If you want to talk Big South smack or ramble ad nauseum about your favorite pro or major college teams, this is the place to let it rip.

The story pretty clearly lays out the baseball angle, too.

I’m all for the kid’s right to transfer to Ohio State if he’s not good enough to beat out Jake From State Fromm.

But hiring a troll attorney and cynically claiming to feel “unsafe” due to racism so you don’t have to follow the rules speaks pretty horrifically of his and his father’s character.

Never thought I would say this in my life, but I’m rooting for Tate.
I don’t understand your outrage here. A Georgia baseball player called him the N-word and was kicked off the team for it. It happened. You don’t know whether he feels unsafe or not.

The dumbest person in the country should know Fields is transferring because he is #2 on depth chart at Georgia. Even the NCAA knows this.
Baseball has nothing to do with this transfer. Zero.
I hope he has to sit out a year, and never sees the field for Ohio State. Anyone who transfers from SEC to Big 10 isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

if he wins with that poor of an argument, this will open the floodgates. shea won because of documented violations by Liberty's new HC. and it apparently was only by slim margins that he did.

what will be interesting is that Tate Martell is legit. There is no guarantee that fields will be the starter at OSU either.

That is true, but Drew Brees is an example of a "shorter" quarterback who can be successful at the NFL level. If Martell wins the job, he will need to show an elite level of accuracy to see that to fruition though

brees was a prostyle qb at purdue. martell is not. he doesn't have the arm accuracy anywhere close to that or haskins. not saying it can't develop but if he's drafted, its for something other than QB in my opinion.

FBS football is reaching the point to where it's no longer signing a high school QB and coaching him up for 3 or 4 years. With all these transfers, it's becoming:

College football has also reached the point where many WB’s come already “coached up”. Just look at who the best QB on the field was Monday night.

WB's ? Do you mean QB's ?

Freshmen QBs do come more prepared now than in the past.

thats the speculation. on 11warriors (the big OSU forum) they are freaking out because many don't believe that fields will get his appeal approved. But others are like, this wouldn't of happened if they didn't know for sure but Martell has been a loudmouth through this entire process.

All these transfers remind me of elementary school playground where we "chose up" and played at recess every day. Different teams every day.

while i think this isn't good, i think the NCAA doesn't care about this at all. It keeps them in headlines and allowing players more freedom in this regard may allow them to shed the "pay them" criticism somewhat. at least allow them to kick the can down the road.

I have always maintained that all sports, this side of Professional ranks (MLB, NFL, NBA) should be about playing the sport and trying to win championships............................not $$$$$$$$$.

How well I know. It's even getting that way here in the 3rd world. I have daily interactions with about a dozen kids between the ages of 2 and 14. They love to play............. video games. I did manage to find something they actually like to actively play with. Bought 3 nerf guns and 100 foam darts for about 25 bucks on Amazon as Christmas presents. They love it, but after about 20 minutes it's back to the tablet, laptop and cellphone. I try to set time limits, but it's tough. I've already told my son that in a couple of years when he is old enough he is going to baseball school in the afternoon after he finishes class. He seems to like the idea right now. We'll see.

Well you are closer in understanding than ballcoach unsurprisingly. We no longer allow kids to just Play. It has to be organized with rules, score and championships. There is plenty of time for that but the idea of Sport has filtered so far down into Youth Activities it’s sad. With your 3 nerf guns and 100 nerf darts you did more for those kids at that age then setting up a double elimination round robin tournament
