NFL Josh Jacobs, Mark Ingram, more react to Alabama’s SEC win vs. Georgia
NFL players seem to always remember their alma maters, especially when their team continue to succeed. This is continuously the case for University of Alabama alumni. Saturday night, the Crimson Tide defeated the previously undefeated Georgia Bulldogs. This win earned head coach Nick Sabban and his team the SEC Championship title. Many NFL players expressed their emotions to the win on Twitter following the big 41-24 win.
Minkah Fitzpatrick kept his message short and sweet. The Steelers safety tagged the Crimson Tide in his tweet: Three words ROLL. TIDE. ROLL.
ROLL. TIDE. ROLL.@AlabamaFTBL

Josh Jacobs also used the team’s iconic tag in his post game tweet. The star Raiders running back tweeted, “ROLL DAMN TIDE” complete with exclamation mark emojis.
ROLL DAMN TIDE ‼️‼️‼️

Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey took a slightly different approach of support by criticizing the Bulldogs. “Fake undefeateds DO NOT BELONG in College football,” the Alabama native wrote.

Humphrey’s teammate, Bradley Bozeman, actually predicted the way the game was going to go. Slightly biased as an Alabama alumnus, the center actually hit it on the nose.
THEY CALLED ME CRAZY!! ROLL DAMN TIDE!!!!! LET’S GOOOOO!!! https://t.co/SeZnHu4en9

Finally, an alumnus that can be seen tweeting about Alabama’s ridiculously successful football team every Saturday. Saints running back Mark Ingram II wouldn’t miss the opportunity to commend his alma mater. He definitely had the best tweet tonight with a hilariously photoshopped GIF of Nick Sabban dancing around in a robe.
