Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson, a Monroe native, used some of his post-game facetime to take a bit of a jab at some Louisiana-born LSU Tigers, like Leonard Fournette.

In the week leading up to the game, Fournette said he chose LSU over Alabama because "everybody kept going to Alabama, Bama, Bama. Why not be different? Why not create your own legacy?"

Other in-state players, like Travin Dural (Breaux Bridge), expressed similar feelings this past week.

"Most of the guys on the team had offers from here and there and wanted to be different and come here (to LSU) and instead of going there (to Alabama) when everyone else was going there," quoted Dural as saying.

Apparently, Robinson got wind of those comments and had this to say after the Crimson Tide's 30-16 win over the Tigers...

"A lot of people were saying they wanted to be different because everyone was coming to Alabama," Robinson said, according to "You can choose to be different, you can choose to be whatever you want to be, but as long we keep winning I'm not really worried about who is trying to be different or trying to not be like everybody else. We just keep doing what we're doing."

As Advocate columnist Scott Rabalais writes, the Tigers certainly could've used a player like Robinson vs. Alabama.

"The truth is this game looks like it was lost on the recruiting trail, where Alabama’s stack of top-ranked classes have been just better enough than LSU’s year upon year, especially it appears on the lines. How much could LSU have used Monroe’s Cam Robinson at left tackle, for example," Rabalais wrote in his post-game column.

For now, Robinson is 2-0 against LSU. He gets a chance to go for 3-0 on Nov. 5, 2016.
