I can’t figure out why the fighting crimson tide doesn’t strike fear in my heart! What exactly is a crimson tide?

How does it relate to an elephant?


It's an algae bloom, and really terrifying

Dangit, you beat me to it. I guess Crimson is supposed to be a particularly terrifying shade of the Reds. Because, there ain't nothing terrifying about Tide, unless you're dirty laundry.

I always thought that was the type of Tide they used to wash the elephant, thanks for clearing that up for me. I'm glad I never told anyone that was what the crimson tide meant!!!;)

or "Toxic Algae" or "Deadly Protozoans" or "Intimidating One-celled Organisms". Not sure where the elephants tie in though.

household sync up their "cycles".

All men & boys in the home have to hide in fear for their lives for about a week every month.

If the Midol runs out, males are subject to human sacrifice to appease the cramp gods.

It's pronounced "L Heff A" and it means "The Boss".

describing them marching down the field like an unstoppable "tide of crimson." Sort of like Munsberger made the hill "the most exciting 25 seconds in college football." I think it happened back in the 30s, maybe Old Joe can enlighten us on that as it was before my time.

Yep, my friend's dad is a huge Alabama fan as he's originally from there, and that's the answer he gave me whenever I asked him.
