LaMichael James Returning To Oregon…For Education?

“I came to the University of Oregon to get a quality education as well as to play football, and feel I have yet to complete that goal,” James stated.

Despite coming in third in the Heisman voting with 1,682 rushing yards this season, James stated the only individual honor he’d like is Academic All-American. With a 3.01 grade point average this past season, he only made the Pac 10’s All-Academic first team.

I’m happy to see this kind of news about a notable player but I can’t help but wonder if his accusation of assault on his ex-girlfriend doesn’t have something to do with his staying in school. In a plea bargain, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor harassment charge. As a result, he was suspended for the first game of the season against a minimal threat school, New Mexico.
