During the lead up to Alabama's 10-0 win over LSU Saturday night, there was some trash talk directed at the Tide courtesy of the Tigers. LSU defensive back Dwayne Thomas even stated he didn't care if all the talk coming from LSU became inspiration for the Tide.
He might care now.
The Alabama defense thoroughly dominated LSU and Leonard Fournette and played with chip on their shoulder the entire night. After the game several Tide players confessed to having been motivated by the words of LSU.
Alabama's players don't take too well to being disrespected before games and Saturday night was another prime example of what happens when you play an angry Crimson tide defense.
