UCLA's loss, our gain.
Great player. Now the all-time single season receiving leader in CU history with 2 games left to play.
He is just solid. Great speed and really good hands. But I'm most impressed with his maturity. His post game interviews are all about his teammates and not himself.
Any chance he stays?
Less than none.
Umpossible! Odds can't be worse than zero! So, I put 'em at exactly that. ZERO.
That being said, he did say "you never know, I might take graduate classes in African American studies." Sure you will PRich.
Unless he pulls a Andrew Luck
He needs to take the money. He might get injured next year. Will miss him though...best receiver to ever wear black and gold.
There is no reason for him to come back for his 5th year. The guy is a 2nd rounder like Robert Woods in the NFL draft, maybe 1st round pick if he has a good showing at the combine and pro day. We will need Jeff Thomas, Bryce Bobo, Devin Ross and Dunston to step up next year.
No such luck.
it has been fun watching him grow and watching him play. he's a special talent. I won't begrudge it, if he goes pro a year early. it isn't like we're going to be contending for championship next year. he will be missed, but i'm glad for the time he was here. we need about 10 more guys at different positions at his level and we'd be a contender.
Best player since I started following CU religiously. GOAT WR too. He was limping around yesterday and would have had an even better day if Sefo didn't overthrow that long bomb
He damned well better not use his high school for his MNF intro!
No way he does that-he is a passionate Buff for life. I do now believe he should go pro this year even though I stick to my criticism that he is going to have problems in the NFL if he doesn't bulk up more in terms of more physical corners and potentially being a liability blocking at times.
Having said that, there is an outside chance he stays next year. He has implied in recent interviews that his decision may be more affected by how much fight this team has going down the stretch. If he thinks he could contribute to the first bowl season for CU since 2007. I'd say 20% chance?
Or under throw the other.
He's a great player. I've been really impressed with his growth as a leader over the years. He'll be impossible to replace, but I look forward to watching him on Sundays.
Take this for what it is worth
Zimmer during the game last night said he talked to PRich about going pro and that PRich said he isn't sure yet because he might want to go to grad school and play one more year at CU
Like I said...I think he is gone but take it for what its worth
For college players at his skill level, the NFL is the ultimate goal. College is just the audition. He's passed the audition. No reason to stay and risk getting hurt again. I think he's got work to do make it in the NFL, but he's more than ready and will go 2-3 round.
Shudder to think of 2014 without him.
I think Jeff Thomas has a lot of the same physical skills. He's obviously a ways away from being the same kind of player.
Re: Paul Richardson
So you ever notice how guys who are going to the draft declare the day the season is over, hire a "trainer" and a "nutritionist," and by the time the combine comes around they've put on twenty, thirty pounds of "good" football weight?
And you don't think prich will be able to figure that out too?
If he can't figure it out...the agent he ultimately hires when he makes his decision to go pro will do it for him
The smart move is to go IMO. I wouldn't fault him any way he chooses, his life. He's a great player and will be missed.
he has said recently that it will come down to whether or not CU shows him something that makes sticking around worth while. Maybe if they get to 5 wins this year and he knows he can push the team to a bowl the next season. He is a loyal buff, since we brought him and trusted him when UCLA kicked him to the curb. I doubt he stays, but man would next year look a lot better with him lining up wide in the black and gold.
Not included on the Top 10 Semi-Finalist list for the Biletnikoff award:
I think that is BS. Obviously he has been slowed by injuries again this year but he is certainly deserving of top 10. I wonder if he could be motivated to come back and try to win it for his coach who also won it. Would be nice to have that alongside our Heisman! I'd have to think PRich would be a top 3 candidate heading into next season if he did stay.
First step toward any Bilentnikof is working with a QB who can get you the ball. Sefo fits that bill, so he's got that goin' for him.
Can anybody think of any NFL WR who is as skinny as PRich? Man, I am having a hard time coming up with one. (Watching Denver/KC last night, I can't see him taking those hits on a regular basis and surviving.)
And in the League, PRich's speed will be just a bit above average, so with his current size that small advantage will get easily jammed at the LOS.
His choice, like Bahktiari's, but I say one more year of maturity. A private nutritionist can't do much more than CU's S&C staff can.
Because Wood didn't get the ball to PRich ever. Not like he had the highest %catches from Wood (and Sefo) or anything.
Desean Jackson is pretty slight.
That is the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard.
He is hands down better than 7 of the guys on that list.
Odell Beckham? WTF.
Separate names with a comma.
