As a new subscriber here on the 30 day trial, can you give some ideas of what the text messages over the last day or so have been?
Harsin interviewing with Arkansas State. Home visit with Za'Darius Smith. I put that in the same message this morning.
I get the text alerts and they are definitely worth it. It's not like some things where they send so many that it becomes annoying. The most I ever remember getting was 3 in a day and it was all breaking news about players/commits.
As an example, I received 3 on December 3rd: 1. Harsin visiting McEvoy in Arizona. 2. Kyle Hicks decommitting. 3. Possibility that Texas goes after Rodriguez Moore out of East Mississippi.
Great feature and really nice when you can't check the board very often.
Got my text about Harsin this morning at 5:15am! Ouch. I think I could have waited to find out with my morning coffee at 7.
At least you weren't late for work. That could be a positive.
I may need to turn the texts feature off...with the board, at least I can choose when to come on to see the bad news...with the texts, they show up immediately on my phone and I have to read them. I'm thinking the Robinson decommit is the next text....

I'm beginning to dislike these. Never good news.
The last few weeks have been so bad, every time I get one I'm like, "now, what?"
but thats the teams fault not 247. The service is killer.
