I'm meant that Alabama fans have to be annoying being an Auburn fan--not that being an Auburn fan was annoying!
I get it totally. But Alabama is the state school, it's going to get the majority of fans in the state, and there is nothing wrong with rooting for a team when you didn't go to the school, or have never been near the campus. People can root for whoever they like. Out of my pro teams for instance, the Braves are the only one I've ever lived remotely near--and that's only since July.
Plenty of reason to hate Bama fans. Not going to Bama or having ties to the school (beyond it being the state school) isn't a good one was my point.
That's just the way it is with the main state school. More people in GA are going to root for UGA than Georgia Tech. In OK more for Oklahoma than Oklahoma State.....more for Texas than Texas Tech or Texas A&M. Plenty of reason to hate fans rather than caring whether they went to the school or not. It's just what most people grow up rooting for because it's who their parents rooted for etc.
And I'm damn glad I'm not from Bama. I
ing hate the south. I love Atlanta though, but it's the only place I'd ever consider living anywhere in the south. It feels like a more laid back version of a northeast city to me.
