I'm just disappointed in our fanbase.  Instead of wishing the kid the best (he worked his ass off while he was here) we are calling him, "soft, weak, not a team player, bad attitude" etc.  We are so selfish and only care about our "Nebraska football" that we don't care he's doing what's best for him and what's best to further his career to the next level.  We would all go elsewhere for a job if that included better opportunities.  We need to look in the mirror, we're no better than the ksu, cu, mizzou, Texas fans that we despise.  Gebbia put the work in while he was here, let's wish him the best instead of being salty about it.

 

Amen.

He's transferring for himself. You can't at the same time care more about the team and transfer because it's best for yourself. Not everyone thinks it's a negative. Many people have stated he's doing what's best for him and have no problem with that and would do the same thing.

There are a lot of people outside of huskerboard who aren't as accepting.  Like I said, would you stay in a company where you like your co workers aka team over transferring to another company where you could move up the ladder in a short time to possibly make a lot more money?

I never understood why Gebia did not seek his release  immediately after the coaching change.  His body type did not fit this offense and in the end that was the difference.  Based on how quickly he dis-enrolled and asked for his scholly release Gebia and family had a plan in place  if not named the starter.  In the short run, he took valuable REPs away from the next kid on the list to be ready as the backup. Not a good look on his part.

 

I think you can put it together.

 

Terrible season ends

 

Terrible coach and staff terminated

 

New coach comes in from an undefeated season (and saught after)

 

Returning starting QB bails

 

POB bails (backup)

 

TG is given a fair chance to win the starting job

 

TG is talented, smart, and knows he has to beat out a true frosh that didn't play his SR year of HS bc of injury.

 

And the other competition are walkons.

 

Plan B is to bail if somehow he doesnt become starter. 

 

Go ball out and win the job, but have backup plan immediately ready to rollout and bail.

 

Nothing personal, just business

If AM goes down, this season just became a potential nightmare.  I guess that is what disappoints me the most.  TG is a vital / essential player to the team and how we do this year.  We need a thread on Bunch because its been AM/TG talk and Bunch might become one of the the most important players of the season if he has to play a lot of snaps or spell AM a game or two, especially if we are doing well and have a lot at stake.

A lot of people project theirfeelings of being part of the Husker program on these kids, especially those who come from out of state. He sounds like a really good kid, but the bottom line is Nebraska was a stepping stone on his (hopefull) path to the NFL. 

 

We we all want these kids to bleed Husker red, but I’m not sure that is even prevalent out there in the Nebraska high school kids anymore, let alone a kid from California. 

 

Dissapounted in his decision? Sure. Understand it?  Definitely

Now that TG took his ball and went home, does that mean we can give a scholarship to a walk on? It seems unfair if TB's scholarship counts against Nebraska, yet TG gets credit for being enrolled at another school at the same time.

 

It's burned. Two years of scholarships at Nebraska, leaving us nothing to show for it.

None of Rliey's QB's made a difference at NU...

 

Hey, Bunch counts as a Riley recruit! It wouldn't take much for him to pass the combined total wins of Tanner Lee, Potatoes O'Brien, and Tristan Gebbia at Nebraska! :koolaid2:

What if anything do we know about Bunch and or Masker beyond the fact that neither made the depth chart and reportedly were not anywhere near being in the QB race as a practical matter?

 

Go back and watch the spring game again and see how you feel about Bunch. Most of us thought he looked pretty decent, and Frost called him a "pleasant surprise".

2013: Taylor Martinez, Tommy Armstrong and Ryker Fyfe each started at least once.

 

Did you forget Ron Kellogg? Fyfe was never a starter in 2013, looks like he played a single snap that year.

a lot of people seem to be forgetting that gebbia didn't come here to play in a spread offense. he came here to play in a pro offense. i have no idea how anyone can fault him for leaving. He deserves credit for sticking it out until the end.

 

The bad news for Gebbia is the NFL is changing. What people call a spread offense is becoming the NFL offense.

It's also not a stretch to say Martinez could really struggle. True freshman don't have a great track record in college football history. Obviously there are exceptions

 

The exceptions tend to be recent and more and more top programs are willing to start freshmen.

What's the percentage of backups who stick it out and then get drafted in the NFL? Would love to see how common of an occurrence that is. 

 

Pretty hard to make the league if you don't start. On the other hand, there aren't many Baker Mayfield's, either. Guys that transfer into major college programs, start, and then get drafted are very rare it appears, too. With so many talented transfers that seems low. Maybe given enough time we see that trend change. Right now, most of the transfers that make it to the NFL are from lower tier schools, consequently getting drafted lower and having a harder time making a team. When a QB decides to transfer like this, it can be a tough road.

Yeah, I meant Kellogg in 2013.
