There has to be more going on than is obvious. You don’t go from being cocky as hell to advertising a transfer that quickly without something changing.
Having just watched the first seawson of QB1., I would take him in a heartbeat. He’s cocky as hell and makes plays. His bigger knock is his height but let the pros worry about that.
There has to be more going on behind the scenes with this, it just doesn’t make any sense for him to bolt now. Apparently Ryan Day is enamored with Fields though and is tight with the private QB coach he uses in Atlanta. He is the one who brokered the move and it has been in the works for some time. Maybe Day doesn’t think Martell is all that and has let him know, either directly or indirectly. The kicker is Martell will have sit out a year if he transfers and Fields ridiculously probably won’t.
Kid talked so much shxt trying to "scare" Fields from going there. He's not better than Fields any day of the week, he knows it lol
Beyond that, Day is getting his guys in there. Staff and otherwise.
The real star of the Martell family is Tate's sister, Rylee.
So Fields is not ass, my dude?
Tate Martell has every reason to be mad. He EARNED the job and now politics may take it away from him.
fields reminds me of the kid we had several years ago who transferred because his momma thought he got a raw deal. I can't even think of his name now... that is telling...
I disagree. Nothing Fields has done at the college or high school level leads me to conclude he’s better than Martell.
What makes you so sure Fields is better? Is it recruiting rating? Height? That sounds like the same mistake Oklahoma originally made with Cody Thomas & Trevor Knight over Baker Mayfield.
Can we just call it the transfer database instead of a portal?
He earned the job until they had the #1 recruit in last years class come in. Is Ohio St supposed to turn down Fields because Martell “earned it”.
No, you always bring in the best players you can, if you want to play beat him out.
That’s not how this works. It’s easy for you to say “if you want to play beat him out.”, because you have no skin in the game. Martell gets 4 years of eligibility to play football for the rest of his life.
The expert happens to be representing the Fields family interests.
Probably other interests as well.
How exactly did Tate Martell "earn" the job? Who did he beat out for it?
Justin Fields actually went head-to-head with Jake Fromm for the starting QB spot, and then chose to leave due to racism/getting beaten out/being used as a tackling dummy on the fake punt unit. Martell apparently doesn't even have enough confidence in himself to battle Fields before they step on the field together.
Bama QB went 26-2 and was replaced by Freshman in National Title game. Clemson QB replaced by true freshman as well and go on to win the National Title. No job is guaranteed, especially not the QB role
So Ohio St. isn’t supposed to recruit anyone else who can improve the team because they have Martell?
I’ve played sports at a high level, I won a National Championship as an important role bench player in my second to last year of eligibility. During my 5th year I was the shoe in to be a starter but I got recruited over by a blue chip recruit and went back to the bench the next year.
I didn’t complain because I knew it helped the team, and I wasn’t owed anything. To say someone deserves to start because they waited is 100% BS and to not try to the better the team in anyway possible let’s the entire team down. Ohio St. owes nothing to Martell.
Oklahoma would fit his skill set. So would Auburn and UF. Be funny if he transferred to UGA. He has to sit a year unless he has some hardship......
