    From the few games I have seen him play he just does not look comfortable out there. Did he really deserve to be rated #1? Trevor Lawrence looks like he belongs, Justin looks nervous.

    Does he transfer out? When asked to deny here's what he said:

    Fromm has proven he should be the starter. Hard to say if Fields is overrated with the limited body of work, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him transfer. It’s become the norm these days...especially at the QB position.

      I suspect his playing time has a lot more to do with the high level of play from Fromm, but that doesn't necessarily change his perception of being there.

      So, no, I wouldn't be shocked if I woke up tomorrow to news that he was transferring.

        He should have stayed committed to Ped State. The job was definitely his for next season with McSorley graduating. I wonder if his daddy will pull a Cecil Newton on the next school begging for his services.

        Besides, Fromm seems to fit the Kirby game manager mold better. You wonder why Fields would choose to go to a Bama-lite offense. He's a better fit somewhere like here.

        Love for him to transfer out of conference. Hard to tell if he’s a bust at this time, but Lawrence definitely has asserted himself as the top player in last years class. With the Dawgs losing some top assistants to other jobs, him transferring would be the icing on the cake. Maybe the beginning of a crack in Kirby’s foundation that’s he’s built there.

          I'm just not seeing the arm talent. Maybe somebody can fix his throwing motion and footwork.

          I watched his highlight tapes when he came out and, I thought he was highly overrated.

            These kids are just freaking stupid. Could he not see what was going on with Fromm? He had a boat load of teams that were dying for his talent and listened the horseshyt coming from Kirby. Take a look at your HBC decision making yesterday and ask yourself if this is a guy that can win a championship at any level. He a freaking moron and chokes.

              Unless Fromm gets injured or drafted, don't think he stands a chance at starting for 2 seasons

                Kids a ball player. I really can’t judge a guy of spot duty behind an all SEC caliber QB. Hes got all the talent in the world, it’s just hard to show that at QB when your not “the guy” yet. That being said I hope like hell he transfers

                  From the highlight tapes I saw, it looked like he had two or three very good WR's and he just chucked a lot of balls and they went and got them.

                  He fell into the trap that most recruits and analyst did they thought the success of Nick Saban was due to Kirbys defense. But just like any other asst. coach of his he is still second best.

                    I too think Emory has looked better than Justin. I realize it's small sample but that's what I've noted.
                    What happened to that Eason fellow ?

                    I don’t think anyone ever thought this.

                        I thought it was all due to Butters' and Nussdrunk's offense. Lil Nick hasn't won a championship since then, I was told.
