    Reuben Fosters Dad arrested

    In all the drama about this guy for the last year I had no idea that he went through all of this. Explains much

    Wow, what an awful lot to have to deal with at such a young age. I pray that God provides Reuben the comfort and strength that he needs.

    I said in comment on facebook talking about this that Mark Ingram should give him tips on how to handle this type of distraction.

    Honestly, I don't even like us talking about this. It's a tough, personally matter that Ruben has to deal with. I wish him well. It does give a lot of justification for any of his behavior we might consider odd, but this is a deeply personal matter and I feel I have no right to comment further.

    Wonder what the over/under will be for how many times Musberger or Verne mentions this during BAMA games they call. My guess is 5.

    I had no idea. It definiteky explains statements I've heard about Ruben looking for a father figure.

    It's a shame everyone does not feel this way. It's none of our business. The kid will be just fine under CNS or he won't be there, no one gets a pass on doing the right thing.

    some knew, including myself. but this was one of the things i chose not to mention. way too deep for me to comment on. hope he has someone around him to help him handle this.

    Glad no one mentioned it. But seems to me that someone dug something up to try to smear this young man reputation a lil bit. I hope he continues on the right path because he's that good on the field.

    Re: Ruben Fosters Dad arrested

    You know what stinks besides the fact this kid was wounded and had troubles?

    When (notice I said "when" and not "if") the guy has a big game there will now be some wise guy out there (post-Manti Teo) who insists the story is fabricated or exaggerated or whatever. As far as Verne and Brent go, I'll say this: if they bring it up it is USUALLY in the context of said player having a big game (or year) and us winning the SEC/national title.

    Let 'em talk. I wish they wouldn't but I can't stop them.
