This guy is probably going to be the first pick in the MLB draft. No-way, no-how does he pass up $10 million to come to Lincoln to play football. If he was born and raised in Nebraska, there might be a slight chance. The money is just to great to pass up.
If any underclassman on our football team was projected as the #1 pick in the NFL draft, would anybody expect him to return? No. Then why would we expect Bubba to pass up the same? So, why did he commit to NU? It can't hurt his bargaining power for negotiating his contract. Bubba committing to NU is like buying auto insurance - - you hope to never use it, but, on the off chance you need it, it will be there.
One bad hit and his baseball career is over. Too much to risk.
