Andrew Luck Staying At Stanford Doesn't Make Carolina Panthers Fans Happy

The Carolina Panthers used a second round pick on QB Jimmy Clausen in 2010 and he was unimpressive much of the year. So when a highly-rated quarterback like Stanford QB Andrew Luck came up for the 2011 NFL draft, the Panthers, who hold the No. 1 pick, were reportedly planning on selecting him.

Of course you heard the news by now that Luck has announced he is staying at Stanford next year. SB Nation's Panthers blog, Cat Scratch Reader, calls the Luck's decision a "serious blow".
While not a surprise in and of itself this is a serious blow both to the Panthers organization, and the morale of a disenfranchised fan-base whose patience was stretched thin during the 2010 season.     
As of now, there's no sure-fire No. 1 pick in the draft right now. The entire field is pretty open. But thinking you're going to be able to select the quarterback of a draft class, and then to have it taken away can be a little rough.
