Tate Martell Tweet

Could be his way to telling Fields that Fields won't win the quarterback competition. If so, you have to respect the confidence.

We will see what happens with fields after the bowl game. I expect Haskins to go pro and Fields to come to Ohio state. I believe he would split snaps with Tate worse case.

BuckWylde's picture

How many years did JT wait behind Braxton, until Miller was physically destroyed by being overused as a running back? And how many years did Haskins wait before being unleashed to wreak aerial destruction on the B1G and carry a team on his back to the brink of the playoffs? Historically speaking, great programs build character and patience in great players as they endure the pecking order behind established upperclassmen.

I believe that if Fields opts to buy into one of the  greatest traditions in all of college sports (TOSU), he's gonna fall in line behind an even bigger, badder, hungrier Tate Martell than would have been the case without the humbling growth experience of waiting his turn behind the greatest passer in school history. Martell was a dual-threat beast coming into the program, but now he's a grown-man beast who's poised to show his stuff to the nation and the world.

JT only waited 1 year behind Braxton while he was a true freshman recovering from an ACL injury.

A significant part of thinks Fields and others who transfer so quickly as Freshman/Sophomores need to learn the virtue of patience and not getting what you want when you want it.  At that age it helps to have an adult around you to say those things, but I have a feeling the adults in those kids' lives are not telling them the hard things that they don't want to hear. 

It's one thing for Burrow to transfer after waiting and competing for a few years (catching a bad break injury) - and then in the end seeing his eligibility window collapsing and left.  I think it's another for someone that's just coming off being a true freshman who saw playing time and has 3 more years of eligibility, to bolt.  

HS
BeatMeechigun's picture

I agree in principal , but there’s also cases like Major Applewhite at Texas - a solid QB who would have started at most schools who lost the bulk of his opportunity to Simms.

Real life experience that can build character? Sure.

Worth giving up a chance to be a starter at the right P5  school if you have the talent? No. So I get why they transfer.

HS

Then why did they never through once from the Tate package? 

If Haskins is gone, I hope the best QB wins not the best runner who can through a little.

So what is your point? Fields realized he was going to be stuck behind a good QB for 2 more years and the coach wasn't going to start him b/c the offense was sputtering under Fromm.

Martell is talking smack-that what he does apparently.  Dude is a cross between Tim Tebow and Justin Bieber.......................

Since he has been in an OSU uniform? "Talking smack?" ( in the manner you use the phrase) nah...you are off base by a mile. Hes bitten his tongue more than anything else. Expressing confidence in ones own abilities is the least one can do for him/herself. People who have a goal of making another person think less of themselves, those are evil people.

HS
stxbuck's picture

If you subscribe to the DJ Khaled School of Twitter Confidence, you are talking smack, imo. Different generation, different way of doing it, but you are talking smack. Martell is definitely injecting his $0.02 into a situation-and if if it wasn't "smack":, I doubt his mom or Coach Day would have told him to delete the tweet.....................

HS
Kurt's picture

Yea, I'm suggesting sometimes it's fine to be patient and wait.  You're a freshman in college and your entire career is in front of you!  Look at Haskins, sometimes all you need is one year as a starter to propel you into the first round of the NFL Draft.  He could wait a year until Fromm likely leaves then still have 1 or 2 years as starter or even take a redshirt.

A few beverages on a Friday evening after the last practice of Christmas break probably greased the skids here. It’s not a great look to be overtly combative, but I don’t see a big problem here, yet. I certainly don’t blame Tate for feeling unappreciated, and wanting to assert himself, but some of the things mentioned about following and subtweeting is petty and lame. 

HS
goodlifesean's picture

Yup. I saw a guy today saying he shot puts it. After rewatching his highlights, gotta say he's got a hell of a quick release. Not a lot of wasted motion, which probably is due to wanting to get it out before lineman get their hands up. Some People are out there acting like he was a 3 star from Upper Sandusky we took because we couldn't get a Prototype QB in the class.

