Wtf kind of parent does this?

Player for next year WR Jacob Copeland #40 ranked holds press conference to commit. He's dressed in a red suit, mom (in alabama shirt and Tennessee stocking cap) and other family surrounding him....he picks up Florida hat. Mom literally grabs purse and walks away from the table pissed off on live TV.

What a shitty parent. He looked like he wanted to cry. Didn't know what to say when asked why she stormed off. Says he had to go with his heart and not the team his mom likes.

So bad. But props to those 2 gentlemen who sat down next to him and put their arms around him. He needed that, and it's too bad that his mom couldn't provide that support for him. I kind of got the same vibe when Jason committed to Miss St over KU. He was bawling his eyes out and didn't even say Miss St when announcing his choice. Just put the pullover on, meanwhile his mom was behind the camera saying, "You tell them where you going."

Hate when the parents steal the show in anything that their kids do. Good for him choosing to go where he wanted to go.

Good enough for me.

Still wasn't very classy... and when you sit yourself down at a table on national TV you're willingly opening yourself up to criticism. Just goes with the territory. She made it about her instead of him and now it'll be all he's asked about for at least the first portion of his college career.

And now she's forced her son to make himself look stupid by saying he's willing to kill and die over people criticizing her.

Some of these kids should just sign a damn letter of intent at their kitchen table and stop seeking out the limelight before they're ready for it and before they've been properly educated on how to handle yourself with the media. There's a reason our guys go thru training on dealing with the media.

Speaking of Signing Day do y'all remember this story? When the guy faked an announcement to Cal, when Cal hadn't even heard of him.
