Luck to Stay at Stanford
So reports ESPN: Andrew Luck staying at Stanford
"I am committed to earning my degree in architectural design from Stanford University and am on track to accomplish this at the completion of the spring quarter of 2012," Luck said in a statement.
If that is what he wants to do, it is certainly his right and I wish him well. Certainly the college professor in me applauds his decision to finish his education.
However, he was basically a lock for the #1 overall pick (and if he didn’t want to play for Carolina, there is always the Eli Manning/John Elway model to pursue), and it is impossible to be a in a better position than that (there is nowhere to go but down, just ask Matt Leinart). Further, the new CBA may put a rookie cap into place. As such, I am puzzled by the move.
