It has been 13 years since his legendary viral video on the University of Alabama campus, but Irvin Carney still carries a deep hatred for the Tennessee Volunteers.

In 2007, Carney brought joy to Crimson Tide fans across the landscape as a sophomore. While majoring in Management Information Sciences or MIS, he was interviewed outside a building on his feelings about Tennessee.

Carney went on a rant that featured the colors, mascot, stadium (Neyland Stadium), quarterbacks, Philip Fulmer, and everything else beloved by the program.

He probably did not know how big the video would become at the time, but it now a tradition for Tide fans (old and young) to watch that video before facing Tennessee.

Memes were created from the video and slogans were formed too.

After earning his degree, Carney still feels the same. On Saturday, he was featured on SEC Network and picked Alabama by 30.

Since he made the video, the Tide has been 13-0 against the Vols.
