I think Chad "Swag" Kelly needs to transfer schools

[4]

I am in no way disrespecting him, but honestly I highly doubt he wins the job over Stoudt at this point. He has worked extremely hard and I don't think he will take being number 2 well (as evident by him getting in our coaches faces today during the game). I think it would be best for both parties for him to pursue his dreams at a different school that fits him better. The other thing going against him is that even if he stays and proves that he may deserve a shot next year for the starting role, watson should be our qb of the future leaving Kelly as a back up his entire career. I believe there are a lot of school back in New York that he could start and excel at while also being closer to his uncle who is going through hard times at the moment. Best of luck to him but I just don't see him at Clemson in the fall....

Be careful what you wish for. Chad has a lot of passion.

Chad does have passion...but so did Mike Bellamy. The problem is focusing this passion and energy into the betterment of the TEAM not for the betterment of ONESELF. That is why I have TONS of doubts about Mr. Kelly.

that he is 20 or 21 years old? Im sure all of you were saints when you were that old. Was he out of line, yes, but saying he should transfer is ridiculous. If Stoudt goes down who will take his place? Idk the extent of Watson's injury, but we have three QB's that could be the starter, some schools don't even have ONE! Be Grateful.


It's not like people are saying "good riddance." More that

if Kelly really wants to be a QB getting lots of time on the field, he may be better off somewhere else at this point.

His frustration no doubt is partly due to the fact that he is in a 2/3 way race to even play. At another school that pressure could be taken off. Since he is not yet mature enough to put his mind over his emotions and get through it, a better option seems to be to remove that pressure. Just my view.

I agree with you 100% Smiling Tiger. I also think that he was frustrated because of his very poor performance today.

has tallent. I love that kind. Don't think for a minute that he can't be broken and made to fall in line. He will be okay.

Yeah. Just because he had discipline problems in high school, and wrote an arrogant letter to one of Clemson's QBs before arriving, and got in coaches' faces in one of last year's blowouts, and got in coaches' faces today doesn't mean that this kind of attitude is a habit or anything.

I was thinking that he may just guarantee that the coaches decide to let Watson play rather than redshirt this year. He needs to exercise a little self control.

I was thinking the exact thing coming home from the game today.


I really think he will when he doesn't get a lot of PT this

season. Obviously I don't know the kid personally, but I've never liked what I've heard about him, and I've always been surprised that he garnered so much support on tigernet. There's a difference b/t being competitive and confident and what Kelly is, which is more cocky, arrogant, and defiant than anything.


Johnny Manziel was cocky and arrogant

but he won a heisman, and was a born winner. You guys want to beat South Carolina, then that's the kind of attitude we need. Not mouthing off to the coaches, but I wouldn't mind a backhanded slap to South Carolina from Chad every now and then. and please don't give me the "we are better than them" speech, because they are whooping our ### right now, and we aren't. I know the guys with the orange colored glasses are going to TD this but idc. you guys are idiots if you want Kelly to transfer.

Chad Kelly is no Johnny Manziel....


Manziel is high IQ winner who beat ALA ... but your post

is interesting in that SOS could create some fire if he picked up Kelly based on Kelly and our coaches mutually parting ways. Real long shot but interesting contrarian scenario.

TAMU didn't have a Stoudt to fall back on or a Watson


Posted: Apr 12, 2014 9:44 PM
 

So there was a lot more tolerance for his bad boy behavior. But even then, Sumlin sat Manziel down more than once for his "problem" attitude during his time at TAMU. He was far from perfect and his problems didn't get completely masked by his performance.


For every Manziel, there are all kinds of arrogant bums


Posted: Apr 12, 2014 10:00 PM
 

The big difference is Manziel can back it up. Kelly hasn't earned that yet.


When you put yourself in front of Clemson...thats the end

and today, by arguing with OUR coaches, Kelly showed me I do not believe he is part of US. I hope I am wrong, but I'm 99% I am not.
