Fans, media members react to Justin Fields-to-Ohio State transfer news
There was big news in the college football world on Friday morning, as former 5-star Georgia QB Justin Fields reportedly decided to transfer to Ohio State.
That led to a number of reactions, ranging from complaints about the NCAA transfer rules to a looming battle for the starting job with Tate Martell to funny Urban Meyer takes.
Yes, fans had a lot to say about the news, as did media members. Below, you can see some of the top tweets from Friday morning regarding Ohio State’s newest quarterback:
I wouldn't surprised if the whole damn transfer system breaks down with Justin Fields as the catalyst. You watch, he will get a waiver and the system as we know it will forever be changed.

The NCAA waiver system opened the door for kids who have the means to afford a smart lawyer to find loopholes. So the question you have to ask is, why put all these resources into such a meaningless bureaucracy? Just let kids move as they please.
