Less than half of University of Alabama students are actually from the state of Alabama. This means that while many of the current students on campus enjoy football, it doesn’t define their lives. This makes them entirely different from the 85% of Alabama fans who can’t get into the university and define their self worth by how the team does every Saturday.


This is also the reason Nick Saban has had to lecture students about leaving games early.

So what happens when Marisa Martin, a current Tide student, quizzed her fellow students on the team?

The 85% are going to be PISSED. 

And, while this is entertaining to watch, I’d much rather see the flip side of this. The 85% of Bama fans are quizzed on basic spelling, geography, and their knowledge of current events vs. their knowledge of Bama history.
