Barber, Rac and Jonathan Ford ate waiting to be superstars in this offense. Still, you're crazy if you don't think tre sticking around another year would be huge.

Even after watching Tre blow up in the 2011 Chic-fil-A bowl, I had no idea he had this much potential. Extremely amazed and incredibly, proud.

It is in the best interest of Tre's body for him to leave early. It is in his best interest of his goal to win the heisman for him to stay. As an Auburn fan I want what is best for the team and its players. I can understand the arguement for him to stay for the team's success next year. I can understand the arguement for him to leave because it IS best for his career as a pro to leave. Tre Mason should make his decision based solely on what makes him happy. Personally, I will be happy with whatever he decides to do.

I am more concerned about the staff.  Will there be any attrition?  I doubt Lashlee will get a HC job at 30, though it's always possible a mid-major comes calling.  Garner and Johnson and Grimes probably aren't leaving.  Anyone else?

Running backs do not carry the high value they once did in the NFL. They get hurt too often in the pro game.  Tre will not be drafted I. Round 1. I would guess round 3 or 4. He should stay another year.

What Im saying is, I don't think he'd get any better of a pick if he stayed another year, his stock has to be through the roof after what he did to the last 2 defenses he played.
Agree and like someone has already mentioned....RBs don't have a long shelf life in the NFL and with Tre's size it is probably shorter. Always exceptions to the rule but i would not want Tre staying just to go after a Heisman esp. after winning an SEC and a NC. I would take him saying he wants to come back just for a Heisman with a grain of salt. Yes he wrote it on twitter but that is during the season..emotions are high. After he has had time to think..i hope he does what is best for him and not what Auburn fans want. If he wants to come back and win more championships then cool but i would advise against coming back just for a Heisman.

His father has made a good living but he is NOT swimming in millions. Might want to check that source.

Hearing that G-Rob will likely go pro. Saying he is projected at a 1st rounder. He's more likely to do so than Tre
I am not hearing this. He is a sophomore!!!!  It would be a bloody shame for him to go pro too soon. Just like the bammer O'liners who stayed for their junior year, he will grow and mature. We need to urge him to use his good sense and stay.
It is true though. Robinson is the biggest threat out of anyone to leave early. I would love for all these guys to stay but I'm more concerned about what is best for them and NOT what Auburn fans want.

I  doubt his family wealth has any influence on his decision.  Some parents still expect their children to find their own way and I say that is the biggest gift the parents could give them.

True... but the temptation of the big pay check may not be as tempting if he is used to seeing money...
His dad is NOT a millionare people. Check your sources. His dad isn't P. Diddy....lol. He has done ok but he is not a millionaire. lol.

I hope Tre returns. But if you do not think his stock rose 100pts tonight, you were not paying attention!

The world now knows who Tre Mason is. So do NFL scouts

Most Auburn players who have left early have not fared that well at the next level.  Some never even got the chance.  IMO, Tre and Greg both have the opportunity to break that trend but I would love to see them stay.

He shouldn't. He plays good in our scheme but not sure he will be NFL caliber or durable. I like that Roc Thomas coming in!

CAP said hello last night as well!!! We would all love Tre back but if he gets some positive news about his draft stock, he should go and run now. Running backs don't always have the longest of careers.

If Greg is a first rounder then I say go big boy. Anything less and he needs to stay home another year.

durable? Really....what make you say that? He plays in the toughest, hardest hitting league in all of college football and runs mostly between the tackles and you question his durability.

As much as I would love to see Mason on the back of an AU jersey next year I think he should go pro if he's got a chance. While people say football is a game of inches it is also a game of seconds when it comes to player health. At any second your career can be gone. That's why I support any player at any position from any school going pro at anytime if the got the NFL talent. Tre is a smart kid and he will make the best decision for himself and his future. Also keep in mind if he leaves then it opens a spot for the next kid to step up at RBU and show out.

Just my opinion. He is a smaller back I hope the best either way. Not many 195 pound rbs in the NFL I believe but not sure

Hard to know for RBs...most have a short career in the NFL.....and AU is set up for another good season next year.  Meanwhile, CAP came in for a quick series and showed me that he could be a very adequate replacement for Tre if necessary.    CAP's TD dash up the middle was a thing of beauty.  RBU is back in business.
