Obnoxious Alabama Football May Be, But "Convinced" Is a Better Word

In response to a FoxSports.com article listing Alabama as the eighth most obnoxious fan base in college football, I present some statistics: 1925, 1926, 1930, 1934, 1941, 1961, 1964, 1965, 1973, 1978, 1979, 1992—Alabama Crimson Tide national champions.

Besides the above 12 National Championship Teams, the Tide was also named No. 1 by at least one poll in 1945, 1962, 1966, and 1977.

A whopping 21 SEC Titles (some were shared with other SEC teams).

Before the BCS, there was its forerunner, the Bowl Alliance. Alabama won the first Bowl Alliance by defeating the No. 1-ranked Miami Hurricanes, 34-13, in the 1993 Sugar Bowl. 

True Alabama Crimson Tide fans know that there are other storied college football teams in America. We appreciate good football and other great schools.

So, please, pardon the Bama fans. We do not want to seem arrogant.

We are just so proud to wear Crimson and White that sometimes we forget. That is not hard to do when Alabama has these kind of records.
