If he wanted to, Hicks could transfer again. The fall semester hasn't begun yet and I imagine a couple of P5 schools will still be looking for a QB in March/April/May.

I bet Ben would say otherwise.

I mean come on. Nobody is going to grad transfer without thinking they are going to start without competition. Chad definitely promised him the starting job.

There are tons of schools where Hicks could start but now he will probably get to exhaust his eligibility sitting on the bench. Have fun!



Is it also your belief that Morris said he was going to do absolutely nothing to address the gap left by the departure of qb2?


That could have easily been done with a JUCO, sure. But transfers with one year left who were starting at their current school don't transfer unless they know they will start.

Unless, of course, Hicks really doesn't want to play much anymore, and is happy about being a backup quarterback and then move into coaching.

Hicks has stated he went to UA and Coach Morris in order to “get to the next level”.

"Get to the next level" of all-time pick 6 rankings?

Whole new lifestyle. Levels, Jerry. Lots of pillows like ancient Egypt.

That's fair. If Hicks thinks he has that level of ability (to play professionally at some level), then I'm sure he will welcome SEC competition to see how he measures up. Reality check for either Mr Hicks or for all of us who don't think he is as talented as the numbers he posted at SMU. If he wins the starting job, survives a season in the SEC and finds a place where he can make a living playing the sport he loves, good for him.
