It's not a matter of "if." It's going to happen. Prohm's agent would be a fool not to reference it and reference it often. Every offer that gets thrown out will be compared to the Underwood contract, as it rightly should. Pollard's job is to argue that Underwood's contract is an aberration, and not deserved. But even so, Prohm's negotiating position is strengthened by Underwood going to Illinois. He's got much better leverage than he did a week ago, and that's not news to anyone who is involved.
