    I'm very familiar with our the print media works. I'm a Comm major with a focus on print.

    To your big point: that's great but we're talking about 16, 17, and 18 year old kids. They might be committed to Bama when they commit, but they change their minds. What about Justin Thomas this year? He was committed to the idea of WR or DB until he played the 2011 season at QB and decided that's where he wanted to play.

    Did you date in high school? Were you committed to that girlfriend of yours? Still committed to her or did you change your mind a few months (or weeks) after you started dating?

    the discussion is based on what OJ howard has said, publicly. no one is saying he isnt committed to us right now, but its a long ways to signing day for a recruit that is still kinda undercided.

    Its all just discussion based on conjecture of a young persons thoughts for the day.

    from what ive read of the posts, all are saying we'd love to have him, btu if he doesnt stick, we'll be just fine...and i agree.

    Regardless, of where he signs, we will be ok.... One player will neither make or break us.... We are a program based on a system/process, not one player... With that says, I feel that he will stick with us and I cannot wait to see him in Crimson!!!

    This is true, but I would really hate to miss on the TE prospect we've been waiting to get in the program. Especially with DeSean Smith naming LSU his leader. Both are very similar prospects and could be elite pass-catching TEs. I would hate to lose out on both.

    Unless we have 1 or 2 guys having breakout seasons this year I think his chances of seeing the field early would be pretty good at UA. He's a potential "difference maker" at the TE position. JMHO.

    new article on Tidesports.com, OJ was interviewed by Kieth Niebuhr. OJ stated that he was solid to Bama, but auburn was pushing really hard.

    Niebuhr said that he covered 2 camps this past weekend, OJ by far had the best physique for a HS player and enjoys competing with the best of them.

    Aubies OC has been trying to take credit for Aaron Hernandez in recent interviews leaving out he wasnt the OC at UF while he was around. Some kids may be buying the BS.

    what a surprise!! sounds like another Trooper story when he was telling recruits he turned down the Dallas Cowboys...

    if these kids are buying the barn's BS, they deserve to go to the plains.

    According to Temple's bio on Loeffler, he was QB coach at UF in 2009. Hernandez was there at the time.

    What are the interviews of him taking credit? I want to see how he's wording his comments to see factual they are. It's all about wording.

    I believe Lutzenwhatever did a radio interview how loeffler used the tight ends like hernandez in his offense. What I mean was it wasnt his offense he was the QB coach and while coaching that position prepared Tebow to be unprepared to be an NFL QB.

    Gotcha. Lutz probably is saying that to make himself have hope that he'll be important this year.

    O.J. Howard had some interesting comments in an article from Auburn's Rivals site. He seems to have some misinformation on how Alabama uses the TEs. He doesn't think we motion enough.

    One guess where he got his information from. Smelley was utilized heavily the latter part of the year, Williams as well. Why don't these recruits look for themselves instead of believing school A when they discuss school B with them?
