I don't believe in this. A lot of these kids are moronic. They make decisions for the worst reason. Coaches and parents should have influence until they leave the nest. After that, they can decide whatever they want....stay, transfer, etc...
Kid will like the colors and mom likes the academics.
DannyBoyCane thinks he's a Cane.
@dannyboycane13 nope, there's a chance we can still flip Collins. I think we will get him to flip to us. #CANE
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
It's fairly obvious. Arkansas offered momma a Tahoe. Miami came through with the escalade.
Wow what a bad Mom. At least Landon's Mom let him go to Bama, she just had a hissy fit nut taking the papers and running? What a dramatic POS.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
I love it. Mom knows best!
Sounds like enabling to me.
I'm 43 and I STILL listen and take my parent's advice on SEVERAL issues. It's called respect.
listening and taking advice =/= letting them make the decisions and you having to live with those decisions even if you disagree.
i do the same as you with regard to listening to my parents' opinions and taking their advice, but then i evaluate that advice (and any other advice i might have) along with MY opinion and make a decisions that's best for me.
these are kids, but they're not 4 year olds.
I completely agree with your statement as I do the same. However, many of these kids grow up in bad areas and have terrible influences. They NEED their parent(s) to help them in their decision along with their coach.
Don't confuse your wants and desires with your needs.
I want to shoot every asshole I come across. I NEED to accept the things I can control, ignore the things I can't and have the ability to know the difference.
hahahahaha thats like asking Miss Cleo where he ends up
no one in Florida does
and in this case that would seem to be a terrible parent.
Does Collins live with his mother?
Not that I know of... who does he live with?
don't kid yourself, the parents can be the thing these kids need to get away from as easily as anything else.
i have more than a few friends who are doing great despite their asshole parents.
i know next to nothing about this kid or his mom. first heard his name 2-3 days ago and only thing i've heard about his mom is this crap. but from the looks of things right now, she's not coming across as a beacon of wisdom right now.
The only reason he's going to Arkansas is because of the coach.
Yes or maybe he doesn't want to back up Duke Johnson.

Thats not why
I dunno what it's all I know he didn't want to be a Cane, his mum should let him go to Arkansas.
What's funny ?
That's not the issue here, dude. Do your parents make decisions for you? Did they decide where you were going to college?
Or maybe he doesn't want to playin in front of a crowd of 10 ppl or a team that might be sanctioned in a year or so..

I've heard he lives with his High School coach.
For some reason he doesn't live with his Mom.
Usually, those reasons are bad reasons.
So you say a lot of these kids grow up in a bad environment, but yet they need the PRIMARY contributor to said "bad environment" to help them make their decision? Seriously? Do you not see how helplessly myopic you are being?
Say this kids mom is a crackhead. Say she's the type of crackhead that would do something like.. oh i dont know... swipe LOI papers and run off with them in front of adults. Say she's a main contributor to a "bad environment" for Alex. Alex "NEEDS" this crackhead to help him make his decision on where HE will be going to school?
You're a clown.
