We are a week and a half away from the 2017 Iron Bowl, but that hasn’t stopped wagers from being placed.
According to al.com, former Auburn basketball legend Charles Barkley and current Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts have placed a fun bet on the result of the game.
The NBA Hall of Famer revealed his little bet with Hurts which came about over the offseason.
It is pretty simple: the loser of the bet must wear a jersey of the winning team.
“Jalen Hurts challenged me to a bet, and I ain’t forgot it, Jalen,” Barkley said. “I’m either going to wear an Alabama jersey on TV or he’s going to have to wear (an Auburn jersey) on campus. … I’ve got the jersey coming.
“My Tigers need to win because I don’t want to wear that crap on TNT.”
As far as the bet goes, it would be much better to see Barkley forced to wear an Alabama jersey live on “Inside the NBA.” If Auburn wins, we’re just going to have to rely on photos from campus showing Hurts walk around. But if the Crimson Tide wins, Sir Charles will be forced to wear the jersey of his most hated rival for the entire world to see.
