We like to complain about a lot of things as Bama fans: the grass, the student section, fans who wear jerseys, and those that ignore you when you give them a Roll Tide.
One thing that really annoys me is when fans don't understand basic Bama lingo, specifically that "Crimson Tide" is a noun and "Roll Tide" is not. I hate when you hear recruits say I have to commit or root for the Roll Tide. We're the Crimson Tide and "Roll" is what we do!
This is stupid, I know, but to me this is our version of Auburn recruits (and former heisman winners) saying the University of Auburn.

It's spelled usage. Go Roll Tides.
Drives me crazy too man. Let's go Roll Tides!
Vince Lombardi was asked how it felt to have the best football team in the world. He replied, I don't know. We haven't played Alabama yet.
Iron bowl - that classic matchup between those war eagles and the roll tide!
