When it comes to college fan bases, the debate rages on about what school has the most die-hard fans, but none can hold a candle to those fans wearing crimson and white on game day. If you're heading to Tuscaloosa and SEC country, prepare to yell "Roll Tide" and sing "Rammer Jammer" all day long.
And they've got plenty to cheer about. Alabama is competitive in every corner of the NCAA, but their football program is the Tide's crowning jewel. Alabama football has a whopping 14 national championships to its name - the most of the Top 25 era. And they've won just under half of the last 13 national titles, making them the most dominant team in NCAA football in recent history.
Equally unmatched is how they do game day in Tuscaloosa. From tailgating on the quad to the Million Dollar Band's famed Elephant Stomp to watching the players take the historic Walk of Champions, there's nothing else quite like it.
Of course, while every fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide probably has a ton of gear to show off, there's no chance they have NEARLY enough to celebrate the oldest and largest public university in the state of Alabama. Don't expect to find any War Eagle favorites here. This holiday, ditch the gift cards and roll in with some serious Crimson Tide gear.
For the Alabama Fan Who Dreams in Crimson and White
When Crimson Tide fanatics lay down to sleep at night, what do they dream of?

Just don't tell head coach Nick Saban. I hear he's not too fond of Crimson Tide students these days...
