College Coaches and Text Messages

Updated: Jan 14

*Originally posted 7/13/2020

I personally hate the little red dots that appear in the corner of each app. I basically do whatever I need to do to get rid of them. I don't know how some can have a number like "1,499" above their email app, that would drive me insane. Actually, when I came back to ACU as the head coach I had the same email address. I had a years worth of emails that I went through, filed away, watched film and responded to if needed; all so I wouldn't have that ridiculously large "unread"number at the top of my inbox. Text messages are a whole other issue.

I don't always respond to texts right away. Sometimes it's something that I need to think about, or in the instance I get a text at 9:30pm, it can usually wait until the morning. But I am definitely the "left on read" guy. I want to know what's going on and if it's important enough for me to respond to right that moment. The only problem with that is I can easily get 20-25 texts from different people in the morning (usually college coaches) and that means that the text I got the night before is now down on the text-feed too far to remember to respond.
