The Denver Post
BOULDER — He could’ve bailed. Steven Montez could’ve gone through his progressions, taken one long look at the college football landscape and told the Flatirons to eat his shorts. He could’ve hired an agent. Or a lawyer, the way Tate Martell did to force the issue. “I’ve never really understood the whole ‘transferring before you even got out on the field yet,’ ” Montez, the Colorado Buffaloes quarterback, said of Martell, former Ohio State signal-caller who last week was granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA after transferring to Miami over the winter. “(Martell) didn’t even give Ohio State a chance, in my opinion. Now was he doing what was best for him? Absolutely. And I wish him the best in the upcoming season. But I just never really understood that.” Or, for that matter, really considered it. “Nah, no chance, no chance,” Montez told The Post late last week at CU’s indoor practice facility. “I love Colorado. I love Boulder. And I want to stay here all five (years), without a doubt.” It’s a rare — almost refreshing — sentiment, especially given the temperature at the moment. Last April, the NCAA’s waiver directive was tweaked to allow consideration for immediate eligibility — ordinarily, a student-athlete has to establish a year of residence before being able to join a team at his or her new abode — if certain criteria were met. Among the apertures was “circumstances that are outside the student-athlete’s control and directly impact the health, safety and well-being of the student-athlete.” If the last bit sounds more than a little vague and open to all sorts of subjective interpretation, join the club. Once news of Martell’s instant eligibility hit the fan on Tuesday, some hailed it as the overdue ice-breaking on an era of quasi-free agency in college football. Others then countered that the circumstances were unique, and that the lawyering up was enough to convince the NCAA, the Buckeyes and new coach Ryan Day that Martell’s hill wasn’t the one to die on. Especially after Justin Fields had just parachuted from Georgia into the Day’s Buckeye program with a waiver of immediate eligibility under the same “well-being” clause. Of course, that loophole in the transfer rules also might be closing soon: Last month, the NCAA’s Committee For Legislative Relief said it was reviewing transfer waiver guidelines for 2019-20 and beyond. And the more ink Martell’s case gets, history surmises, the greater the chance at pushback. “I want the names of all those people (at the NCAA) that are deciding to do that,” longtime TCU coach Gary Patterson told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram last week, “so everybody knows their names when they ruin the game.” Until then, the transfer portal, where more than 400 names were listed on 247Sports.com’s tracker as of early Friday evening, remains the NCAA’s new free-wheelin’ frontier, the Wild West.  And yet here’s Montez, 6-foot-5 with an NFL frame, a votary on his third position coach and second head coach in three years, electing to turn in his holster and settle down. “I mean, it’s just a lot different now, because Tate Martell transferred and they let him play immediately,” said Montez, who threw for 19 scores with the Buffs last year and ran for four more. “If you’re going to do that, more guys are going to want to transfer. “It just makes common sense, I think, if you make the transfer rules that players can transfer and play immediately when they get there. I don’t see why some players wouldn’t want to transfer if they’re not happy within the situations they’re in.” For the record, Montez says he’s happy. Well, happy enough. “I think this offense, the one that we’re learning now, is more different than anything we’ve done in the past,” Montez said of new coordinator/quarterbacks coach Jay Johnson, who was hired in December. “The transition from (Brian) Lindgren to (Kurt) Roper was more of a smooth transition (a year ago), because the offense — it changed a little bit, but it didn’t really change very much. But coach Johnson is really getting us through this process very smoothly and helping us learn a whole lot.” They dissected film of Georgia last fall. And of Minnesota from 2016, Johnson’s last stop as an FBS play-caller, where then-Gophers quarterback Mitch Leidner was, like Montez, a big palooka who could really motor. The pistol looks and tight ends are new. The principles aren’t. “(The) concepts are very similar to last year, so the learning curve is not as drastic,” explained Darin Chiaverini, the CU wide receivers coach and ex-Buffs offensive coordinator. “Some of the calls are very similar, so he has some retention (of) what we did in the past. “There’s no question that Steven’s a really bright kid. We’ve just got to find a way for him to be more consistent this year, and then we’ll get over the hump.” Together. No wandering eyes. No lawyers. No regrets. “Looking back on it now, staying here was the best decision I’ve made, ever since I made the decision to come here,” Montez said. “Those were probably the two best decisions I’ve made.”

Triple Frontier (2019) boasts a talented and extremely good-looking set of actors, all of which have achieved massive star power with their filmography. Oscar Isaac has never disappointed me. He nails every role he is given. I still cannot forget how excellent Garrett Hedlund is in Mudbound. And I am still bummed that Charlie Hunnam did […]
