Everyone has eyes on the college football national championship tonight, including Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins.
At halftime, Cousins tweeted out a photo comparing the 11th grade version of himself with the Alabama runningback, Bo Scarbrough in high school. Needless to say Cousins had yet to hit the gym.

Now if you were to compare a recent picture of the two, the diference would be just as polarizing.
Scarbrough is listed at 208 lbs and Cousins at 210.
For those that are living under a rock in college football season, if the Crimson Tide were to win tonight over Clemson it would be their fourth national championship in the past six seasons.
A mark no college program has ever accomplished.

In college, Cousins played at Michigan State for four years from 2008-11, starting in his last three seasons. He would lead the Spartans to a share of the 2010 Big Ten Championship, before there was a championship game, and go 1-2 in bowl games. Drafted by the Redskins, 102nd in the NFL Draft, Cousins became the backup to Robert Griffin III, and well you know the rest.
As a sophomore, Scarbrough is playing in his second national championship, his first as the leading rusher for Alabama. Through one half against Clemson in this year's championship, the back has two touchdowns and 76 yards. In his first year of eligibility for the NFL Draft, Scarbrough has already declared he will stay for his junior season with the Crimson Tide.
