Football, Kelly Bryant, Paul discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
Transfer quarterback world, obviously, the eyes are going to go immediately to Oklahoma Norman dec-, Jalen hurts and what he can do with that Oklahoma offense and Ohio State. These are the usual suspects. I'm very interested to see what Kelly Bryant can do it, Missouri. They're bringing back a lot of talent on that offense. We know a great backfield. Maybe one of the best in the SEC next year a guy and Kelly Bryant who's a proven winner at Clemson. And Derek Dooley. Who I think it did some things to really help drew lock in this most latest season for him with Missouri. I think it's a big year for Barry Odem accompany around there, and I'll be very to see between them and maybe Washington with Jacobson going out there as well. A team that I think underachieve by their standards in the last couple of years with Browning at the helm in a pack twelve that's wide open. And quite frankly needs to make statement this season. We we've seen such a such confusion in turmoil. You mentioned some of them with the transfer. Puerto you. You are not that far removed from having played the game. What are your thoughts on where we currently stand with the players ability to transfer easier? Maybe not as easy as it should be but easier than it used to be. Yeah. I think it's a big step forward. And first and foremost, I always look at it from a place of the player and the rights that players should have in college football world where the coach movement is so frequent and so jarring for a lot of these kids the statement for when I was getting recruited Paul was always. Well, you commit to the school. And you commit to the program you'll commit to the coach we all know that's a line of Boll and we've been fed that for far too long. You are committing to these coaches, and what they can offer most of these guys as an opportunity to not only get on the field early, but have a chance at playing in the next level. And so I think this is twofold one it allows players a better chance to do that overall. But to for us as general college football fans when you look at the kind of quarterback just look at the quarterbacks who are in the transfer portal. We're all on Clinton's team last year who are now going. Be starters, potentially at other schools. You are spreading more of the talent around college football that would have had to wait like those Southern Cal teams from the early two thousands where. Yeah, you'd have a quarterback wait his turn play for your and then go to the NFL. Now, we get to see all of these four and five star caliber quarterbacks who were stockpiled that these major schools spread out throughout college football. And as a result. I think the sport gets better. I think we get more of a product from having these guys spread around to these different schools might before you go you brought in some of these the these new entities. But is there a team out there that you're watching right now, maybe not on the front row of the the college football playoff picture of which we always see Ohio State, Oklahoma, obviously, Alabama, Clemson, etc. Or someone you're keeping an eye on that you think might maybe a little bit onto under the radar screen. You know what Paul for me right now? It's still a little early to to say that maybe someone's going to jump what I'm very. Interesting just because we seem to have the same conversation every year around the group of five and for so long. It's been UCS cross to bear. But I'm very interested in what they're building in Cincinnati right now, they're bringing back a lot of excuse me. A lot of talent on that team one that had a top five defense by most metrics in the NCWA can that Cincinnati team in the ACC, maybe make some noise. Kennedy m- like Houston that we know had the big splash higher of the offseason recruiting Dana Holger Sohn away from power five school. I'm very interested to see now that you know, that you see of bubble burst to an extent against LSU. I'm still not willing to say that that's a total loss for them considering the circumstances with the group of five does next season in going forward as they continue.
