Since it's rather slow around these parts this time of year, we can talk about this.

Hey, we might not be in the playoffs, but at least our franchise is continuing to show the maturity that the so called experts say he doesn't have.

Good for him. It's always a pleasure to see guys get their degree once they make the jump early.

For someone who is going to be making serious money without "needing" the degree (considering his probable long-term career in the NFL at an elite level) he's definitely making a mature move. I wonder what his "haters" will have to say about him making another positive move?

Hmm. He doesn't really need that when you consider his enormous contract coming in a few years not to mention all his endorsements. I'm reading too far into this but maybe a PR move?

I don't think Cam would go through an entire semester just to appease to the media.

Some guys return to college to get their degree just for the sake of doing so. It's a great accomplishment.

This is good to hear. It gives him less time in the offseason to get better Laughing

I wonder what his major is?

Cam is actually about 30 hours short of a degree in sociology. So it's going to take two semesters. He's getting one out of the way now while he can't do work with the team. Probably will try to finish next year at this time because summer semester isn't an option. As you said, this is definitely isn't a PR move.

The students are "swarming" him already, but they should calm down soon enough.

Im not accusing him of anything just throwing it out there. It definitely looks and sounds good, better than what a lot of other guys around the league would be doing with the extra time so there isn't anything to complain about.

Yeah Laughing Its interesting enough with pro prospects like Mike Glennon, with someone who's already a pro and with the accolades he has, must be crazy.

Do you go to NC state? Have you ever seen Glennon on campus?

I forgot who it is, but someone guy on FF goes to WVU and sees Geno Smith all the time.
