USC QB Matt Barkley may be the star of stars in the college football galaxy, but he's about as normal as students who double as Heisman Trophy candidates get.

ESPN.com's Gene Wojciechowski points out that Barkley is a "refreshing" change of pace in a world where the great majority jumps for instant riches over life experience.

"I'm perfectly content with my college life," says the guy who tore up his winning NFL lotto draft ticket to return to USC for his senior season. "I don't have to pay taxes."

But this isn't about money. If it were, Barkley would be an ex-Trojan right now. Instead, he's starting his first day of 2012 spring practice.

"Financially, it was an easy decision to go," says Barkley. "But sacrifices must be made."

Barkley also had a catch with ESPN's Brock Huard as they discussed the start of spring practice.
