Mark Ingram wants to be very clear that although Georgia might have won one national championship, Alabama still runs things. The 32-year-old running back is long distanced from his college days, but his passion for the Crimson Tide does not waver.

On Tuesday night, the NFL hosted a Twitter space with three former first round draft picks. Ingram was among them.

While in the conversation, the former Heisman Trophy winner was given the chance for an “Alabama rebuttal” about the recent loss to the Bulldogs. Ingram did not hold back.

In response to the single national championship win, Ingram proceeded to call Georgia out for their lack of historic success. He said that when they have 18 national championships, then they can talk. When they have won six national championships in the last 12 years, then they can talk.

Additionally, Ingram credited Georgia’s 2021/22 national championship to Alabama anyway, because Kirby Smart learned how to be a winner under Nick Saban. There was no hesitation on Ingram’s end. He was ready to go and had his facts and numbers prepared.

During Ingram’s time at Alabama, he was not only named the best player in college football, he won a national championship in 2009/10. Since then, the Crimson Tide won in 2011, 2012, 2015, 2017 and 2020 and finished as the runners-up three times. On the other side of things, the Bulldogs have won once and finished as the runners-up just once.

Mark Ingram doesn’t want to get it twisted as to who is atop the SEC, and Alabama is once again the preseason No. 1 in 2022.
