We'll have him on the Morning Drive at 9:00 (central) coming up here, too. Y'all can listen to that right here:
Journalism student at Alabama. Catch me on twitter @marctorrence. Roll Tide!
THANK YOU for explaining to all those idiots around the state and beyond that Mr DP still had a scholly to Alabama and still could have come to play at his dream school, just as he had always wanted to do (according to some). I don't know the kid so I'm giving that second hand of course. The kid was not thrown to the wolves at the last minute and was not told sorry kid, we don't want you now - thanks but no thanks. Nope, we offered him pretty much what had been promised all along ( we can debate all we want the merits of greyshirting ) but it is still a ride free to play football at The University of Alabama. Period.
The only thing he needed to do was wait a few more months. WOW. So, I can go play at my dream school. A place that is obviously the elite of elite programs in the country right now. I only need to chill, work out, get myself stronger, and be ready to go for what? 4 months 5 tops? This debate is IMHO ridiculous. Sure, the best case would be if every kid could come in day 1. That's not reality and this whole mess is muchadoabout nothing. The kid had a full (as full can be these days of course again) ride to play football at Alabama. Period end of debate.
THANK YOU for getting that in over a guy who obviously was just trying to make this more bull than it truly is. You did great sir and we Thank You for not only representing yourself, the 24/7 staff and site, but representing the TRUTH of what this situation really is.
