His dad sure is strict. Also made him throw left handed even though he is naturally a righty.

Prolly no mental health issues on the way from Dad dominating his life or anything. Tiger says "hey, Tua".

I'm pretty sure you'll find the overwhelming majority of those with mental health issues are those who didn't have fathers in their lives who cared.

Daddy got a sweet job at Mercedes and brother got a starting QB slot at a AL HS. Probably got a free house and all the perks.

It was nice of the rival schools not to document these illegalities and alert the NCAA.

No surprise. Tua's dad owns him and beats him. Whatever dad says goes.

That's not as bad a thing as you think it is honestly. I am thankful I got my arse beat as a kid after seeing the generations who didn't.

Tua is telling us the school he wanted to go to, but his daddy said the money was too much.

Always been an SEC fan.. but when the top 5 stars from out west stopped going to the PAC 12 schools it was bad for CFB. No regional balance.

Fans have to have something to rationalize the success of a rival school. The most common is "they cheated."
