When ESPN analyst David Pollack took a shot at Alabama kicker Cade Foster, Foster was quick to respond.

@davidpollack47 I've taken hell from people but wouldn't expect that from someone who had a successful football career and is an "expert"

In the now-famous Iron Bowl matchup between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Auburn, the usually reliable Foster was called upon to kick three field goals, of which he made zero. Alabama would go on to lose 34-28.

Pollack quickly attempted to clarify that he did not intend to mock the Alabama kicker, but by then, it was too late. 

Numerous Alabama players chimed in to show Foster their support.

@Foster_43 don't pay attention to someone especially when their opinion means zero at all. We will go to war on the field with you any day!
