Anyone need a QB?

Postby ShoelessJoe » Sat Dec 10, 2005 1:52 am

Apparently, the backup QB from Florida, Josh Portis, is transferring. He has listed a number of schools he wishes to attend (all non-SEC apparently) but the list hasn't been released outside the UF athletic department. Basically, he said that he is leaving because of a lack of playing time... I guess he expects to come into an SEC school and start as a true freshman, something very rare nowadays with the way defenses play... in the SEC especially.

Here is the article:

Anyways, he's a talented dual-threat QB with a strong running ability and probably (he wasn't tested much throwing) a good potential to throw.

It's not that big of news on a national scale, but I just wanted to get some people's opinions on if they think that this will be a growing problem with the changing of athletes nowadays... the TO effect if you will. Thoughts and opinions are greatly appreciated.

he had to know that he wasn't going to be the man right off the bat. i don't understand kids these days. oh well, it always seems that when guys like this transfer thinking they're going to be awesome somewhere else always seem to go to smaller schools and then you never hear from them again. only one i can remember off the top of my head is nate hybl, being a guy that went from one major d I school to another...and that's just because he played at OU while I was there. (transfer from georgia)

Brock Berlin transferred from Florida to Miami. He wasn't that great, though.

oh yeah, that's right. i knew there was more, but it's more like the exception than the rule.

I can think of about a billion successful transfers, most recently Brian Calhoun's transfer worked out pretty well for him.

I wonder why Portis transferred, Leak will be gone next year and he will get his shot. I suppose he was worried either Schaeffer or Tebow would move in and he would never get his shot.

Sounds like a momma's boy who is afraid of competition. I wouldn't want him on my team.

Yeah, I was thinking he was worried about Tebow too.

Well, he (or his mom, who apparently controls his life) claims that it has absolutely nothing to do with Tebow. That could easily be a blatant lie, but if Tebow was the issue I dunno why he wouldn't have just waited a few days to see if Tebow actually heads to UF. I mean, he made the decision on Friday, and Tebow announces on Tuesday, so it would've only been a couple days.

The Gators just wrapped up Tebow, this kid might have seen the writing on the wall.
