During the summer, TideNation will analyze each of the scholarship players on the Alabama roster -- excluding the Tide's 2013 recruiting class -- in our Crimson Countdown series. Starting with No. 1 Dee Hart, we will go through the roster numerically, finishing with No. 99 Brandon Ivory.
No. 43 Cade Foster
Senior place kicker
Expectations for 2013: Foster turned the corner in a big way as a junior, rebounding from a shaky sophomore season in which he was largely blamed for a key loss to LSU in which he missed three of four field-goal attempts. He used that setback to fuel a 2012 campaign in which he made four field goals of 40 yards or more and put a whopping 46 kickoffs back for a touchback. With Jeremy Shelley now gone, the question is whether Foster can go from the Tide's long-range kicker to the starting place kicker in every way.
