Sanchez’s Side

With all the drama from yesterday, I never got around to offering a little insight into Mark Sanchez’s decision. What stunned people is that he always played the role of the rah-rah guy who loved USC and would never criticize a teammate or coach or say anything bad about USC.
That made people assume he would stay in college as long as possible. But it overshadowed an extremely serious side to Sanchez that wanted to be an NFL quarterback more than anything else. He didn’t want to be the poster boy for USC and King of L.A. He wanted to play pro football. That made his decision easy.
