Very nice post, Soup!

Terrance Sullivan

What a wild ride these last 3 weeks have been.

BigWindyCane


JT4 and Braxton Berrios are polar opposites. If the Canes had a few more players with Berrios mentality and attitude on the Canes offense this past season, the Canes would not have lost six games.

If JT4 is back, then I will cheer for him. I am not a fan of the drama though. I hope CMD knows what he is doing by taking him back, and can manage all of it. I am pulling for CMD to be successful, so I will have to give CMD the benefit of the doubt.

TonyCane,

Great predictions so far. Tate is also a strong possibility. Hurts is 50/50. This would be a great week

TruCane81

We need to pull out the “sec” benefits for JT4.

Move the fam and baby girl here Tua style.

Might help him keep it together better.

Herbieibis

The Herb wants another Ship and to be able to brag and talk Shyt, sort of like a modern day Fogg Horn Leg Horn.

TruCane81

Damn Sota those are nice.

Where mine at?

HillviewCane

Was JT brave for recognizing bad leadership and making an effort to get out? Is it drama or recognition. I guess it depends but hell, he essentially did the same thing Manny did, at the same time too. Manny was abandoning us to go to Temple. Then things changed and he came back.

Hopefully JT makes the team better but Manny probably get's where JT was coming from. Clean slate but more accountability going forward is not a bad play.

solarcane

Sota has always been a class act.
I have enjoyed his blogging from the get go

solarcane

I think the team leader/group thing is going to help JT4.

He gets in a team of his peers in the locker room and has to walk the walk or have them all pushing the plough, he will grow up.

You already know DJ Dallas and Shaq will be two of the permanent captains, they won't put up with missing meetings.

We will know, the first time he is 15 yrs behind the defender and the qb sails it five yards behind him.

Martell is going to have to sit out a year. I heard rumors he might graduate before summer which will make him eligible to play right away.

I think Williams will transfer now!

He's got ability. He looks like Rosier off the hoof, perhaps a bit faster and certainly more agile. I think this means we are gonna see a QB transfer though.

solarcane

Various sports writers

" Martell is hopeful to graduate from OSU this spring with hopes of gaining immediate eligibility."

nemo2002

I have one question about Tate Martell.
If he stays at OSU this Spring in order to graduate in May (and therefore qualify to play for UM immediately next season as a grad transfer) can he truly emerge as our #1 QB with so little practice time (with our team) before the start of the 2019 season?

Herbieibis

It's clean and a new system, either get with it, Perry, Weldon and Williams or get out! Somebody will leave.

Old Skool


What's so good about Martell???

Posted by: WWIN | January 16, 2019 at 12:36 AM

From what I have seen of his play in quick reviews of his HS and OSU footage is leadership and situational awareness. The ability to direct the receivers and elude the defenders while the play is underway is rare to my knowledge. Granted the coach may have given him leeway to do such things whereas Richt could have kept the clamps on.

Old Skool

Thinking about next year ... if Manny and Enos can't loosen defensive sphincters with an offense of Martell, Lingard, Davis, Brevin, Mallory, Pope, Payton and Thomas, it's time to turn in their coach cards, go sip Shirley Temples and carry their wives' purses.

dg

Don’t understand the hype around Martell...Fields transfers to his school and he leaves....Why do the Canes need this guy again? Seems mentally soft and afraid of competition.

CoCane

I thought you could get a waiver and not have to sit out a year if you're transferring due to a coach leaving...

Old Skool

Martell is a known quantity with a skill set that the staff can have some confidence in. Otherwise, we are entering the season with N'Kosi, Jarren and Cade. Two of whom have serious questions surrounding them and the other is a complete unknown. Also Manny's riding a wave of momentum and a significant opportunity to make a big splash next fall. why not do everything to ensure he makes the most of it.
Moving on may not always been a sign of weakness but a recognition of opportunity or at least a willingness to step into the unknown.
Was Brock Berlin mentally soft and afraid of competing with Rex Grossman? How about Steve Jobs and John Sculley? I"m sure there are arguments both ways, but that's my take.

thirstybuzzardcane

When you go 43-0 and win 3 Nation Championships in high school you must be doing something right.

Posted by: dg | January 16, 2019 at 05:47 AM

Don't think Fields is transferring anywhere unless he was pretty much guaranteed the starting spot.

Maybe Martell knew the writing was on the wall and did what's best for him.

Transfers at QB in no way mean you're soft anymore. It's nothing but a numbers game. The days of sitting around waiting your turn are over.

Old Skool

Manny seems to be handling the promotion right -- breaking things one a time rather than combining them into a single day. Yesterday it was Tate, today could be the UCLA DT.

AeroCane

To know how good the guy is, martell, simply go to the osu website on rivals, go back to 2017 and click
He had offers from osu, bama, Auburn, FSU, Okie State among others
This tells me all I need to know!
In manny and Enos we trust

Dumb comment on my part. I forgot about Thomas. It's a pity he couldn't have announced today. And then had the presume UCLA DT announce tomorrow (assuming he does) it would keep that momentum going and our name out there on a daily basis.

I'm sure these things aren't a big deal. Anyone could've pulled this off.

Go Canes!!

