Hours after Ohio State wideout Mike Thomas took jabs at Alabama’s ranking and schedule, Crimson Tide cornerback Cyrus Jones responded on Twitter.
The senior called Thomas “delusional,” adding that “something must be in that Columbus air.”
Alabama is ranked six spots in front of Ohio State in the AP Top 25 Poll and will likely be at least four spots ahead of the Buckeyes when the College Football Playoff rankings are released Tuesday night.
The defending national champion will likely need No. 1 Clemson and No. 2 Alabama to lose this weekend in order to sneak into the 2015 Playoff field.
