It was his best decision because it was the one that he made. Regardless of what could have been or what was the reasoning behind that decision, it was his to make.
I totally understand where you are coming from.. but sometimes we can get too sensational with this stuff.. the kid flat out isn't benefiting himself in any way by staying in school.
now we can glorify "his" decision to go back to school, but in the end, he's not doing himself any favors and only makes for a great movie where he and all his teammates win the championship in the end.. (but he can't, cause they are leaving, and most likely, so is his coach and the entire coaching staff)
again, I get it.. it's his decision, and only his to make. and because of that, no one can tell him different.. but the discussion will still exist on why it's such a bad idea for him to make that decision..
Go back and read my post before yours and I will say something similar here also. Saying "I want to finish and get my degree" is a nice way to say.... "college is alot of fun, I love being the king on campus, and you only get to have this life experience onces so I am staying". Its not really or much about getting the degree.
I am not saying I agree with him and am definately more dissapointed not in the decision but because more on how it affected the Panthers.
I agree with the point you're making..
