Photo: Charles Barkley takes a shot at recent Alabama arrests

That's a photo of Charles Barkley on TNT's Inside the NBA on Thursday night, which probably doesn't seem all that appropriate for a college football blog. However, as you've no doubt noticed, Barkley is wearing a bandage on his head.

Barkley, who played for Auburn, explained to his co-hosts and all the people watching at home that he was wearing the bandage because he'd been mugged and robbed on a trip to Tuscaloosa. Which, if you've been paying any attention, is a shot at the recent arrests of four Alabama football players charged with second-degree robbery.

Aren't rivalries the best?
