Finley's Life has been a Whirlwind

This is a well written article about a guy who got little press in his time at Texas.  Football aside, I bet I could count on my hands the number of people on this blog that knew he had one child, let alone two.  Knowing that also makes a bit more sense out of his decision to go pro.  I know TEs don't have as big of an impact on the game as do quarterbacks or running backs, but I feel like Finley's decision to go pro this year is akin to if VY had decided to bolt for the NFL after his first Rose Bowl performance.  He had a breakout season, but his talent at the college level has yet to be fully showcased.  

Maybe its because I thought that Finley would be the GO TO pass catcher this coming year if he had stayed, and that his size and speed would make him a perfect decoy for the WRs if need be, but I sure am upset that he left.  NFL bucks will go a long way towards keeping him and his family financially secure, and I wish him the best of luck.  I'm just unsure of whether or not it would have been worth it for him to stay one more year and really blow it up on the college level before he started playing with the big boys.
