It’s good to be on top, isn’t it Alabama fans?
With 21-0 still fresh in the minds of the Crimson Tide faithful, football spilled into a different sport.
Round 3 of ‘Bama-LSU during the 2011-2012 college sports season was on the basketball court Wednesday night. Two teams vying for an NCAA bid in a conference game that means a lot.
When LSU took the ball up the floor and crossed midcourt on its opening possession, it was only the second time this week that a Tigers team crossed the halfway point against a Crimson Tide defense.
The Tuscaloosa faithful decided to applaud LSU for their efforts with a standing ovation.
Later in the game the crowd chanted “just like Monday” when ‘Bama jumped out to a 21-point lead.
‘Bama ended up winning the game 69-53, but that’s not the point here.
The fans in SEC country are absolutely obsessed with football and have no issues taking their passions to the hardwood.
In this specific scenario I get it.
Holding a team to one trip past the 50-yard-line in a BCS championship game is unheard of. That defense is going to be considered one of the greatest of all time. It may have five first-round picks in the NFL draft.
But c’mon ‘Bama, it's basketball season right now. You’ve been celebrating the football championship for three days. Time to start thinking about your basketball team that is quietly 13-3 and in second place in the SEC.
After all, the Tide are only 2-1 against the Tigers this season.