Martell's a winner. He's been a winner his entire life, and winners, above all else, are supremely confident. What's more, it seems to me that the kid who patiently waited his turn while he learned from those who came before him instead of bolting at the first sign of shit going sideways isn't the one who elicits maturity concerns.

BornAndBredABuckeye's picture

There were rumors that Tate has concidered transferring multiple times since he's been at OSU, according to another post buried in one of the Fields threads. Not sure how true that is. I wonder how Tate would have reacted if Haskins stayed another year

HS
kmp10's picture

Yep, those rumors did exist... but Martell stuck it out, so whether or not he considered leaving is irrelevant. At some point, a la Joe Burrow, the writing is on the wall and you have no choice but to leave if you want to play, but doing so within your first 11 months on campus with the rumored reason being you didn't get to start as a freshman is a different situation entirely, imo. I want Fields to transfer here, to be clear, because I want the best quarterback room in America... I'm just not convinced that Fields and his height advantage will beat out Tate Martell, a guy who has two years invested into the Buckeye way of doing things and who was an otherworldly recruit himself.

HS
BornAndBredABuckeye's picture

I agree with you. The advantage is in favor of Tate since he's been in the program for so long. I too want the best player on the field so may the best man win. It will be an interesting battle since they seem to have similar styles, unlike the last qbgeddon of Barrett and Jones.

HS
huffdaddy's picture

I put the chances of Tate beating out Fields at about 5%. 

I put the chances of Tate beating out Baldwin at about 40%.

Tate is good. If Tate were going to be a great college QB, OSU wouldn't be pushing for the Fields transfer. Day has watched Tate practice for two years, he knows what the ceiling is.

This has nothing to do with Patterson. Do you think anyone at OSU is giving any thought to ttun right now?  This is clearly about Martell protecting his turf.

Personally, I think Hunter Johnson is vastly overrated, another summer combine wunderkind ala Shane Morris. His HS stats were meh and his teams weren’t any better: 15-16 in his three years as a starter, career 51% completion rate (including 52% as a senior, 55% as a junior, 54% as a soph), only one playoff game, in which his team was blown out 49-13. 5-star QBs usually play for great teams and/or put up gaudy stats and Johnson did neither. He’s a guy who built his resume in camps, combines and 7on7 competitions.

Man...I really wish Tate wouldn't have sent this...If you look at the greatest Warriors in history they go about their business with a quiet confidence. This is like poker. He just had a tell. NEVER let them know you are thinking about them. Show up, bust your ass and shake their hands. It would have been much easier and smarter to leak something like that thru Haskins ( who is close to Fields) to let him know that if he chooses tOSU it won't be a cakewalk. I have watched a TON of film on Tate and the kid is A LOT better than he gets credit for, a LOT. The problem with social media is EVERYONE can see it. Now competitors will see this and know he can get a little rattled. Go watch the Elite 11 documentary and by Tate's own admission his parents had to sit him down in High School and talk to him about his Social Media presence because he had a bad habit of clapping back at anyone that said something disparaging to him on Twitter/Instagram, etc.  

I'm guessing he meant to basically say "if you come here, don't come up here expecting to be handed anything. Bring your A game because I'm going to push your ass to the brink". The way he wrote it though felt more like he was worried. Maybe I am reading into this more than I should but "internal" stuff like this should always be kept INTERNAL.  Tate is a natural born fighter so we will either get the best of Fields or a battle tested bloodied, ready to lead Tate Martell.  We just don't need dissension amongst the ranks in the QB room

First and foremost most of these guys are Uber competitive. This forum act like He Paul Bunyan. 90% of us never seen him play besides some mop up duty and some wildcat stuff. Yes I know people hyped Haskins. I was one of them. What he did against Michigan was game changing. You could see that with Haskins. Zeke was the same way. You could just tell when the opportunity presented itself games over. I haven’t personally seen that in Tate.Being competitive only takes you so far. Talent and physical ability win out. A lot of these guys come from state championship winning teams. They play in football factories. 

