What Does That Mean?

This inaugural edition of What Does That Mean?, we will explain the meaning of Alabama’s Crimson Tide.

Per Wikipedia:

“Early newspaper accounts of the university’s football squad simply referred to them as the “varsity” or the “Crimson White”. The first nickname popular with the media was the “Thin Red Line”, which was used until 1906. Hugh Roberts, former sports editor of the Birmingham Age-Herald, is credited with coining the phrase “Crimson Tide” in an article describing the 1907 Iron Bowl played in Birmingham with Auburn a heavy favorite to win. The game was played in a sea of red mud which stained the Alabama white jerseys crimson. The headline for the article was “Crimson Tied”, referring to the 6-6 tie Alabama had with Auburn, who had been heavily favored before the game.”

Per Steely Dan:

“They got a name for the winners in the world

I want a name when I lose

They call Alabama the Crimson Tide

Call me Deacon Blues”
