    People can be ruthless when it comes to football.

    When longtime University of Tennessee football fans think of 1970s-era coach Bill Battle, a variety of thoughts come to mind.

    Some also remember the popular opinion circulating at the time -- that he was too nice to be a head coach. And many still seem to recall the moving van that was sent to his house during a struggling stretch that brought out negativity among some Vol fans.

    Battle had the last laugh...he founded CLC, collegiate licensing Company...that does billions each year...his company has about 80% of that business.

    Arent you an Alabama fan?

    Bandwagon of course with the other 75% of their fanbase. There have been several pieces written about the recruiting violation of that hole, what is and will continue to be covered by the entire state.

    I live in Alabama so it's easy to dislike Alabama fans, bandwagon and all.

    also, you can never accuse someone who is a titans fan as being a bandwagoner.

    College sports is usually where the bulk of bandwagon fans are.
    Ive got a buddy who is an Alabama football fan and a North Carolina basketball fan, just makes no sense to me.

    I am from Tennessee. My favorite teams are the Vols (in every college sport), Titans, Predators, Grizzlies and Braves.

    I also go for Navy (college), as ive grown into liking them after being on a USMC can working at the NCO club as old alumni guys come in to watch it. Big event for my son and I each year.

    Other than that, I dislike all other college team. Then much further down in the pit of hatred is my hatred of Alabama football.
