The rivalry between Alabama and Tennessee never ends, even with the NFL draft tonight.
Alabama assistant Josh Gattis made a point to ridicule other schools for trying to brag about the success of former Crimson Tide players, with his finger seemingly pointed at Tennessee and new coach Jeremy Pruitt.

Why does he feel to make the distinction? It is because Pruitt is boasting about the players that have made the NFL from the other schools where he and his assistants have coached, including Alabama.

Certainly Alabama fans will love a Tennessee logo being next to some of their favorite players, but let’s take a quick look at this: is Gattis bragging about what Alabama has done when he just joined the Crimson Tide staff this offseason? Hmmm. A little of the pot calling the kettle black.
