Good for him getting a degree and education. I'm sure he knows the history quarterbacks that go in the top 5 in the draft. COUGH RYAN LEAF COUGH.

I totally agree with you here. If this decision stands, he is a major idiot. One can always obtain a degree at anytime. However, one only has one chance to be the top overall pick in a NFL Draft. I mean ANYTHING can happen next season. Remember going into this season, Jake Locker was the guaranteed # 1 overall pick,,,but now, he is not even considered a top-10 pick. And that's Millions of dollars lost.


But in reality, I will believe this when the official time has past for players to declare for the draft. But if he does stay, it only proves that even students that go to Stanford can be total Idiots!!

What if he was a mormon or protastant, or any of those religions who believe you should work hard to earn your living, and if you don't you'll go to hell?

Calling him an idiot is kind of ignorant unless you know who he is... Just saying

It's not like getting into Stanford is easy either. Everyone acts like a shot at the NFL is the biggest deal out there. The average NFL career lasts 3.5 years. Ask Jemarcus Russel and Ryan Leaf how the #1 pick turned out for them. Or scores of other #1 draft picks.

There will almost certainly be a rookie wage scale in place IF there is a 2011 season, which greatly mitigates the money he would receive. Having a college degree is never a bad idea, let alone one from Stanford.

If the guy stood to make 50 mil+ guaranteed, maybe, but by all insider accounts that's not at all going even be feasible, they are saying somewhere close to 11 mil. I'd take a Stanford degree over 11 mil any day and twice on Sunday.

The 2011 Draft is the final event on the current CBA calendar. A rookie salary cap could not be instituted prior to event. Even if Luck goes 1st in the 2012 draft, this decision is likely going to cost him 10-15 million guaranteed, and potentially an additional 40 million over the terms of the contract.

I just hope the Bengals dont have too bad of a year in 2011.
