    Ole Man Williams is up against some heavy hitters. Between Harroz and Castiglione, you best bring your A Game negotiating skills from day 1.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they thought all of this amateur Hollywood “Negotiating” $h!t they’ve been pulling would actually work. Master negotiators crush it without so much as a word.

    I bet he ends up at USC.

    Unfortunatley for him, he’s leaving QBU, the most likely platform to win the Heisman and probably the most likely route to First Round payday.

    Best of luck Caleb and Dad. Hope this isn’t Maurice II

    Let’s hope Jaxson brings his talents to Norman and we can all move on by midweek.

Or is he sitting out the entire spring semester because he couldn’t get his shit together? Does that mean he can’t practice with his new team if he doesn’t go to school there? The timing of the school/football thing is interesting to me.
      even regular students can add classes up to a certain point. It used to be like a week or two after the classes start. but that was +20 years ago.

        Even if something crazy happens and he ends up back at OU, I won't trust him. I'll cheer when he makes great plays but I'll know that at the end of each season, he'll be negotiating for a better deal from OU or some other school.

        I know you always want the best players at every position, especially QB. But we've had unbelievably good QB play and still not won a national championship. Georgia just won a natty with a QB who is a gamer but nothing special. If our overall team improves - especially on defense - we'll be fine.

          He's going to USC.

          They're just going to make a spectacle of it, like a grand arrival. They're just likely tryin to iron out final details. Mario Williams wouldn't commit without Caleb.

              Lincoln will hand Caleb his very own personalized kettle bell for some real posterior chain explosiveness.

                I heard as part of the NIL Caleb will get to do this

                Comment




                  Are we sure it’s because there’s so much other entertainment in LA, or are people just not coming to games to avoid being subjected to this?

                    I want some satire. I want Caleb to come back. Then I want a QB competition between him, Gabriel and Dart. Out of that competition I want Caleb to be third string. I want Gabriel or Dart to just barely win every game without a blowout to keep Caleb off of the field. I want the fans chanting Caleb's name at the end of every game. Then have him transfer at the end of next year out of frustration and have to sit a year wherever he goes. Prima Donnas-Drama Queens. Who needs them? Look no further than the NBA.

                      I felt that way as soon as they landed a solid transfer about 12 hours after he crawled into the portal

                        You can start late. Usually a week or 2 lag.

                          Well I doubt his welcome could be better than LR's.

                            CW (or his dad) put himself in a horrible position...lots of undue pressure. Mr Williams obviously loves his son, but he's putting pressure on his kid to be an adult when he's just not yet. IMO, he's what's wrong with many parents these days.

                                Some sports parents parallel the behaviors of child star parents.

                                      Sorry, yes.Gabriel. Thanks for the catch. Or you can substitute Evers for Dart since he hasn't signed.

                                          Carey Murdock says he thinks OU allows a two week grace period to get enrolled. The semester started today. Also, when Caleb was a freshman he took 5 college and 6 high school classes simultaneously, so apparently he is superman in the classroom as well as on the field.

Granted some slack should be given thus year with all the coaching changes. But in the future if a player decides to test the waters of the portal Brent should sign his replacement immediately.
                                            You answered it yourself. OU will have to re-recruit players every year only if they swap coaches every year. The portal makes it easier (once) for players to leave, but the main reasons won't change. Playing time, friction with the position coach, home sick FR, etc. OU will in general be a better place to go than to leave.

                                              A question for this uninformed ignoramus: If Caleb were to return to OU would that negate his having to sit out a year if he should enter the portal again in a future year? Or would entering the portal this year count as a first-time portal entrance regardless.

                                                A player can go portaling every year if they want to, but they only get the penalty-free transfer as an undergrad once. Can transfer without penalty as a grad transfer too.

                                                  No penalty if you return to your previous school.

                                                  Edit: See ELC's post. Key word is "transfer".

                                                      Or better yet, text him “ I no longer have a scholarship available for you. Good luck to you and your family.”

                                                        Entering the portal is not the same as transferring. You can enter the portal as many times as you want without penalty.

                                                            Right, so you can potentially enroll early, flash freshman year, enter portal and renegotiate, return to school, play sophomore year, portal again, get max $ from one of the NIL factories, play there junior year, and have a free exit after one season if you graduate in three years as everyone seems to miraculously do now.

                                                            Portal is fine on its own. NIL would be fine with like half a dozen simple, enforced rules. Together, complete anarchy.

                                                              Pretty much, yeah. Which is why BV is putting work in on reinforcing the "team" element rather than the "me" element.

                                                              They need to re-implement the one season of lost eligibility penalty for transfers. Maybe not make them sit out a year, but make them lose a year of eligibility. Or, better yet, you lose a year of eligibility unless you sit out a year. That would be kind of a mix of the old and new rules.

Does that mean he can’t practice with his new team if he doesn’t go to school there? The timing of the school/football thing is interesting to me.
                                                                      Has until Jan 28th to start attending classes at sc. Last day to register.

                                                                      Comment

                                                                        I don’t believe Williams is prolonging his decision out of respect to any school, OU included. He can take his time because he is a coveted player at a coveted position being recruited by coveted programs.

                                                                        That doesn’t make him a diva, it makes him wise to the way of the college football world.

                                                                        If name, image and likeness income is part of the equation, so be it. If Williams’ next offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach is a bigger part of the equation, and I still think it is, even better.

                                                                        Williams knows all about USC’s Lincoln Riley in that respect. But why not sit down with UCLA’s Chip Kelly and see if Kelly thinks he can channel Marcus Mariota, a former Oregon pupil of Kelly’s, in Williams? Why not meet with Georgia’s Todd Monken given what Monken just did with Stetson Bennett and what Monken once did with Oklahoma State’s B. Weeden?

                                                                        For that matter, why not make sure you have heard it all from Jeff Lebby, Riley’s play-calling successor at OU? Seems entirely reasonable given Lebby’s track record at both Ole Miss and UCF.

                                                                        I still favor Riley/USC in the derby, but I’m not at all surprised Williams is running the whole race.

                                                                        As for No. 1 pick speculation... Let’s slow that roll given what happened to Spencer Rattler last season.

The OU date was yesterday, so does that mean OU is done with the portal for a while? But it could be these cutoff dates are a bit flexible if someone is really good at football.

                                                                              USC would have got LiaR, his staff & both Caleb & Mario.

                                                                              Oklahoma would have got Brent, his staff & both Dart & Trigg.

                                                                              I believe we won this trade. :) lol
