SEC football fans are passionate and somewhat insane. Anyone who follows college football is well aware of that. Being a hardcore fan is one thing, but Alabama and Auburn fans have a tendency to take it too far quite often. Believe it or not, the tree poisoner and the guy who yelled roll tide immediately following Osama bin Laden’s death have nothing on what some fans have been plotting recently.
The Alabama blog I Bleed Crimson Red called our attention to a criminal case in the making on Monday. On an Auburn fan page through Rivals.com, Auburn fans have been discussing the potential of intentionally getting into car crashes with Alabama players. In fact, one user even implied that someone on the message board was responsible for the car accident Mark Ingram was involved in last month.
“I think the easiest way to get to the bottom of this is to send someone from the Bunker to tuscaloosa undercover to just drive around until they spot (Tony) Richardson in his SUV and get into a little fender-bender with him,” user Wyatt4Auburn wrote. “Any volunteers?”
“Well, we sent AuburnProud to Huntsville to give Ingram a little going away present,” Prowlin TIger 99 responded. “Anyone have a high mileage truck or SUV with a sturdy brushguard looking for adventure?”
As I Bleed Crimson Red points out, this is clear cut criminal conspiracy. There’s a good chance it’s just another case of people feeling tough behind a computer screen, but plotting an attack on someone should not be taken lightly. Hopefully someone is forced to answer some questions about it.
