    .

    In perfect world, you only deserve what you earn. And in sport you have to compete And be the best to earn to play. So I agree with you.....

    (Caveat- But sometimes politics and favorites rear their ugly heads with coaches. It shouldn't and it is counter productive, but sometimes the best guy doesn't always get the nod.)

    I have no idea what the deal is at OSU. Entitlement, fear of competition or politics. Who knows. Maybe Day told Martell, "Hey kid your great, but I want the 6'3" 235lb gunslinger QB, just like the last 3 QBs who rolled through hear at OSU.

    Both were part of the 11

    Tate Fields and Fabio were there

    Fields won and became # 1

    Uga wasted his frosh year unlike Dabo who played the best guy

    Exactly. The racism was so rampant he stayed all year and his sister signed a scholarship to uga after that incident.

    Fields and Martell didn't compete against each other. They weren't in the same class.

    Glad you find his allegations humorous.

    It's pretty transparent what he is doing. To give it any kind of validity insults our intelligence.

    Apparently he’s looking at WVU, Auburn & Miami.

    Hopefully, daddy Fields keeps dogging (no pun intended) Kirby even after his son leaves UGA.

    Doesn’t matter

    He beat Fabio and Fabio beat the Death Star and Tua who was mvp when Tate was at the 11

    Fields>Fabio>Tua>Tate according to head to head so far

    This. His only shot at playing next year is to play the race card--all based on the random comment of an UGA baseball player who has been dismissed from the team for said comment. How that implicates UGA in a pattern of racial discrimination against Fields is beyond me. I guess the fact that Fromm just happens to be white makes his case? Please.

    I'm glad Fields didn't come to UF; when Franks beat him out he would have done the same thing. Sounds like Fields has a major entitlement problem.

    While OSU doesn’t legally owe Martell anything, none of us know what promises were made and broken. Likewise, Martell doesn’t owe OSU anything. The guy thinks he has a future in the NFL so he needs a stage to showcase his talents. Just business.

    Jokes tend to be humorous. And his "claim" is clearly a joke. To go there, just because you don't have the stones to wait a year (either at UGa or as part of a transfer) says all I need to know about Fields. Kid is a crud and I hope he (and OSU) are a complete and unmitigated failure. Dude's a cancer. OSU deserves everything they get with him (and I'm not predicting good things).

    I hate judging situations with such little info BUT if his situation was worthy of a hardship then he should have separated himself from the situation immediately. It is hard to take his claim serious considering he stayed in hopes he would play

    Hahahaha Franks beat out Fields!? You don’t really believe this, do you?
    FF struggled to separate from 2* Trask...Fields would have relegated Franks to the bench by the end of the spring game.

    Fields played in one game and stated I handed off perfect ...

    Uga screws up theirs highest rated recruit and somehow it’s the kids fault

    Fields is with Day now and he will let him do more than hand off

    Fromm is the fave because he almost was good enough to win titles
