On today's Pardon My Take… MAX DUGGAN! The Quarterback for the TCU Horned Frogs joined Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter in-studio ahead of tomorrow night's Heisman Trophy Ceremony to discuss his team's epic season, the College Football Playoff, and much more.
If you know one thing about Pardon My Take and their guests, it's that they are never afraid to do their best to get a headline out of someone. And in this interview, that was no different. A big topic in the world of college football this week has been the giant number of student-athletes who have entered the NCAA transfer portal. Was this a thought on Duggan's mind? It was worth an ask, and here is how that exchange went…
Mr. Cat: Do you have a year of eligibility left?
Max Duggan: Mhmm.
Mr. Cat: Are you staying? Do you want to announce it now?
Max Duggan: I don't know yet. I don't know what I'm doing yet, you guys can help me out and pick for me.
Mr. Commenter: Do you want to declare something?
Max Duggan: It's gonna be like Bortles [announcing his retirement on the show].
Mr. Commenter: Yeah, are you retiring? Are you retiring from the portal?
Max Duggan: I don't know what I'm doing yet.
Mr. Cat: Well, you're not going in the portal…
Max Duggan: Oh no, no, no, no, no. Yeah, I'm not going in the portal, no.
Mr. Commenter: Okay, that's our announcement then. Max Duggan has officially announced he will not be entering the transfer portal.
There you have it, folks. You heard it from Max Duggan himself: he will NOT be entering the transfer portal. Will he be staying at TCU or declaring for the NFL Draft? Only time will tell.
It's always cool having an AWL on the podcast, best of luck to Max this weekend at the Heisman Ceremony and later this month in the College Football Playoff!
