Bob, if that's the case it would seem that he really didn't want to have this presser today. It seems to me that it will be a wait and see until LOI day.
Really odd. It certainly isnt making me feel better, though I guess it means he was pretty conflicted. That is a small glimmer of hope.
He still has his in home visit left, and will use it next month..just FYI
No doubt... this guy is an absolute idiot
With how emotional Foster was, and how everything just seemed like a thank you for everyone before I leave, as I was watching the stream I was very much under the impression, based on the tone, that he was going to pick Bama before the words ever came out of his mouth.
My amateur psychologist in me tells me he picked where he really wanted to go, though it is the less familiar or safe route for him. But was obviously really close to people in and around Pitt and would have liked to stay too...it just seemed like the emotion coming out was the realization that he was, in fact, moving on and was sort of also saying goodbye by picking Bama. I therefore don't expect any changes come LOI day. I'm not even sure Saban leaving for the NFL would change that.
It's a bummer, because he seems like the type of kid, character wise, that you want at Pitt, whether he plays a down of football or not.
But in the five years between 2006-2010 Pitt finished ahead of Wisconsin every year in Bob's previous employer's recruiting rankings. It's not just about gathering stars. If we have the coach we think, and hope we do, we'll be just fine.

Butthurt .. you must be 15 years old .. or the mental equivalent.
Alabama and its fans are all just one big fad. Foster jumped on the bandwagon. Hope he enjoys the easy path.
He picked the hardest path he could've. Staying at home was the easy decision. Close to home. Close to family. Close to friends.
I swear, whenever I'm having a low moment and think I've forgotten a lot of football or - worse just don't know any football - I'm coming back here to check in on Pitt000000000008. The rest of you guys are pretty cool.
It is obviously easier to join the team that's stacked. Don't you agree?
It's also easier when mom and dad will be receiving a fat check in the mail every week.
I'll end this with .. most of us up north don't like you and most of you don't like us. That's just fine by me. I'll cheer loudly for Notre Dame. That's my prerogative. Can you now please show some class and leave .. instead of remaining here .. and antagonizing?
Up until last night he told his mother and coach he was going to Pitt
Don't dislike you guys at all. Cheer, cheer for old Notre Dame. We wouldn't have it any other way.
Question for Bob Lichtenfels - what was your prediction on all this?
this was from DiPaolo's trib story:
“I visited Coach Saban three or four times,” Foster said. “We have a real close relationship. We know each other real tight.
