He can act crazy as he wanna act now that he's with auburn and id gladly never hear Bama associated yet have him sign his name on the LOI at the 11th hour. Glad the circus left town but the kid is a player at the end of the day.
You'll never achieve great things until you believe that's what's supposed to happen
1) As decided by whom?
2) What real world consequences does it have?
If our ego can't get over something as simple as a PERCEIVED slight by a child (he's not 18 yet, and had nothing but positive things to say about Bama), it's gonna be a tough life.
Serious question...how will you react if he flips back to Bama? When he gets on the field, will you want him to make tackles? Intercept passes? Sack opposing QBs? If the answer is yes to those questions, then the answer to your question in your OP is that you absolutely will happily accept his re-commit, no matter how much you protest now that you won't.
Jeez...if he recommits and then when he gets on the field, what are you going to do...hope he misses tackles? Blows pass coverages, misses assignments? Blows out his knee? Of course not. So no matter how much you protest now, if he recommits, not only will you accept his recommit...you'll even learn to like it real fast once he steps on the field.

Sour grapes are sour.
If he recommits to Bama, I'm gonna be so pissed that the first time he sacks Mettenberger, I won't be able to enjoy it at all.
Yes I'm sour and he's fat..
I don't find it necessary for any of you to attack me. Nothing the kid did personally bothered me, I couldn't care less. I was stating my opinion that based on the collection of facts and what happened, it's hard to believe that Foster didn't have intent to ridicule the UA coaching staff. In conclusion, he has character issues, and I'd be cautious, at best, with having him flirt with us again after what he did. Crucify me for stating my opinion, some of you are so quick to jump down someone's throat..
The point is that if he does recommit and sign with Alabama, then obviously Nick Saban and the staff don't have a problem with him, so it would be pretty juvenile of us to have a problem with it. Not jumping down your throat...just pointing out the very obvious flaw in your logic.
I never questioned Nick Saban's judgment, nor did I project his opinion to the forums decision. The question was directed towards YOU. Would YOU accept a recommit from any recruit based on the events?
I think what the kid did was incredibly disrespectful o the university and coaching staff. I also bet it was totally orchestrated by the *u coaches. Foster probably thought they were helping him out with a prepared statement. Regardless hell yes I would take his commitment. Kid is very talented and is not a trouble maker off the field. I know he has played the recruiting game up but he is not a trouble maker ( see d liner)
Never Gets Old
I would only to see the butt hurting from the Barn when he re-signed with us. Id love to see the melt down.
My answer is no. At some point these schools have got to stand up against these recruits that think they can just commit/decommit.its getting old. I mean r foster is an awesome player and everything and would love to see him play at Bama but at this point we should stand up to him and make him play at auburn. Let him enjoy playing in the peach bowl every year.

He has made his bed and guess what.....Now he gets to sleep in it!
He can't come back now with that *U tat.
Not unless he agreed to get the word "Blows" on his other arm.
