    Arian Foster says UT boosters gave him '40, 50 grand,' then backtracks

    Former Tennessee Volunteers running back Arian Foster created a stir on Friday when he first said he was given $40,000-$50,000 in cash by boosters while playing football at the university before backtracking via a series of tweets.

    Foster has been open in the past about taking money during his time in college, but during a radio interview with ESPN's Dan LeBatard, Foster explained how things went down for him between 2005-08 while Philip Fulmer was head coach.

    "You have people help you out here and there," Foster said. "Boosters and alumni and ex-players, they all know how it is, man. It's hard living check to check when you don't have enough money to go out to the movies or any kind of leisure activity. And you're not allowed to get a job. Especially when I was in college, they were a lot more stringent on those rules, so at any given chance I got the opportunity, I took a free handout. Absolutely."

    I wonder if he thinks that check to check living sacrifice was worth it now.

    Vols have an interesting set of circumstances regarding their basketball coach too. Good times!

    Vols hire former scUM (under LLLLLLLLoyd) OC, Mike DeBord. Butch Jones just hit the self destruct button. :slappy:

    How in the world does Butch recruit so well, yet still have bad to below average teams?!? Is he giving roofies to kids to get them to commit? Does he have black mail info on parents? Just wonder how these kids get convinced to average in the SEC east and lose in 3rd tier bowl games. And then dress like prison inmates

    I think it's really been just this year and last that he's been recruiting well. Dooley left that program a dumpster fire, so he has a mighty large hole to dig out of.

    I believe that Kiffin left them in a hole as well. But he was also recruiting at a high rate towards mediocrity on the field

    It would be hilarious if some of those boosters were members of the Haslam family.

    Never realized how much Butch Jones looks like Farva from Super troopers.

    Thank you, Stoops. The last thing the CFB world needed was a bunch of "tennessee is back!" nonsense. Fuck rocky top and fuck clay travis.

    What a choke job by the Vols today. They have now lost to Florida 11 straight years. There has been some murmuring from the Vol "faithful" following the Oklahoma debacle concerning Butch Jones'coaching abilities. Now, the fanbase is out for blood. #botchjones and #firebutch are trending heavily.

    Meanwhile, I'm just sitting back enjoying the warmth provided by the dumpster fire that has been Tennessee football over the last 7-8 years.
