School is about to start back up again, so it’s time to remind everyone WHICH Alabama university is the best. If you didn’t already know the answer, here it is. These are the top 10 ways Bama is better than Auburn!
1. Football National Championships
Let’s get this one out of the way first. Alabama football is 16 strong in national championships, while Auburn is reeling in a measly two. Womp, womp.
2. Official Colors
Auburn’s official colors are orange and blue. They are complete opposites of each other, which makes them clash. However, Alabama’s official colors are crimson and white, classy colors that can be dressed up or down. Who looks good in orange, anyway?
3. Not Just a Football School
Though most people think of Alabama as being only a “football school”, we have other sports too. Most notably, Alabama’s Women’s Gymnastics have 8 national championships. In 2012, Women’s Softball and Golf both earned the national trophy. Men’s Golf has 2 national championships as well. What is Auburn known for?
4. Speaking of National Championships
We can’t leave out the one and only University of Alabama Million Dollar Band. They follow the team everywhere and make pop-up appearances. From Yea, Alabama to Tusk to Basket Case, they provide all the favorites. 500 members strong. They’re amazing and the name has a better ring to it than the Auburn University Marching Band.
5. Toomer’s Corner
Yeah, I never understood it either.
6. Respect and Sportsmanship
At Alabama, no one other than coaches, players, and other important personnel touch the blades of grass at Bryant-Denny. At Jordan-Hare Stadium, however, fans rush the field, destroying everything in their path. We respect the process happening on the field and let it unfold naturally.
7. Nick Saban
With 4 national championships under his belt, Nick is THE MAN. Everyone loves him (and Terry, too). Saban boats a .862 winning percentage while at Alabama. Overall coaching record: 205-61-1. As for Gus, his winning percentage at Auburn is .660. Plus, Nick is a #fatherfigure.
8. Bryant-Denny Stadium
Previously mentioned, our pride and joy Bryant-Denny holds 101,821 of Bama’s biggest fans. Jordan-Hare Stadium’s capacity maxes at 87,451 (if that many people would want to show up). Also, why do Auburn fans say Jerdan?
9. Sweet Home Alabama and Dixieland Delight
2 songs, known and loved by Bama fans. Enough said.
10. 45-35-1 Football Record
We all know what’s rolling on Iron Bowl weekend and it’s not toilet paper. Roll Tide!
All of this is to be taken lightly #friendlyrivalry!
