With an opposing team's fans? In my case i was talking to some gators fans at work about SEC title game and it blew up into how Florida is more dominant and how terrible we are and they were trying any and everything in their power to discredit bama's championships. It grinds my gears that I have no bama fans to back me up

When to pull players with a big lead.
And the effectiveness of a well timed corner blitz.
Florida's tradition extends waaaaaaaayyyyyy back to the 1990s.

I have a couple USCe friends and it's Jadeveon Clowney. Yes he's an amazing, once in a decade athlete, but your team sucks and you've never won anything ever except for a single game in 2010 against one of our weaker teams in the Saban era.
Oh and i guess ill give them credit for their 1969 ACC championship hahah
To be fair, 2010 wasn't a weak team. It just underachieved due to entitlement issues.
Injuries and a brutal schedule..,
Basically every SEC team we played had two weeks to prepare for us.
So, what, 2009, 2010, and 2011 never happened?
Injuries, a brutal schedule, and we were very inexperienced on defense that year. I think the whole "entitlement" thing gets overplayed by a lot of Bama fans in regards to the 2010 season. Some years just weren't meant to be.
Bama had 12 NCs when UF won their first in 1996. They won their first the same way we won 2011 and were criticized for, by getting a rematch with a team they had aleady lost to in the regular season (FSU). Also, remind the gayturds UF has never had an undefeated season ever in their history including their 3 NC years. A UF fan trying to argue football tradition with a Bama fan is like a UF fan trying to argue basketball tradition with Kentucky. UF is a Johnny come lately in the history of college football with no tradition prior to Steve Spurrier in the 90s.
Man if you can't deal with Gator fans now God help you when they eventually beat us. 3 out 4 NC's should give you more than enough ammo to destroy anybody else's fanbase in an argument.
I would say the 15 National Championship we have. Thanks to ESPN who say's we have less than that. Always end up having to defend it.. When we shouldn't need to.
after beginning my time with Bama football under Curry's leadership and then having to live through the Dubose - Shula era, i LOVE talking football with opposing fans these days!
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
Do you work in FL? And if you cant handle a UF fan right now, with the state of their program you never will be able to. They just had a few pretty embarrassing seasons leading up to last year, where they closed it out with an ass-whoopin to Louisville.
Just remind them that we put their coach in the hospital, and then he retired for 2 years. If they are still talking after that, anything you say is pointless so dont bother

I work in gadsden AL but all 5 guys I work with in my station are all gator transplants from Florida and bandwagon Jorts wearers. I mean I can handle myself when talking football because I'm basically a walking bama encyclopedia but they're all blue and orange homers who take all facts out of the equation when debating football. I have an ill temper too and when people start to year put down my team , university, and coach it pisses me off to no end which is why they do it.
My boss is an Aubie so he rarely says anything either.
Put simply if Florida never won another game I'd gladly welcome it.
Thats terrible. Go push them off the falls! hahahahaha
UF had some great teams with Steve and 3 great years with Urban. If they want to argue semantics about how we count a couple NC's that are questionable let them. They are right about that - we really should take 1942 out.. But the simple fact remains that UA has been the premier football program in the South since 1925. We've had a few down years in our day, but there is no question about our up-years.
Bama Fans should be expert at dealing with jealous whiners
Have to go with UF just because I live in Jacksonville, FL. Most are tolerable, but it's the jorts wearin, Tebow lovin contingent that is intolerable. It's impossible to talk football with them without them hating on Bama.
After the coach in the hospital line---go for the jugular- we made tebow cry on national tv. Those two lines have shut up the worst of gator fans around here until they can actually do something impressive on the field.
