    Default What a Piece of Work

    First she steals the kid's thunder and rains on his parade on national TV and now she tries to scuttle his scholarship to Bama.

    Damn, Biotch, put your kid's happiness above your own self interest.

    When this all came up I stated my opinion on here that I didn't think she deserved a bashing for wanting her son close to home.....I have since changed my opinion. That winch is insane.

    Actually, this is not against NCAA rules...it's against the rules in Basketball. It's a bunch of sour grapes.

    No, but why in God's name getting someone's family member or friend a job is illegal in basketball and not football is entirely baffling.

    This woman is so stupid she probably is mistaking the scholarship the girlfriend has at Alabama for a job offer.

    This is the part of the story some LSU fans need to understand, but clearly don't get. Their reactions to this kids decision to commit to Alabama and the what happen to Jefferson after the national chanmpionship game have done tremedous damage to LSU. Many other athletes reacted to LSU's fans nasty tweets and face book comments in a negative manner. None of this has helped LSU in the recruiting arena at Dutchtown and around Louisiana. Also, what was the mother promised to get him to sign with LSU? Be very careful of what you accuse other programs.

    "The video clip went viral instantly. Sports shows replayed the strange moment ad nauseam. Four days later, the fervor hasn't died down. As the Cherokee that Collins rides in heads over a bend in the Mississippi, he pulls out his phone to show the tweets he's received. Many of them claim that his girlfriend, Victoria Lowery, who also plans to attend Alabama, influenced his decision. Holding the phone warily, as if it might detonate, Collins reads a few of the nastiest messages, spelling out _______ and saying "eff" to avoid repeating the numerous profanities.

    It's impossible for Collins to know whether this is just the typical vitriol that greets any high-profile commitment or whether his mother's actions added a dimension to it, gave people a license to unload on him. Either way, he's not about to second-guess his decision."

    When this story first broke, the rumor was the girlfriend was getting a scholarship for basketball and now its the girlfriend is getting a job. All these stories have been floated around by LSU fans and now being repeated by the mother. First, the girls mother is the girls basketball coach at Dutchtown and she did not get a scholarship to play basketball, but is going to attend Alabama on a academic scholarship. If the kid is going to is getting a job on campus in the administration office or some capacity, who cares? This happens all the time with the children of well placed politicians or big donors. Hell, this happens all the time for student athletes that are from out of state greyshirting. It's not uncommon to find these athletes working on campus in some capacity. This is really about nothing.

    But here is the million dollar question. Do either of these programs want the NCAA involved in any kind of investigation concerning Collins? If I'm LSU, I tell the mother to shut her pie-hole and move on.

    so At first she was dissatisfied that Saban pitched the NFL at Collins and that is why she didn't support her sons decision...
    Source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/highsc...160147795.html

    She goes on to say that Collins reached his short term goals but not his (Or the families) long term goals which are playing close to home at LSU with his younger brother....*the woman that wrote this blog is just as delusional as the mother when it comes to the game of football*

    and now she is stating this bs??? This woman is stupid.....

    This rule came about in basketball from schools hiring AAU coaches to get players to sign with their school. It really isn't an issue that's important, the NCAA just wanted to appear as if it cared when it was in the spotlight.
