    IF Fields were to come to Ohio State, I could easily see a 2 QB system that would be closer in style of play than Martell/Haskins. I doubt either would want that but who knows.

    They used that system due to Haskins' limited ability with his legs. Fields is just as good, if not better, than Tate in that regard.

    I am in the camp that you take him if he wants in. competition is a good thing.

    More and more in today's CFB, it's becoming an "acquisitions" game. If a talent like Fields wants to join your squad, you let him. Not saying I necessarily like it, but that's where we are.

    I'm worried that it will hurt the locker room. Urban always talked about how hard Tate is working and how hard it is for him to sit, and now to have it ripped out from under him?

    It's different if it's another kid we recruited out of high school who was just amazing. Just worried what the effects could be. And Fields hasn't really proven anything yet, we don't know if he is any better than Tate.

    I cannot imagine a situation where Fields would be handed the job. I would have to imagine it would be an open competition, and if Fields isn't any better than Tate, then I would think the better kid would play.

    I still think it's all moot, because OU has two straight Heisman winners at the position and no clear choice next year. If he wants a clear path to playing time, it's probably in Norman.

    If Fields wants in you take him. Quincy Avery raved about his football IQ, and of course after working with Haskins this summer and seeing him take-off Avery is enamored with Ryan Day.

    This article is a bit dated citing Deshaun Watson as Avery's most distinguished protege, Avery also tutored Patrick Mahomes.

    Not so quiet rumor amongst the Dawg boards is Southern Cal.

    Their current Freshman QB is nothing amazing (or something that would block Justin from starting) and working with their new OC who basically taught Pat Mahomes how to play QB.

    Gotta think Helton's tenuous job security might give pause, though...

    If PAC teams are legit destinations he's better off going to Arizona and playing for Sumlin. Perfect fit for that system.

    I seriously doubt that he ends up here; I just love all the falling-sky-panic, kicked-in-the-balls, woe-is-me reaction from the dfbia and hope that continues for a few more days/weeks.

    I think Sumlin has proven that Johnny Manziel is the only perfect fit for his system.

    If anything Manziel proved he was the perfect drinking buddy.

    Would make since w/ Kingsbury as the new OC. Would be the only thing USC could do to make them interesting in 2019 (assuming he gets cleared, which I expect). How sad it has gotten for USC.
