I don’t care how distasteful you find the current state of football transfers — tell me you wouldn’t have enjoyed this playing out publicly.
Former Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell was in the process of crafting a transfer waiver appeal last year while with the Buckeyes, citing Urban Meyer’s three-game suspension as a reason, multiple sources have told CBS Sports.
It is not believed Martell ultimately filed the appeal with the NCAA and may have been advised against it. Last season, Martell stayed for his redshirt freshman campaign as a backup for Heisman Trophy finalist Dwayne Haskins.
It’s not clear if Meyer’s suspension was the sole reason Martell considering an appeal. Meyer was suspended before the season for what the school called “insufficient management action” regarding former Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith.
Granting a transfer waiver because Corch is a dick seems like a slam dunk to me.
