The Alabama/LSU football showdown isn't until this weekend -- but thanks to the raging smack talk that's already erupted between both sides, we learned Tide fans are called "Gumps" ... and Tigers fans don't have class (allegedly).

Alabama's stats are extremely impressive, and much more impressive than LSU's. Our offense is ranked 22nd, and theirs is ranked in the 40s. Their offensive game is all they really have to try to run over us. Our defense this season is better than our 2009 National Championship team's defensive line, so there's no way their offense is going to run over them. It's physically impossible, in fact. We'll just wear them down. This will be a close-scoring game, and a fight for every yard until the clock runs out.

Correction: Lol! Never been called a Gump. But fans are pretty polite with rivalries and usually end up only giving friends a hard time until the game, so it's a minority who take it too seriously. We truly only care about what unfolds on the field. Alabama fans are generally referred to as "Bammers," Auburn fans are called "Barners at the cow college," and LSU fans are called "Corndogs." These are the most common nicknames, since I have relatives who cheer for/are alumni of those other colleges and I'm a UA student. LSU tailgates have so much fried food and frying batter in the air in and around their stadium that the smell sticks to your skin and clothes. They end up smelling like corndogs. But the heavy emotional toll of the rivalry is a little more low-key, since just about any path getting to Alabama's colossal football stadium takes you through April 27th tornado damage, where residents and some students lost their lives and homes. I hope LSU fans are more respectful of these areas, or else things really will get out of hand. But there's no doubt that both teams will be bringing all we've got on the field. For all we care, this is the National Championship game. The stakes are just as high.

Rolleaux TIDE Rolleaux......Tigers BLEAUX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Either Team could easily win....too close to call. I just hope that it stays fun and that the LSU people respect our campus and stay away from our tornado devastated areas with their turkey fryers and men who dance on light posts (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-Xjud24o-Y&feature=youtube_gdata_player)
Keep it fun y'all!!!! RTR!!!!WE LOVE OUR ST.NICK!

You BAMA fans are all idiots. You ALL live in the past, talking about a coach that has been dead since the 80's- he was a DRUNK you ********! Accept it. "Roll Tide?" You scream this crap on everyday of the week, you are a pitiful excuse for a fanbase and are a laughing stock across the nation. Only you think that you are the best and etc. etc. To everyone else, you all are a bunch of fools. Class?? You have none- bury your heads in whatever whisky bottle you came out of- NOBODY cares about UA football except for you. Nobody!!!

BTW, LSU fans are called "corn dogs"!! Also, Louisiana is known as having the state with the highest rate of gonorrhea in the USA. So, tell your resident corn dog that he better watch throwing stones because his glass house is MUCH bigger than Alabama's!! ROLL TIDE ROLL!!

"gumps?" I've been a bama fan my entire life, and have NEVER heard of the word, "gump." Most opposing teams refer to us as "bammers," and LSU fans are referred to as "corndogs."

...Maybe your so called reporter should read up on his facts next time before he speaks. And real classy of him, hating on a town who just recently went through total devastation. I was there the day of the tornado, and it sickens me that he talks like that about a town that has went through so much when I'm sure he has never been there in his life. Get a life.... or better yet, choke on your corndog when the tide rolls over you this weekend.

BTW- Bama fans are called Bammers. They live within a circle in which nobody outside of that circle cares. But, every single non- college fan believes they do. Yes folks, this fanbase has the #1 percentage of non- college fans. Never stepped foot on a campus but scream "Roll Tide" every time someone sneezes, farts or cooks a good meal. How ridiculous. Just a bunch of uneducated idiots running around yelling catch phrases , none of which could tell you anything about football as long as they win. I hate your team, I loathe your fans and you will never amount to anything in life- Alabama Football is all you have everyday, all day you backwoods rejects.

With out a doubt Alabama has the classier fans. As in they actually go to the school or graduated from it. When I see a LSU shirt and ask them "What is your major or what did you graduate in? I get this look like what do you mean, I'm just a fan. Fine and dandy but the obsession over a place that isn't your Alma mater seems um...interesting and why?
