Brohm @ U of L had a damn near #1 slot after winning the Orange Bowl, stayed another year, and UL flat out sucked when Petrino left, now his dumbass is playing for the Bills throwing interceptions all the time. His days are numbered.

Get the money, get a good accountant, and get the degree later if you need it so bad.

So yes, I agree with the group.

I doubt it. A star qb is not usually immature like that.

This won't be the end of Andrew Luck... I'm sure he has the full support of his family for his decision.

If you guys think this kid is dumb and doesn't know something is up... then you are dead ass wrong. I'm sure he has financial advisers and professionals all over his ass telling him the pros and cons of the options he had in front of him.

This kid is a fvcking BEAST... he's got the height, size, and build that is a dime a dozen with QBs in the NFL. 6'4. 235 lbs (FIT, not like most QBs in the NFL). 21 years old.

You'll see him in the NFL eventually and this dude is gonna lead whatever team he ends up on to the Super Bowl.

Tweaked in a good way... he's only got room to improve. He needs to improve his pocket awareness IMO. He's still a developing QB and needs a bit more breeding.

Honestly, if he went into the NFL draft Panthers would have been STUPID not to take him. That's a chance Andrew Luck can't take... if you're worried about him getting injured with a Stanford o-line... imagine him being put up against NFL DE's with a Panthers line backing him.

Difference is he'd have money in the bank if he got injured with Carolina.

Get paid.
Then get a degree.
Plain and simple, you are the number one pick!

Same was said for Peyton... now he's the highest paid player in the NFL.

"One intriguing factor in Luck's decision is the financial reverberations. The N.F.L. is negotiating a new labor agreement with the players union, and both sides have said that a rookie wage scale will be in place that will severely curtail the riches lavished on top picks. That means that contracts like Bradford's $78 million deal are probably a thing of the past.

Oliver Luck, who played in the N.F.L. and worked as an executive in N.F.L. Europe, said the financial risk was not as great as had been reported; some people have estimated the financial risk to be more than $50 million. Luck said those numbers had been exaggerated.

"Both sides believe that there will be some sort of a slotting type system which will reduce in length and volume the deals that top choices get," he said. "That's here this year, next year and two years from now." "
