Shaq makes outrageous bet with Ernie Johnson Jr. about Georgia in the national championship
Shaquille O’Neal has gone out on a big limb ahead of the national championship game between TCU and Georgia on Monday at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
The former LSU and NBA star made an outrageous bet on the “Inside the NBA” show on TNT with Georgia super fan Ernie Johnson Jr., who said Georgia will win 45-17 to win its second straight national championship.
O’Neal responded, “Ernie, can I make you a bet?”
Johnson, “Yes, what’s the bet?”
O’Neal: “If Georgia beats TCU, I’ll eat some frogs. I’ll eat a horned frog.”
They shook on it, and then Charles Barkley chimed in, and added that Johnson gave him 17 points in the game, where the betting line opened at 13.5 points, and has since dropped slightly.
