Alabama's Alphonse Taylor Blasts Tom Brokaw, Ole Miss After Commencement Joke

This past Saturday, NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw, seemingly out of nowhere, took a shot at the Alabama's academics during his commencement speech at Ole Miss. It looks like at least one player on the Crimson Tide has gotten wind of the dig.

Crimson Tide offensive lineman Alphonse Taylor, after seeing home headlines on Paul Finebaum's Twitter account, went on a Twitter rant, blasting both Brokaw and Ole Miss. He boasted that he's already graduated from school and that he's working on a graduate degree.

Brokaw was likely just trying to get a rise out of Ole Miss faithful - but it's interesting that Taylor felt the need to respond. It looks like he takes his academics seriously.
