He had real promise and came from such a bad background, just to languish away under bad coaching his last 2 years. Sucks.
Who is rft?
Oh never mind. Was thinking football.
Agreed. Thought he was headed toward a great college career.
"He's an athlete!"
His problem is that he just doesnt have consistent effort. He either completely checks out,or he's playing at 5,000 miles an hour. Needs to find a place in between.

Too bad he doesn't have any coaches to help him
He's from Houston, kid could have worked his ass off every offseason with tons of talent surrounding him to get better. I don't want to hear about coaching, kid has never developed.
He should end up with a degree from a top notch university and won't have had to pay for it. Shouldn't feel too bad for him.
Yeah I'm not sure pity is the right emotion. He could have benefited from good coaching, yes, but that doesn't excuse lack of effort, which he displayed often
Not sure what the point is here. He worked his ass off for the basketball program that made a helluva lot more than the cost of his scholarship.
I'm sure he's thankful for the degree. Hell, he tried to run for president of his freshman class he was so proud of the opportunity. But let's be clear: He made more for the university than he was given. That's the way it works.
Lol at us for bestowing nicknames upon such a garbage player.
RFT, the president.
We're so thirsty for a modicum of success, we name our scrubs. Somewhere Tomas Ress the Italian stallion is lol'ing.
I somewhat disagree sin, u can't isolate what he actually did or did not make money wise for the program, however the young man made the most of his opportunity and is gettin a degree that most of us will pay for till we are 40...the shame is that this is all we have to focus on for the ball program this year
Your logic is boggling my mind
That's fine. We'll just disagree on the subject. Pet peeve of mine. They work as hard or harder than anybody at their job when they're in school to pay for their education. Meanwhile, the university uses his "celebrity" to sell tickets and viewers for the games, which is worth a helluva lot more than what he gets from the school.
And as a result, he gets his education and all of the criticism he deserves for his play. That's just the way it is. But make no mistake...A&M gets the good end of the deal. They make money off of him no matter what happens in the win/loss column.
