After Alabama completely waxed Michigan State 38-0 in last night’s Cotton Bowl victory to earn a spot in the championship game, it’s only fitting that a fiery individual like running back Kenyan Drake would take to Twitter to silence the haters and troll the Spartans.
And troll the Spartans he did, and HARD, in reference to a bit of a flop he did after barely being touched on the sideline.

Which was the worse flop? 🤔🤔

It’s a low blow, but Drake is right. This game was expected to be a low-scoring defensive battle from start to finish, with questions about how Alabama would solve Michigan State’s strong defense, and the Spartans just ended up looking flat the moment that Alabama first scored on them. The team had just 29 rush yards on the game and the defense severely underestimated Crimson Tide quarterback Jake Coker, who completed 25 of 30 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns, including a 50-yard bomb to freshman Calvin Ridley.
Simply put, those who have issue with Drake’s tweet can simply go to the tape and try to prove him wrong.
