Given that coaches do not actually have to grant a transfer (though they almost always do and should do) do you think that RR had a conversation with Threet where he tried to convince him to stay? Or, did he accept it straight out thinking (as some say) that although Threet is a gamer and has potential, that he would never really fit into the spread, and therefore it was best for M and Threet that he move on?
I'm in the camp that says he would have tried to talk him out of it. As a coach, knowing that you cannot count on a freshman QB, particularly before even seeing him in an official practice, it would be short-sighted to encourage him to go. Speculative thoughts?
