  College Football Rankings -  Week 2

Anybody got a favorite team(s)?

No doubt the Crimson Tide is everybody's #1 for strength this year. Very odd name for the mascot.

Crimson Tide is the name of the Alabama Crimson Tide, the sports teams of The University of Alabama. It may also mean:

In biology

  • Crimson tide or red tide, a phenomenon caused by the bloom of an algal species known as Karenia brevis

Mine has always been the University of Michigan, having graduated from there over 4 decades ago(dang, we're getting old).

 Bear Bryant was coaching the Tide when I was at Clemson.

Every year we played them and it was a given that the Tigers would get whooped - and we did.

Auburn was practically a repeat performance.

Lately we've had some revenge but not likely this year.


Image result for where did the name crimson tide originate from

Hugh Roberts, former sports editor of the Birmingham Age-Herald, is credited with coining the phrase "Crimson Tide" in an article describing the 1907 Iron Bowl played in Birmingham with Auburn a heavy favorite to win. The game was played in a sea of red mud which stained the Alabama white jerseys crimson.

John: Alabama was relentless - like a Tide - and went on to win the game!
