saw on twitter since osu he's like 68% with 12 tds and 1 int, which should have been a long completion not a pick. this individual season turnaround is just as ridiculous as his first few years and then last year turnaround. the comeback kid

How he has responded to the TTU game is incredibly impressive.  It's what I thought we would get at the start of the year.

I very much blame the game plans in the three losses for how he looked.

Also he was gimpy as hell at Missouri and probably shouldn't have been playing at the end

Will’s a winner. I think I already ate crow in this or the Fire Klieman thread last year but will iterate again how wrong I was about him. Of course I’m excited about the future with AJ and Will obviously needs to make the decision in his best interest, but no complaints from me if he elected to return next year.

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

Will Howard, QB - Penn St.

Would be a heck of a story.

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.

I will (unless it’s at Nebraska in which case I’ll be very mean)

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.

Will Howard has grad transfer written all over him and the B10 west is collectively salivating.

You're allowed to play forever and immediately but you might have to sit out a couple of games while your coach publicly bitches about the NCAA.

If Will sticks around for another two years, Avery is gone.

Guess I didn't realize.  Hope whatever he does works out for him, seems like a good dude.  Wish he was happy here.

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.

You have idiot fans everywhere, but I get it.  Bummer.  Hate to see a guy who won (at least) one dr.pepper and set the TD record finish elsewhere.  I'm as big an Avery guy as anyone, but damn.

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.

You're reading way too much into Ben Sinnott's little comments.

I think the coaching staff sees Avery (next year) being close enough to Will Howard's ability that they'll be ready to move on.  Additionally, developing Avery now will put us in the best position for the CFP beyond next season.

Meanwhile, Will's season is putting him in football purgatory where he's pretty good but also not a likely draft pick.  The NFL will love his smarts and size though so who knows.  If Will wasn't happy here, though, he would've left long before now.  Dude's stuck it out through a lot.

It seems like there's already plenty enough of Howard on film that if he's not getting drafted this year, it's hard to imagine him getting drafted next year. If I'm Will and I don't think an NFL team would pick me up after this year, then I just want to start for whatever team has the best shot at getting into the CFP.
