Since some post every negative post about Auburn, here is one about Alabama... I have ZERO idea if it is true, but it does seem plausible.
"Just needed to post again because BAMA assistant coach
Jeremy Pruitt accused our new head football coach and myself of bullying
Darius Paige. We simply told Darius that if he transferred that there
was a chance of him being ineligible. The assistant coach mentioned
again that he needed to know if we could take care of Darius
academically. Again we told him we were not going to give Darius's any
grades. I sure the hell will not cave in to these cheating SOBs.
Our head football coach resigned on June 11, 2012. About a week later I got
a call from one of our assistant coaches, informing me that Darius
Paige, a DT at our school Booker T. Washington HS in Pensacola, who is
committed to BAMA that it was suggested to him by BAMA assistant Coach
Jeremy Pruitt to transfer to Foley HS like DJ Fluker because he can be
taken care of academically there because he knew the head coach at Foley
HS real well. ?Our assistant coach call Coach Pruitt and asked what was
going on and Coach Pruitt's response was since we were in between head
coaches and he wasn't sure if we had an academic plan for Darius Paige.
Also, on that day Darius told our coach he didn't want to go but that
they had already gotten his mom a job in Foley. About a week later, I
called Darius Paige to ask him if he was transferring and he said yes. I
informed him that I would be contacting the NCAA, SEC, and the Alabama
HS Athletic Association. I then left a message for Coach Pruitt to call
me and he later called me back. I asked why he was telling Darius to
transfer. He told me Darius was using him as a scapegoat because he
really wanted to leave. I then told him that Darius wouldn't lie about
something like this. I then told him that if Darius did transfer he
would be ineligible. His immediate response was "NO" it is a bonafide
move. My response was I thought you had nothing to do with it now you
are telling me it is a bonafide move. He then asked me if we could take
care of Darius academically, I replied that we did have an academic
plan. He then proceeded to tell me that at Foley HS Darius could make up
7 core classes in one year. I informed him that I would be contacting
whoever I needed to and hung up. Since our conversation I have found out
that Darius was suppose to take his ACT on June 9, but he was told by
Coach Pruitt not to take it here, that he needed to take it when he got
to Foley. Up til this afternoon Darius has admitted that he does not
want to go the Foley, but it was not his decision that his dad was
making him go. I also found out the link between Coach Pruitt and the
head coach at Foley Todd Watson. Todd Watson was the defensive
coordinator at Hoover HS in Alabama and Jeremy Pruitt was his defensive
back coach at Hoover under Todd Watson. Up until 2:30 this yesterday
afternoon Darius stills tells us he does not want to go"
Good friends are hard to find. Enjoy every moment you have with them.
I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
If Penn State didn't get the death penalty bammer never will. What scared them about Cam was they thought we had learned to cheat like them and get away with it. I am glad we were cleared by the NCAA.
It's Great to be an Auburn Tiger!!!

Don't know where it came from but it was posted on Rivals a few days ago. A little googling seems to show that the guy who wrote the rant is the AD at Washington. Seems that it would be easy enough to confirm or refute. I do see that there was talk on a few bammer boards at the beginning of the month that this kid might be transferring... no word that he actually has though.

I can not begin to tell you how funny it would be if this was found out to be true.

Foley is the same town with the Cracker Barrel that won't sell Auburn stuff. Sounds like the Bammer mafia owns the place. I'll be sure and avoid it.
