H/T to Barking Carnival
Reports from his father and his former high school coach are that Texas Longhorn linebacker Sergio Kindle is returning for his senior season. It seems he wishes to abuse the Oklahoma Sooners one more time and then make a run for a national title.
In a related story, Sooner quarterback Sam Bradford has added another entry to his “Why I should leave for the NFL” column.
Don’t worry, Sam. The winters in Detroit aren’t nearly as bad as they say.
After injury plagued freshman and sophomore years, The 6′ 4″, 239 pound Kindle had a fantastic junior season, registering 53 tackles (14 for losses) and 10 sacks. He is not currently projected as a first-round pick.
By returning, Kindle becomes a leading contender for the Lombardi and Nagurski awards that teammate Brian Orakpo claimed this year.
