Bobcat Ballpark Review
Seriously? He and his wife played for TXST and he gave an online school a scholarship? That's really disappointing. My guess is they asked him and TXST assumed he would come back knowing how out AD seems to operate.

Yeah. There's a guy, that reports on the Dbacks, that I follow on twitter. I was really disappointed when I read that several months back.,

Honestly:
Charles Austin- wins an Olympic medal, has a very successful business, street on campus named after him. $$$ - nope
(son has no desire to attend TXST, either)
Ricky Sanders - part of the Redskins posse - back in the day. Son went elsewhere, daughter graduated TXST in 2013. $$$ - never heard of any.
Big Fred Evans - not a star but 8 years in the NFL - anything???
He just resigned for 1 mil.
(FWIW - his sister won a bronze medal in bobsled at Sochi)
Jeff Foster - 13 NBA seasons. Came back and got his degree. Had his # retired. Shows up for a lot of events but, big $$$$? Not that I'm aware.
There's a bunch more but these were on the top of my head.

If any of these guys had given big time I would bet we'd have heard about it; one way or another.

I'm annoyed by the scholarship because both he and his wife got a free education thanks to the university. Wish they gave back to the school that gave them everything and not a school that gave him 6 hours.

I won't fully judge him because I feel he may be involved in some way behind the scenes or in the future. Don't know all the facts.

I agree but that it was his, seemingly, first move was what disappointed me most. There may be something ahead but this was his first and that's what "hurts"?
I do doubt an online scholly is not nearly as much as one might be for TXST. And I'll take a big chunk to help improve TXST over that any day of the year.
