I don't twitter things .. but i can google and research and pay attention to modern means of communication. Caring about what these recruits are doing is why most of you pay money to this site.
In any case .. i'd like to know what school lied and about what. Seems likely it was this Saban/NFL thing. Saban is from Ohio is he not? I know he played football at Kent State.
The bottom half of the Big is worse in my opinion. Alot worse.
Saban is actually from Fairmont WV. The same with Mary Lou Retton and some other football coach who used to coach WVU.
I'd be willing to bet it's the Saban to Cleveland rumors about him and Mike Lombardi going back to Cleveland together. If you go back and watch the NFL football life show about Belichik they go over about how Lombardi and Saban were part of that staff and how they felt bad they couldn't get it turned around before the move.
I wouldn't be suprised if both Saban and Lombardi wanted to go back and finish what they started + Saban proving he can coach in the NFL. Foster probably asked, will you be here for 4 years, Saban said yup, next day he hears about Saban to NFL rumors.
Think about it, what could Pitt lie about? Not position they are recruiting him for or PT, as he's a WR no doubt and there is very little doubt he'll start opposite Street next year.
Yeah then again if he's a Pitt lock then why does he care? It means 2 things 1 he's not sure where he wants to go yet. 2 he is going to choose BAMA. If that is what foster is referring to.
Does it? He didn't say I hate when colleges lie to you, now I have to re-think this again. He just said, I hate when colleges lie to you....and we all know about how bad he hates the receuiting process. He could just be stating his dissapproval of the lie, but then took it off because he knew it would cause 100000000 people to ask what the lie is and also how pissed said school would be because he called their coach a liar.
He's a Pitt lock.
It's amusing how some folks anguish over and mince every word an 18 year old says. I often wonder whether or not kids say stuff just for kicks to see how grown adults on message boards over react.
A "Real PITT MAN"............get off my porch!
It's in bad taste to screw with people. But if you're bored enough you'll do just about anything for a laugh. People .. gotta love em.
Is Foster pissed about JoJo Kemp wearing a #4 jersey in that locker room pic? It can't be that can it? Could they have promised @DROB_4 the jersey #?
That's a heck of an observation BG. Gotta doubt that (Shell wears #4) .. seems more likely to be the Saban stuff. But i don't think it means he was leaning towards Alabama. I think he's looking for reasons to justify selecting Pitt. Rationalization? Nothing wrong with that.

Maybe that's why they're talking on twitter now !!!!!
BG, you're on the ball man.
I also think Bama had a WR in town this past weekend who was previously / may still be a soft verbal to USC. Perhaps they told him he was their one and only WR target?
There is no way that if kemp and foster commit that they will let kemp wear the #4. I think if even someone on offense was wearing #4 the coaches would say you have to change your # lol. Shell isn't gonna wear #4 next year I'm sure shell already told foster if he committed he would let foster get #4.
Shell should wear #34. He's a beast.
Shell is gonna go back to #1
You mean #33
#34 .. ironhead
The thing is, I'm pretty sure the jersey numbers are always the High School numbers of the visitors. That's true, but it's also an obvious and easy explanation if that's the reason Foster is upset.
That would seem like a silly thing to be upset about, but wide receivers tend to focus on style points.
I'll rephrase Weedlines question. What are the reasons Pitt fans believe he is going to choose Pitt?
- He absolutely loves Bobby Engram. He's been recruiting him the hardest.
- His mom LOVES Pitt and the coaching staff. We are guessing that his mom may steer the decision more than his dad.
- Pitt has a great history with Beaver County kids.
- He's good friends with Rushel Shell [commit from last year] and Chandler Kincaide [2014 QB Commit]. Starting a few years ago, they all talked about playing together at Pitt.
- We all talk about playing time and not having as much in his way to get on the field. I don't know if he has ever said that himself.
- Pitt is closer.
There may be other things but that is off the top of my head. Obviously Alabama has a TON of selling points. But we think that those points above [+ possibly more] are the edges for Pitt in the end.
I may be wrong but I think he's Todd Thomas cousin as well. Boyd and foster want to play together. Foster has tons of friends on the team. He will be able to go home whenever he wants to hang out with his friends/ family. Also family could see every game.
Looks like we'll know soon. Friday he'll announce. The Bama mods hear he wants to go to Bama, but his Mom wants him close at Pitt. They won't make a prediction.
We've been down this road before with out of state recruits. Last year it worked out well for us with Landon Collins. But usually momma will get her way in these battles. We just have a lot more going for us than the average out of state school. But if Mom gets sick of the cold, she could always move down here.
Either way, good luck and screw the Irish

My guess is that foster is going to Alabama,
Your guess is wrong. He's a Pitt lock and has been from day1.
We'll find out who is full of IT on friday i guess.
