    I don’t mind if he has chosen another destination...but this reversal of decision makes his original excuse for leaving the ECU program seem disingenuous.

    No offense intended, BIG, but it reminds me of when Urban Meyer left the Florida Program.

    No offense taken. I make no apologies for Meyer's transgressions.

    So now, who are we looking at QBs?
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    Why does every thread now have to include transgression people? Ok, ok, pee where you want....but please stay off of the football board with your politics

    Well, you can't force a kid to sign ...you just have to take him at his word and there was a long deep discussion with him and the coaching staff. He told them he was 100 percent. However, anything and everything will happen with these kids. The reasoning or so he told....was he wanted to be close to home and go on to coach and Bama was a perfect fit but I can only wish him the best in that his decision pans out for him.RTR

    Just went up to a town west of Ann Arbor -- first time in that area. Did not realize how rural the area is. Really cold -- glad to be headed back South. The natives could not have been nicer to me...we laughed and talked football when not focusing on our matters.

    Believe it or not there are some really great college towns outside of Tuscaloosa!!

    Crazy to think Gardner Menshew was once committed here and most likely would have been a backup or possibly 3rd stringer. Kid is now being looked at a potential Heisman contender. Our staff is relentless at finding the best talent at every corner!

    I just saw The Pirate say on Gameday say it was a very short sales pitch he made to Menshew. "Do you want to be the back-up at Bama or do you want to lead the nation in passing?" Glad he went to WSU since he is having a storybook ending to his college career.

    Agreed! Probably helped out his draft stock for sure.

    Only logical answer is that the QB room won't remain static.

    So either any graduate transfers won't be QBs, or the QB room won't remain static.

    Could get interesting.
    Would not surprise me
