    I saw on another message board that he changed his mind called a press conference today and declared for the draft. Has anybody have a link or update on this?

    Minnesota Rusher Barber to Enter NFL Draft Early

    MINNEAPOLIS (Jan. 15) - Minnesota running back Marion Barber III announced Saturday that he will enter the NFL Draft, giving up his final season of eligibility.

    Barber, the school's third-leading career rusher with 3,276 yards, has gained more than 1,000 yards each of the last two seasons. He and Laurence Maroney became the first teammates in Division I-A history to each rush for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons.

    Barber finished with 1,269 yards rushing with 11 touchdowns this past season.

    Before the Gophers played in the Music City Bowl three weeks ago, Barber said he would return in 2005. He then rushed for 187 yards in Minnesota's 20-16 win over Alabama and won the MVP award.
