I can agree with that. I remember as a kid in the 90s how much orange you would see on gameday around town.  I am a bit surprised about how passionate the fanbase is considering how bad they have been. I highly doubt many other larger schools could pull off the numbers they do with such a poor record. I know actual attendance in the seats wasn't this high but the fact they averaged 95K last year, or 93% on their worst year ever is impressive. But speaking as someone that hated them in the 90s, they reallllllyyyyy need to get over '98, and they really need to quit thinking firing everybody is the answer. Not much the coaching can do when you have talent this bad. They made Charlotte's defensive line look like a powerhouse.

Their coaching has been horrendous, I thought them giving Butch Jones 5 years was extremely generous (especially considering they should have hired Butch Davis instead to begin with) and Dooley never should have been an SEC coach. I’m pretty sure Dooley went a whole offseason without getting a single offensive lineman to commit one year. 

Yeah I grew up hating UT, watching Peyton Manning and T Martin whip us all over the field. I can’t say much about clinging to ‘98, though, it was a great year for them and us Bama fans clung to Bear and ‘92 for long enough to where we can’t talk crap about other fanbases living in the past.

Living in the Tri-State area here, the thing I find easy to ridicule is all the Bama Bandwagon fans. Yes, they've had great success, but so many "appendages" (many who have never even been to Tuscaloosa) put their flags and stickers on their houses, cars, clothes, etc. and act like they're "winners".  Even the longtime fans think they're absurd. Everyone loves a winner. And Saban's success has produced a lot of fans for future generations, but IMHO it just cheapens the brand. It's like anyone can go into a Cracker Barrel and come out a Tide fan. Sour grapes? Not hardly... as I went to Vandy. As one longtime Alabama graduate said to me about 20 years ago through his thick eyeglasses. "You mean you didn't pick your college on how well they do in football?" he said incredulously.

The worst people are those who have two hats: an Alabama hat and a Kentucky hat.

Guess which times of the year they wear each?

I love giving those people a hard time, especially when they try to justify it. The Bama/Patriots football fans are the ones that get to me.

So we've beaten both the Eagles and the Patriots this season. PRETTY SURE THAT MAKES US THE CHAMPS NOW.

I knew that Bill Belichick was born in Nashville, but the CBS commentators of the game today noted several times that he has a home in Franklin. He lives there quite a bit during the off-season & that he makes a habit of going to the B'way Honky Tonks (Specifically Tootsie's) and he loves the lifestyle in Middle Tennessee.
