    I am just curious what is everyone’s perception of him if he never plays another down of husker football. Is he a quitter? A productive player on bad teams? An all time great? Do we think he has a bad attitude or did he bring it on game day as he took some nasty hits?

    Sad but true. He'll be missed big time and then likely forgotten
    OR...
    he comes back and likely shatters records.

    If he breaks all receiving records do we consider him a great being on 4-8, 4-8, 5-7, and whatever this team does?

    Paul Hornung won the Heisman and his Notre Dame team finished 2-8 that year..

    I really wonder what's going on with him. He's been away for long enough. I wonder if he is ready to get back into the swing of things. I also wonder if he's tired of football.

    1. He’s gonzo.
    2. He was a very good player for Nebraska.

    I think there is an argument that those records make him more deserving.

    Imagine if he had a Stanley Morgan type on the outside last year. Made it easier to get open. With the two big outside threats coming in this year, he could have a huge year.

    That being said, if he comes back I'll be surprised

    I was real hopeful he’d be back. Now, not so much. I agree with a few on this board but didn’t post in this thread. He will either come back and break those WR records or he will hang football up all together. With the one time transfer thing being shut down, the likely hood of him transferring goes way down. Just my opinion.

    JD will be missed and held in high regard years from now. I'm curious how you think Iowa will do this year? I'm not actually curious because nobody cares. Just saying.

    Martinez hung him out to dry way too many times. Can't blame the kid if he wants to move on from football. Tough for a kid his size.

    Frost will have to re-recruit him. Promise him that we’ll design plays where he’ll never have to go across the middle again. I’d say he’s tired of football though.

    Great player. We really could use him this year.

    My gut says he is gone. He took a beating last year. Tough kid. I wish him well.

    He's a slot receiver. Going over the middle and getting hit hard is the job.

    By far my favorite player. But AM2 just laid him out with the shots that he took. No one can keep on getting killed like that and have much of a career. I'd be re-evaluating my life if that kept happening. He is a warrior.

    My opinion is that no news is good news. I have a hunch that being away for this long will remind him of what he's going to be missing if he hangs em up.

    I agree with and could see that. You’d assume if he wasn’t coming back and hanging it up, we’d heard something by now. But who knows, maybe this is what Frost was going to announce the 15th at 5:15pm but it got changed. I honestly don’t know anything, again, I’m just guessing and taking a shot at it.

    I totally agree... but supposedly he’s tired of taking a beating, understandably.

    As long as he doesn’t play anywhere else and leaves due to injury, he’s not a quitter in my book.

    If he leaves and plays elsewhere, he’s a quitter and it’s a bad character quality to quit on your team.

    Hope he comes back if he’s healthy and ready to contribute.

    Racked up great stats as a good player on bad teams that had few other options. Probably missed more spring practices than he actually went through. I would not call him a quitter, but I would not defend him if someone else called him a quitter.

    But let’s say he has another 60 catches and 850 yd season. Holds all career records. Not going to put him in the same category of Johnny Rogers?

    That's for addressing that. I was wondering what happened to the 5:15 on 5-15.

    no clue about all that, let alone if we even tried or wanted Taulia. I could see the Speilman issue being addressed before we seen that happen. Again, just an opinion.

    Depends what is really going on. If he is really having depression and mentally issues as some are speculating. I think some things are more important than football and I wish him nothing but the best and hope he gets healthy. I would have nothing but respect for what he did here.
    If it is other things that have been suggested such as attitude and stirring the pot with creating divide in the locker room and now he is trying to jump ship. I think he will be remember in a bad light.

    He can't play anywhere else in 2020 at least. He would need to take a redshirt season. He's about 30 hours short of graduation.

    If he cited a mental health issue the NCAA would probably grant him immediate eligibility if he wanted to play for the tunnel rats.

    exactly it. Like some have pointed out and myself, you’d have to assume if he was going to try the mental health issue or what ever, you’d think it would have happened already or by now. Because the longer and longer this drags out, it will take that much longer for the NCAA to accept or deny his waiver request.

    But I seriously think the man’s football days are done and over with. I mean, there has been no Indication of him talking to Minnesota or any other team at this point and he definitely hasn’t put in for transfer yet either. Everything, at this moment and up to this point, points to him coming back or hanging it up. There’s a reason why all these other players have declared for the transfer portal or even have their next team picked out...and here we have JD Speilman, who hasn’t said a word about doing any of that up to this point.

    Spielman isn't going to the Terrapins if he decides to transfer. Try again.
