At the speed of things, we might not have a day without the latest news until July.
Word of the day: Pandiculation.
TATE ON THE MOVE. The big problem with Tate Martell entering the transfer portal is that he can extract his name and return to the state of Ohio, if he wishes.
But based on his recent changes to social media, I'm going to go on a limb and say it will not happen.
He went through and removed everything on Ohio State, changed his position from "Columbus, OH" to "Las Vegas, NV", and changed his biography to "Quarterback at …"
Even its most recent sequences are quite indicative, and two of those schools were among the contenders reported by my friend Jeremy Birmingham.
So Tate if he's gone and I'm selfishly upset about it. Not because I'm worried about Justin Fields as the quarterback holder of Ohio, because I think the Buckeyes will be more than good.
No, I'm worried about this because by relocating, Tathan is depriving us of an absolutely legendary quarterback battle that has seen shots fired before one of them even goes to campus.
I needed it. I needed to write it for the next nine months. Now what the hell are we going to talk about? Football?
In any case, I wish Mr. Martell all the best. As I said in these Skull Sessions, I was in his corner before even having an offer from the Ohio State and claiming he would be a great player here, with a colleague I see as a non-transfered generational talent .
Now Tate will probably look for an uncomfortable renouncement for immediate admissibility, and we'll see if he can get it, but it seems he definitely does not get the help of the notorious Tom Tom's abandonment guru.
Tom Mars, who is Fields' lawyer on his waiver request and has represented many others in similar situations, will not do the same for Martell: He told me: "I'm not representing Tate Martell, and I'm not going to do anything on your behalf. "

THE ORIGIN OF TATHAN. I feel like letting you go. I knew Tate Martell's birth name was "Tathan" for months, and it seems that she is hiding that information from the masses.
I sincerely apologize and, like my olive branch, I give you the origin of his name.
From the Las Vegas review diary:
Tafi Martell was six months pregnant and had not decided a name for her first child when she noticed "Tate" in the credits of a film and suggested it to her husband.
But Al Martell, a former Fresno State wrestler, wanted his future war champion to have a name of two syllables.
"I told my wife," When announcing a name, you need to exaggerate the name, Tate is too short, "said Al Martell. "So, that's how Tathan was born."
Tathan Martell's fighting career quickly vanished, and when he started playing football at age 7 he was a third-row left striker.
Damn it, I've never really thought about how my blogger's name will sound when read by online scholars. I guess it's something I have to consider.
KYLER> DWAYNE? It is said that Kyler Murray has leaned to enter the NFL Draft, and given the guaranteed money for the baseball that would have passed, he probably would not have done it if he had not believed it would be the best.
With how notoriously weak this quarterback class, I buy it. But some people even believe that he – not Dwayne Haskins – should be the No. 1 quarterback this spring.
Trevor Sikkema of TheDraftNetwork.com made a long comparison and reached this conclusion:
Ultimately, I think these two will be the first two quarterbacks selected in the NFL Draft 2019, and I think they will both go into the Top 10. But, if you're asking me to choose a winner in the debate between Haskins and Murray, and basically who will my QB1.
It's Kyler Murray.
This is certainly an interesting step that we can revisit in a few years.
I'm a fan of Kyler Murray. I would adore him as my quarterback, especially in college games, and I think guys like Patty Mahomes have shown that it is not necessary to be a traditional dropback, pocket passer to be successful in the league.
But Haskins is a damn prototype.
THE SPARTY TRUFFLE. In the midst of the drama of Tathan Martell's transfer portal and before some awaited coaching news from the State of Ohio, I saw a tweet that Michigan State was making a short press conference in the afternoon.
Now, they are generally not called spontaneous press conferences, for no reason. Unless you are the state of Michigan.

They literally called a press conference to explain that they were keeping all of their offensive trust in the brain that only designed two touchdowns in their last four games, both against Rutgers.
But at least they have reshuffled their work!
People, Sparty could never score again.
ZEKE MAKE THE THINGS OF ZEKE. One of the first things I wrote on this site was a piece of how the violent Ezechiele Elliott is ballless.
Almost four years later, I write many more words online, and it is still extremely violent without the ball.
Scott Linehan: Zeke probably had 5 of these games in the state of Ohio. … I said we were going to the old school college right here. He is about to run this game. And he was all-in. He did not go in there embarrassed. He entered there and frickin brought as he does every time he plays. pic.twitter.com/sO4jaOT1ls

If I was running football, I would like Zeke as my main blocker. It is one of the few ways I could survive.
