Hot-take artist Clay Travis called up hot-take central — The Paul Finebaum Show — on Friday afternoon to dish out his latest steamer.
“Michigan State is going to get destroyed, wiped clean off of the planet by Alabama,” he said. “It’s a blood bank guarantee.”
Before his bold Cotton Bowl prediction, the FOX Sports writer unleashed an excellent stat nugget: The Big Ten has not had a quarterback selected in the first round since Penn State’s Kerry Collins in 1995.
In that time, according to Travis, 11 of the 14 SEC schools have produced a first-round signal-caller.
The stat serves as a strong rebuttal to non-SEC fans who have been ragging on Alabama for not producing a single NFL quarterback win in 28 years.
