scgamecocks1984 has hatched from the shell
Default Marcus Lattimore

Those of you saying Lattimore is declaring for the draft.....please stop with the allegations. I happen to be very good friends with Marcus Lattimores family, and they said that Marcus Lattimore himself has said nothing about going pro.They have asked that until you hear something from him yourself to not be spreading rumors about this. No one elaborated any further so to the best of our knowledge he is still planning on applying for medical redshirt and returning to South Carolina football team in 2014!

Thanks, Spurs Up, and Stay Cocky!

Why send a messenger to Cockytalk and not just get in touch with the reporters who started up the rumors in the first place?

I don't know why I believed the rumors in the first place. It makes sense that he wouldn't really be thinking much about something like that right now. He is probably only thinking about getting his degree and healing up. He doesn't seem like someone who would quickly make such an important decision like that. He's got plenty of time.

I know what you mean but "plenty of time" for NFL running backs is measured in single digits of years, and generally the number of years is inversely proportional to the amount of injuries. And when you get to millions of dollars per year, well, "plenty of time" doesn't seem so clear. After thinking about what I'd in his situation (lol), I think it makes most sense for him to go pro.

1. He gains probably 2 years of pay (even working a middle class job that's still substantial -and the NFL isn't a lower middle class job LOL).

2. He rehabs with a professional team, which again isn't an insignificant point.

3. He can focus completely on physical therapy and not have to worry about class/homework/etc.

4. He's guaranteed a shot in the NFL. If he comes back and plays for USC in 2 years, and JUST HAPPENS to have a freak accident on his 4th rush or something....he's done. Period. Sucks to think that way but he's more likely to have a career ender now than he was to start the season. Remember the saying about a bird in the hand....

Too long, didn't read: Don't make posts that say stupid stuff like "he isn't the type of person to go pro" because all you're really saying is "he isn't the type of person to make a smart decision" or "I think he's being selfish by going to the NFL." Obviously it'll be awesome if he stays. USC fans would let him hang around until he's 80 if it was allowed. But more realistically, he shouldn't.

Not sure why this dude keeps posting. Every thread he's posted has been full of incorrect info and him attempting to act as if he has some kind of inside connections that it is very apparent he doesn't have.

He must be a glutton for punishment.

Not sure why this was aimed at Cockytalkers, as if we are the ones spreading rumors. And by the way, although you claim to be friends with Marcus and family, do they hold you in the same regard, or are you like a nosey neighbor?

Yep. Be very skeptical of people claiming insider info.

You are correct. You have to use your redshirt year first, then if you want an extra sixth year because of injuries, you can apply for it after all your eligibility is used up. This is according to NCAA bylaws. What is so hard to understand?


I don't think Marcus will be at USC for six years, though.
