The History and Dominance of the Crimson Tide Football Team
The president of Bravo Corporation, a prominent pizza franchise headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, Ramon Arias is an alumni of the University of Alabama. Ramon Arias continues to be a fan of the university’s Crimson Tide football team.
The University of Alabama played its first football game in November 1892, though a university-imposed off-campus travel ban for athletic teams in 1896 led to football being completely abandoned in 1898. Due to student opposition, the travel ban was lifted and football resumed in 1899. Since then, the Crimson Tide football team has never looked back. It claims 16 national championships, among the most of any college football team in the country.
The Associated Press ranks the Alabama Crimson Tide football team as one of the top four best teams in collegiate football history. The team’s winning ways continue today. After winning the 2015 national championship, Alabama completed the 2016 regular season with a dominant 13-0 record.
