For the second season in a row and third time in four years, the Alabama Crimson Tide football team won the BCS National Championship Game and visited President Barack Obama at the White House. 

The president, who seems to genuinely enjoy these trips from championship teams, offered the following quip (via Jim Dunaway of CBS):

The normally reserved and stoic Alabama head coach, Nick Saban, offered up his own quip on the matter (from Erick Smith of USA Today):

The proceedings had a distinctly Alabama feel to them, as The Crimson White pointed out on Twitter:

Nothing like bringing a little Alabama to Washington D.C., right? And if you listen to Dennis Dodd of CBS, a crimson section should be added to the White House:

I'm sure Tide fans would say "The Nick Saban Wing" has a nice ring to it. The rest of the country probably wouldn't agree.

Alabama finished 13-1 last season and absolutely crushed Notre Dame in the title game, 42-14. I think it is safe to say that Saban has established a college football dynasty in Tuscaloosa.

The Crimson Tide will be losing some very talented players to the NFL this season, as Dee Milliner, Chance Warmack, D.J. Fluker, Eddie Lacy and Jesse Williams should all be top-50 picks in the 2013 NFL draft.

And what's scary is that the team should once again be very dangerous next season, with another excellent recruiting class and starting quarterback AJ McCarron returning with a chance to win his third straight national championship.

President Obama might want to have the White House staff start making up those cots ahead of time.
