Alabama fans, teammates rally around Foster

Dec. 1, 2013 MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama fans and teammates have rallied around kicker Cade Foster.

Foster missed two field goal attempts and had a third blocked in Saturday's 34-28 loss to Auburn that likely doomed Alabama's national title hopes. The initial backlash of angry and sometimes threatening messages to Foster on Twitter turned supportive by Sunday.

A fan page titled "Bama fans supporting Cade Foster" was approaching 40,000 "likes" by Sunday afternoon. It included a message that negative posts would be deleted.

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron tweeted: "If u blame this on 1 guy U aren't a true fan!"

Linebacker C.J. Mosley urged his Twitter followers to "stop sending threats to my teammates."

Auburn won on Chris Davis' 100-yard return of a missed field goal attempt by Adam Griffith, who tried the potential game-winning 57-yard kick in place of Foster.
