But yeah, I do get the appeal of a college team coming to a big city to play so that you don't have to drive 2-3 hours to get to a game. All the tradition and glamour is lost in the non-descript NFL stadiums, though, which sucks, as college football is the only good sport to go watch, in my opinion. But everyone can enjoy football the way they want and it's totally cool!

I think going into his sophomore campaign in 2014, given he threw for nearly 3,000 yards and had a 2:1 TD-INT ratio as a true freshman, he was regarded as one of the best quarterbacks in the nation. 

Athlon had him #6. https://athlonsports.com/college-football/ranking-college-footballs-quarterbacks-2014

NFL.com #8. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000352401/article/jameis-winston-marcus-mariota-are-top-qbs-to-watch-in-2014

And then, his offense got taken from him and well, yeah, we know the story.
