After that huge first half by Bo Scarbrough, the Alabama running back is garnering national attention. He rushed for a pair of touchdowns in the first half of Monday’s national championship game against Clemson, helping the Crimson Tide get out to a 14-7 lead.
That national attention includes former college standouts — including former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins who took to Twitter to make his own joke regarding Scarbrough.
Cousins tweeted a pair of pictures — one of Scarbrough in 10th grade and one of himself in 11th grade. And there is quite a size difference, which Cousins joked was likely the reason Alabama didn’t recruit him when he was in high school.
Take a look at Cousins’ tweet below:
