Cade Foster tweets his thanks for support after Iron Bowl

Cade Foster broke his post-Iron Bowl Twitter silence on Tuesday to thank his family, friends, teammates and fans for their support.

Foster was 0-3 on field goal attempts during Alabama's 34-28 loss to Auburn. With just over five minutes left in the fourth quarter and Foster 0-2, coach Nick Saban eschewed a 30-yard field goal in favor of going for it on fourth and less than a yard. Alabama was stopped by Auburn.

After the game, Foster was the focus of ridiculous and threatening tweets from Alabama fans, which prompted linebacker CJ Mosley to tweet this:

Then following Mosley's tweet, a Facebook page that now has almost 86,000 "likes" was created in support of Foster, and the page (of course) was even selling t-shirts.
