Making it easier for the 296k, at the expense of what is justice, moral, and right for the 30... we are better then that!
True... Half the NBAs top ten drafts pick every year are out of the league in 6 years... but they're financially set for life. NFL will never willingly change the system that works for them more them it does CFB. But one day fairness will prevail, and a court will make them explain why/how this discriminatory policy is fair for the student.
Why is it always to penalize the person with the least opportunity, the player...
It's still new and we already have the #2 player in their class in the portal... in 3 years you will see five star players regularly in the portal... Don't you think Justin H. would have left? If Vincent isn't a clear starter at DT next spring... If a sophomore or freshmen are beaten out by someone in there class, or even a class ahead, not to mention a class behind, they will consider leaving!
Yes, there's a difference... one has rights and the other... not so much!
In what world do you tell a 19 year old, who already thinks he's the best QB ever, who never started a game in college, and who just got to campus 3 months ago, that he is the starting QB at Ohio St. without ever going through fall training camp. Think about it... would any of you name him a starter before the fall?
Having played competitive football for over 20 years, sometimes a player can walk in the door physically better then another. I ran the 100 and 200m every year in high school. My senior year, a sophomore, running his first year, was faster and won state. After one practice of watching Art Schlichter throw, Rod Gerald (who was QB of the #1 team in the nation the previous year, going into bowl), told his coach he wanted to play wr because it was clear that he was better. Fields won the Elite 11, which is mostly based on your throwing ability and your QB acumen. Baldwin and Tate, and everyone else, could see it...
Going only by play on video. This kid brings more then Werner and those other SAM LBs named in the article. Some people have a nose for the ball like that safety from the Steelers(Troy P.). He isn't slow, and the play ends when he gets there... and ends with a bang, which the entire team notices, and coaches love.
I typically agree, but what if they have a team that can make the playoffs with POSSIBLE fairly good QB play? In practice they are going to see that he is clearly better then Case and Colt, and maybe learning the playbook quickly, but can be so much better with a year, or half a season of study and just watching and learning... he is the best QB in the room, but if they wait(like KC did) he can be really super good.
Do you believe that… really?
Bingo! It's the learning of the playbook that, at this stage, is vital. When you have second year guys completing it's not a issue. But were halfway through the spring with a backup who has never seen the playbook, and a starter with 2 months.
This kid won the Elite 11! They don't have drills and judge you much on how well you run!
You guarantee it? The portal is open now! You can't guarantee any back-up QB, that feels he is good enough to start won't enter. Tate choose to go compete against 6'3, two 6'4s, and a 6'5, all strong arm QBs who the coaches recruited, and the school seems to like a lot. No more guarantees!
Tate is going to find out that being a new unknown QB in a room with 6’3 thru 6’7 strong arm guys who have a good relationship with the QB coach who recruited them is a little different... Go Bucks!
Not only that... Tate is going to find out that competing against a position room full of 6-4 through 6-7 strong arm QBs, and a coach that has relationship with him, and his family isn't going easy, and sometimes may come down to football politics
I agree that players should be able to go. Looking at it from the schools perspective, shouldn't the school receive something. If a player decides to transfer for no other reason then opportunity, should they be compensated? Should players be penalized at all for the disruption? Should coaches be penalized for deciding, or should schools be compensated?
4.40 is much better then decent...
What is the longest still running record worldwide or nationally, at least 20 years, regardless of amateur or professionalism?
Anyone that's going to play a lot is going to lose their stripe. I think this sets them up to compete for a starting rotation in then fall!
True. The fact is that when you give Clemson/Dabo a top/best QB in college football, they know how to win with them... along with the best DL, they will win NCs...
Trevor L. can not be overrated at this time. If you watch him play for one quarter, it's clear he is a top notch QB, and will be the first player picked whenever he enters the draft. He could be the best college QB we have seen... EVER! …. GO BUCK!
Mr. Haskins, go get your money... !
BS! Haskins may be the first QB drafted and a sure top 10 pick... maybe even 1st pick!
Haskins should leave now... He's a top QB.... go do what's best for YOU! Sure everyone would understand!
Your right! Let's look out for Haskins, and tell him go get ready. Tate, you're up!
