George Teague savagely trolls Lamar Thomas in social media post

George Teague returns an interception for a TD versus Miami in 1993 Sugar Bowl

It is never too early to start the hype for Alabama’s season opener against Miami.

George Teague, a Crimson Tide alumnus, has brought the intensity. He played at cornerback and free safety (1989-92) at the University of Alabama and became a legend on defense.

One of Teague’s greatest plays during his career happened in the 1993 Sugar Bowl for a national championship. He intercepted a pass off Hurricanes’ quarterback Gino Torretta and returned it for a touchdown. After that, he ran down Lamar Thomas and stripped the ball from him. Teague’s second marquee play was negated because of a penalty; however, it took Miami out of rhythm. With the Tide and Hurricanes meeting to open this season, Teague decided to troll Thomas on social media. The moment he had at the Louisiana Superdome (now Mercedes-Benz Superdome) in New Orleans, La. will never be forgotten. Alabama earned a 34-13 victory and secured a national title for the 1992 season.

This year’s matchup will take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Sept. 4 at 2:30 pm.
