Justin Thomas is siding with Auburn

Justin Thomas has a history with the University of Alabama. The professional golfer spent three good years there during his studies. That’s how you’d expect him to endorse the Alabama Crimson Tides when it comes to the Iron Bowl rivalry.

Iron Bowl is the name given to the rivalry between the Auburn University Tigers and the University of Alabama Crimson Tide in the world of college football.

However, as it turned out, this was not the case. On a call during the game, Justin Thomas openly came out in support of the Auburn Tigers.

justin wrote, “That was a terrible decision in Alabama’s favor … I feel like I’ve missed more obvious calls this year than any other season I’ve watched football. (hate to say it) but Auburn got screwed there!”

He described it as a horrible phone call. What actually happened was that the Tigers’ punt returnee, Keionte Scott, called for a fair catch. However, he failed to catch the ball as it went through his hands. The call on the field was in favor of the Alabama Crimson Tide. But when the case was examined more closely, it turned out that Keionte did not touch the ball.

This sparked calls for the original call to be lifted. However, this did not happen and the original call prevailed. Justin disagreed, refusing to set aside his legacy as a University of Alabama graduate student.

He also spoke about how there has been an increase in apparently missed calls this year. He compared the same to previous years in college football and noted a sharp increase.
