Tyrone Prothro Tweets That He Isn't Bitter At All With Alabama, Loves His School

Former Alabama wide receiver Tyrone Prothro is a part of Ed O'Bannon's class action lawsuit against the NCAA. Yesterday, he testified in a U.S. District courtroom in Oakland, Calif. to discuss what makes being a student-athlete difficult. 

Prothro, who notably ended his playing career after suffering a gruesome leg injury during an October 2005 game against Florida, talked about the concept of players getting paid, how much school's care about their athletes getting an education, and many more topics during a roughly one-hour testimony. 

Much of what Prothro--who currently works as as an account manager for Coca-Cola--said during the trial seemed to put his alma mater in a negative light. Prothro, though, set the record straight today.

Prothro graduated from the Tuscaloosa school in 2008 with a degree in general studies because "that's the major they kind of put me in," he tweeted.
