    I thought Barkely was the best qb in the country this year. I think he will be the favorite for the Heisman but I am not buying that USC will contend next year

    And nevermind all that, thinking of ones self does not necessarily equate to selfish. Shouldn't he do what is best for him, in his opinion? Isn't that up to him? Not you?

    Maybe you want him gone so you don't have to listen to ESPN ride USC's jock all season. Maybe you want him gone so that a potential roadblock to Alabama's next NC is out of the way? Either way, those aren't valid reasons. The kid wants to stay. So what? I'd love to be back in college for another year, especially if I were the big man on campus in Southern California. Sounds incredible. Yes, please.

    I am far from upset that Matt Barkely is going to play another year of football. In all honesty the kid could have another press conference this evening and say he is never going to play football ever again for all I really care.

    I am simply discussing that I feel it is a bad decision and is based solely on the greed to win a heisman trophy, national awards, etc.

    I'm not sure how you can use the quoted section above and see anywhere where I was angry...

    I am more than sure USC will not go undefeated next year in the regular season and will not be in the national championship game with or without Barkely...

    I could care less if Matt Barkely stays at USC for another year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok now that that is settled, I simply think he is making a bad choice. And no it is not selfish to go "get paid" by doing your job...

    Please find a thread where I have begged Trent Richardson to stay at Alabama, or Mark Ingram, or anyone! I was an advocate of Ingram leaving after his junior year FWIW! (Richardson should also go pro IMO btw)

    No one really knows what went into his decision for staying, but I have no reason to doubt that he did what was in his best interest for his future. These are decisions that a lot of us will never have to make and although I do not really care for USC, I find it refreshing when someone stays another year when they could have gone pro and made some money. Sometimes a player can't win for losing I guess.

    Re: Barkely announces he will stay for 2012 season at USC

    here are the teams on their schedule

    Hawaii-not going to lose. Norm Chow is great but Hawaii is not

    @Syracuse- unless USC has trouble in the dome dont expect the Orange to fight

    Oregon- Chip Kelly will have his weakest team to date and is at the Colosseum. he will most likely not prevail

    @ Stanford- Out of Luck book it

    @ Utah - Utah is too weak to take advantage of home field

    Colorado- need I say more

    ASU- too much turmoil

    @ Arizona- I Dont think they have a legit shot

    @ ND- If there was a game that I thought they could lose it would be this one, but I dont think ND has the offense to keep pace with Barkley so I would lean toward USC

    @ Washington- nope leach is not ready

    Cali- maybe closer than what it should be but USC will prevail

    @UCLA- Same city road game I say LA will be painted RED and YELLOW

    PAC12 Champ will probably be in LA against Oregon

    for the record i said they would start out in the preseason top 3. i never said they would finish there.

    I don't like his arrogant, self-centered, prima donna attitude.
    That is precisely why he plays for USCw.
