Okay, I’ll make an exception in this case.

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.

    Meyer is gone now. What’s that excuse worth now?


  2. Might require some exorcism performed…or at least a ouija board session or two……

    So, a college student accepted to ohio wasn’t smart enough to see what a dick Corch was until last August? His lying and covering up for bad behavior had been well known, nationally, for over a decade. Waiver appeal denied (but checking for admission oversights regarding Martell.)

    Martell’s main recruiter was Zach Smith. Can a sudden lack of dicks on staff be considered reason to transfer?

    Since the enemy of my enemy is my friend, I hope Martell gets the waiver. He probably deserves it more than my enemy.

      I agree. We need Miami to get up to speed to stop any UF recruiting momentum and to take control of the weak-ass ACC coastal before tech can get any on-field momentum.
