Every day something comes out that show's his true colors, I'd like to thank RF for not coming to AU. He is the same kid we have had over & over again on The Plains, hell of a player but a complete waste of space.
"I won't go down in history, but I will go down on you sister."- Hank Moody, 'Californication'
Saban said. "Because he does like to please you is one of the reasons why he is a very good competitor."
That quote doesn't make much sense.
What the hell ?
How in the world is this a reflection on Reuben's character?
This is a completely unfair statement.
Thanks for opening your mouth and erasing all doubt.
It is truly sad that a kid has to go through this. It does explain his desperately craving a father figure, which apparently Trooper had become in a short time. It also makes clear Reuben was never committed to Auburn, but was committed to Trooper. I guess when the guy you have become close to as a father figure gets canned, you aren't going to feel a lot of loyalty toward the firing organization.

That's one messed up statement. It's nice to know from you that a 18 month old had a choice in having an awful father and one that shot him in the back. Can't imagine living like that...wondering if he would ever come back to finish the job.
Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear.
This one is equally bad. Speechless. The kid was almost murdered before he was two, never knew if someone was going to come back for him and his family, and it sounds like he's extremely lucky his mother survived. Seems to me like the kid has already done pretty well for himself.
I think it will just be a distraction, something to cause him to lose focus. We shall see, though.
What about that story gave you the impression that he almost died? He's mom was the one who got shot while holding him. he could of just grazed.. I agreed with most the people here he's fathers actions has nothing to do with Reuben
I am so thankful to have had such a great father in my life an thank God for that everyday. I wish Foster the best an pray he finds a great role model at Bama so he can see how to be a great dad to his little girl. Football aside everyone deserves a good life an this world needs better male models to show their children the love they deserve.
It is time to look past Reuben as a football player and look at Reuben as a person. He is a confused young man and if I were in his situation, I'd be too. I don't know the religious affiliation of people on this board nor do I care all that much but I do know that many claim to be Christians and supported Coach Chizik's public statements of faith. If you really believe that, you need to pray for this young man that he can find true peace.
Reuben was a great HS player and a force on the field. He was my favorite recruit and I felt like he was the most grounded of all the recruits we had committed. I was wrong! He turned his recruitment into a circus. The guy that I thought was so grounded, turned into a self promoting premadona. Living in Troup Co., Ga (Lagrange)- I recall another linebacker from this area that arrived with a lot of glory and fanfare only to be a huge bust and never reach the potential we all expected. I think Reuben will have regrets about the way he handled this and his choice before it's all over! WDE!!!!!!
