    With so much negativity in the press these days, I am glad to see 1) a kid doing good things with his good fortune, and 2) that the media found out about it and covered it. Stories like this NEED to be in the news.

    I hope this story prompts others to do the same.

    Roll Tide!

    What an awesome story, love to read things like this. With all the negative press these young men get nowadays, it's great to hear about some of the good ones (of which there are many).

    Props to Exum and his teammates.

    This is how I know, "Before they parted ways, Exum took a picture of the four of them and posted it on Twitter". All I'm saying is that sometimes you do things to make yourself feel good and the whole world does not need to know about it. But like some of you have said maybe others will see this and do the same thing. RTR

    Do these posts make you feel as good about yourself as the player feels about doing this one act of kindness?

    You have a very skewed view of the world if you think this kid did this to "make himself feel good." If he wanted to make himself feel good, he would have used the $470 for himself and posted pics of his LOOT on Twitter. As we all know, kids post EVERYTHING on Twitter.

    It is amazing how you see this in a negative light. It is also amazing how you think the world doesn't need to know about it. Good deeds should spread like wildfire. I guess you would have rather seen him posting pics from a strip club, signing secretly with an agent or snatching the last iPad mini away from a child?

    I'm glad this got out, it could possibly give other players the idea to do it in the future. Imagine a whole team giving this up one year to a certain charity.

    Would it be some violation if the Bama players did this for Nick's Kids or the Austin Shepard Foundation? That would be a really cool thing for them to do.

    That's a good question. I would think not, but I would think CNS would possibly steer them elsewhere to avoid a conflict of interest. With todays media they would probably raise all kinds of crap over it sadly.

    What a great gesture...especially from a young person. I'd love to see this become a trend for players in bowl games.
