this makes 0 sense. his head coach is leaving and his stock is at an all time high. This dude must dread going to Carolina
..I understand the importance and value of a degree, especially from a educational institution such as Stanford..but andrew luck is a f**king retard for chosing to return and not enter the nfl draft this year, for many reasons....number 1. his team will not be the same(KEY players and quite possibly the coach will be gone when he returns) 2. he will be losing 40-60 milli due to the new nfl rookie pay scale that they will start enforcing in the 2012 season and beyond 3. WHO THE f**k KNOWS WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN ANOTHER YEAR?, none of us do..only god does. So why in the f**k would he risk getting injured, or just simply having a medicore/terrible season? if he doesn't keep up his performance and come out of next year as a shoe-in for the number 1 draft pick, he will in essence be losing more money than he stood to lose even if he was the number 1 pick w/the new salary for rookies....simply put it's an incredibly dumbass decision. If you know what your future holds, in terms of what career path you wish to take..why do you need an architectural degree? Just don't be an idiot with your money, like all those other pro atheletes who made millions upon millions in their career and a few years after retirement have nothing to show for it..(ex nba and current D league player antoine walker for example)..As far as I know Andrew Luck comes from a good family. His father played pro football. For god sakes he's going to an ivy league school. So i know for a fact he's not stupid enough to run through all the money he's projected to make in the NFL. If he stays healthy and continues to play great football, he will be set for LIFE once he leaves the nfl..so simply put there is no reason whatsoever for him to pursue a architectural degree...He must really love it @ stanford and his folks must really be in his ear about how important it is to get a college degree, especially when he's on the verge of doing so...but no matter how you look @ it the pro's of joining the draft this year heavily outweighs the pro's of returning to stanford and graduating w/a degree..oh well whatever happens to dude, I wish him the best..
