Have noticed on Altee's twitter the well-wishers from Alabama fans......for a good time on the Hill this weekend. Classy.
Now that's how you speak to targets not- committed or otherwise.!!!!!....
not a bunch of sour, low self- esteemed fans......
i agree but u r kidding urself if u don't think some from there won't turn on him if he flips to Arkansas. why any adult goes on twitter or facebook and rips a kid is beyond me but that isnt something only arkansas or fans from any one school only do. all schools including alabama have fans who do that unfortunately
i agree and thanks.......but we are his home.....and we should be above that and set an example...I'm also pretty sure the kids know that comes with the territory too.....

Derek?? Mid-afternoon mind cramp. ghg
its his DAD!!!!!!!!!!! do i have to spell it out
You already in your post :-)
From NEA to NWA.
Not that I am defending any nerd that would get on twitter and rip a kid, but it is much easier to not care about a RB visiting elsewhere if you have a stockpile of 4 and 5 star rb's already on your roster or that are about to be on your roster.
Give me Bama's commits and roster of current RB's and I would care less if one of the RB recruits was visiting elsewhere because he wouldn't be missed at all. He would just be a number to me.
honestly I wish Twitter and Facebook would ban anyone who goes on either and rips into kids. Not sure what makes an adult feel great about himself arguing with kids on social media.
You do not know what you're talking about Otis It's great to argue with people on Social media. Now tell me I am wrong!!!!!!
Sorry dont know what came over me Just cant stop arguing over Social media.
I have no problem with people arguing on Twitter and FB, been guilty of it myself, I know you find that hard to believe (Dripping with Sarcasm), but what I am talking about is adults jumping on recruits on there and stuff. That is stupid
Just have a question are you implying Bama fans are more classy than Hog Fans and that we should not be upset that the #1 recruit in the state is going to play for our enemy? Also not sure what you mean by this
"but we are his home.....and we should be above that and set an example...I'm also pretty sure the kids know that comes with the territory too"
Do you mean being "Classy" like Bama Fans and we should not be upset that he has chosen the enemy over his "HOME"? I do not agree or think it's ok for anyone to bash a kid for going to another school but if you think we should embrace it and be happy and there not be any fall out I think you are dreaming. Wonder how "Classy" the Bama fans would be if the #1 recruit in the State was committed to Arkansas I'm sure their reaction would be "Classic" but just not they way you are thinking.
Him coming for an official visit to the "Hill" to show his home state respect is a JOKE it's a slap in our face. I hear "Derek's" (wink wink) son got up on a stool at the Catfish Hole and called the HOGS If he in fact did this and stays committed to Bama I view that as nothing more than a guy leading a girl on to make her think he loves her... Sorry to be so brutally honest but if you are a HOG you are a HOG and a true HOG would NEVER GO TO BAMA
I don't mean to come across as "bashing" or not being "Classy" I completely understand Altee is going to Bama because he believes being at Bama will make him a better running back and he will go higher in the draft because he played at Bama. I get it but that does not mean I have to like it. I will not bash or commit one way or the other when he signs his LOI to Bama. Just really hope by him taking an official visit to "The Hill" out of "Respect" for his "HOME" state doesn't get the hopes of the "HOME STATE FANS" up. Could really be a tough pill to swallow for some HOG Fans.."you mean he came to "The Hill" and still stubbed us for 'Bama" just sayin' this could make it a lot worst for Many Fans

I would love for AT to be a razorback, but I am not going to make a fool out of myself if he doesn't . Love the ones we get and don't worry about the ones we don't . This is just my opinion.
I know just had to give you a hard time maybe try to add some humor..you were getting way to heavy.
i would continue staring at the word "Classy".....until you get it.

That's quite a statement for a first post on here, but I think you made some excellent and valid points.
None of us are happy about Tenpenny going to Bama, but if we want to act like somewhat mature people our dissatisfaction doesn't excuse poor behavior toward the kid. We should try to be above that regardless using the excuse of what some "Classless" fans from other schools might do. I know that is probably too much to expect from the total population of fans.
Sorry for the mini-lecture, over and out...
yeah all you classless fans need to stop poisoning trees ,throwing eggs at kids houses, and Tea baging other fans.

I completely agree with your statement. There should be no bashing or classless behavior but voicing disappointment in my opinion is natural. As another poster stated. I want the players who want to be a HOG don't really care to be someone's 2nd choice..maybe it's a "girl" things. LOL My cousin lives in T-Town and is married to a big time Bama Booster (yes this has been know to cause some marital issues =) She said no one is really talking about Altee much at all they are all very excited about Henry and getting Kamara. She said their attitude is if they lose Altee to Ark it's no big deal he was only going to be used as a back up and he would never start at Bama their is just too much talent.
I know that I don't want random people tweeting crap at me, or talking to me, so I do not do it to other people.
“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
Same here. I don't think that I even have a twitter. I may have set one up, realized I don't give a f*** what other people are doing, and haven't logged in since.
Yeah, I am afraid Altee and his family may be drinkng the cool aid over there. It is pretty strong cool aid for an 18 year old.
Nixahog I live in Springfield
