With Bryant a likely top-10 pick in April's NFL draft, it would make sense for him to declare. That's why I think we'll see him picking up the hat of whatever team picks him in April rather than ever wearing the orange and white of Oklahoma State.
So much for a kinder, gentler NCAA. Its decision in this one basically threw the book at Bryant.
Obviously, Bryant knew he made a bad mistake when he admitted to the NCAA that he had about his association with Deion Sanders.
Lying is never a smart thing to do, especially when you are talking with the NCAA. I bet that Bryant's tale will be a cautionary one for athletes everywhere in the future.
And it baffles me that LeGarrette Blount could come back and practice with Oregon while Bryant's college career is over.
