This was the response Aaron Murray gave when he was asked about the likelihood that AJ Green heads to the NFL next season. While I fully expect to enter the 2011 season without AJ Green on the Georgia sidelines, Murray's quote really got me thinking. The threat of an NFL lockout certainly looms large right now. So what happens in January if this lockout appears to be a sure thing?
Do junior players such as AJ Green, Matk Ingram, Ryan Mallett, and others decide to stay in school one more season? At least while they are in school, they have their scholarships to pay for living expenses and they can continue working on their game. But if they go ahead and leave early and the owners lockout the players in March, then what happens? I am not sure how the NFL draft rules work concerning declaring for the draft and hiring an agent, but if there is a lockout, the NCAA may need to make some changes to its policies (wait, this is the NCAA, nevermind.)
What are your thoughts? Do we suddenly pray for a lockout just to get one more year of AJ in Athens?
