Wow, this woman is just crazy. I feel bad for the kid but it looks like he's handled the situation with class, unlike his mother...
Five-star running back Alex Collins signs hit LOI with Arkansas, while his mom hires an attorney.
How old is that guy?? Like 32?
Hey Mom, you got to let your baby grow up and be a man at some point. He's not leaving forever. He's an adult and has to do what's best for him.
sounds to me like he signed with arkansas just to get away from her!!
Hate it for the kid but glad it happened to Bielema! Now he sees how nuts some of the SEC area parents are!
Almost everyone down south is nuts!
How do you know his mom is a nut case? Maybe something we don't know about is going on. But, it is the kids decision, best of luck to him and his family in the future.
Well, stealing his LOI and then going on the run, then hiring a lawyer after he finally is able to send it in and is sure he wants to go to Arkansas seems a bit over the top, but then again maybe to you that's totally fine and every parent should act that way if their child decides to go to college at a place they don't agree with.
the psoter was right, maybe something is going on like her being mentally insane. i agree with you, stealing the LOI and hiding it is absolute bat shit crazy
He actually sounds like he has his head squarely on his shoulders. Spoke pretty well about the experience and why he chose Arkansas. Basically the coaches who he felt comfortable with. Good for him. And he does seem focused on the academics as well. Said he felt the coaches would push him to do what was needed to be successful both academically and athletically at the next level.
He should have. Christ he's 32! But I'm sure it was a fight with his momma when she's getting all the "extra benefits" from Miami. Dammit she has to wait 2 years for him to get NFL millions?? Not soon enough. She wants it now. Momma Boo Boo got bills to pay!
I do also wonder why her last name is not the same as his. Not that it is a big deal, but I do have to wonder if she has neglected him his whole life until she noticed he might be worth money. Sounds to me like Dad is the more sensible one.
Is it possible she remarried after his birth?
My mom currently has a different name than me.
That's why I said not that it's a big deal. Because it really isn't. But as crazy as this woman sounds and as normal as this kid and his dad sounds it all kind of makes ya wonder
Is your mom's name Mrs. M81?
Hating scUM since 1964
she is older than me
Of course Im taking a shot in the dark but there has to be something on the table for this woman if her son goes to "her choice". Im betting she isnt all that concerned about the quality of education so it just makes you wonder.
