After a somewhat disappointing regular season ending-wise do you think Joe Randle will return or proceed to the NFL. (I'm talking about the Season in general not him)

Really hope he returns, with him we are one of the favorites to win the B12 (Smith is good also but injury-struck atm).

Personally think its 50/50

Wonder if he will/can finish this summer to leave early? Also, he has not been an overactive player in the media dropping hints or anything...Many times, middle of the road draft players drop hints or mention it here and there. I have not heard anything mentioned by JoRan

He honestly would make a huge mistake if he went pro. He need to add more weight. He is sitting around a 5th round pick in my opinion. He did a lot better about his ball handling, now he needs to learn to be more assertive of gaining yards.

He'll be a fantastic pro, IMO. He's got great hands, balance, and he always falls forward/makes something out of nothing. That being said, we're set up better than any other program in the BigXII for next season. I think that'll play a big role in his decision making. But, guys get hurt in college ball, so maybe it's his time. I think he's at least an early 3rd rounder right now.

Agree..4th round at best (and thats being optimistic). situational rb in nfl.. not an everydown back in the nfl...which will drop his stock and value.

Yea, dude plays much bigger than his size/body type might suggest. Seriously, this signature move is being able to take a hit, then stretch his body forward like a spring and always somehow get an extra needed 1 yard or something.

WIth that said though, he is still undersized for a RB (built more like a WR) projected for the NFL , much less a starter, and also doesn't have elite speed or quickness, so its not a surprise that he is still projected around a 3rd-4th rounder.

0% if Gundy leaves, IMO
Agreed. I think that he will have to consider what happened to Marcus Lattimore again. Running backs have a very short lifespan in the NFL, so I say get it while you can. I think he only comes back if Randle believes there can be a run at another Big XII championship and/or a BCS birth for the team. Unfortunately I think we have a lot of work to do still, to be successful at either next year.

He's super young, and made a huge impact here from moment #1, so that plays into it too. He's got potential because he plays like a WR out of the backfield along with his rushing abilities. That's uncommon.
