Joe Burrow couldn't leave Baton Rouge without taking one last shot at Alabama
To the victor go the spoils.
That’s clearly something Joe Burrow believes as LSU’s Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback was celebrated as a conquering hero on Saturday in Baton Rouge as the Tigers held their 2019 National Championship parade following a weekslong celebration following the team’s 42-25 win over Clemson in the title game showdown.
The campus parade ended inside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center where 15,000 LSU fans came inside to celebrate the program’s latest national championship while several thousand other Tiger fans celebrated outside the basketball arena.
During his time at the mic, Burrow decided he would take the opportunity to throw one final shot at Alabama following all of LSU’s success this season, including the Tigers’ 46-41 win in Tuscaloosa back on Nov. 9.
“The final scoreboard didn’t show it, but that was complete dominance,” Burrow noted of the Alabama game.
Just when it looked like Burrow could not find a way to become more popular in Baton Rouge, he went on with a bang.
