Collins' girlfriend's influence

  • Admittedly, I don't know anything about the situation other than the rumors and conjecture we hear around here, so if I'm wrong about this someone feel free to correct me. We've know for awhile that LC's girlfriend was a Bama fan and was coming to school up here and we've hoped that would have an effect on his decision. Corndogs are grudgingly saying that LC wants to go to LSU but is giving in to his girl (really can't blame them - we'd be doing the same thing). Plenty of Bama fans have even speculated that LC's mom is just upset that he's choosing Bama b/c of his girl, in essence choosing her over the mom.

    BUT last night Collins said himself that the decision to attend Bama was made 2 years ago. Knowing that now, isn't it logical or at least reasonable to assume that her affinity for Bama and decision to come up here might be because of him?

    Good observation and I've been thinking along the same lines. He was always coming and, IMO, he was probably encouraged to build drama with the tweeting back and forth, pics of the girl in full barnacle regalia, etc. They played it very well, but the mama drama may have just been one too many jinga blocks.

    Douché!

    Ain't nuttin but true. I'll tell you about the power of the P. I turned down admission to follow a girl to.........guess......go ahead.....guess. Okay....boogville. Yes I did. I had my roomie at Bama all squared away and she wanted to go to somewhere I never thought possible.

    It lasted one quarter. Found me some new P in T-Town and the rest is history. Here's the twilight zone thingy. The new P I found in T-Town was a fan of....guess...go ahead..... guess. Didn't matter though I felt clean and married her 24 years ago.

    I've been thinking the same thing. It's very logical but you're not going to convince an LSU fan otherwise. It's their way of making themselves feel better about losing him. They're convinced that he is leaving his family behind and the school of his choice to go to a school because of a girl instead of choosing what school he wants to go to and having the girl, who is also a fan, come with him. Unfortunately, if the story was reversed there's people on here that would be claiming as much. Every fanbase does it.

    It is very obvious to me LC and his gf has planned this all along. You know LC gf knew he wanted to attend Alabama. You know they were going to go to the same school. She had to get admitted, she did. He had to commit, he did. He said he has known for 2 years, you know they planned exactly what happened. RTR
