The number 1 college football team in the country, the Alabama Crimson Tide, lost their first game since the 2019 season on Saturday. Alabama fell in a shootout with Texas A&M who clinched the game on a last-second field goal. Now if you’re a fan of the Tide there is no need to panic. Winning out would still be more than enough to get them in the College Football Playoff. But Bama fans were feeling emotions this weekend that they hadn’t felt in a while. And it certainly united the rest of the college football world, because success, which Bama has had a lot of in recent years, can lead to dislike.
One new country artist, Conner Smith, is someone who understandably doesn’t have a lot of love for Alabama as a Tennessee fan. And he decided to write a song about it. The song blew up on TikTok and he released it on Friday. The song’s title? “I Hate Alabama”. The next day Alabama proceeded to lose to Texas A&M, their first loss in 650 days. Coincidence? Probably. If you’re superstitious? You could easily blame Smith. What do we know for certain? It’s ironic.
Keep in mind football is a part of the song, but the real dislike in it is over a girl. Or so it says. But make no mistake I don’t think Conner Smith was disappointed in the outcome of the game Saturday night.
