We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
Coming from a Ohio state fan that's just comical. Ask any Florida fan on this board about Meyer's players down at UF. UF and UGA always battled for who had the most arrest each summer.
Lots of pissed off Buckeyes ITT.
You guys do realize that you weren't even in his final two right?
We dropped him months ago
I guess you didn't really get the point, did you? Josh McNeil just committed. Everyone knew there were grade issues and when he didn't make the progress that was set for him, his scholarship offer was altered. He probably will still get in somewhere and is probably going to end up at LSU. Saban just wasn't willing to take the risk on him. FYI though. He has a tOSU offer.
I hear he's a lot closer to qualifying than Eddie Lacy was at this point. Don't think that Alabama people won't be all over his ass when it comes to his schoolwork and making sure he does what he needs to.
I'm not the only person predicting him not to qualify. Also, the only schools I hate are Pitt and VT. Saban is actually my favorite coach.
And to Crzylegs, whoever this guy is... I have only participated in 2 Foster threads in my entire life.
Yes, I'm still trying understand why they care..
Bama was mislead with McNeil's grades, and he was a mid-year or bust guy. That's why he's out. Simple as that. I'm not saying every single thing we do is outside of the grey area, but in this case it is what it is.

Sorry but he's got a long way to go to qualify. He's definitely talented but in the classroom, he's lazy and dumber than NoVa.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
No Buckeye fan should be pissed, and if they are it is their own fault. We jumped off the Foster train a long time ago, best of luck to him at Bama.

Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
He's got work to do but I still say that Alabama will be all over him getting done what he needs to get done. He will be watched like a hawk from this point on and they will do all they can to make sure he stays focused.
Time will tell. You don't understand just how far Eddie lacy was from qualifying. He committed and Bama stayed on his ass and made sure he did what he needed to get done.

There is an awful lot of sense in this post. Preciate it, elite.
We're not mad at all. We just know about him cause we recruited him for a while. He's slightly retarded, he tweeted out talking shit about having to hear the academic side of things while on a visit to OSU lol. We pretty much dropped him after that
Kid can't even spell his own name...
Is he a "see spot run" guy?
I guess a sign and place is better than no sign at all, though.
We will see I guess. I never really thought we would get him so I'm glad that we at least have a shot. If he doesn't get his act together, we may drop his offer. He'll get all the support that he needs, and I mean within NCAA rules before someone jumps all over that statement.
Still pumped about the possibility.
Jerrell Powe and Michael Oher couldn't even fvcking read.
I put little to no effort in high school. It takes a real retard to not pass high school
What do you need to get into Alabama, GPA, ACT, SAT scores? just wondering.
Bama sent josh McNeil all the way to a new high school in New York to try to get him qualified. I'd say Saban was willing to take some risks on him
people said the same thing about him when he committed to your school. every year there are plenty of kids that get in that "will never make it to campus"
I'm not 100% sure on this but I think a 2.0 GPA and 18 ACT for athletes. I don't know if it's different for regular students but I think I remember reading that once.
I went to college up in Indiana so not real sure.
wrong. josh graduated early in order to go to prep school. he had already decided to do that before he committed to Bama.
