Really? I had no idea Ben R. came out early. Interesting.

SS Laser: Really? The media was all over him for going back and finishing his degree this past off season?

I do recall that talk about the degree stuff but I think I have heard of some players who were no longer eligible to play that just did not quite finish getting degrees in the past. Being at a college 4 or 5 years does not insure a degree does it? Anyway it could have been some type of advanced degree. That kind of stuff does not interest me.

The only significance that fact has for me is that maybe Ben R. is a year younger than those other heralded QB's he came out with if they did not also come out early.
