Here’s the problem with that.  What’s fair market value for likeness?  So someone can buy an autographed picture of Justin Fields for 50k while he’s still at GA to keep him there?  Can Nike promise to contract sometime for their likeness as long as they play B-ball at a Nike school? Can a car dealership give them cars just for their likeness of driving around in them?

This smells like the internships that no one showed up for.  Someone (not naming names or affiliations) forms an LLC just to pay students.  And we don't think this will happen at the HS level?   ING Academy is looking at this.  Why can't a HS Student get paid 30K from Nike with an assurance they would get more if they go to a Nike affiliated team?

Think about what you are hinting at here, Fields > Lawrence.  So are you saying GA doesn't know how to evaluate talent or are you saying GA willingly didn't want to make a Natty run with a guy who is better than the guy who won a Natty?  I just think we need to see the kid play first before we say he is a star.  Apparently he wasn't star enough in the GA staff eyes to start him.  I haven't been following like I should be but has anyone on the team gushed about Fields in their interviews?  From my point of view everything is based on his ratings in H.S.  In the end I hope he is better than everyone hypes him to be but I've seen the hype train before.

This seems like change for the sake of change or someone doesn’t know how to coach them up.  I do think playing a little zone will help the run defense because at least guys can see when the LB shoots the wrong gap or misses a tackle. So those 50 yarders turn into 15 yarders. But I have to see how we implement this to say I like it better or not.  I just hope we have the coaching ability to go back to what we’ve been doing if this change isn’t better.

Ha ha It took me some time to understand why other 513 numbers were long distance.  The 937 cleared that right up................ until I realized it was still less than 15 mins away and still considered long distance.  Crazy times.

Obviously I would prefer to play on a winning team but I’m trying to figure out why he wants to transfer if he is already starting and Honorable mention All B1G.  I would think it’s better to stay and get on the field and get on film instead of coming to a new place where you may not start and hope to get in the rotation.  Unless Someone has given him some “wink wink” assurances.  Please correct me if I am wrong with my thinking.
