    Dillon's dad is Bill Bates. This has to be a longshot, but we can hope that the Bates and Jeffcoat families are tight and that MacIntyre built a relationship while he was the DB Coach with the Cowboys (6 years after Bates retired).

    But the above at least explains an offer to a prospect out of Florida.

    Also might be a gesture of respect to the family, even knowing there is little of a shot. Plus, never hurts having CU's name out there in the mix on great players.
