Some reactions from the Texas forum at 247 about Mike Williams
Some of them act like little bitches, no surprise, every fanbase has them. Others were pretty fair about it. Here are the worst.

quote:

I have some insight into this one with a contact. Mike is going to be a walk-on at LSU. He's very close to Stingley. He also comes from a poor family. The follow-up question I had is how is he going to pay for school until he earns a full ride? The response from my contact is there are friends/boosters at his HS who will take care of things for him in the interim. That my friends is called illegal but it is the LSU way. Don't expect for anyone to ever investigate this or for the NCAA to do anything.


Sounds legit, no way it could be made up. I'm sure boosters at UT have never done anything like it. /s

quote:

What LSU does should be no surprise to anyone. LSU assistant coaches caught famed Marshall, TX QB and Longhorn freshman Y.A. Tittle as he hung from his dorm room 2nd floor window at UT so they could take him to LSU in order to enroll there.


Y.A Title? Yep, we have the exact same administration from the mid-1940's. Besides, it sounds like a random rumor from UT fans that's been spread for over 70 years.

quote:

Cool. Hope enjoys taking 2 regular season L's from us the next 2 years Hook 'Em.


Good luck with that.

quote:

Total horse shite is what it is
Thats the LSU way.

From scholarship at Texas to walk on at LSU by choice is far more than fishy.


Well we couldn't give him a scholarship at this moment. It's not hard for someone to earn the roughly $6,000 needed per semester. I earned that every 3 months just waiting tables during college.

Easily. Plus financial aid, grant money, buying used books, working on campus, etc.

He hated Tom Herman and thought the people in Austin were all weird as hell. He did not enjoy living there or being a part of that team.

Don't have the room for him currently. It would count for the 85 limit and ours is tight right now. Plus I think he would count for the 25 in this years class

I have no doubt about that. Different culture between Louisiana and Austin. Plus Herman seems like a total douche.

Nothing illegal about someone paying for your education as long as it is not paid by university or coaches if student does not have a scholarship.

So he didn’t like being kissed by Tom Herman and he didn’t like the “keep Austin weird” slogan.

I can’t imagine many young black males can relate to the California hipster invasion currently happening in Austin

So, if I used to go to Austin in the mid 90s, and thought it was cool, I might be disappointed if I went today?

Tuition for a year at LSU is probably a bit less than his HS tuition at Dunham.
