I know that I'm beating a dead horse issue, and that our fold of running backs is rock solid. But, at what point does someone call out the troll on all of these last minute "changes of heart", and after being a long-time commitment to us or another school, suddenly being "certain" about where they want to go. Yes, we are talking about 17-18 year old kids here, but this seems to happen quite often, especially when it comes to bammer vs. us! Is there another program out there that can relate to all of the last minute flip-flops to rival schools? Lets just say that if we start losing kids, in the last few seconds...even after national tv announcements, as was the case with Cyrus....to say, Southern Cal or Texas A&M or others...at the rate it happens with the troll, they'd be getting letters of inquiry from the NCAA eventually. I normally don't get too juiced, one way or the other....didn't even say anything to bammers last year about Cyrus...or Calloway, but the way the Yeldon flip went down has a stench like no other, for me at least. Dead period begins in a couple hours.....uhhh, after being committed to AU nearly an entire year, my heart is in Tuscalooser! I will not take anymore questions before enrolling in January! I wish the young man well; hopefully he won't get vilified to badly when the 'process' is trying to rebuild from major probation! WAR EAGLE!
He will get the same treatment Lattimore got. The taste of being defeated by AU. War Eagle.
It sure seems that somehow the evil nation got to him, but unless you have proof...
In certain situations these kids face incredible pressure, but you and I can speculate all we want but nothing is going to happen unless they get caught red handed.
Yep, speculation is just that...speculation. Until someone comes out and says something about some booster offering or giving $$ or other improper benefits....nothing will be done. If the roles were reversed, you can bet the LOI would be on Jacobs desk, probably at the urging of the national media. The troll's buddy, Emmert, will never let light shine on his pimping of these young men.
i think saban has emmert by the short and curlies, but i'm nowhere close to being an insider anywhere.
Even with out Dyer and Yeldon, Auburn will field 5 4-star RBs next year. I think Yeldon knew he would be on the bench at Auburn for 2+ years.
Only signing one this year means we have a great shot at bringing in a top back next year. Auburn makes great running backs. Great RB's don't make Auburn.
indeed... Let it go. Not worth the stress...
Is there not a thread on here today that tells us "Boulware checks on bama commit?" It happens.
Strive for perfection in everything we do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, create it.
That RB from Daphne is enrolled at Alabama and no longer Auburn's concern except once a year in November.

You are right Bryan,but the neck mafia is still our concern. Liner will be their next target. And so it goes. They are control freaks, and they have to flip at least one a year to keep sending their message.
And he will take a REAL A_S BEATING once a year around November.
Its only a matter of time before they get caught!! War damn Eagle!!
There ya go buddy.. got you followed now.. You should.start a new user thread.. let everyone welcome you. WDE Mr. King.
"Get in where you fit in." Life is, Too Short TL;DR

Question for the conspiracy folks: If we are successful in flipping Bush, what will be the reason? Will you accuse us of paying him, even though he is a long time commit to the home-state school? Of course not. It will be because our coaches did a good job of selling Auburn.
Kids change their minds. They are KIDS. That's why the parents also have to sign the LOI (for many of them). The difference is that when WE flip kids from other schools (happens each year), you don't obsess over it.
If you have specific evidence, pass it to the NCAA. Otherwise it just sounds like sour grapes or paranoia, IMO.
