    I think the guy wants to be the number 1 pick and knew Mr. Luck would be in his way in this draft...bad move IMO!

    Smart business decision by the young man.

    Mistake IMHO as well. He'd be a top 15 pick for certain this year. A bad injury or bad year can cost him millions.

    well USC will be a top 3 team in the preseason (not that preseason matters)
    Due to the current workload, the light at the end of the tunnel will be temporarily turned off.

    The PC was purely for Heisman campaign and pre season hype campaign purposes. Kiffin will love nothing more than to give ESPN a "it all started here" moment to talk about all summer and into next season. Smart but cheap feeling that comes with anything associated with Lane Kiffin is all over the PC.

    On that note, I just bought 4 USC ticket reservations for the 2013 BCS championship at $50 each.

    If he was a RB I'd say bad decision but seeing that he's a QB and the type offense USC runs I'd take my chances. It will also help him to have that extra year of maturity before jumping to the NFL as well. There aren't many instances in which an extra year wouldn't benefit a player from a development and maturity standpoint.

    Is USC eligible to go to the BCS next year? I must have missed that.
