he dragged it out because he was afraid Gebbia would transfer.. when he thought the transfer window had closed, he announced his QB competition winner.. just because he gave equal reps doesn't mean anything.. Frost knew who was going to play before spring ball. Frost promised AM the job when he recruited him. That is how he got his commitment here. Had Frost managed the Gebbia situation after spring ball and named Martinez the starter then, it might have led to Gebbia staying, but the fact that Frost was playing him, made Gebbia's father come up with an alternate plan because at that point, they all knew it was a farce.
