    No way we'd want to risk putting our star holder in at QB, too risky.

    Not an in state player, but definitely has Husker connections. Joe Burrow, grad transfer? Pure rumor from a friend that he could possibly be on track to graduate summer '18. No idea if he would want to transfer, but if so, would have two years eligibility. Maybe I'm just dreaming......

    pretty sure that this is tongue in check humor, but also pretty sure Darlington will never play QB ever again. :Bananalazy:

    From the Ohio State fans I've heard from, it appears that Haskins is next in line (which as a Maryland resident I am happy he's going to start since he spurned the Terps). They are also saying that Martell will probably be the backup as the coaches are raving about him.

    Joe Burrow is a stud and could start for a lot of teams. I didnt know he had a chance to graduate early, but it appears that might be in his best interest.

    Yeah, but could Frost give him an example of a QB who transferred and was able to have success after initially spurring that exact school they would be transferring to?!?! This isn't as simple as R. Wilson switching conferences.

    How many years of eligibility does he have left at this point in his college career? And who, is really going to take that chance on him? It was definitely one of the classiest things that Pelini did, honoring his scholarship offer. I'm pretty certain that he wont see the field as a QB again, definitely not in a Husker uni.

    JMPO, but if those three coaches are retained, which I think they should be, then you keep most of this class in tact.

    I could see Frost trying to make him the class QB.

    Actually that's a pretty good point. And that's a lot of our high profile guys too.

    I'd actually be a little surprised if Frost didn't keep a guy or two off this staff. We've talked a little before about how difficult it might be to find a spot for Keith Williams since Frosts OC also coaches the WRs, but Donte and Parrella make a lot of sense. Neither are Riley guys and both bring a lot to the table.

    Those two could get Frost up to speed a bit on the current personnel, their recruiting needs and their board overall, some of the younger guys possibly redshirting who they have high expectations for. That sort of stuff.

    It's interesting, Benning just brought this up today on the radio. Sometimes coaches like to know what personnel is currently on the team, sometimes others like to find out on their own. Banker specifically pointed out Banderas and went back to watch film after seeing him in person because he didn't get how he wasn't dominating with how athletic he is. I do think the continuity thing is a big deal to help with a transition. These kids know things need to change, but some familiarity with one or two people could go a long ways. I think Donte would stay, but would Keith Williams stay in an offense like this? I don't know.

    Isn't Keith Williams' son Keyan a Jr? Perhaps K Williams may want to stay a year no matter what the system to finish with his son? Just a thought.
