Mark Ingram blasts ESPN’s Jemele Hill for her looks
Former Alabama star Mark Ingram was an honorary captain for Monday night’s BCS National Championship Game, and a photo of him standing next to Crimson Tide running back Derrick Henry went viral for a very obvious reason — the size difference.
ESPN’s Jemele Hill was one of many people who called attention to the staggering height disparity between Alabama’s two Heisman Trophy-winning tailbacks.

For whatever reason, Ingram did not appreciate what was clearly a light-hearted remark from Hill. When a Twitter follower called his attention to Hill’s tweet, the Saints running back fired back by insulting Hill’s looks.

Ingram shouldn’t be insecure about his height, especially since it didn’t seem to bother NFL teams and hasn’t stopped him from becoming a great player. And based on what he said about his relationship with Henry, he shouldn’t mind being compared to the current Tide running back. That seemed a bit harsh.
