Matt Barkley should be applauded for returning for his final season at USC, and taking a shot at building on his legacy.
There are still those who will rip him for passing up the NFL's money and risking his health for the Trojans and Lane Kiffin one more season.
So if Barkley has a bad game or USC loses a game, the critics will come at him from about every direction.
Barkley probably doesn't care what anyone has to say about him, but he is one the top guys back in 2012 who will likely face the most scrutiny in college football.
Who are the rest?
