Former Alabama safety Landon Collins went into the 2015 Sugar Bowl with expectations of a W.
He told us that much in a Instagram post before the game:
Obviously, Urban Meyer and Ezekiel Elliott had different ideas. The Buckeye duo delivered a 42-35 humbling to @the_humble21.
Collins, who now plays for the New York Giants, face Ezekiel Elliott and the red-hot Dallas Cowboys this Sunday in New Jersey. The Giants delivered the Cowboys the only loss of their season in the season opener.
Despite that, Collins is still relishing a rematch with Elliott for sins committed against him in the Sugar Bowl loss.
"They cheap shotted us. They hit all our best players," Collins said. "Oh they cheap shot me in the shoulder, (couldn't) tackle no more. Took out our best linebacker (Reggie Ragland). Blindsided him ... concussed him. Then we had a rookie in there, then they took out a defensive tackle."
Some football coaches would call hitting their best players a sound football strategy.
The Cowboys and the Giants kick off Sunday at 8:30 ET on NBC.