We dont realllly know if Fields is coming here or not. We also don’t know if it’s because of playing time. Could it be that him and Kirby don’t get along? Or maybe Kirby promised him something and didn’t come through? Maybe it is playing time.We don’t know.However the whole vibe on this board with what about Tate is at school girl levels. Hopefully Day doesn’t play favorites we seen Two chances at a title slip away with JT playing because of that. People should not discount Baldwin as well. May the best players play. Fields Baldwin Tate or the cheerleaders. Whoever gives team best chance to win.

DEPARTMENT OF 'BETTER CHANCE'

Desk of Literacy

When assuming the author literally means what he says, rationally, the reader starts by assuming the author is [trying to be] 'honest'.

In pursuit of any topic, both sender and receiver... and whosoever partakes... IOW all imperfect participants... degrade the meaning with every succeeding imperfect [i.e. each 'all'] interpretation.

This is not 'chance'.  It is simple math, named something complex by some ego which i appropriate to claim it's 'so hard' i 'never' understand it.

====>EXAMPLE:

Let 1=perfection [the whole]

Let the 'multiplier' represent 'the best'... imperfect interpretation of the present iteration. = 0.99.

1*0.99 =  .99

Et seq 0.99 * 0.99 = 0.98, and so forth with every "new" [LOL] interpretation...

"Settled Science" declares this a "Law" [in science 'truth':  "Determinism"]

This 'proves' by Science and Math [i.e. 'empirically'] the Settled Science of another Law:  "Entropy".

BUT we're not 'done' yet!

What about that "better chance" you started with?

Rationally, Scientifically, "chance" has no "cause"... it just "happens".  That is 'so stupid' it requires Science to 'de-fine' it as:  "Random".

So thanks to our collective brilliance, we 'have' 'the truth' of RANDOM DETERMINISM IN ENTROPY.

QED.

This means, literally, out of our THAR brilliances, we have, you could say logically "no chance at all".  Put another way:  chaos.  And its caring 'n sharing pal, DIE-versity.   Diversity...at University... our ridiculous, foolish situation, as we de-fine it  by ..."professing to be wise".

We need more QBs for depth at the very least. It could be that Fields got to see what Ryan Day has done for Haskins this year, not to mention that every QB he's coached, including Joe Burrow after he left for LSU, have raved about Day.

That and we don't have a QB for the 2019 class, in fact I'm pretty certain Dwan Mathis was more for depth than any of the coaches being sold on him. The coaches have moaned about the lack of quarterback talent in this class all year.

Georgia has been hot on the recruiting trail for a couple years, really ever since Kirby Smart took over, but they've also had a lot of transfers.

Ryan Day also has pointed out how sitting for a couple years really helped Haskins this year, although I will be the first to say Dwayne should've been starting last year. JT Barrett was good, but he was no where close to Haskins' ability as a passer.

I have no clue what Tate Martell is tweeting about, I don't have a Twitter account and I never will because I can't comment in so few words, nor am I into Social media like that anymore, got burned out on Facebook. That said, if Tate Martell is a true competitor, he should welcome Justin Fields to Columbus and the Buckeye Brotherhood. As Ryan Day said, if they have a chance to bolster the roster with much needed QB talent then they will! Day said he wants to always have 4 QBs on the roster, right now we have two plus Chugonov, so I hope Justin Fields comes.

Hell, if Tate Martell has a great season as the starter in 2019, he could be one and done too. The only reason I don't think he would be one and done is his lack of NFL-caliber SIZE. Unfortunately Tate's game won't translate unless he finds a way to really hone his passer skills, only running when he has to.

May the best players choose to be Buckeyes, and may the best QB win. I always thought Urban's downside was his loyalty to upperclassmen, i.e. starting Mike Webber over JK Dobbins, JT Barrett over Haskins, Knox over Davis, etcetera

Esap - interesting tea leaf reading.  Agree the "moaning" abounds - among fans and media alike.  What's misty to me is whether our coaches have been 'moaning'... or the intrepid reporters have OH so appropriately 'moaned' for them.

SB71, your scenario happens all the time and everyday; it’s called real life. D1 football is a business, man!

