Harry Douglas First to Announce That He'll Return

Well, it's a start.

Nice call Doyel. Dipshit.


Junior wide receiver Harry Douglas said after a team meeting with athletic director Tom Jurich that he was definitely coming back for his senior season.

Several media outlets had reported that Douglas, who set a school record for receiving yards in a season, was looking into becoming a possible underclass candidate to enter the NFL Draft. Underclassmen must declare by Jan. 15.

"I'm coming back no matter what," he said. "You are only in college once and my parents don't need the money. I'll be back."

Douglas had 10 catches for 165 yards last week in the Orange Bowl victory over Wake Forest. He finished the season with 1,265 yards, breaking the old mark of 1,213 yards set in 2004 by J.R. Russell.

Quarterback Brian Brohm and running back Michael Bush are still undecided about their status, while wide receiver Mario Urrutia said last week before the Orange Bowl that he was "definitely believed" that he was staying for another year.

Douglas also helped set an Orange Bowl record for most times
one announcer has referred to a player's ability to "glide."

In my eyes, and likely the eyes of many others, Harry was the most valuable Cardinal on the offensive side of the ball this season. His relationship with both Brian and Hunter as well as the way he and Mario Urrutia play off each other, is one of the biggest reasons we're all so excited about 2007.

Also, if you plug his name into the U-S-H-E-R part in the Usher song "Nice and Slow," it totally works.

Thanks Harry, and maybe check if your brother is willing to transfer here to run the point.
