Never ceases to amaze that some people celebrate another's lack of success when they have no personal accomplishments to celebrate. 

While Martel may not have secured a starting spot, he's already accomplished more than the vast majority of posters on here. 

I wish him well because he is pursuing his goal.

Separate thread at least avoids all the BS drama that fills the recruiting thread. Just saying...

Good take. Playing defense is something most freshmen have to learn. When Deshaun Thomas arrived Matta literally had a coach on his hip during practices moving him

This brainiac is Maurice Clarett's cousin/friend of the family. He was also one of his inner circle of advisors along with Jim Brown. We all know how that worked out.

No. The "entitlement culture" of which you speak applies equally to fandom. The kid was recruited, in all likelihood, with a promise of a pathway to being the QB after others before him moved on. He wasn't promised the position but certainly was led to believe he would have a shot. Then Ohio State brings in someone from the outside who clearly has been ID'd as the presumptive starter. 

I doubt many, if any, wouldn't start looking for a new job if they were passed over for a promotion at work in favor of an outsider. 

The name-calling has no place. It simply reflects the entitlement mentality that is all too often exhibited here.

You really mean that it affords an opportunity for a young man to do something that he really wants to do, right? Like actually play college football and not be a backup his entire period of eligibility, right? At least I hope so. We are NOT entitled to force kids to stay here when circumstances have changed! His life. Not ours.
