An Alabama Crimson Tide fan sported a hilarious “Mama Tried” Landon Collins No. 26 jersey to troll LSU.
Sophomore free safety Landon Collins was all over the field in Alabama’s dominating, 38-17 win over rival LSU on Saturday. However, if his mother had had her way a couple of years ago, he would have been wearing the Tigers’ purple and yellow during Week 11 of the 2013 college football season.
For those who don’t remember, Collins was a five-star prospect out of New Orleans. His school decision was televised nationally at the Under Armour All-America Game. When he chose Alabama over in-state LSU, his mother was less than pleased.
After the blowout win on Sunday, Collins admitted to reporters that dominating LSU was extra sweet.
“It’s definitely extra sweet,” he said. “Just showing everybody that I picked the better team.”
So now that we’ve cleared up the backstory, let’s take another look at this clever custom troll job.
