I don't think you should be allowed to make this decision 48 hours after being informed you won't be the starter. All but 22 of your teammates are in the same position, and some of those 22 won't be starting at season's end. That's how the game works.

 

The history of back-up quarterbacks stepping in and becoming heroes is just as long as transfer quarterbacks who have their dreams come true at the new school. 

Considering every other position has been said to be a rotation, no, they aren't in the same position.

THERE SHOULD BE AT LEAST 2 SIX-FOOT PARTY SUBS ON THAT TABLE

We get it Todd, you work out.

Longer I’d guess. There aren’t many like Russell Wilson. 

 

QBs don’t rotate like the other positions though. The only other positions similar are K and P. Maybe C.

By staying past the scholarship, he knew it would cost a teammate a scholarship. Planning to leave if you are not the starter, hurts the entire team, but specifically, it robs a walkon of approximately $20,000.

 

I understand what you're trying to get at, and like most on here I don't like what Gebbia did, but we have no idea if he planned on leaving if not being named starter before Saturday or not. But we also don't know who/what else may have pushed him to leave, hell we dont know that if Gebbia would have stayed he would have turned bitter and became a cancer or not. There is so many variables and we no virtually nothing short of Martinez got the nod and Gebbia made the decision to transfer. We gotta take this at face value, say damned the luck, move on to Saturday, and watch our Husker beat the hell out of the Zips

I agree. I really dislike what TG did. Transfer in the spring. Don't wait until game week. Yes it may be best for TG, but he left his team without a backup (another could have been recruited, Bunch would have been better prepared, etc.), and he cost a scholarship to a deserving walkon. I do not think the argument of transferring is OK because it was best for TG. Do the guys that robbed Frost's house get off by making the argument that it was best for them?

 

He left his team without one backup (there are others) in a rebuilding year with no real hope for a championship or any other standard/goal that Nebraska has. Frankly, this barely hurts Nebraska at all. On the other hand, losing another year of eligibility could hurt Tristan far worse, proportionately speaking.

 

As far as the robbers, I mean, you're comparing a situation where people are committing a crime and there's an actual victim to a kid deciding to play football at a different school? ...wut?

Re: the bold, that's not true at all. Quarterback is unlike all other 21 positions on the field and you know that. 

 

As far as the history of backups vs transfers, here's the lists I can come up with off the top of my head. Obviously not scientific, just who I could recall quickly:

 

Transfers:

Russell Wilson

Baker Mayfield

Cam Newton

Ryan Mallet

Jake Coker

Nick Marshall

Nick Foles

Vince Ferragamo

Scott Frost

Troy Aikman

 

Backups:

Brook Berringer

Matt Cassell

Alabama's freshman they put in the national title game

J.T. Barrett

Cardale Jones

I don't have a problem with him leaving. Logically, it mostly makes sense. But the timing sucks, and from what it appears, they had this card ready to play if he didn't get the job. So when he talked to Verduzco and Frost on Saturday, he wasn't truthful. Curious to hear what his teammates think.

My theory is his dad (who said last fall that California players wouldn’t come to Nebraska anymore if Riley was fired) had it planned out but didn’t want to mess with his head by saying “in case you don’t win the job...”

I wonder what sort of feeling he'll get coming out of the tunnel at Oregon State and realize he's played in front of three times as many fans at a practice before.  

 

Unlike the baseball players, he should be able to go to class and not be bothered by fans.

 

:D

After listening to Big Red Wrap Up, and the latest HOL podcast... this seems to be pretty accurate. So it's less knee-jerk, and more pre-meditated. I don't know which is worse.

If I had to hazard a guess, I would bet Mr. Nice Guy was on the phone to somebody after the depth chart was released Sunday morning.

Why do you say that?

 

I ask because I think it's equally plausible that as soon as he made the decision to leave they (Tristan and his dad) went to work on finding a new home asap. With Tristan's talent level he probably had people blowing up his phone as soon as it was announced he didn't show for practice.

If it was planned out ahead of time, then yeah...unfortunate for sure if that's the case.

Well if he did, that's tampering unless Tristan called them.

That's what the HOL guys are hinting at.

Is the QB different? Sure. He's the star of the team. But that comes with another responsibility. 

 

One of the differences is that QBs are in a better position to get hurt. That's why the second string QB is often the second most important player on the team. 

 

Every player told he's in "rotation" knows he will have to become the better of the two players if he wants to extend his playing career. You either wait for an injury, or outplay him in practice. Not so different from the back-up QB.

 

When you leave the college, your team and your teammates the moment the depth chart is revealed, you literally believe you are better than this, and it's not a great message.  A WR, RB, DB or god-forbid an interior lineman would be considered a huge primadonna if he bolted at the first depth chart.


And yeah, there's usually a father behind these decisions. 

 

Maybe Tristan Gebbia is that special. We'll see.

I don't think QB is more likely to get hurt than say a lineman. Tristan was not going to steal the job back from Martinez. Martinez has physical tools Gebbia can't match and that matters in this offense. He is headed to an offense more suited to his skillset. If a guy at another position decided to move on because they saw their skills weren't ideal with this program and they didn't habe much of a future here I wouldn't blame them. It is what it is. You are upset the backup qb is leaving. Oregon State fans are excited about a new qb prospect. Its all perspective.
