Pass, kid is not a good locker room fit in my opinion.

 

Besides, he made the Texas D look good when he played amd they were awful.

Is he really a bad locker room fit though? The only negative I've seen from him was this season... and the entire OU fanbase sold him out early. 

I mean I'm being completely honest when I felt like the Rattler bench was too much. Yes he made Texas look good, but Texas had his number, they also had film. But don't think I forgot the return from being benched last year. He went off against Texas. Caleb Williams fizzed out once GOOD teams had some film on him. Just so happens he popped in the game against Texas with no game plan to stop him.

I stand by the fact I think Rattler will shine at whatever program he goes too, especially if they have a great QB developing coach.

Norman started the Caleb Williams chants against Nebraska, then they really got notice against West Virginia. 3 games into the season. How do you do that to your Heisman hopeful QB after not even 2 bad games? What mental effects do you think that has on a sophomore QB running your offense? 

I'm glad Texas didn't do that when Vince Young had some rough starts. His FR and SO years started off very rocky. Gotta give your QB some chance to fight through it. It would be heck to be having a rough game and go sit on the bench and listen to the crowd chant that they want another QB.

Yes, he is a bad locker room fit. He is a Tate Martell 2.0

OU fans weren't calling for Caleb just because Rattler struggled, it was because Rattler thought of himself and talked about himself like he was Baker, Kyler, or Jalen just because he was QB1 at OU when he's not in the same realm as them.

We'll have to agree to disagree. Norman gave up on Rattler way before he gave up on them. The most negativity I saw from Rattler came way after weeks of scrutiny. Martell comparison is definitely a stretch. Martell was all mouth, no action. Rattler has the talent, and he's proven it. 

It's called being spoiled. 5-star QB being backed up by a 5-star QB. Williams might have been all that when he was winning, but I saw a totally different QB Saturday. He was BEAT way before he stepped back on the field for those last 2 drives against OSU. Anyone can be a fierce competitor and a team player when they're hitting it out of the park. It's what you do when you're down and out that shows what you're really made of.

Just my opinion. We will see though. I don't think Rattler is a bad kid,  and I definitely don't think he's a Tate Martell. Rattler won't get another chance at OU, and he knows that. He could have transferred at any point during the season but didn't. Martell transferred after 2 weeks of competition with Fields.

Yeah, and there's also a lot of "extra-curricular" stuff that went into this from boots on the ground in Norman. Stuff that still hasn't made it to the message boards and Tweets. But the hangers-on/fans were willing to let it slide until his on-field performance tapered off.

There's also serious questions about the playcalling, but that's for a different thread.  ;)

Rattler has a very good arm, but saying he has proven his talent is quite a stretch when he just got benched for a true freshman.

Interesting take. Martell stayed the whole year and transferred when Fields came in. He didn't have another chance at OSU. Rattler stays the whole year and is transferring because of Williams. How is that any different? Lol

Norman gave up on Rattler because Rattler only cared about Rattler.

This begs me to ask... Do you think Riley had been in talks with SC for some time? I heard reports that they were chatting back in August. The reason I ask is because this year Riley just seemed over it, and maybe that was a reason for the inconsistent play throughout the year..?🤔
