Fight The Power!
Nipsey> heyPretty sure this is universal for all college fan bases.I understand it completely. It's the same way at OU. The worst OU fans are the ones who never went to school there. Or anywhere for that matter.I keep telling people not from here you just can't understand it. Way back in Saban's first year when Alabama played Florida State in Jacksonville the ticket office promised me a bunch of tickets they didn't deliver on. I tell you, I would have been better off to curse their kids and spit on them walking down the street compared to telling them somebody had messed with their Alabama tickets. I got called every name in the book for that. I filled every order out of my own pocket so all I was telling them that they were going to have to wait a few extra weeks to receive them. You'd think I had traded secrets to the Iranians or something. It's not the Alabama graduates. I know a bunch of them and other than just the friendly ribbing they are totally normal. It's the sidewalk bandwagon fans who've never sat foot in a class on that campus that are the worst. Most of them couldn't even find Tuscaloosa on the map, much less have gone to a game or class there. The ones in the stands are tame compared to the Facebook posts I was seeing from people I grew up with last night.
