Andrew Luck to remain at Stanford

Andrew Luck was a lock with the No. 1 overall pick to the Carolina Panthers. One problem: he had to leave school first, and it turns out he's not going to do that.

Stanford announced on Thursday afternoon that the redshirt sophomore would remain in school for the next season.

"I'm committed to earning my degree in architectural design and am on track to accomplish this at the completion of the spring of '12," Luck said via the school.

This raises all sorts of questions involving the future of Jim Harbaugh as a coach, the future of the Carolina Panthers at quarterback, and how it will shake up the NFL Draft.

People will question how much Luck is sacrificing by staying in school, but Sam Bradford did the same thing two years ago, and things worked out fairly well for him. Additionally, the labor situation creates a rather nasty little problem for potential draftees. If Luck were picked by the Panthers, he wouldn't see one dime of money until a new collective bargaining agreement was reached. Is that guaranteed to be handled by even the beginning of next season? Of course not. That would also mean that Luck might not see the football field until a few weeks before the season begins.

The Panthers reportedly would take Luck first overall, but that's not a guarantee either, which means that a big-time trade up into the top spot could land the quarterback in an entirely untenable situation, depending on who acquired the pick.

Andrew Luck to remain at Stanford

Not only that the kid does not want to play for Carolina. When he does comeout whenever he'll pull an Elway and refuse to play with the team that drafts him. He will say I want to play for a West Coast team so tems will be forced to work out trades . It will be a mess. Carolina has no chance to get Luck.
You are stupid.  There is NO CHANCE Luck is going to choose the team he plays for in what's about to become the "new nfl".   Their new agreement will include a rookie salary cap.  Bad teams drafting at number 1 or 2 will easily be able to afford that pick and they won't let it go.

To trade for the top pick in the draft that's limited in salary would cost a good team moving up 5 or 10 spots or more half their future.  That's not going to happen.

Luck is an idiot if that's the reason he's not coming out....

He has a right to stay in school but for the fools saying his degree is in architectural engineering and not psychology, most architects (not the famous ones who head up companies) eek out less than $100,000 per year. Compare this with #1 draft pick numbers and its no contest. Now if he said I love architecture and don't want to pursue football, then by all means follow your dreams. I love college and want to stay ... then great  but beware the Jake Locker situation and hope it doesn't happen to you.BUT next year some other horrible team maybe even Carolina still will pick him and he may have slid in the draft, gotten injured.

Andrew Luck to remain at Stanford

I'd love to defend Jimmy Clausen since he started for the Panthers, but man... the team as a whole is indefensible.
  • 52.5 completion percent...  ouch
  • 23.0 pass attempts per game... well at least he didn't throw as much as Peyton Manning
  • 1558 yards passing... that would be good yardage... for a running back
  • 3 TD passes... say no more
  • 9 INTs... that doesn't seem too bad, til you look at his body of work for the year
  • 58.4 rating... there's nothing I can say about that.
Despite all this, I can't blame Andrew Luck for staying at Stanford.  He gets his degree and gets a good paying job without taking a snap in the NFL.  There's nothing wrong with getting more money, but it's not like he's in dire need of money like some other big name college athletes regardless of their sport.

Andrew Luck to remain at Stanford

On the one hand you have:
1. Palo Alto, great city
2. Northern California...excellent
3. Stanford coeds--beautiful, athletic, bright
4. Architectural degree and a great future beyond football
5. College life, growning up on your own schedule
On the other hand:
1. Huh?
2. The Panthers?
3. Collective bargaining issues

For a smart kid like Luck, it looks like a no brainer for a guy with a great brain.

Un-Lucky, errrr.

Yeah, when his knee gets all blown out like Paulie D's haircut next season against ECU, we'll see how smart this move is. You'd think that 2 years at Stanford would put some smarts in this kid. I guess the hoods at Florida and Florida State are smarter than him. Let's see how much he is laughing when Jim Horrible leaves and he is getting pounded like a fluff girl next season.

Paulie D, blowouts, all blown put.
