This is true. I live in Oklahoma and 3 years ago before all the Roll Tide/ War Eagle commercials and documentaries, few people would recognize War Eagle and any sports fan would know what Roll Tide Meant.
It didn't hurt that ESPN did a commercial where the only thing said was Roll Tide and about 20 times. Plus when you win 3 of the last 4 NC 's the world is going to know your name. Living in the hall of fame.....

ROLL TIDE!! The passion of those two words cant be replicated.
Nothing quite has the quality of a good "Roll Tide"
For you and all SEC fans, you are correct. On a national stage??? There are a few that do not know that "Roll Tide" is a cheer for Alabama, but a probable majority of US citizens that have no idea what "War Eagle" means.
"Roll Tide" is probably the most universally known chant/cheer for a college team that does not contain the university name in it. Some Canadians and some Germans in Afghanistan knew what "Roll Tide" meant.
"Roll Tide" is like the Yankees of college cheers (most well known)
"War Eagle" is like a very popular AAA team or maybe the Brewers (well known locally, but not nationally outside of baseball fans).
