With USC Trojans quarterback Matt Barkley having himself his own miniature version of Lebron's 'decision' Thursday afternoon, fans, spectators and pundits alike are trying to figure out whether he will stay for one final season of non-NCAA regulated collegiate glory, or declare for the NFL draft and cash in on his talents.
Many past and present Trojans have their own two cents to toss in on this topic, let's take a look at what some of them have to say?
Former Trojan QB Matt Lineart tweeted this earlier Thursday:
So does @MattBarkley stay or does he go??In my opinion, I think he stays!! You heard it first here— Matt Leinart (@MattLeinartQB) December 22, 2011
What about a current player? Here's Marc Tyler's take:
Matt Barkley to decide today.. I have a feeling its going to be a great christmas 4 the trojan fans I say he comes back! Wat do u think?— Marc Tyler (@M_Tyler26) December 22, 2011
I think Marc knows their BCS chances skyrocket if Barkley stays, why wouldn't they want him back?
Here's former Trojan tight end Alex Holmes, with a very bold prediction:
@USC_Athletics I think he stays,and goes down as the greatest Trojan QB ever. Wins Heisman and National Title— Alex Holmes (@Trojan81) December 22, 2011
And what of cornerback Anthony Brown? Well, all he wants is his natty daddy...fact.
My fellow brother matt is coming back So we can win the natty daddy, then leave and be number 1 over all! #fact— AB (@AB_USC) December 22, 2011