If I’m not chosen for the promotion, I have two choices, stay and continue to fight/work hard towards the next one, OR leave!  Tate and any other guys have that option too, with the much more relaxed transfer rules that are in effect.

Haik, there was rumblings that he talked about xferring during Fall camp; which was before Haskins blew up on the field.

Martell got quite the reps with the 1s in Fall Camp.  I’d say that act and talk of packages were as much about placating him into not leaving, as it was anything else.

I think it would be great to have Fields on the team. He definantly has talent. Perhaps we would have made the playoffs if Tate was used at critical times this year. Obviously the Purdue game was a glaring example. Tate should have been given a chance at the beginning of the second half to beat the boilers. How about the MSU game. We were quite lucky there. The IU game was similar. Nebraska was scary. Haskin’s threat or lack of his threat to run the ball was a detriment in those games. Tate’s dual threat would have opened up both the running and passing game for us. Too many three and outs. This team on paper was too good not to make the playoffs. I want Tate and Fields on my team. Put them out there and let them compete. Let the cream rise to the top.

Sorry not sorry, QB play was the least of the Bucks’ problem in the Purdue game.  The defense in general, and the LB/DB play specifically, was putrid.

has any one yet asked "What Comes First" in our decision about how to assess any player, let alone one in arguably the key position on the offense?  [I mean the one who by rule, receives the football to start each play, i.e. turns the key to start the engine.]

"HI"... everyone!  ;-{)}

Rather than assessing each player for which is better at a thing, let's just take one if each player and user all their strengths. Would be nice to get a little diversity on the roster, don't you think?

IDK any difference be tween a "little" Die... and more or less Die.

"Take one [of?] each player and use [r] all their strengths?"

Sounds good, but.  Just how do we do that, even for 1 player?  [just look at all the #1's out there... for each 1 spot!]

is this a matter of "just taking"?  I have doubts....   ;-{)}

====as a supervisor of several titles over time, i was 'tasked' with assessing individuals by certain criteria, comparative criteria, and matricies of traits [ranking and ranging based on defined values.  Broadly in several human disciplines [psychosocial, ed. teaching by application of matrices such as Bloom's Taxonomy.

====although that was evermore comepll-icated... it was also very simple... depending on who/what you put first, and whether you deduced...or hunted and pecked by 'experience'....

therefore, "nice" is a holy misleading criteria, for it has 'favor' [bias], but no merit nor meritorious relationship, ergo no equitable standards for comparing.

so, as the saying goes... 'a little bit, goes a long way.'   Where is this 'long way' of a 'little step'?   Off the straight and narrow... into the chasm.... maybe?  I'm trying to answer your question as a fellow traveller, on the road toward... purpose.  IDK any more or less than you do....

Don't get me wrong, I like Tate; but this reminds me a little bit of the Austin Kendall basic defense comment, where people were like "Dude, you stand on the sideline holding a clipboard; who even are you?"

I’d love to see Fields come to OSU.  As a fan of OSU I welcome as much talent on the roster as possible.  But is anybody surprised that Tate isn’t stoked?  Urban raves about Tate at every opportunity.  You have to believe that Tate and the staff have had numerous conversations abotut buying his time.  Earlier this year it was said that Urban would be disappointed if Tate wasn’t frustrated.  It’s first world problems.  Whatever the end result I’ll feel comfortable about the QB situation next year.

Sorry, I can't find it, but that is why I said "think".  I wasn't sure if it was a fact because I read it on a board somewhere. Sorry. I know he signed, but won't announce until Jan 5 and is considered a lean to OU.

I just find it hard to believe that his tweet would be the reason that justin fields isn't coming. He has to understand that tate isn't going to just lay over. Tates a competitor. I will say though, tate has to understand that this is big boy football and u want the best people playing on the field. I really wish tate would have kept that tweet to himself. Hopefully this didn't ruin our chance with him. Fuck me running.

If anything turned fields away on this one, it was tate.  Tate better be ready to BALL come next year.. if He even wins the job..

as a fan I’m kinda pissed that his Twitter fingers cost us an elite player. Idc how much “moxie” you tate fans will back up, this is immature.

