Merry Christmas, USC: You’re getting one more year of Matt Barkley
For starters, he’ll open next season as the runaway favorite for the Heisman Trophy, with every USC passing record in his sights after a blistering finish to the 2011 campaign. He’ll succeed Luck as the undisputed No. 1 prospect in the 2013 draft, and enjoy the fruits of being the 21-year-old Face of College Football in Los Angeles.
I take no position on this. As Tim Tebow would say, "I don't know what's in his heart."
Money? The NFL? A Barkley craves not these things.