Hale: Of the top 5 QB recruits, here’s how many have transferred…
2018: 1/5
2017: 2/5
2016: 3/5
2015: 4/5 (and 7/8)
2014: 3/5

So 13/25 (with more undoubtedly to come) suggests, at best, you have < 50% chance to keep an elite QB you sign.

solarcane

Skool,
That was like some good stuff you just laid down had me grinning!

solarcane

113 TDs and 9 interceptions in 3 yrs plus 35 rushing TDs.

Kosi could muster up 9 interceptions in three good games if he staid on track.


Before arriving in Columbus, Martell was a high school standout, guiding Bishop Gorman to three straight Nevada state championships. The No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the 247Sports composite rankings for the Class of 2017, Martell threw for 7,507 yards and 113 touchdowns, with nine interceptions, in his three seasons, according to MaxPreps.com. He added 2,294 rushing yards and 35 touchdowns on 317 carries for an average of 7.2 yards per carry.

OK, everybody sit yo azz down.

I agree with Go Canes 100%.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Herbieibis

Now, if Manny can flip Bogle back around and add a few more pieces, this recruiting season just went from the out house to the penthouse.
Let other teams beefem up for a year or 2 then will take them as 3rd year soph.
We are getting to be like the old Oakland raiders from the 70's where half their team started somewhere else and they turned into gold for the Raiders.

solarcane

The Tater has a lot on his plate to be on the field against the Gators.

Study to graduate from the Ohio State on time.
Learn a completely new offense.
Try and get in sync with his receivers

If Williams light comes on, and he knows the playbook Tater will have to beat him out too if Williams stays.

If we are going to go 15 and 0 and win it all like people will be talking about by February Tater needs to bring it.

2 for 2, and the Canes are killing it in the transfer arena with a QB, a WR, and OT and maybe a DT soon. I also think 2019 recruiting will also pick up before NSD, but schollies are filling up with transfers right now.

CMD seems to have a lot of momentum right now. Having a good OC/QB coach like Enos makes a big difference. IT would be great if Martel has immediate eligibility, and the Canes can get Hurts too. The QB room will be full, and QB play will improve drammatically.

Still pulling for Hurts to sign.

AeroCane

If martell gets eligibility or is even working on it, hurts would be dumb to come here! He should go to Oklahoma where Murray just left and he has a shot to start. Tate can be our ‘star’ for at least 2 years! (I hope!)

UMike

As of right now, Martell can't play in 2019, not sure what all the talk about is for him and next season lol... He has hired lawyers and is appealing but as of now he has to sit out a year.

AeroCane

Martell, Jett Thomas, Pope, cam and lingard, brevin and Mallory
AND Enos!
All I can say is ‘WOW’a d I’m excited!

CaneRock

The kid left OSU because He knew Justin Fields was better than Him.

Same way Bryant left Clemson because Lawrence was better than Him.

Same way Barnett & Cornwell left Alabama because Hurts was better than them.

Same way Jacob Coker left FSU because Winston was better than Him.

All the term "scared of competition means" is "I'm not better than this guy so I'm leaving".

CaneRock

Anyone could've pulled this off.

Posted by: JaxCane | January 16, 2019 at 08:39 AM

Jacory Harris was 30-0 in HS and put up some monster stats, how'd that work out?

solarcane

CaneRock,
Times have changed and the whole thing is about getting your brand on the market first.

Transferring isn't about being afraid its about getting on the field to advertise your product.

College football isn't about winning National Championship rings, its about auditioning for the N F L

Go Canes!!

Posted by: CaneRock | January 16, 2019 at 11:05 AM

Who were the five best wire to wire starters last year?

Murray
Tua
Haskins
Grier
Minshew

Three of those five were transfers, including the Heisman winner.

Baker Mayfield, last year’s Heisman winner and the first pick of the draft was a transfer.

Once these guys burn or need to burn their redshirts it becomes a time thing only.

Why compete against Fields when he’s the hand picked selection by the new head coach? Do you really think he didn’t get promises before transferring.

Martell was Urban’s guy. This kid absolutely did the right thing by transferring.

Herbieibis

Jabony Harris was color blind was his problem.

True but perception is way more ‘important’ than reality lol
The perception is he’s working on playing this year so that is enough for a young college kid!
Canerock- before you go dissing Tate and comparing him to Jacory, look at who actually offered the kids- and they are totally different styles of qb
Imo Tate is an amazing talent and a great pick up

orange 'n green in the vein

"Posted by: CoCane | January 16, 2019 at 06:25 AM"

If he got the basket weaving degree already he can transfer and play immediately for a school that offers a major he enrolls in that ohiotaint doesn't have available in Columbus.

Otherwise, if he gets a waiver granted he can play right away, if the waiver is rejected he has to sit out a year and yes he redshirted already so it counts on the five to play four clock against him while he runs the scout team.

Frank Costa starter kit either way.

86Cane

Between now and the first game of 2019 there will be LOTS of talk, lots or recruiting, lots of coaching, lots of news and lots of Legends of Greentree rumors. But when the opening kickoff happens in Orlando in August all that will matter is this:

But on the flip... cane fans can't call our QB's soft for transferring or thinking about it

Herbieibis

The Herb says this, the best case scenario is for Martel to sit this year and Hurts comes for this year.
Martel is barely 6ft. If that.
Hurts can't wait on a maybe Martel is granted a waiver or not, this would be a gamble for him. I now see him going to Oakie. If he does go their and Martel is not granted a waiver, I guess we'll see how good Enos is with these 3 foul ups.
