This is the only thing that Alabama and Oklahoma fans can agree on during Orange Bowl

Why Randy Martin’s granddaughter chose an Alabama football Saturday to get married this fall remains a mystery and source of frustration for him.

But she did, causing him to miss his beloved Tide whip up on some foe.

“I wasn’t real happy,” Martin said while shaking his head. “She should have got married on a Sunday. I can’t understand it.”

And why Stephanie Roarke’s first son decided to enter the world hours after Alabama’s humbling 2000 loss to Southern Miss still gives her wonder.

She was rushed to the hospital in her Alabama football attire.

“There’s a bunch of women who have almost had babies at Alabama games because we take it very, very seriously,” Roarke said.

The parking lot outside Hard Rock Stadium before Saturday’s College Football Playoff semifinal contained as many of those sorts of stories as there were Alabama and Oklahoma license plates.

The problem was it was hard to distinguish one set of fans from the others, what with all the crimson. Crimson is the primary school color for Oklahoma and Alabama.

So there were crimson flags flying everywhere.
