he has a Super Bowl Ring...so that somehow qualifies him to coach in someone's book.

Yeah.  Bailiff's.

he has only 3 years total experience, and he is a bad coach...but he will tell you he is a "freak maker"

lol.  What is he, 12-years-old?

None of them suck, they just haven't found what the kid is good at yet.

If he is a "freakmaker" then he shouldn't worry about how big his guys are. You know, since he makes them.

This is something that is interesting to me...and am very curious how its going to work out for them...the guys he is going after, not just in High School Recruiting, but transfers...they are brining in a JUCO kid, 6'7" 355 pounds...jaw dropping...if he is this big, why isn't Saban chasing him? Because he doesn't move well would be my guess...but what do I know :P

Welp, maybe it's the new math but I took his resume to mean, 1 year at Garden City Community College, 1 year at Central Oklahoma and and 1 year at Oklahoma Baptist.  But maybe my math is wrong.  ;)

Well, on Wednesday he visited a D3 in Texas, he applied, gave his unofficial transcript...and they really really wanted him...

Thursday we drove to Arkansas for another visit on Friday morning...lots of walking, and talking with coaches, Doctors from the academic side of things...and coaches...the showed us the campus, the town, the facilities...he watched film and talked scheme with the DC and the DLine Coach...then we spent some time with the head coach...and then the head coach offered him a scholarship...and about an hour later, Ryan decided he was going to accept the offer...they made him feel welcome and wanted, and the scholarship offer was pretty good comparatively speaking...so while we were talking with the header, Ryan pops up and said "I'm in"...both me and mom and the head coach said "are you sure?"....he said, yeah, i'm in...

My boy is now an Arkansas Tech Wonderboy…

From an academics stand point, we think this is going to be a good fit for him, and based on the presentation they put on, I think the football part is going to be good too...they want him to report in July for optional workouts if at all possible...we have to figure out the money part and see...

SM. Sorry this is happening but it sounds like things are looking a lot better. This part of it is what turned Tyler off from playing in college. Wish all y'all the best

Yeah, this did put him in a sour mood...he said he hated the "politics" of college football...he want to have fun and play...thanks for the well wishes...

Excellent!

You'll need to either rename or start a new thread; "Update from ATU"
