Former Ohio State Running Back Robert Smith Trolls Alabama, SEC Over "Disadvantage" Comment

The SEC is at a disadvantage when it comes to the College Football Playoff. That's what Gus Malzahn thinks, anyway. The Auburn coach believes the conference is so tough that its teams are less fresh than their opponents come January. 

Malzahn's comments, unsurprisingly, have drawn criticism from nearly everyone not associated with the SEC. 

Perhaps the best trolling has come from Robert Smith. The former Ohio State running back and current ESPN college football analyst said this in response to Malzahn. 

In case you forgot: in the SEC Championship Game, Alabama beat Missouri, which lost to Big Ten basement dweller Indiana. The Crimson Tide then went on to lose to Ohio State, which started its third-string quarterback.
