Actually, that seems to be what got their problems addressed.

There's a 5 page thread on here about why aren't high school kids loyal to the UofA in recruiting. The UofA better be loyal to current and former players if it wants the same treatment.

Why not pick up the phone and call someone? Or DM the athletic department, they all still work their, except long, lol. Nobody gets a check/direct deposit on Jan 1st. As to the video editing, there's still plenty of time to get that out before draft decisions need to be made. Players hit up the other sites that take pictures all the time, they have to pay for it, or it would be a NCAA violation.

Maybe we should fire him?

Let's make sure we give him carte blanche to sign an awful coach to a ridiculous buyout first behind the U of A's back.   ;)

Why not? It is a sign of the times. It is what kids today do.

They need to learn that no matter what they put out on social media it can and will be seen and could effect their future including employment or not.

While there may be some issues, tweeting out your frustration isn't the best way the go about rectifying them.
Maybe, but I believe it's for their peers to shut down like I am trying to shut down a bunch of hotheads calling players crybabies...

There's more staff than the football department. Everyone of those coaches that recruited has a Twitter account and a DM would have taken care of it. There's also several guys in the football operations department that have switched over from SMU, hit them up too.

Why does Ramsey want a highlight tape made?  Highlight of what? All his missed one arm tackles?

Go away. I thought player bashing was against Hogville rules.

But Ramsey's issue wasn't really a problem - it wasn't highlights for the NFL scouts or having anything to do with the draft. He said the NFL has access to all the video and that's what they use.
He wanted a highlight video to put on you tube. To me that's not a priority item.
Certainly not something to get in an uproar about.

BJ's issues are different and need to be addressed.

I do believe both of them were respectful in what they posted. It certainly could have been worse.  It is also their right to go to twitter instead of someone on campus.

I can go over my bosses head if I don't like his decisions....but it is probably not a good idea.

Between Ramsey crying about his photos and BJ complaining about no support during pro day training it appears the lack of having a staff in place is causing some hardships.  I feel for the players and is is not a good look on social media. 

You would think there would be plenty of support staff in place to take care of this stuff.

Adulting is hard.  Complaining on Hogville is too easy

It’s weird to me that hogville knows exactly how to get in touch with with the Athletic department.  They know the players also haven’t tried any of these ways and should be bashed. I guess that’s ok now.

SIAP,

I thought this was a very interesting point.  And since this is Hogville I will preface with I in no way think this is a negative reflection on the new staff.  It is just something as Bijhon points out, that gets overlooked in all of the madness that is the coaching carousel.

https://twitter.com/BijhonJ/status/947932363446800384

Here is another one he put out a little later.

https://twitter.com/BijhonJ/status/947986688042852352

But he had money for an engagement ring....

At some point if you've been ignored you just have to do it the way that will generate the attention quickest. I don't blame them a bit if they had tried other methods first and weren't getting a response.

Their posts and general tone of frustration suggested otherwise. They got help though so it worked, hats off to them for using technology to solve a problem, because after all that's what it's for. Sounds like the only people getting worked up are the mouthbreathers on this board
