  • Barkley's Decision

    Per ESPN, Barkley is announcing his decision on whether to go pro or stay at 4 PM eastern time today. Fingers crossed for good news

    I'd have to imagine he's coming back if he's making a special announcement for it?

      I think he'll do very well in the NFL.

        Why the hell would he have a press conference for to announce he's coming back to school? That makes no sense.

            Special announcement to tell everyone your staying in school is really stupid. Andrew Luck put out a one sentence statement saying he was staying in school.

                Just as simple to put up a one sentence statement saying your going pro. Holding a press conference is stupid in inself no one cares. My opinion is that he's going to announce he's staying.

                  Leinart did it...

                  TJ McDonald did it as well just yesterday.

                    Just usually its big news when there is a press conference. What would be bigger news? Him leaving or him staying? If we can figure that out then I think we figure out his decision. I hope he goes but I think he's staying too.

                      These kids kill me that they feel they deserve a press conference to announce if they are going to the NFL or not.

                        I don't see any reason for him to stay. Personally, I'd go and wouldn't waste another year. Although I'm sure the womenz are lovely.

                            He gone stay. IMO

                            I see him as the type of kid who's not worried about the money and wants to leave USC on a good note after the sanctions and all that.

                              Let's hope he does the Mark Sanchez thing and declares...I dont want to see him ever again, even if Kalil isn't protecting his blind side

                                Yeah, I still have nightmares about "Barkley to Woods" and "Barkley to Lee." Hoping he takes his talents to South Beach...or Washington.

                                  Was also a huge mistake for him. He's a guaranteed 1st round pick if he declares.

                                    I'll take him on my 'skins...He or RG3 would be absolutely lovely!

                                      Love him or hate him...he is a heck of a player and seems like a good kid. That being said...I hope he is gone from $c.

                                        I hope he stays and we beat him next year and Kiffin has no excuses as to why they lost... even though he'd make one up anyway.

                                          I think he ends up staying.

                                          Best of luck. He seems like a good kid who has his stuff together.
                                          He's been described as having poor coverage skills with below average instincts and issues with tackling. Picture a safety slightly better than Sergio Brown.

                                              I think the bottom line is that if you're going to declare you do it like Kalil and everyone else does and just make a statement. If you're going to stay, PR boy Kiffin has you do a press conference to talk about how USC is sooooooooo great. TJ mcdonald having a press conference was a total joke because the guy was, at best, a 4thteam round pick. Only reason he had one is because its a PR move.

                                                Not feeling good about this one guys. I've been exchanging texts with my friend at HH and she told me that she thinks they're getting an early Christmas present and I should watch the presser, and her last text, when I told her I couldn't watch it, she said she'd DVR it for me.

                                                He's coming back IMO, and that EFFING SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I seriously can't hear about their greatness for another effing year +. Kiffin was supposed to be exposed next year, and now we'll have to wait another year. Sigh...

                                                  Really don't want to see him pump-faking our linebackers again next year.

                                                    The fact that TJ McDonald and Matt Barkley met earlier this week does not bode well. A friend close to the program also said that his girlfriend his due to graduate next year so he might wait for her as well.

                                                                Here is the thing. Nobody knows anything and nothing has been leaked out. He could go or he could stay but the way it has been laid out right before Christmas, the feeling around HH, the Heisman trophies in the background w/ a Christmas tree, the meeting with TJ McDonald says they are getting an early Christmas present. All the USC players seem to think he is coming back. Also a friend told me that Kalil has not yet hired an agent and if Barkley comes back that it might sway him back. I highly doubt that would be the case but you never know. Barkley coming back and they are preseason #1. He leaves and they are top 10.

                                                                        Would love to see McShay and Tim Kirkjian in a cage match. It would likely be a pillow fight, but they are both useless. I hope Barkley goes for the obvious Condoms would be worse reason, but also it would put another player at a position the Pats don't need in the draft. This would leave an additional option for them to choose from in a position they need. Of course, Belicheck will likely trade down out of the first round anyway.

Luck at least did it in a classy way. Think I might start organizing a pressed for myself announcing I have zero ambition of playing in the NFL
