Quandarrius Robinson wonders why people hate Alabama so much

Alabama 5-Star outside linebacker signee, Quandarrius Robinson, asked a question via Twitter Friday, that could have several answers to it.

There is no doubt Alabama football is disliked by many. So, let’s look at the reasons why.

In the south, college football means more. It consumes the lifes of fans throughout the season, while highlights, game replays and recruiting news feed their addiction during the off-season. Then there is the fact Alabama has been on the top of the college football mountain for some time now.

The national hate towards the Tide begins with the fact that they have won five of the last 10 National Championships and before this season, they had never missed the CFB Playoffs since its creation. During this stretch, Alabama has also been able to grab multiple No. 1 ranked recruiting classes, with talent from across the United States.

Although there are several fan bases across the nation, who hate Alabama, the SEC is where the dismay is taken to another level. These fan bases face the Tide every single season and wins are usually hard to come by, but when they do, its a celebration. Fans rush the field and line up at airports to greet their team after a regular-season game.

The last thing that pushes the heat to a boiling point is the coaching legacy at Alabama. Paul ‘Bear’ Bryant and Nick Saban are No. 1 and No. 2 on ESPN’s greatest college football coaches of all-time list. Saban looks to be still in the swing of things and shows no signs of slowing down as the Tide landed another group of impressive recruits on Wednesday, including 5-Star, Robinson.

The hate will most likely continue and if Robinson and the rest of the 2020 recruiting class has anything to say about it, Alabama “will never miss the college football playoffs again”.
