Johns is ripping on Sly Croom this week, and I don't blame him. I lost some respect for Croom after all his "Alabama doesn't play with the class we did" sour grapes comments last year, and it looks like Johns isn't too pleased with his behavior either. Johns was recruited heavily by State and was apparently considered a silent verbal before visiting Alabama and choosing to play for the Tide.
"We went 10-2 last year, went to the Cotton Bowl, won the Cotton Bowl," he said. "I don't know what Mississippi State did. This year we're 5-3, two plays from being (7-1), one quarter from being 8-0. We're not low class. We play hard, play like champions."
He also has a message for us:
Here's hoping we play like champions Saturday and Johns gets plenty of opportunities to show why he's in Crimson and White.
