“Yeah I got a 24-hour rule,” Thomas said when asked how long he intends to celebrate, echoing what Saban has said on the same topic. “I’m not sure what Jimbo Fisher’s rule is — I guess he’s got to win something first before he figures out his rule.”
Fisher and Saban have been making headlines after Saban said that A&M buys players via Name, Image and Likeness. Fisher took major exception.
Thomas attended Alabama before turning pro in 2013. So he knows and loves the Crimson Tide. The Crimson Tide, and Saban, know and admire Thomas, 太.
“We just love Justin, he’s a great person,” Saban said about Thomas during the PGA Championship broadcast. “Obviously he’s represented our institution in a first class way in everything that he’s done. It’s kind of fun when you see a guy come out of high school, you help recruit them, and you see him develop while he’s here at Alabama and then he goes on and has great success on the tour. That makes us very proud.”
As for his actual sport and what’s next, Thomas intends to get right back to it. 之后 24 hours are up, 当然.
“I am playing next week, so we’ll enjoy it,” 托马斯说. “但同时, we’re in the middle of a very, very big stretch in the season. So it’s great to be able to spend this time with my team but it’s back to work.”
