Arian Foster Speaks a Dead Language

Apparently the Tennessee running back is fluent in pterodactyl.

Practice had just ended last week. The Tennessee starting tailback, a senior on the verge of becoming UT's all-time leading rusher, was requested for media interviews.

He had a demand: whoever interviewed him had to speak Pterodactyl, some made-up dinosaur language. No interview was conducted.

Some things simply cannot be made up.

With the way the season has started, however, one has to wonder if now is the best time for cute games. Fulmer is, by some estimates, sitting on one of the hottest seats in the country, and the Vols are facing a very real possibility of missing a bowl game if they don't get things under control.

Tennessee barely escaped formidable MAC opponent Northern Illinois this past weekend and they travel to Athens to face Georgia, whose last game was a humbling experience at the hands of a resurgent Alabama team. Things could get ugly, and quick, for the Vols.

Then again, with the outlook as bleak as it is for the Vols, maybe now is the perfect time for a little levity. Veeeek veeeeeek, Mr. Foster.
