Situations are different. Over the years we've seen guys bolt but we've also seen guys stay. Reality is we were all just guessing with regards to whether or not Fields would bolt after not getting on the field enough, etc. Truth is we still don't REALLY KNOW (even though we kind of do).
I've seen some trolls online saying this is the difference between Saban, Dabo, and Kirby...the other guys play their best players, etc. Nonsense. Hurts lost his job with poor play. Lawrence was clearly the better QB at Clemson. Fields is talented but Fromm WON the job. I think it all comes down to Fields looked at the situation and figured Eason would likely be gone and he could beat out Fromm. He miscalculated.
I do wish the kid the best.
