Arian Foster previously admitted publicly that he received money from boosters while at Tennessee. Asked to put a dollar amount on what he pocketed during his stint in Knoxville, Foster estimated it ran somewhere in the neighborhood of ’40, 50 grand’. Needless to say, much hilarity resulted from the admission as players who knew Foster then jumped all over that figure.
So eventually came the backtrack. Such as it was.
LMAO. He’s just a little bit pregnant, Vols.

I hate these kind of stories cause I’m always worried about the “glass houses” thing. That being said, the Gurley situation tells me that either he didn’t have much money flowing his way or he was simply greedy. Based on what I’ve read and observed of the kid he doesn’t strike me as greedy. Hopefully that bodes well for our program and/or boosters.
“It was more like 48k.”
I wonder how much Eric Dickerson got handed by SMU boosters in the wide open back in the early 80’s? Those were the days…
Think fans from opponent schools say that about Hershel?
Auburn, Tennessee, Clemson.
Bama, Ole Miss, Texas A&M
Dirty as Dirt.
Don’t disagree that those schools seem to be “more dirty” but every major program has had some of this going on for decades. When it gets past the point of the “hundred dollar handshake”, or a free meal in a restaurant, it should be addressed. Which is all the more reason to allow a reasonable stipend to players so you can then crack down on the TN, Auburn, Old Miss, etc. programs. Tens of thousands of dollars, vehicles, jobs for parents, schollies for girlfriends, etc., should result in bowl bans, scholarship losses, and forfeiting of games.
Only $40-$50 grand? Cam Newton laughs.
