Who wants Matt Leinert on their pro team? I wouldn't, after his announcement this week that he's staying in college for another year because the atmosphere in college is "more satisfying."

He has no meaningful athletic goals left to achieve in college. He is unlikely to develop much more as a player in college because his team is so good, they aren't even challenged. If he wants to be the best pro player in the game, he won't get there staying in college. He might get hurt, and he'll probably get lazier.

I'm glad he cares about his mental well-being. But greatness doesn't come to those who aren't willing to fight and work for it.
