Kicker Cade Foster has taken the brunt of Alabama’s stunning loss to Auburn.
As people on twitter hurled insults, compiled vulgar messages and made death threats the kicker attempted to hide himself by changing his name and icon.
Foster missed two field goals and had a third one blocked as Alabama lost to Auburn on Saturday. The game was ultimately decided when freshman kicker Adam Griffith missed a 57 yard yard attempt and it was returned 109 yards for a Auburn touchdown and ultimately a win.
Some Alabama players have come to the defense of Foster including Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron.
I told him, ‘Hold your head high.’ It’s one loss. We still have a chance to play for a BCS bowl game.
Cade’s a great kid. It wasn’t all his fault. Other people struggled. I love him to death and I have all the confidence in him in the world that he could go out there right now and make the kicks. The one thing about him is he needs to keep his head high and be proud.
Like I said, football is just a game. It’s not life. Times like this people need to realize the sun’s going to rise tomorrow (ESPN).
With the loss Alabama dropped to No. 4 in the AP Poll with Auburn move up to No. 3 with an SEC Championship match-up against Missouri left on their schedule.
