Looks like Stanford's football team may be in luck for another season.
Even though Stanford University quarterback and Heisman Trophy runner-up, Andrew Luck, was projected by many to be the first quarterback taken in this years NFL draft, he has decided to continue playing with the Cardinal for at least another season while he finishes his degree.
While many may be baffled by his decision to wait another year to earn millions, we think he's doing something pretty smart.
Luck said in a Stanford news release:
"I am committed to earning my degree in architectural design from Stanford University and am on track to accomplish this at the completion of the spring quarter of 2012."
Luck seems to be putting his eduction first, which is a good decision, considering one unlucky injury could ruin his career.
ESPN reported that the Carolina Panthers said they would take the quarterback with their first pick.
NFL rules require that underclassmen declare early whether they intend to enter the draft. January 15 is their deadline.
