Nick Saban is pissed off and he wants you to know it. He’s pissed off because football is a game and it’s supposed to be fun—fun for his players, fun for his coaches, fun for him. How dare people say they’re frustrated with an ugly win? How dare they?
Ok, what I’m about to say is blasphemy but it must be noted—the entire world is not fascinated with college football. They should be, but they aren’t.
Crimson elephants with badly bruised egos can be yours for a mere $25.
When I set out to write an article about Bobby Livingston, the ironworker who allegedly used a crane to hang a Bama flag at Kyle Field in College Station, I expected to write a quick article about the merits of people on both sides of the issue. It seemed clear from the beginning that most Bama fans (perhaps some other fans) viewed it as part of a growing rivalry. But there were also those who decried Livingston’s shenanigans as being unsafe and not belonging on the job site.
In fine fashion, it was announced that Alabama and USC (yes, THAT USC, not the bogus USC in the SEC) would be kicking off the 2016 season in Dallas at the Jerry-Dome. Alabama has sort of made a habit of these types of games under Saban.
Fan is short for fanatical.
Every fan has his/her arch enemy fan. I’m talking Cobra Commander vs. Flint here—pure unadulterated hatred.
This raw emotion manifests itself in many ways. Probably the most entertaining is the scholastic achievement prowess, or lack thereof, that fanatical college football followers have for their loathed rival.
