He said he hant anything more to prove, and a return to make a run at the Heisman did not interest him. Commentators at the game did say he needed to work on his blocking skills.
he said all that before the Rose Bowl game. He's for sure gone. He also said something along the lines of leaving so his brother (Walter) could play, which as Illini fans we know won't happen.
