Default Barkley to stay at USC

Our plan is working perfectly. Give Tebow a full year after a full offseason to see if this year was a fluke. If it was, we get Barkley. If not, Tebow is our HOF QBOF.

Goodness, people.

The "draft a QB" stuff is over for the forseeable future.

Enjoy this run to the playoffs and the momentum the team is building for the future under the QB that we have.

...


As for Barkley...stupid decision. Then again the guy goes to USC, so he can't be that intelligent to begin with.

If Tebow tanks next year and the Broncos go 2-14, we should grab Barkley.If not, then we'll be drafting late. I already want Tyrann Mathieu NEXT year.

I'd really like to see some more of Julius Thomas these final games because I don't want to draft a TE. In the draft THIS year, lets go LG, ILB, RB, OLB.

I like what he's doing. Enjoying the college ride, quite possibly positioning himself as next year's #1, and yeah, ready to take USC on a badass revenge tour. What they got seems ridiculously unfair after the Ohio St wristslap. USC lose 30 total schollies, osu 9? And three years of no bowl to one?

I'd love to see him in a Broncos' uni.

Good decision.

Finish school, be the big man on campus, revenge tour, national ship, and then #1 pick.

Great decision

Yup. I think Barkley, if things continue, will be the #1 overall in 2013.

This team is on the upswing.

They will go into camp with confidence and purpose.

We'll make solid offseason acquisitions and the team will be favored to win the AFC West.

Dude, we need another, younger, Champ Bailey more than anything.

We should make a move for Awesome-munga.

Smart move. He could end up with a Heisman, a national championship, and the #1 pick next year. The receivers coming up on the Trojans next year could be the best ever, led by Woods and Lee. I can see why Barkley doesn't want to leave. They got Ted Gilmore from Nebraska as receivers coach and they're already kicking ass in the commitments department (http://usc.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1310080) even stealing a highly touted DE from UCLA and getting a five star Olineman in Jordan Simmons.

Barkley grew up in Newport Beach and comes from a very wealthy family, so there's no external pressure to leave for monetary reasons. Not like a lot of kids that want to buy Mamma a new house.

Well, in that case, USC is like a giant trust fund playground. He may never leave.

You wouldn't know it by the mock drafts I've seen, but there has also been zero indication that RG3 has budged on his plans to attend law school next year and play at Baylor for a Sr season. This QB draft might be thinner than has been anticipated all year.

Right, because the dollar figure is all that counts. Not what coaches, administrators, and university presidents tried to shovel under the rug. As always, the coverup is worse than the crime, particularly in osu's case. Smith and Gee should be out on their asses. I'm sure you know all details of each case, and who knew what when, and the exact dollars involved, and who received them.

Sorry but the dollar amount does matter.

Anyone else think it's weird the way these guys hold press conferences just to announce they're staying at school.

The Tebow flaming out next season is done with. He's been better and better every game with his passing and decision making. Even though it was a loss, last game against the Pats was widely called his best passing performance yet. He's our long term QB for the forseeable future.

It's crazy that we've gone from one of the worst teams in the league to now making a playoff push and only being a couple players away from a championship potentially. I guess a good QB and a fired up Defense really can swing a team's odds that quickly.

I'd say it's a good move by Barkley, he's played his whole college career without a shot at the national championship let alone even a bowl game. Next year their team is going to be fired up and scary with Barkley as the focus.

This is absolutely the right move for him, I think he would work out really well but I think a lot of teams would have second thoughts when going over his game tape, he has a lot room for improvement and I think getting out the Andrew Luck and RGIII class is solid. If he has a good year and shows improved reads and footwork he should be the consensus number 1 next year.
