    That is what I am saying also. This is very, very risky.

    Ohio State and Fields have been in contact...…..

    Ohio State is also talking to Martell who is obviously concerned...…...if you are not aware, Martell can graduate in the spring....

    Also, other schools are kicking the tires on Martell...………

    This could blow-up in Day's face...…..

    Urban is not involved with the situation...…...

    I see this situation cost us our only QB recruit in the 2019 class...……………:mad:

    The kid never even visited Georgia!

    Everyone, this is not something we need...…….

    I highly doubt Day will have any problems finding a QB.

    Fields is a high reward type of guy. When he was committed to Penn State, I was really nervous about playing him and was hoping Urban would flip him.

    Imo, if he falls in our lap, we absolutely have to take him. It’d be like turning down Haskins because we have Burrow. One is good, the other is great. And I have not issue calling Fields great, because I see his potential, and Day will get him to a Heisman level. Confident.

    But I do see the concern of pissing off Tate and Fields ultimately going elsewhere.

    Day is playing with fire...……

    Lets say they continue to flirt with Fields...……..

    Martell feels slighted and decides to leave...…..

    Fields plays Ohio State and goes elsewhere...….

    That leaves Day in his first year as the guy with a QB room consisting of the following:

    Baldwin coming off an ACL and a walk-on QB in Chugunov.

    I understand both sides of this and it’s not an easy decision to make.

    Regardless, QB depth is a big problem right now. I really do like Martell but haven’t been sold on him as a player for various reasons.

    I don’t think Mathis would have ever played here tbh.

    IF it came to that then they are forced to find another transfer qb that plays right away. No way they go with Baldwin this early.

    I would have liked Mathis as a guy in the room considering our depth...……

    Can Ohio State find a quality transfer if they strike out with Fields?

    This forces Ohio State to take 2 quarterbacks in the 2020 class and how is Miller going to feel about that? This whole Fields situation is causing a massive ripple effect.

    I think this speaks to either Day's confidence in Baldwin in the event of a worst case (Fields goes elsewhere and Martel is pissed), or it speaks to Day's lack of confidence in both Martel and Baldwin

    I understand how talented Fields is and his POTENTIAL.

    I am concerned about the following:

    Losing Martell and not getting Fields....
    Giving a kid a starting position without him earning it.....
    Disrupting the team chemistry and locker room if he is handed the job...…..
    Impact to the 2020 recruiting class in reference to the QB position...….

    Agreed. I think Day loves Baldwin but doesn’t feel that Martell is someone who can run his style of offense as well.

    I do think Martell can be really good, but not sure if those crossing routes across the middle with 6’7” OL and 6’5” DL three yards in front of him is something that Tate can effectively hit on a regular basis

    Fair.

    We will just have to trust Day and see how he handles it. His first big decision as a coach could actually make or break him, as these first couple of years are crucial

    Yep. Certainly can be a huge decision that could impact the culture created by Urban and put Day on a path for the next few years.....…..
