could will actually play 2 more seasons? (covid year + grad transfer?)

Yes, and unlike the players who were denied eligibility this year, he could transfer twice and not lose eligibility. He has a grad transfer available and a one time transfer available, they are different.
I don't think this is correct. I guess he could, but would have to redshirt and only play 4 games.  4 years of standard eligibility plus a Covid year.

I hope people are still nice to Will when he's a starting QB in the Big 10 next year.
Whoa, whoa, whoa what?

He's done here, for sure, he's pretty much said as much without being explicit about it. He's either going to the draft or the Big 10. I think there's a chance he's selected to the Senior Bowl, looking at the QBs on their watchlist. If he gets picked, like Sinnott and Beebe, he's getting drafted.

Guess I didn't realize.  Hope whatever he does works out for him, seems like a good dude.  Wish he was happy here.
I think he is happy here.  It's our idiot fans who are not happy with him here.

He's definitely happy here, and his brother is coming, doesn't mean he won't transfer though.

I just hope he doesn't have to end up at Nebraska. Think that would not end well.

I remember that Will came here because CK coached Carson Wentz.

Wherever Will goes, I hope he's coached well and has the receivers needed to throw like he does.

No joke, he could absolutely lead ND to the playoffs.

I can't think of a better landing spot than ND tbh.   They are loaded with offensive skill players and their OL has to be at least as good or better than what he had here.

Will Howard the last year and a half has been a good college quarterback. I'm sure that Notre Dame's defensive minded coach is looking for a game manager/leader.

You think Will is a game manager?

It’s my guess that he knows he isn’t the best QB on the team. He’s not dumb.

I think that's what he'll be asked to do at Notre Dame.  He's been good the last year and a half, but I don't think he'd be asked to make a bunch of plays with his arms/feet there.

He was absolutely the best QB overall this year. Might not be next year though.

Will Howard is anything but a game manager imo. He's a gunslinger.

If he can land a starting job at a blue blood program, it is by far his best shot at a high NFL draft grade. If he stays he risks getting beaten out by Avery and buried in the depth chart.

It’s a completely logical decision. This year was Howard’s best shot at making a splash at KSU and it never fully happened.

No, it's not 100% though it's likely. No one is reporting anything, it's all speculation. He's going to try to get draft info too.

and to think it's all because some people were mean on twitter in october or whatever

What in the world? This isn't even remotely true. Am I just missing obvious sarcasm or something? This fan base has lost its collective mind.

Will's feelings were never hurt by K-State fans. If they were he's never expressed any sadness or anger with K-State fans. This talking point needs to stop, it's perpetuating a mistruth and is giving people license to unnecessarily be crap heads. Dude has been nothing but straight up. If people want to criticize his on field play, fine, I guess, but the character assassination on his was out was predictable, I called it in this very thread, but total bullshit.

This is accurate.  I think it's clear he won't be given a fair shot next year to be our starter.  Analyze some of the BB's depth charts, figure out which one gives you best shot to be the guy and then go get a fresh start.
