Why would Luck NOT come out?

Recommended Posts

Lets look at the possible reasons he would decide to stay.

He knows he is going to be #1 and more than likely will start from day 1. What would make him decide to risk his future with one more year of college ball?

From what I have read on this board and elsewhere, his biggest reason for staying in school would be to finish his four years and earn his degree in Architecture.

It is called spring semester--you can do both!!

Getting drafted by the Panthers could be the #1 reason. (As much as I hate to admit) Lot of questions about the coaching staff, the OL is bad and will he get along with Smitty?

If he is that good, then what difference would it make? Its not like he would be drafted by the Patriots if he waits a year. If he has a good season at Stanford next year, he will be drafted by a team on the bottom.

Chances are if he comes out next year or the year after, a team that has been worse year in and year out than Carolina would be on the clock. He looks at our roster and sees youth with talent at many key positions. Carolina has nowhere to go but up with the right off-season moves.

I do not believe that the Panthers are the reason he won't come out. If that was the case I think he would demand a trade. Plus, we're honestly one of the better teams of the last few years to be drafting #1.

We have great backs, a decent OL (would be better IMO if it was healthy), a star receiver and two young guns who have both shown they can make plays.

A new coach is not all that rare if you're coming out as #1.

I think that there are a few things that are issues with Luck coming out:

1) Wanting to finish his degree.

2) Concern over the lockout, which falls into two categories:

-Not wanting to miss a year of football

-Not wanting to be forced into a starting role on a team when he only gets the playbook close to the season due to a short offseason because of the lockout.

3) Loyalty to Harbaugh and wanting to continue being coached by him at Stanford.

Top picks go to bad teams. Nothing will change that next year. The good thing is...the Panthers are not a bad team.

yeah, but Detriot fans told themselves that for years. I agree with you....but I know not everyone sees Carolina with tons of talent and youth ready to explode. They see a team w/ some RBs and a middle LB. The rest is a big question mark.....

I mean Carolina could just as easily settle into years of sucking instead of just having 1 down year and then jumping back into the mix. We don't view that....others could.
