What if Cardale beats Bama and then wins us a National Championship. He would deserve the starting QB spot next year IMO.
But what do you think the chances of him saying forget the starting job I am going to the pros? He is a big QB with a rocket of an arm and after 3 years in college would be eligible. I would not blame him if he would go and we have seen many college players do well in a bowl game to raise their pros stock.
