    What happened? I thought he took his name off the transfer portal.

    You said no loss because he's never been healthy. Well, it may be a big loss if he is now healthy. Getting a ship from bama suggests that not only is he talented, but that he is or they believe he will be healthy enough to be a contributor. Fsu could have really used him if that's the case.

    That's speaking in hypotheticals but what we DO know is that his track record has shown that he's been injury prone. Also, who's to say he'll even be the same player that he was prior to all the injuries anyways?

    So, I'll reiterate my statement. Why is bama giving him a scholarship. The point simply is that you don't know whether this is a loss for the fsu online in the future.. It is certainly a potential loss to an absolute crap unit. I s get that it is a maybe both ways, but suggesting that bama offering him a scholarship is irrelevant is not accurate. It is a clue to how he is expected to be health and performance wise over the next couple years.

    I hear you. You're erroring on the side of if he's healthy and contributing, it's a loss. I'm erroring on the side that since he hasn't been available, losing him isn't a loss. If he's healthy and he can return to his all freshmen form, obvious it's going to be a loss for FSU. Either way, we are/were gonna beat FSU with our without him

    maybe he is going to Bama, because it is the only school that offers a masters in football
