    If I look up "head case" in the dictionary, will I see his picture?
    After watching the video, I don't think low self esteem is one of his problems.

    I don't see Justin Fields at #12. That's a wasted pick

    If you really felt that way young man, stay at Miami and prove yourself there.

    4 years in college and zero playing time so far. Kid will be in college longer than Bluto in Animal House. Maybe he’ll wind up a Senator (Democrat no doubt).

    This is happening all over and will make kids wary of the enticing portal outcome.

    This year is like a big game of musical chairs and some guys left with no chair. I lean towards it being just a one year phenomena with the unique covid-portal cases. But I assume it just happens one time, which might be a bad assumption. We will see. Maybe the NCAA will make another adjustment?

    Some of these guys might portal to driving a garbage truck.

    Did Ovie not end up transferring from Notre Dame? Sark didn't mention him in the PC.

    He got some very limited playing time running the Ohio State Wildcat formation a few times. He's a pretty good runner.

    Unfortunately, many athletes will learn the hard way that it’s not just their current team’s coaches who don’t think they’re good enough to start in major college football.

    I am sure some of them are probably being pushed out the door. What percentage, who can say because very few people would want to say that their scholarship has been pulled.

    This is really bad news. This is the second highly rated lineman (Javonne Shepherd) that the team has lost in the last 2 years.

    Could be.

    Some of the more ethical coaches might have a difficult conversation with the player that goes something like this:

    "You're free to stick around on scholarship, work out, practice hard, and get your degree. But, realistically, looking at the depth chart and our projections, I don't think it's very likely that you'll be seeing the playing filed much (or ever) during games. If you want to transfer, we'll help you land at a good place as much as we're allowed to. The choice is yours. No hard feelings either way."

    Then there's the Mack Brown way. When a kid went to see MB to ask what he could do to better his status and improve his chances, Mack responded, "If you want your release, you got it", and pointed at the door.
