Kessler Should Stick Around

from Steve Bisheff - Be smart, Cody. Stick around for another year. That’s my advice for Cody Kessler if, as some believe, USC’s junior quarterback is seriously considering leaving for the NFL before his senior season. Kessler apparently has requested an evaluation from the NFL’s College Advisory Committee, looking for details on ...
