Andrew Luck has decided to stay at Stanford, according to the San Jose Mercury News and ESPN’s Joe Schad. That sobbing you hear is coming from Carolina, which now probably turns to Missouri’s Blaine Gabbert (!) as the No. 1 pick, unless it wants to take a defensive player and hope to finish with the worst record again next year. Now the question becomes: Does this at all impact Jim Harbaugh? Could he possibly get Stanford to pay $5-6 million a year to keep him? Harbaugh made around $3 million this year. Luck’s taking a major risk returning to school, because in recent years, that’s hurt a few QBs (see Matt Leinart and Jake Locker). Luck’s decision is an absolute shocker.
Ohio State’s playoff chances haven’t changed very much.
He’s still pretty good at this.
Savage move by production.
