Rivals of the Crimson Tide reacted on social media to Alabama’s dominant performance against Ohio State in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.
Alabama rolled through the SEC this season and did the same to Notre Dame and Ohio State in the College Football Playoff. The Crimson Tide picked up a dominant 52-24 win over the Buckeyes in Monday’s National Championship Game and were never really challenged at any point in the game.
All fans of rival SEC teams could do was watch with the false hope the Crimson Tide would somehow lose. Some even openly appreciated the great season from Alabama.
Rival fans weigh in on Alabama’s performance
Fans from LSU finally saw their Tigers give up the title of defending champions and had mixed reactions about Alabama being champions once again.
As an LSU fan, let me tell you something: Alabama is going to win. pic.twitter.com/v9iBQWg3Ju

I'm an LSU fan, so I can't really say that I'm rooting for alabama. But hats off to them, 10 games in the SEC is one hell of a task & to win them all is one hell of an accomplishment.

As an LSU fan I generally hate Alabama, but Najee Harris is from my hometown in Northern California – so I'm rooting for Alabama.

Auburn fans were a little more direct in their disdain for everything and anything Crimson Tide.
It’s really this simple. An Auburn fan would never in a million years root for Alabama

Tennessee fans are one day hoping to watch their Vols reach the level of the Crimson Tide. There was a bit of a clear theme from their fans about what rooting for Alabama means.
As a Tennessee fan I'm obliged to hate Alabama. But as a football fan they are so beautiful to watch. Juat machine-like.

I hate Ohio State as much as anyone but any Tennessee fan that’s rooting for Bama tonight isn’t a Tennessee fan

Georgia and Florida fans combined to take a more pro-SEC approach. If anything, they want to prove a point to teams like Ohio State that the SEC should always have two teams in the Playoff.

If Alabama wins I will claim it via SEC. If Alabama loses I will mock them relentlessly. Something something the duality of a Georgia fan.

The Crimson Tide are champions once again and the rest of the SEC can begin planning on how to find any way to slow down the defending champs.