I certainly don't know if you're right or wrong, but if, IF, Fields was coming to Ohio State, and then after seeing Martell's tweet decided not to, well, that's pitiful. A player who's supposedly an elite alpha dog deterred by a tweet? C'mon.

Lol at the Tate haters, amazing how quick you fall in love with an outsider. I hope Tate plays unreal next year just to shut you guys up. If anything were to turn a recruit off, look no further than this site during games or after. I sure as hell wouldn't want to play for some of you "fans".

You must not like recruiting new players then... every year must be a bad year for you. You know, since we recruit to replace the guys we recruited in the years before... Who are better than those others in a lot of cases.

No I find it amusing how many are quick to dismiss a current player for someone potentially coming in. I find it funny that next year when Tate is tearing it up, everyone will say "told you so"
I find it funny that should Fields come here and underperform, they'll turn on him.

HS
BUCKAROOTIMESTWO's picture

Fans turn on current players all the time, when said player(s) is playing, and the guy they think should be playing isn’t.  Sorry, nothing being said or done is limited to Tate!

May the best player win the job, as evidenced by Haskins’ play this year!

HS

It's a sport... your ON FIELD production matters. We don't follow Ohio St Football for the player stories. We follow Ohio St Football because the game. What happens on the field matters, the tape matters, the measurables matter. 

The fact of the matter is Justin Fields has the size, the arm strength and the athletsim of DeShaun Watson. Tate is a hellva athlete and if he wins the QB battle with Fields, great. He's the better player at the moment, easy day. 

Having Fields on the team is NOT a bad thing, no matter how you want to cut it. Oh Tate may transfer? Looks like we're in the same spot as before Fields with a more prototypical dual threat quarterback. 

I havent seen anyone "dismiss" Tate. I have seen people want the best possible player they can get, which is Fields and it's not even close. I have seen people want a QB comp (you know like everyone wanted with JT vs Haskins and Haskins vs Burrow). 

Youre being oversensative because other fans want depth and to win but have a different opinion than you.

He has shown a burst while running and a rifle arm... Maybe you didnt watch the game they actually let him throw. I'm all for competition, my money will be on Tate

You mean the 10 for 10 against Rutgers, yeah I saw it. And ?

I wouldn’t exactly call any of those throws rifle throws, but I did see plenty of Haskns’ rifle throws.

BuckeyeRealist, this online persona Martin Anderson is a pretty big troll and don’t let him get under your skin. If you look through his comments, then you’ll realize that the commenter rarely has anything nice to say, and puts down others for their opinions often.

I was on 11W at 4 am on Christmas morning as I couldn’t sleep. Guess I’m a big loser as well ;) Or maybe it was my chemo drugs got me all whacked out and my sleep schedule is all messed up. I don’t say that for sympathy, but rather we all have different reasons for being here at different times and eventually trolls like Martin Anderson are shown the door. You can always help with a downvote for assholes.

Holiday Cheers to you, Buckeye Realist!

Hope things are well and you're doing alright!  

Thanks! Generally I’m better but I’m roughly at my nadir for blood cell counts, so I’m kinda tired. Slept a lot on Christmas (probably because I woke so early, haha). My Chemo was 3 days in hospital on an IV and then I now have pills. So I felt better when I was first released than I do right now. Not unexpected, but still isn’t fun. Worst part is that food doesn’t taste so good, so my Christmas dinner wasn’t as flavorful, and it takes something really strong to taste well, and then it’s not normal.

Anyway, I’m here and happy to be alive! So, I’ll take some of the drawbacks of the chemo. And 11W gives a nice reprieve from other activities, especially when I’m tired and don’t want to move around much.

Not to make you think more about what you're going through (I'm sure it's a constant presence as is) but I appreciate the update.  Keep on keepin' on and kicking some ass!  I have a couple patients right now on chemo and the reports I get are the food thing is one of the more difficult, or at least unexpected, side effects.  Glad to see you on and sending positive vibes up to NoCal for continued recovery!
