WASHINGTON — Kirk Cousins played football at Michigan State, a very good school that few will reasonably scoff at.
However, when it comes to college football prowess, few will argue it’s a better option to be recruited to than Alabama, the national powerhouse that has gone 119-19 in the 10 years Nick Saban has been at the helm. Prior to Monday night’s upset loss in the College Football Championship to Clemson, the Crimson Tide had won four of the past national titles, including in 2015.
Even if a top prospect isn’t interested in attending the school, it’s got to be flattering to be recruited by such a dominant squad.
Cousins expressed remorse at what he missed out on Monday night with the following tweet:
That’s Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough, who carried the ball 16 times for 93 yards and two touchdowns against Clemson. Scarbrough is a physical specimen, officially listed at 6-foot-2, 228 pounds with seemingly about one percent body fat.
Well, at least Cousins knows how to poke fun at himself.
