Add Greg McElroy to the list of people that have gone on the record regarding Kayvon Thibodeaux’s comments on the quality of education at Alabama.

McElroy, of course, has a vested interest in the subject as he graduated from the university in 3 years with a 3.85 GPA and later received a 4.0 while obtaining a master’s degree. So it wasn’t a surprise that he had such a strong reaction to what Thibodeaux said during a Monday interview with Joel Klatt.

“I just take real personal offense, man,” McElroy said on Thursday during “McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning” on WJOX in Birmingham. “I genuinely do. I don’t care. Don’t come. If you think so little of us, don’t come. Fine by me, because I know the people that live in this state. I chose Alabama, because I love Alabama.”

McElroy also issued a challenge to Thibodeaux.

“As someone who has always taken his academic situation very seriously, I’ll just come at him with this‐if he’d like to take an IQ test, I’m available. If he’d like to take the Wonderlic test, I’m available,” he said. “As a proud graduate with multiple degrees from Alabama, I will put my degree up against his any day of the week…

“I would be willing to bet that Harvard didn’t offer him. I think they probably would have taken him, but Harvard did offer me—as did Yale, as did Princeton, as did almost every Ivy League school along with Duke, Stanford, Northwestern and Vanderbilt. And I chose Alabama, so put ‘er there, Kayvon Thibodeaux.”
