Alabama fans paint Tennessee’s rock with red and ‘Roll Tide’
Alabama and Tennessee are set to square off this weekend in what is a fierce rivalry because of conference alignment and geography, though the games have not exactly been competitive in recent years. The Crimson Tide have beaten the Vols by 31 points in each of their last three meetings. As a result, Alabama fans felt they had every right to claim “The Rock” on Tennessee’s campus as their own this week.
Twitter user @DandyAndy110 posted the photo you see above earlier this week, which shows that Tennessee’s famous rock — the same one that was used to mock Lane Kiffin a couple weeks ago — has been painted red with the words “Roll Tide” across it. The Bama fans who did the honors also felt the need to write “Go 2 Hell TN” underneath their rally cry.
As Eye on College Football noted, Tennessee has never beaten Alabama in Tuscaloosa in six attempts during the Nick Saban era. Don’t expect that to change on Saturday afternoon.
