Andrew Luck's staying in school.

He's going to turn down $50 million of guaranteed money to play for one more year at the school which has brought him up as a player, and given him an all-important education.

It's funny, because if you're Andrew Luck, this would be the year to get out of college.

Reportedly, Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh is getting talked to by everyone except the Church of Scientology to be its leader, and the odds are on that he'll walk.

Also, there's the fact that Luck's offensive line is mostly going. His running backs aren't as threatening.

The Universities of Oregon and Southern California are still pulling in big-time recruits, meaning the Pac-10 is going to be even more competitive than last year.

But Luck should be OK. The guy's got a cannon. He looks like the second coming of John Elway on the field. And he can run a bit too.
