    Haven't read the whole thread but there are people bashing Tate in it? I have no problem with him exploring his options. He doesn't have a responsibility to Ohio State to do what's best for them.

    As for what he said a week ago, who cares. He's 20.

    I'd say the same, except for me it was the 1970s and nobody would have given a shit about me on social media anyhow.

    Not really any bashing here. On other forums, that’s a different story....

    Gross. Awfully hypocritical to welcome Fields with open arms and then turn on a guy who leaves for the same reason Fields just left his team.

    Called it re:QB depth. We're only keeping one of these guys.
    Good luck to Tate. I expected Day would try to slow play the choice like Haskins/Burrow even though it was obvious from the start... maybe they still do in order to get most xp out of Spring... but Fields is Day's guy.

    Yes, good point. But he'll also be receiving much of the 1st team reps rather than splitting them if there was a true QB battle throughout Spring. So I like his chances of picking up the offense.

    Don't forget, they'll be wanting Baldwin getting up to speed too.

    Pretty much agree. I'm sure Tate feels a little hurt that he put 2 years in being a good soldier when he could have started for a lot of teams and then when it was his shot they immediately brought someone in to take his place. I have no problem with Day bringing in Fields and I have no problem with Tate feeling some type of way and exploring his options as a result. To the people who say he can't play anyway if he transfers so why not just stay? Because he has no future there and can start learning the playbook etc somewhere else?

    It wasn’t really that anyone would’ve cared, it was just the stupid shit I said and did.

    Doesnt he grad in May? It's basically last year's situation x2... though i'd say Burrow handled it better.
    Then again, Burrow had plenty of time to adjust... situation changed a lot more suddenly for Tate.
    I'll be rooting for him if he does leave. Disclaimer... Miami is hard to root for... but ill try

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    How did OSU make the first move to distance themselves? By taking a 5 star recruit when the position group is very thin?

    For sure, wouldnt be rooting for him there.
    But the rumors seem to indicate Miami as a potential landing spot.
    It was a lot easier to pull for Burrow at LSU.

    I haven’t really seen anybody criticize Tate for putting his name in the portal. Smart move, if you ask me. If he waits until after the Spring - with guys like Wimbush and Hurts transferring - he may not have as many options.

    His words bothered me. I like confidence. It’s a good thing. Trashtalking a potential future teammate? Nah. Not cool. I forgive the youthful boasting but he shouldn’t have said some of what he said. And hopefully someone told him that and a lesson was learned.

    I don't see Miami being difficult to root for at all in a world where Clempsin has Dabo Swinney, a test tube quarterback, and a Charmin soft schedule.

    And then proceeding to show their shiny new toy off in front of everyone. Ohio State wasn't shy about how this was going to play out- I'm with billmac that concessions were made. And probably rightly so. Fields is next level talent and there's obviously reservations about Tate's abilities.

    I think Tate loves Ohio State but he's very publicly being forced out and has been slowly over the last month- this isn't just any position, it's QB1. Half of Buckeye nation moved on the second they found out the possibility of Fields. Now he's (planning on) moving on. Is what it is.
