If Avery saying Williams is unconcerned with who he'll have to compete with for the starting QB job is considered throwing shade, would't Martell choosing Miami and applying for immediate eligibility because he believes he can walk in and start right away be throwing shade at Williams?  Funny part to me is, Williams is younger than Martell so if Williams wins the job Tate's career at Miami ends before it starts.

Did it happen because the other one wasn't 100% though?  Seems plausible that the healthy knee buckled under the pressure of picking up the slack.  Glad it ultimately worked out for Dean, but OSU not wanting to risk his health just to get him on the field wasn't a bad thing at all.

I wonder if Barrow was pressured by OSU trainers/doctors to retire? Was it a scholarship (numbers) issue? Was it that he had lost a step or two following his recovery? If so, is it a case where he still feels like he can play, even if it's not at an OSU level, and can only do that if he transfers out? 

If I had to guess, I'd say its a situation very similar to Jamel Dean where OSU Dr's won't clear him to play and he disagrees.  Best of luck to him whatever happens though.

I guess he's smart in the sense that he came to terms with the fact he's not good enough to play here.  Because if he were good enough, he wouldn't be afraid to compete with someone who may or may not be eligible this season.  Though, if he's not good enough to play here then he's not good enough to play in the NFL so his transfer criteria should have been the school best qualified to prepare him for the job market.  Hopefully he found that in Miami.

Why was it a smart move at this point?  He's been learning the offense for 2 years, and by his accounts has been understanding and running it well.  Ryan Day is considered one of the best QB mentors in CFB.  OSU puts players in the league at a rate higher than almost anyone.  Why was running away from the QB competition a smart move, personally or businesswise?

If all that is true, why was Tathan spouting off his mouth on Twitter that he was destined to be the starter here?  There's no evidence anyone was promised the starting role, which imo is Tathan's problem.  He felt after being on the team for those 2 years he was going to be handed the spot vacated by Haskins.  He was told he'd have to earn it, and he doesn't think he can against Fields.

However, which part of their previous 3 games was you not impressed on with? 

All of them?  Oklahoma's D may be the worst in the country, Auburn lost to Ms State and TN while that UGA D had no answer for the sensational Sam Ehlinger.  Curious why Gattis would be leaving Bama with the OC spot open if he was really that good.  Bama in 2018 was a product of a pretty weak schedule.
