McCaffrey to skip Stanford's bowl game to prepare for draft

McCaffrey to skip Stanford's bowl game to prepare for draft”

The Stanford University running back announced Monday on Twitter that he'll sit out the Sun Bowl in order to prepare for the 2017 NFL Draft.

The common refrain you'll hear is that McCaffrey "owes it to his teammates" to play in the game, which is a great deflection from the truth that this situation would be avoided entirely if college athletes were compensated for their efforts.

They shouldn't. McCaffrey and Fournette are doing the smart thing.

Of course it would have been fun to see McCaffrey in a Stanford uniform one last time, against a UNC defense that he could have put on a show against. For three years Christian has not only been a great player, but a great teammate as well.

In addition, elite-status loyalty members of both airlines will receive priority check-in and boarding on each company's flights. Soon Virgin America customers will have access to a route network that offers six times more daily flights than before.

Many questioned McCaffrey's loyalty to his team after announcing his decision not to play in the Sun Bowl.

Fournette also will sit out the bowl season, announcing Friday that he would not play in the Citrus Bowl on December 31 against Louisville.

A standout junior linebacker at Notre Dame, Smith a year ago was ranked as high as No. 2 among all National Football League prospects by draft analyst Mel Kiper. That came one season after he set the NCAA single-season record for all-purpose yards at 3,864.

So when Zeke heard the players dealt with injuries, he backtracked pretty quickly.

On Monday, Instagram started rolling out its "Live" video-streaming feature to all iOS and Android platform users in the U.S. The company first released this feature in November to be able to "connect with your friends and followers right now".

The 2016-17 college football bowl schedule is out.

McCaffrey is the second prominent player to make such a decision. Elliott didn't mention McCaffrey by name, and LSU junior running back Leonard Fournette has made the same choice.

Elliott has a unique perspective on the debate considering the circumstances of his final college game, Ohio State's Fiesta Bowl matchup against Notre Dame last season.
