about money....money for everyone except the people who make that money possible

Prisco's thinking represents the worst of college football, the football factory school (like LSU) where it's all about getting the bucks and into the NFL. Andrew Luck, fortunately, has Oliver Luck as a father, not Pete Prisco. Oliver, as a former NFL QB, knows the longevity of the NFL career is the shortest in pro sports, that too many players regret not getting their degree. All of that and one other thing: the playing of QBs that come out early has a history of being less stellar than the QBs that stay in for their fourth year. Will it cost him money up front staying in? Probably. Does he run a risk of a career ending injury? Certainly.
you go to one of these worthless fact corporations to have a better chance at a good job... football is a job, a very high paying job..go get paid and then time spent making money for somebody else while you get screwed might just balance out and maybe in your favour
