This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Quarterbacks will always transfer, so sign them when you can by ndgotrobbedin97
It should go without saying that QB is a unique position in terms of playing time. Therefore, you're always going to wonder about the guy languishing on the bench, and whether or not he is looking for a way out of his current situation if he doesn't get a chance to play. 5 years to play 4 is a ticking clock that every kid is aware of, especially when they burn one on the bench.
This isn't new. We can rattle off a bunch of names of guys who didn't get playing time at ND so they chose to go elsewhere---2 of them started at Ohio colleges just this season. Had Golson stayed the starter throughout this season, I would probably be wondering what Zaire was thinking given that Kizer's eligibility starts ticking next year (4 years) and Wimbush is likely to hit campus.
In this case, it's Golson that is more likely to leave. If he does, it's good for him, and probably good for Kizer. If he stays, it's great for ND.
Either way, this isn't some big surprise, as you're always going to have attrition at the QB position, as every school will. It simply shows why you need to sign one every year if you can.
