He's still projected to be a 1st round pick in next year's draft, but imagine all the championships he could have won at Alabama, and he still would've ended up a 1st round pick.
The Cal Bears lose their star receiver, Keenan Allen, to knee injury as they prepare to host Washington on Friday

His bro Maynard is the bestest.
Should've gone to Bama. Such a pity, but he will make loads in the pros if he comes back.
Dude got a free ride out on the west coast, so don't feel bad for him.Besides He just just wasn't mentally tuff enough to compete with all the talent that we brought in and are still bringing in.JMO.
If he would have come to Bama as a receiver, he would likely have started over every other receiver we've brought in since. He'd have made a heck of a DB as well.
He wanted to play with his brother, and we were not offering him. Allen would have done just fine at Alabama. Some kids would just as soon play with family (Nkemdiche), as win championships.
Allen will be just fine in the NFL.
That's such a baseless argument. He went where he could play with his brother. Great for him.
I could think of worse situations to be in than to have a full ride to Cal....
I've been to every Cal home game this year and am heading to tonight's game soon, and what's funny is how bad Maynard has regressed from last year. Losing their star player won't really impact Cal's offense, because Maynard can't do the whole "forward pass" thing. Their offense consists of runs that result in losses and screen passes that are either incomplete or result in losses.
They'd probably beat auburn though.
If you believe in yourself & have dedication & pride & never quit you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.
I was going to write out a thoughtful argument about how crazy that statement is, like several others have. Then I saw you username, and that says it all.
I think it is funny that we have had several years to get over the fact that he did not come to bama, yet we still see his name on the board every few months.
How many of you have even been to Northern California? There is more to do in a three hour drive from Berkley than you can do in a ten hour drive from TTown. Not to mention world class wine and certainly elite cuisine. Most people on this boeard would have the time of their lives in a setting like Cal offers. But there are those who think that because a player chooses another schiool then they are idiots.
Not to mention a chance at a degree from Cal, one of the better U around
Would have been a hell of a safety but he is an elite wr
He obviously never really cared about winning a NC--actually not even a PAC-12 championship.
