    I’m glad for his sake that he stayed in school. My guess is that he was all set to go unless Meyer promised him he would start next year. He probably got confirmation from Meyer after he had already scheduled the press conference. I don’t have an opinion on how he would have fared in the NFL had he declared because 3 games is not enough data for me to project a position as complex as QB to the NFL. It would have been fun to watch where he was drafted and follow his NFL career. It would have made a great data point for future draft analysis.

    Good decision, young man! Play your heart out and stay healthy. If you’re as good as advertised this year, you’ll be even better next year. Good stuff from the giant who killed Jack!
