Texas Fan Praises Crimson Tide Fans After Alabama Loss
it's safe to say there are a lot of emotions surrounding the Alabama and Texas game from this season.
There's not a single Crimson Tide fan who thought that Alabama would lose the game in that fashion, and Texas fans have been eating it up.
The ten-point loss definitely hurt, but one thing that hurt a little more has been this video that has since gone viral. In the video, fans can allegedly be heard telling Texas players “to go back to the projects” and making other offensive comments.
The video has made its way to the University of Alabama and a spokesperson provided a statement on the behavior displayed in the video.
"We are disgusted by reports of vile language and inappropriate behavior Saturday night. To be clear, we condemn this behavior, and it will not be tolerated in our venues," said Alex House, UA's Assistant Director of Communications. "It is not representative of UA or our values."
Completely opposite of the video that has since gone viral, a Texas fan gave his thoughts on Alabama fans after his positive experience in Tuscaloosa at the game.
"Tonight I went to the Texas - Alabama game and I have to say that the Bama fans are the most polite group of fans of an opposing team that I’ve ever been around," said Billy Fitzgerald.
His comments were posted in a public Facebook group called SEC Super Conference.
"Yes, of course, there were the drunken mouthy college kids but that’s to be expected at a college football game. Even after the loss they were so polite and they were congratulating us. It was quite crazy to me. I’ll admit that I’ve been to Texas games in Austin and our fans are not quite as polite, nor were the fans at any other venues I’ve been to. I was very impressed. Thank you Tuscaloosa for being a great host and I hope to be back again soon!"
