Rule No. 1 in college football… Never pick against Alabama.

Lee Corso is the beloved member of ESPN’s College Football GameDay. He’s known as the one who wears the headgear of the team he picks to win each week. In previewing Alabama’s meeting with LSU, Corso grabbed the headgear of Mike the Tiger—which bothered former Crimson Tide linebacker Reggie Ragland.

He took to Twitter to state his issue with the pick.

Ragland helped the Tide win two of its five meetings against LSU since the 2012 BCS national title game.

The former All-American, Butkus Award finalist and SEC’s Defensive Player of the Year led Alabama in tackles last season (102), prior to being selected in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills.
