I grew up a luke-warm Alabama fan during the '50s and '60s ... mostly because that's just what 'everyone' did. In '68 I started work as a civilian at Eglin AFB in Fla, and I worked with grads/fans of both schools. I noticed that I liked the Auburn people MUCH more than the largely arrogant Bama fans. By 1970 I had become a Dye-Hard Auburn fan. Much later, I attended the U of A - Tuscaloosa and earned a BA and two MA degrees .... just made me even more an "Auburn man." War Damn Eagle!!!!!!
