i actually agree with you about fans being perfectly justified in wanting him to come back. i personally am glad he made the decision to go pro. i've been nervous watching him run for a while now, but other people are not wrong to want him back.

And when it ends, he'll be just another jock without a degree. And before anyone argues that he can get a degree after football, tell that to people who don't have a degree. They could go back too, but they don't because of family obligations, etc.

There's no reason to take this risk. If he rehabs back to his old self, the stay-in-school path gives him his degree AND BIG BUCKS when he enters the draft as #1 Heisman Trophy guy.

I agree that a case could be made for jumping at the money now, but his long-term lifestyle is at stake.

Default Re: Spurrier and Lattimore presser 4pm :(

Something tells me he will be picked up by a winning NFL team. One that can afford to use a 3rd round pick (around there) on a guy who might not play at all next season, but one smart enough to invest in Marcus. The risk of ML not working out is heavily overshadowed by the possible reward of an outstanding HB and team player.

He'll rehab with the best in the country and get back to tip top shape (better than he could do while going to class and having other things to occupy his time). Then once he's healed and able to play he can go out there immediately. If he's able to play and get some PT in the very last game of the season ... it's better than any possible scenario he'd have at SC. If he returns he's out of next season no matter what. If he goes pro, he can work and get healthy whenever he does. If he's even able to play a few games. He could show out in those games and maybe get thrown in a trade or pick up a bigger contract.

If he returns to school he's cutting AT LEAST 2 years off his NFL career ... time that his body may not allow him to pick up on the back side of his career.
You said what I think. Thanks.

These same people will also be shocked when Jadeavon leaves next year.

Congrats on the degree Marcus, and best of luck in the NFL.
Honestly....I thought we would have him for four years before his first knee injury. He's just a different breed. Felt like the knee injury last year solidified him leaving early.

I hope everything works out for him. But, if things don't go as well as planned...it would be great if he could come back to USC to finish his degree and be an assistant coach of some sort. We would all welcome him back. He is such a great leader.

I agree, the man's character told me he was the kind of guy that really wanted to play all four years. Before his first knee injury i thought he may stay as well, but after it, I seen it coming.

As for Clowney, well I think anyone with a brain knew when he signed he was only staying 3 years.

I wish him the best no matter what he does. He has earned everything he has achieved.

He has made this University millions more than he has ever received via a football scholarship. Most importantly, he has done it in a way that makes everyone who has any affiliation with us proud. A fantastic football player and a better person. If you got paid a dollar for everyone who has something bad to say about Marcus, you'd be broke.

I don't really know what college player to compare with for both ability and character. Maybe Tebow or Weurffel. An absolute shame for his injuries, but let's hope and pray that the best is yet to come for Marcus.
