I can't imagine the decision you have to make to either take the NFL money or have the pleasure of playing for Bama just one more season. It basically comes down to playing about 4 more months of Bama football one more time in your life or taking the money.
I wish I could sit here and say it is a no brainer I would play for Bama one more season instead of taking the money but I don't have that decision.
Vince Lombardi after being asked what it felt like to be the greatest football team in the world just after winning the '66 Super Bowl.-- "I don't know, we haven't played Alabama yet."
He's a guy that grew up dreaming about playing QB at USC. He's done it and he's from a pretty well off family. I'm sure they will take out a nice insurance policy on him too. Not really that hard of a decision to make. If he played at any other school other than his dream school I'm guessing he would be going pro.
Really like revisiting threads like this. Barkley should have skipped this season, and USCe definitely went in the tank. 6 losses was spot on.
