    Sure they do. They just recover it three days later.

    Re: Adrian Peterson is a Savior

    On Thursday, word broke that Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and three other unnamed NFL players were putting together roughly $150,000 to save the football program at NIACC.

    It was a great story, a welcome respite from the endless talk of drunk driving and marijuana possession.

    And, of course, it wasn’t true.

    Assistant coach Kevin Griffin admitted Friday that he never actually spoke to Peterson about the situation.

    “I made a mistake and anything that comes out of this falls on me,” said Griffin.
    “Nothing ever came out of Adrian’s mouth.”

    “I should have said I’ll try to get the money from him and other people.”

    Agreed.
    I wouldn't be surprised if AP and/ or some other players (Greenway?)
    gets these people the funds for the program.

    An assistant coach at North Iowa Area Community College admitted Friday night that Vikings Pro Bowl running back Adrian Peterson never offered to help save the school's football program, the Globe Gazette of Mason City, Iowa, reported....

    Coach Admits Peterson Story Was a Lie

    Just three days after Northern Iowa Area Community College announced it was shutting down its football program, head coach Steve LaLonde proclaimed that their 2009 season had been saved after Vikings tailback Adrian Peterson and three other unnamed players had donated the money to fund the team.

    Re: Coach Admits Peterson Story Was a Lie

    Very poor attempt at saving the team, especially this:

    Peterson is another victim in all this, as he looks like a bad guy when, in reality, he never was involved.
