Five Reasons to Hate Alabama

Posted By on Thu, Sep 13, 2007 at 12:47 PM

In case you need any extra help getting fired up, we'll be providing a handy pre-game cheat sheet detailing why you should hate each one of the Razorbacks' opponents this fall. Some weeks will be easier than others...

1.Bear Bryant Bear Bryant Bear Bryant. In case you hadn't heard, Bear Bryant is the greatest Bear Bryant who ever Bear Bryanted. God Bear Bryants that he's Bear Bryant. And guess what - 25 years later, Alabama fans still love to Bear Bryant about how much they Bear Bryant Bear Bryant.

2. Nick Saban. He hasn't done anything to us personally, but he just seems like kind of a tool. Bama fans love him now, but we'll see how they feel when he jumps ship to go to Team X for even more money in a few years.

3. 1964. We knew a guy in college who had a wall clock where each hour was the year of one of Alabama's 12 national championships. Only problem is that it should have been an 11-hour clock because it was erroneously claiming credit for the 1964 championship. No respect, people, no respect...

4. They Didn't Exactly Roll out the SEC Welcome Mat. The Hogs didn't receive much Southern hospitality from the Tide upon their joining the SEC...three straight football butt-kickings (followed by that glorious Lunney-to-Meadors win in '95) and two heartbreaking last-second defeats during the '92 basketball season still leave a bad taste in our mouths.

5. Post-Katrina Corruption. Ok, this is probably more of a political issue than a sports one, but who's really surprised that it was somehow rigged that tax breaks intended for Katrina victims are being used to build Crimson Tide-themed condos in Tuscaloosa? We're sure that the Bear Bryant wall art is just fabulous, though.

    Charles Balentine remains well-known among Razorback fans for hitting the 3rd biggest shot in Arkansas history (we'll give you two guesses as to what #1 and #2 are), but many other details of his storied career are slipping away into the mists of time.
