Players for Alabama and Georgia were kept in the locker room as President Trump walked onto the field ahead of the national anthem at Monday’s national championship game — the usual procedure for most college football games.
That didn’t stop Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough from allegedly voicing his objections to Trump, who has for months railed against NFL players protesting over racial inequality and police brutality during The Star-Spangled Banner.
“F--- Trump!” the junior from Northport, Ala., appeared to yell before taking the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The Sporting News first tweeted video that included the insult.
Scarbrough, however, tweeted after the game he said Georgia, not Trump.
The outburst by Scarbrough drew a quick response on social media.
