I think Barkley is making a tremendous mistake. There's always a risk of a serious injury, on any play.
There's also a risk of scouts and GM's picking him apart, finding flaws that aren't really there.
Whether it's a la Leinart, Brady Quinn, or Brian Brohm for example. Those guy's all had their stocks peak a year before they were in the draft.
A small part of me admires Barkley for staying, and staying loyal to the school (unlike 95% of basketball players).
But most of me thinks he's foolish, and scared to enter the real world, and is choosing the easy way out.... again, the college life, especially at SoCal, that's hard to walk away from. What hetero dude wants to leave that?
But they never mention that part when they say they're staying. I'd love to hear someone say it!
