A remember that regardless of what KB does, he graduated.

As far as I'm concerned, football is a secondary effect of the opportunity to attend Clemson.
Kelly attended, put in the hard work, and graduated last May. He will forever be a Clemson man, and his diploma will look largely similar to what mine did half a decade ago and what many of yours look like over Clemson's storied history.
In my opinion, once you graduate as a player your debt to the university is fulfilled... whether thats just being done with football, trying your luck as a grad student somewhere else, or trying to make it in the NFL world as a professional. If KB decides to stay, I will be over the world we have a competent backup for Syracuse that knows what it takes to win. If he leaves tomorrow to transfer, I will be grateful for the wonderful season he helped make last year, and for giving his all in a weird situation with a generational talent, and putting TL in a situation where he could thrive and know its not all on his shoulders as a freshman.
Kelly Bryant is a Clemson man and graduate no matter what, and he has more than paid his dues to the university, at least far more than I ever did.
You are right, deciding to stay would be a selfless decision

and would certainly cement my opinion of him as one of the all time great Clemson leaders. But I will never fault him for thinking that 10-15 years he may wish he had left. I certainly make career decisions with myself and my family in mind.
Every decision he makes from this point is icing. My only point is that any selfless move at this point would be cementing himself in Clemson lore, and not making a selfless decision would not detract from his Clemson career up unto this point... at least in my opinion.
