    No freaking way. He's going to cost himself millions of dollars.

    Unbelievable. Wonder if this means Harbaugh is staying as well.

    Andrew Luck to Return to Stanford for 2011 Season - Stanford University's Official Athletic Site

    Jan. 6, 2011

    STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford University announced today Andrew Luck, a redshirt sophomore quarterback from Houston, Texas, will not declare for early entry to the 2011 NFL draft as required for underclassmen.

    "I am committed to earning my degree in architectural design from Stanford University and am on track to accomplish this at the completion of the spring quarter of 2012", said Luck.

    Re: Luck said to be returning to Stanford

    I guess that's one way to avoid paying high taxes.

    Jake Locker (from U of WA) did the same thing last year. Cost himself millions.


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).

    Just like Sam Bradford did? I think it actually makes a ton of sense for him to go back this year.

    1) As a QB he isn't likely to shorten the length of his career like say a RB or LB.
    2) The NFL's labor situation and impending lock out. Why would he go to the NFL and sit on the sidelines when he could go back to school and play for Stanford?
    3) The likely resolution of the NFL's labor situation will involve a rookie wage scale, so again he isn't costing himself all that much money in the grand sceme of things.

    The only downside I see is if he were to perform horribly and damage his draft stock, but even then Jake Locker of Washington pretty much did that this year and he is still a top 5 QB prospect.

    Re: Luck said to be returning to Stanford

    I agree - wow. That's tremendous for college football. And for Stanford.
    I will say though that it's different for Luck, from a well-off family, to stay in college, compared to a student-athlete from a poor family. Andrew Luck doesn't have to worry about his personal finances, or that of his parents'.

    Would have to hope so, even bigger mistake if he didnt get a guarantee from Harbaugh that he'd be back before deciding to stay.

    Too many times a player has stayed and gotten injured and lost out on a lot of money. I will never question a player that decides to go pro for this reason, and really think he might be making a mistake by staying. Can always come back later and get that architectural design degree.
