RE: Minshew Leaves ECU to Attend to Family Issues
I am only actually concerned about is there a real family issue and if not who lied about there being one.

As we said on the 247 board, a family issue could be a million things. A lie didn't have to be told.

That press release made it sound like that "family issue" was something serious. Someone is lying about all this, not sure who yet, but whoever is a scum bag. Minshew is going to be a graduate, so he didn't need to make up any excuse to leave he was well within his right to just tell Mo to pound sand. At the same time though I don't see why Mo would be stupid enough to release a statement like that if he knew he just left cause he didn't want to be at ECU anymore.

It all seems logical to me... Minshew has family issue, leaves the Pirates, then surveys the landscape for playing opportunities closer to home.

Tuscaloosa is only a 2.5 hour drive from Brandon, MS.

This is my line of thought except for the fact Alabama doesn’t need another QB (wanting is a different story) and he wouldn’t get playing time there. There is the whole Saban’s ego might’ve got bruised when Ahlers said he was staying committed to ECU but no way he would sign and then start him out of pure spite when he knows it’s Championship or bust.

If I was Minshew and I truly left for family reasons I would look towards UAB, Southern Miss, or South Alabama. Close to home but more chance at playing.

Well, I don't know what the QB situation is at those schools, and he very well may be checking them out as well. He hasn't enrolled at Alabama yet, AFAIK.

He won't play at Alabama over what they have. Perhaps he wants to go someplace where he will get more exposure via connections to coaching staffs. Perhaps he just wants the experience of a football factory versus playing at a South Alabama. There are worse things than being a backup in Tuscaloosa.

RE: Minshew Leaves ECU to Attend to Family Issues
We're likely going to miss a bowl again next year with or without good QB play and he aint going to the NFL. So he can sit here and start on a terrible team, with an even worse coach, surrounded in turmoil all season and when 90% of ECU fans are already dubbing Holton Ahlers as the 2018 savior, or he can go sit the bench for one of the best coaches in college football history and get a front row set to the SEC West every weekend.

Not exactly a tough choice. As much as I love my school, we are a complete joke right now and I can't blame him.

IIRC from my quick searches USM has 2 RS SRs and 4 sophomores (not sure if any redshirted last season since it was a 2017 roster). South Alabama seemed set but I think he would be better than what they have. UAB had some older guys but they just restarted and again I think he would be better than what they have.
