Staying put?

November 28th, 2012

It's still early, of course, and there are a lot of factors that still could come into play, but as of now, cornerback/returner Mike Edwards is leaning toward returning for his senior season in 2013.

"It might be the best thing, not only for me but for my family," Edwards said.

Edwards, who has two sons, said he would like to earn a bachelor's degree. He also said he could benefit from another college season.

Edwards will not make a final decision until after he receives a draft-prediction assessment from an NFL panel.

The funniest thing with all of the conference shifting and big TV contracts is, while it will be healthy for the bank accounts, it won't necessarily improve viewership.

There can never be an all-star conference because somebody has to be at the bottom. Look at the Avengers. Not everyone can be Thor. Somebody has to be the Black Widow.

Also , what makes sports compelling is the unscripted drama. There's going to be some great story — an orphan quarterback who has to support three siblings; a running back who was home-schooled — that will capture viewers. You can't force spontaneity.
