Holcombe? We barely knew him
« on: October 01, 2019, 09:11:52 PM »
Large QB John Holcombe announcing on Twitter that he’s entering the transfer portal. Weird. Maybe he doesn’t like alternate uniforms.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Is he the stud QB from Houston, or is that another backup?

If this is true then I am calling for Clitz Hymen’s resignation IMMEDIATELY. I had super high hopes for Holcombe. Think he could’ve been really good if properly developed. Also, he gave us one of the best Qatt bloops in a long time this year against Bowling Green.  Actually it was a two-parter:
1) He enters the game in the first half. I remark to my friend who was watching with me, “This guy’s supposed to be some kind of freak athlete.” Holcombe promptly fumbles the very routine snap.
B) Later in the game after Buick Skylark is done for the day, Holcombe uncorks one of the best long bomb overthrows I’ve seen in ages. I mean this thing pretty much ended up in the lockerroom. Someone find me a vid. He Uncle Rico’d that crap.

When I read it I said noooooo in my head, but he doesn't seem like the style of QB that Klieman has been successful with. It also doesn't help that he's dropped two snaps already.

They better put Baby Sisco in 400 pounds of bubble wrap. This season might be looking real 2015ish quickly. Sammy Wheeler playing QB.

Nick Ast waiting in the wings. Stud qb coming from PA next year. Pipeline is good.

Maybe Herron is a giant stud. Also they had Holcombe catching some passes in pregame last week.

they had to use 2 timeouts last week when he was in the game for like a handful of plays, humbled another snap.  he was a snyder recruit, so like mir said, probably not a fit for klieman's offense.  Herron was also committed before Snyder left, so hope he's not next, i don't see him playing qb, especially since he was already practicing at wr in camp.  Hopefully he can play wr this year and stuff weber back in his locker.

Herron hasn’t taken a QB snap since spring.

I’m guessing he tweets a do-over once he realizes that he has lost this year of eligibility anyway. :confused:

He won't and why would he stay if he doesn't want to be here? He probably withdrew from his classes yesterday or today.

It does him no good to waste time playing a potential position he wants nothing to do with (TE, WR, Etc.), if his true passion is to play QB somewhere.

Well, I guess I assumed football players like playing football.  And I guess all that stuff about loving his teammates and rooting for the team is kindof bs.

Also, I might not want the last impression I leave on the field to be a cluster f of a fumble and two wasted timeouts in the few plays I was in.

All indications are that he is a moron.

you really can gauge a person by what they say about a 19 year old when that player leaves their favorite sports team

Why does this board like when people leave KSU? 

I've got no problem with a kid deciding to transfer.  Transferring four games in to a season is bad form.  Transferring four games into a season when you are not saving a year of eligibility is really bad form.  Posting about how you have "nothing but love" for the teammates you just quit on is just bs.

His transfer puts this team---and the teammates he professes to care about--in a serious bind.

I’m not sure if you watched the last few games, but I’m not sure the bind is all that serious tbh.

And people act like he’s just throwing a fit and storming off. I think it’s far more likely that after Saturday the coaches said he’d never start as a KSU QB but they were willing to try him at other positions. Dude probably just wants to be a QB.

He's the back-up QB!  He is one play away from being the starter on a P5 team this year.  The decision doesn't make sense, from his perspective or K-State's perspective.  Which is why people are assuming he is a throwing a fit and storming off.
