Folks watching Jeopardy in the state of Alabama on Tuesday probably threw their remote at the television screen.

That’s because a contestant on the show chimed in on a simple question about which university has the nickname “Crimson Tide.” His ignorant answer likely gave fans a coronary.


I didn’t grow up in the Southeast corner of the country, but I did grow up in the Northeast. I know that if someone said the New York Red Sox or Boston Yankees people would completely lose their minds. There would be riots in the streets!

However, Alabama fans can’t be too upset at the moment, as their squad recently advanced to the CFP National Championship. But their hatred for Auburn is still as real as ever.
