Before taking the field for last night’s National Championship game, Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough was heard, and videotaped, yelling “Fuck Trump” as the Crimson Tide made their way from the locker room to the field.
The comment came just moments after President Trump walked out onto the field prior to the singing the national anthem. Alabama and Georgia players were not on the field for the playing the national anthem, but came out shortly after.

Despite the video evidence, Scarbrough has since denied making the anti-trump remark and says everyone simply misheard him.
After Alabama’s 26-23 overtime victory against Georgia, the junior running back quote-tweeted the video footage, “If y’all really listen I said Georgia smh about y’all people in this world.”
According to AL.com, Scarbrough also told reporters,
“I’m just trying to celebrate the win,” Scarbrough said. “Those type words didn’t come out my mouth.”
