There's no love lost between Alabama and Georgia. The two SEC programs have become bitter rivals both on and off the field.

Alabama has produced a plethora of NFL prospects during the Nick Saban era. Even when those players are no longer with the football team, the program still takes care of them.

Over the years, the Crimson Tide have sent out care packages to former players. Now, the Georgia Bulldogs are doing the same exact thing.

Former Alabama linebacker Reggie Ragland decided to call out Georgia for copying his alma mater.

On Friday, Ragland blasted his teammate and former Georgia wide receiver Mecole Hardman because he received a care package from the Bulldogs.

“Georgia wants to be like us so bad,” Ragland told Hardman. “Isn’t that right, Mecole? Y’all want to be like us so bad with the box. Man, that’s crazy.”

Hardman had a fair response to Ragland, telling him that Kirby Smart sends out care packages because he came from Alabama's coaching system. However, Ragland believes that Georgia's head coach should do something else instead to show his support.

NFL players do an excellent job of showing their school pride even when they're done with college.

If Alabama and Georgia meet again in the SEC Championship, it'll be fun to see how Ragland and Hardman trash talk each other.
