    On ITAT they actually think RF's transfer is an REC conspiracy. They believe RF is solid to Bama, and this now gives Bama the #1 recruit in the state. Also, it will allow Bama to claim they took a five-star out of the barn's backyard. The tighter barner tin foil hats become, the more devious the REC is.

    I just hope wherever RF goes that he can play football this fall. Nothing like taking a year off and then trying to elevate to the college game. Hopefully RF and RN stay at the top of the rankings and we can pull in the top 2 recruits in the nation. RTR!!

    The Bunker sees it differently. They've invented a conspiracy where Reuben was slated to attend Opelika, but decided on Auburn instead. Now the REC is threatening not getting his mom a job. Wow. Where do people get this stuff?

    This is correct, but I'm not so sure how many of those are in Auburn. I'm shocked every time I go home for Thanksgiving. I promise Tiger Town was pretty much 40/60 on game day the past two Iron Bowls at Auburn. Just shocks me. Had that been Tuscaloosa I'd be mad seeing that much orange and blue. I don't even know that I saw that much during the Tubberville 6 in a row run.

    This makes even more sense why he decided on AU HS and stay close to home. Something I did not know.

    That doesn't mean Foster is forgetting about LaGrange. He still has a big reason to be close to LaGrange -- A'Ziya, his 3-year-old daughter.

    That doesn't really help us with respect to battling Auburn because LaGrange is far closer to the Plains than T'town, but it is what it is.

    Of course, if he's really looking to make serious money by getting to the next level ASAP, he's not giving the cow pasture a second look.

    FWIW and maybe just a rumor but I have seen it on some other UA boards. Again a rumor at this point but apparantly his mother has gotten a job at AU. I guess she needed one to get them set up in the district to RF in school. If so it may be a blessing because being the #2 player in the country and transfer to a new HS has to have the NCAA watching all over this. I guess I can find solace that AU also got L Fanning's mother a job as well if I recall correctly.

    I don't know anything specific about what is happening with his mother, but this type of thing really doesn't have anywhere near the meaning that a lot of people assign to it.

    In college towns, the university itself is far and away the biggest employer in the area, hiring for positions ranging all the way from scientists to secretaries to janitors and everything in between. As such, it's really not surprising that a parent of a kid moving there would get a job with the university. I don't see it as something that should create suspicion or give any real cause for concern.

    Is the job Auburn University specific? I mean could the job be for Auburn high school, the city of Auburn? High schools recruit ball players too especially the ones with close borders to other states. North Jackson comes to mind here in my neck of the woods.

    Yep, just ask Mr. Richardson in a couple weeks.

    My understanding she is working at the Univ., but as BET said I agree because I assume they are the biggest employer in the town and there are always jobs at a university.

    Fact is her son wanted to transfer HS but stay close to his daughter. From my understanding of AL HS FB rules basically his mom had to move for it to happen so it was legit and not living with some random person so he could play football. Also he wanted to go to a HS where he could graduate in Dec and be an EE at UA in Jan. Everything so far adds up and allows him to reach these goals. Now yes I understand AU fans will read this how they wany and I am sure we will different spins throughout the year but I really nothing to worry about at this point.

    Aubs at work were talking about Reuben's transfer. They couldn't give his name, but they were sure to mention he was in their back yard, which meant getting in his ear and possibly flipping him.
