I'm horribly shocked that Foster is being proved to be a normal human, and not Gaudi or someone. My give-ah-$hitter wouldn't budge on this one.

Meanwhile water is still wet. In 2013 I am not surprised at any player admitting he received money especially a player from one of the BCS conference schools.

I'd rather hear more about Foster's great production than hear him complain about playing time, talking about taking money in college and what not. I sure don't hear about him in the same light as I used to

He's probably just pissed cause Tate is running better than him right now. Give him time.

I think before very long we will see Foster back to his old ways of racking up a lot of yards and TDs. I have confidence in him.

Default Re: Foster admits to taking money in college

This is why I'm not a big fan of college football right now. It goes on everywhere, some are just better at not getting caught and when an institution gets caught its some big whoopdy do, like, oh my god, they're cheating! No shiate, they're all doing it. I'll take the NFL any day, thank you, no doubt what's going on there and nobody is under any misguided dilusions.

Default Re: Foster admits to taking money in college

Eh, I had a brief stint playing College ball and had two brothers who played a lot in College. They never needed extra money because they used what was given to them through their scholarships. They knew if they left the campus they were on their own. Granted, this was many years ago.

I'm not sure what can happen to UT this far after the fact, but wonder if Foster has given it any thought. Great, you aren't scared of the big bad NCAA anymore, but what about the program

Foster wasn't a highly sought after recruit.
He only played RB one year in HS.
One of the coaches had to lobby real hard for Fulmer to even watch Foster's tapes; he was the lowest rated RB in that RB draft class for the Vols.

The cafeteria doesn't open all the time.
Between school (he graduated), practice, training, I can see these athletes' need to have their own food at times.

Did you or your brothers need to send money back home for mom to make ends meet and to help out with the siblings behind??

Everyone's situation is unique.

It was open when it needed to be open. Athletes are fed like kings. I gained 20lbs in my short stint. My two brothers gained close to 200 lbs between them. The elder one went in at around 235 and left at 345. I mean, unless you're a raging pothead, there's plenty of food throughout the day.

FWIW, it doesn't bother me one bit that he took money. I just don't buy the "needed food" and crap
