Tate Martell’s move to Miami this week is just the latest in one of college football’s unfortunate annual offseason traditions: transfers. Every FBS program can have 85 players on scholarship, the vast majority of whom think they’re good enough to be playing. With barely half of those guys even cracking the two-deep in any given year, frustration and a handful of transfers every year from every school is pretty much inevitable.
Joe Burrow’s possible transfer was a topic of conversation almost every day since he first admitted to thinking about it following last December’s Big Ten Championship Game. Burrow addressed the possibility again following the Cotton Bowl and more during spring football. As such, the coaches also had to address it.
It is safe to say that former Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow was going to transfer to a place where he felt he was likely to start. With him choosing LSU on Friday, that gives you a pretty good idea of what he believes the Tigers’ depth chart looks like at quarterback currently. But is he correct in his assumption? Probably.
Leadership can be defined a number of ways. When you really think about it though, you generally only have two types of leaders. On one hand, you have a leader who is simply a leader because of his or her position. It’s an appointed status. On the other hand, you can have a leader who, because of their actions, causes people to follow them.
