Trojan’s Barkley proves it’s not all about the money

It’s hard to believe, but there is some decency left in college football. USC quarterback Matt Barkley made it official today that he is coming back for his Senior season passing up millions in the QB loving NFL.

All Barkley’s ever wanted, since he could strap on the helmet, was to be a Trojan’s QB. He stood out as a Freshman and, when he could have transferred during the NCAA sanctions, he remained loyal and stood by his beloved program. Critics will say he’s just trying to improve his draft status and win the Heisman. All good points. But he could also come out and get seriously injured. Or maybe he does not put up numbers better than his Junior year. Then he hurts his status. The negatives outweigh the positives for sure but let’s be honest, who would you rather start for, the Cleveland Browns, or the USC Trojans?

One thought on “Trojan’s Barkley proves it’s not all about the money

  1. This must have been a tough decision to make and I think it definitely says something about the guys character even if he turned down his lifelong dream to play quarterback in the NFL for another year. I think if he stays healthy he could be a star quarterback in the NFL undoubtedly and in the second half of the season, IMO, looked better than Andrew Luck. It will be interesting to see how he comes out and plays next year and if he becomes the true Heisman candidate he has the potential to be. Also, you think you could check my blog cuz I’d love to hear what you have to say http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/12/22/people-are-crazy/
