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.
