On Thursday afternoon, Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell’s name popped up in the transfer portal, suggesting Martell was exploring a transfer from the university. That news come on the heels of former Georgia quarterback Justin Fields’ decision to transfer to Ohio State.
After the Martell news dropped, Georgia fans all said the same thing about Ohio State’s quarterback carousel. The Bulldogs fans are glad Dwan Mathis doesn’t have to “walk into that mess,” as one Georgia fan described it.
Georgia and Kirby Smart flipped Mathis from Ohio State before the Earlier Signing Period. The team likely knew it was losing Justin Fields and needed a replacement – and that replacement came from none other than Ohio State.
Here’s what a few Georgia fans had to say.
Dwan Mathis I'm happy for you.

Georgia fans can sit back and relax knowing Jake Fromm is their starting quarterback, while Ohio State fans are gearing up for a great quarterback race between Fields and Martell.
