Andrew Luck Foresees NFL Lockout in 2011-2012

How else to explain this?

The NFL is ephemeral. An architectural design degree from Stanford is FOREVER.

(In all seriousness, way to go, Andrew! Go Cardinal!)

ESPN would kill itself if the NFL and the NBA both had lockouts in the same year. They've bet the hole damn pot on both leagues and they'd have nothing but college ball left in the autumn.

Dusty Baker said...

Ryan Mallett declares for the draft. I'll always remember his last pass.

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

That was indeed a bummer, Dusty!

Fred's Brim said...

I wouldn't want to wear those shitty Panthers uniforms either

Fred's Brim said...

and Bills, please, please, pleeeeeaaaase don't draft Cam Newton

Mr. Customer said...

Shit, dude. If he wants to trade me straight up for his rookie signing bonus, he can have MY architectural degree.

Steve Sax said...

On the flipside, I'd be okay with giving up a year of my salary to get a year of college back.

Eric Karros said...

Especially a year of Andrew Luck's college experience.

Which I'm guessing differed from mine in at least some ways.

Steve Sax said...

[insert obvious comment to EK here that would reveal information about EK that Sax knows but can't post]

Eric Karros said...

Sax, you must be referring to how I was the starting QB for a Top-5 team and the projected #1 NFL pick in college, but unlike Luck I decided to leave school and enter the draft?

Yeah. Because that's the one obvious difference between my college experience and Andrew Luck's. Everything else was more or less the same.

Dusty Baker said...

I'd like to go back to college, but do it the Rodney Dangerfield way.

Mr. Customer said...

If you throw a party and Oingo Boingo shows up, I want in.

DEAD MAN'S PARTY BISHES!!

And I'd like to welcome back Bushwick Bill to FB's avi.

In other news, Pete Carroll feels Andrew Luck is making a huge mistake by not entering the draft (so he could trade up and take him in the first round).

Fred's Brim said...

I hope somebody can help me straighten out my Longfellow

rbnlaw said...

Ahhhh yeahhh.

Holy shit! I can't imagine majoring in architecture AND playing football. Kid must have no spare time. Godspeed, Mr. Luck...still can't bring myself to root for Stanford, though.

Mr. Customer said...

@EM

Well, I don't believe it's the "I live in the studio 28 2/3 hours a day" kind of architecture program, but still.

Mr. Customer said...

I did have I few professors that I felt would have benefited from a horse-collar tackle during crits, though.
